Equipment Access Door Opened as Disney World Begins Reimagining of Test Track at EPCOT

    A few days ago, Test Track 2.0 closed permanently, with Imagineers poised and ready to begin work on the 3.0 version of the attraction. While visiting EPCOT today, we noticed that a side access door into the building was propped open, and scaffolding was being built to access the area.

    As best we can tell, this section of the building is somewhere near the start of the Capability Test portion of the attraction, perhaps near the descent area pictured below.

    In the screenshot below, we can see the access door on the southern side of the round Test Track building. In the upper left of the screenshot is the attraction’s entrance, and the outdoor loop would be to the right of the edge of the image. To the south is the Odyssey Pavilion, and in the lower right of the image you can see a portion of the Mexico Pavilion.

    Here’s a look at the open access door from closer to the ride. A caution sign on the door indicated that it was not to be used as an exit to the attraction, but rather as an access point for equipment only.

    Disney hasn’t shared many details of the reimagining, but we believe that the track layout will remain the same, while the vehicles receive an overdue rebuild.

    Test Track 3.0: What’s Next for EPCOT’s High-Speed Attraction?

    Back in September 2023, Disney announced that Test Track would be reimagined for a third time at EPCOT. Here’s the announcement and concept art for the interior retheme of the attraction:

    Imagineers along with teams from Chevrolet are reaching back into history for inspiration—from the original World of Motion—and bringing that spirit of optimism to the next iteration of the Test Track attraction.

    In addition to changes to the interior of the attraction, Disney World released concept art for the updated exterior of the attraction in April 2024.
