New: PeopleMover Refurbishment Further Extended

For a stress-free Disney or Universal Studios vacation, let the FREE expert planners at Royal Carriage Vacations take care of every detail including dining reservations, applying discounts, and onboard cruise credit.

The PeopleMover in Tomorrowland at Magic Kingdom has been undergoing a lengthy refurbishment. That refurbishment has been extended. Read on for details.

Tomorrowland reopened in July without the fan favorite PeopleMover. Unfortunately, the refurbishment schedule keeps getting longer.

PeopleMover Attraction

The PeopleMover takes guests on a relaxing tour of Tomorrowland in Disney’s Magic Kingdom. The ride lasts for approximately 10 minutes and provides some amazing views of the castle as well as the construction on the Tron coaster!

While twisting and turning through buildings and around the land, the pre-recorded tour guide gives information about the various attractions in Tomorrowland.

Breaking: People Mover Trains Collide at Magic Kingdom

The PeopleMover was one of the few Magic Kingdom attractions that did not reopen with the park in July.

We covered several incidents involving this attraction earlier this year. There was a collision between two trains and a small fire.

PeopleMover Refurbishment

Initially, the refurbishment was scheduled to last until later in the fall. The ride went from “unavailable” to “closed for refurbishment” a few weeks after Disney World reopened.

Then, the refurbishment was later revised to last through November. Turns out, fans of the PeopleMover will have to wait a little longer to ride again.

Today, we learned that the PeopleMover will remain closed through the Christmas holiday.

Other Disney World Refurbishments

Several other Disney World rides are scheduled to close for refurbishment.

Additionally, the Liberty Square Riverboat is currently undergoing refurbishment at Magic Kingdom.

On November 2, 2020 Frozen Ever After in Epcot will also undergo a brief refurbishment. Frozen is scheduled to reopen on November 6, 2020.

Three pavilions in Epcot World Showcase will also receive an update in the coming months.

Disney’s Polynesian resort will also receive a facelift and starting on November 2, 2020 the monorail station will be closed.

That’s just some of the construction work Disney has committed to doing in the near future. We will be sure to keep you posted on any and all closures around Walt Disney World.

Probably due to the recent round of layoffs.

Another attraction not working and Disney still charges full price.

Bunch of sheep consumers and Disney knows it.
