One of our favorite Magic Kingdom attractions, Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover, has been “Temporarily Unavailable” for some time now as noted “Closed for Refurbishment” on the Walt Disney World website. It looks like we may be coming to the end of the long awaited refurbishment!
While we’re extremely excited about PeopleMover reopening, we are also trying our best not to keep our hopes up! On the refurbishment calendar, PeopleMover is listed as closed for refurbishment through Saturday, April 3. On Easter Sunday, April 4, PeopleMover is removed from the calendar which is great news… right?! The PeopleMover refurbishment has been pushed back multiple times, but typically by now Disney updates the refurbishment calendar to show the extended refurbishment. So yes, it’s good news they have not done so as of right now.
On the flip side, the PeopleMover attraction page does NOT have hours listed for Sunday, April 4. So, while we’re extremely hopeful the refurbishment calendar is showing good signs – we’re nervous Disney hasn’t listed operating hours just yet.

While Disney has not released the refurbishment details, it is rumored Disney is replacing the magnetic linear induction motors. We’re hoping we’ll be able to cruise along on the PeopleMover this Easter Sunday!
