Work Resumes on Walt Disney World Railroad Tracks at Fantasyland Station

Construction has resumed on the train tracks of the Walt Disney World Railroad Fantasyland station. The tracks were removed for refurbishment and replacement in 2020. Their replacement began soon after, but construction seemed to pause for the past year even as refurbished Walt Disney World Railroad engines were tested nearby.

The railroad has been closed for almost four years due to the construction of TRON Lightcycle / Run.

Walt Disney World Railroad will presumably reopen around the same time TRON Lightcycle / Run opens next year.
