Could Disney’s Tomorrowland PeopleMover Finally Reopen This Weekend?

UPDATE: PeopleMover Refurbishment has been extended through January 30, 2021

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. As previously shared, refurbishment was noted through at least January 9, 2021. While we’re usually reporting an extension of the closure, it looks like the refurbishment could possibly end this weekend!


According to the Walt Disney World website’s refurbishment calendar, Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover is lifted from the refurbishment list as of January 10.

Here’s a screen shot of the calendar for January 9, where PeopleMover is still listed:


Then, instead of the usual continuation of the refurbishment we’re used to seeing, on January 10, PeopleMover is removed from the list as shown on the screen shot of the calendar below:

So, could Disney’s Tomorrowland PeopleMover finally reopen this weekend? We’ll keep our fingers crossed! Currently, the Walt Disney World website still shows no hours for the attraction beginning January 10 as shown in the screen shot below.

While Disney has yet to release the refurbishment details, it is rumored Disney is/was replacing the magnetic linear induction motors. We’re hoping we’ll be able to cruise along on the PeopleMover soon… but we shall see! We’ll keep you posted as we learn more.

About Mike/ Jamie

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.
