An Epcot Attraction is Closing Earlier than Expected

Not all attractions stay open during normal operating hours. An Epcot attraction is closing earlier than expected. See how this may affect your visit below.

Get that seatbelt on because you’re about to test the limits! Test Track is one of the most popular attractions at Epcot due to its thrill factor and interactive experiences. First, you will design your own car accounting for things like speed and terrain. Then you will be able to test your design on a track.

This ride is very popular, so be sure to use Character Locator for tips on how to experience it without too much of a wait!

Closing Early

The Disney website states that Test Track will be closing early this evening, October 28. Despite the park being open until 10:00, Test Track will close to Guests at 7:00.

Additionally, some Guests are receiving notifications in My Disney Experience regarding these adjusted hours.

We are unsure of the reasoning for this early closure, but tomorrow the attraction goes back to closing at 10:00 pm. Could it have something to do with severe weather threatening the area? You can read Joe’s report and analysis HERE.

Test Track is one ride that is very sensitive to unfavorable weather conditions. Due to the fact that a portion of the track is outside, it can become very slippery even when a little rain shower pops into the area.

How will this affect your visit?

If you are visiting Epcot today you will want to make note of this so you are not surprised when you walk up and notice it is closed. I would suggest getting in line right before closing if you plan to use standby.

If you purchased Genie+ today I would try to get in when it’s not raining. That’s easier said than done considering you can’t really “choose” your return time.
