Disney’s PeopleMover Refurbishment Extended Once Again

Sorry Disney fans… it looks like those of us that were hoping to catch a ride on Magic Kingdom’s Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover this Easter will have to keep waiting. PeopleMover has been “Temporarily Unavailable” for some time now as noted “Closed for Refurbishment” on the Walt Disney World website. And once again, the refurbishment has been extended.


As of yesterday (March 30), Disney’s refurbishment calendar showed PeopleMover listed as closed for refurbishment through Saturday, April 3. On Easter Sunday, April 4, PeopleMover was removed from the calendar which we were hoping meant great news. On the flip side, the PeopleMover attraction page did not have hours listed for Sunday, April 4. So, while we were extremely hopeful the refurbishment calendar was showing good signs – today we awoke to find the refurbishment has once again been extended.

Currently, the refurbishment calendar has PeopleMover closed through April 30th. The attraction is then removed from the calendar on May 1st. While Disney has not released the refurbishment details, it is rumored Disney is replacing the magnetic linear induction motors. Hang in there Disney fans… we’re hoping we’ll be able to cruise along on the PeopleMover soon enough!

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
