The Tomorrowland Transit Authority located inside Tomorrowland at Magic Kingdom has been closed ever since before the temporary park closures, which took place back in March.
Once the theme parks reopened mid-July, Guests were hoping to see the PeopleMover open back up with the rest of the attractions, however, this wasn’t the case.
Guests weren’t sure what exactly was happening with this Tomorrowland attraction as Disney never officially closed it down for refurbishment. Some were speculating that Disney closed the attraction due to the construction work being done on the upcoming Tomorrowland roller coaster, TRON while others suspected Disney just needed new parts to fix the TTA PeopleMover. However, the Walt Disney World website has officially updated their website to mark the PeopleMover as “closed for refurbishment”.
Inside the Magic went through the next few months to find out when Disney plans on reopening the ride, which won’t be until November 1. You can see this reflected in the screenshots below.
The first screenshot shows August 8, 2020 which the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover is now officially listed as temporarily unavailable and closed for refurbishment.
You can see this still reflected all the way through October 31, 2020.
Once we click on November 1, 2020, the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover is no longer listed, therefore, Disney plans on having this attraction reopened by then — (Fingers crossed!)
Fear not — If you are planning on visiting Magic Kingdom park in Disney World in the near future, there are plenty of other Tomorrowland attractions to check out including Space Mountain, Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, Carousel of Progress, the Tomorrowland Indy Speedway and more!
