According to My Disney Experience, multiple attractions were recorded as temporarily closed at EPCOT in Walt Disney World for reasons unknown.

If you look at the screenshot below, taken at approximately 11:15 a.m. EST, The American Adventure, Awesome Planet, Living with the Land, The Seas with Nemo & Friends, Soarin’ Around the World, and Test Track were all temporarily closed via the My Disney Experience app.

However, when checking the My Disney Experience app again at 11:25 a.m. EST, we can confirm that Test Track has since reopened (with a current 120 minute wait time), but all of the other attractions are still down.

It has also been reported that other attractions reopened in just under an hour. However, the My Disney Experience app still showed the above attractions as down, even after noon EST.

At this time, Inside the Magic does not know the cause of the unexpected downtime, but we will keep you updated as we get information.

Note: Since we originally published this article, all EPCOT attractions reopened. 

More on EPCOT

If you are planning to visit EPCOT in the near future, you should know that Future World is undergoing a huge renovation right now, which as a result, will divide the section of the park into three new neighborhoods — World Celebration, World Discovery, and World Nature (with World Showcase of course located in the back of the park).

But despite the construction currently happening at the front of the park, Guests can still enjoy World Showcase. From year-round festivals to family-fun attractions, World Showcase is filled with entertainment offerings that you can enjoy despite the construction happening at the front of the park.
