Of them all, one beloved attraction that has been missing in action for over 2000 days—almost five years—is the Walt Disney World Railroad. The attraction was forced to close due to Disney’s upcoming TRON Lightcycle Run roller coaster construction in Tomorrowland at Magic Kingdom.

While Disney still hasn’t announced any official news regarding an open date for this attraction, the train was spotted chugging away yet again. This comes after a few fans spotted the train being tested on more than one count, and an official Disney Parks TikTok that shared Disney has been making progress on the Railroad.

Twitter user Doctor Disney, @Doctor_Disney, also took to the platform to share another recent video:

While fans were incredibly excited to see this coming about—many commented about how the reopening surely couldn’t be too far out—some fans responded humorously, recalling the fan reactions from when Disney officially announced the Railroad was being tested.

The attraction has a Fantasyland station, a Frontierland station, and one near the entrance to Main Street, U.S.A. as well. Disney fans have all been eagerly awaiting the return of this ride, so all of these are incredibly promising signs of an upcoming return to the Disney Park

We at Disney Fanatic will continue to report on all the latest news from Disney as it comes to light.
