The Walt Disney World Railroad has been closed since the end of 2018, as a result of the construction of the highly anticipated TRON attraction.

Many Guests have commented that the 50th Anniversary celebration at the Magic Kingdom just isn’t the same without the Walt Disney Railroad. Walt Disney loved trains, and it is only fitting that each Disney Park has a train that Guests can enjoy.

Testing for the railroad has been SEEN and HEARD several times. Construction updates of both the railroad track and water tower have neared completion.  We were also hopeful for the Railroad’s return when Disney shared that they are welcoming back Cast Members for TRAINing! 

We still get excited every time we hear the Walt Disney World Railroad out for testing. Recently, the Walt Disney World Railroad was seen outside of the Magic Kingdom. That’s right, outside of the park. Could you imagine being stuck at the railroad crossing and seeing the Walt Disney World train coming down the tracks?

Many Walt Disney World guests have shared they anticipate the reopening of the Walt Disney World Railroad more than the opening of the brand new coaster Tron Lightcycle Power Run.

We can’t wait to climb aboard the Walt Disney World Railroad once again. Although this is a positive sign seeing the train out for testing, Disney has still not released a reopening date for it.
