If you have visited EPCOT at Walt Disney World, you most likely have ridden Test TrackThis is a thrill ride but not too intense, so Guests with different excitement levels can enjoy it.


You hopefully could ride early if you have had been to this theme park the past three days. Although EPCOT is scheduled to close at 9 pm Test Track has been closing two and a half hours earlier at 6:30pm. It is also scheduled to close early today, February 3.

According to the My Disney Experience App Test Track, it is currently closed, but hopefully, it will reopen at some point during the day.

The early closure is thought to be routine maintenance, but Disney has not given any official information. Although it is frustrating, routine maintenance is necessary to keep everything safe and looking its best.
