Tomorrowland PeopleMover Refurbishment Extended into 2021 at Magic Kingdom

    What we originally hoped would be a months-long refurbishment is seemingly getting out of hand as the Tomorrowland PeopleMover refurbishment has now extended into 2021. According to the internal refurbishment calendar, the Tomorrowland PeopleMover will be closed through January 2, 2021.

    Back in July, we reported that the Tomorrowland PeopleMover would be closed for weeks, if not longer, when the general consensus was that it was a day-by-day closure. Since then, the refurbishment date has been extended time and again.

    According to our earlier reporting, Disney is working a full replacement of all of the magnetic linear induction motors along the 5400′ track. As you might remember, the attraction was having issues before the parks closed that led to some significant downtime. Reportedly, Disney was trying to replace the motors as they failed, but with lower crowds in the theme parks since they reopened in mid-July, they have opted for a full replacement.

    The Tomorrowland PeopleMover didn’t reopen with the rest of Magic Kingdom on July 11th following the COVID-19 closures. The PeopleMover was experiencing issues even before the theme parks closed.
