We found out a couple months back the the Tomorrowland Speedway attraction will be closing for refurbishment on January 2, 2019 to make way for the new TRON Roller Coaster construction. That day is now here and the Tomorrowland Speedway is officially closed.
However we also know that the Tomorrowland Speedway will be reopening on May 18, 2019, which is roughly 4 months to get it all back up and running.
The reason for such a lengthy refurbishment is that the TRON coaster building will be hanging over part of the Tomorrowland Speedway track so time is needed to do the needed construction work.
Six months is a lot of time but necessary for a project this big. The Walt Disney World Railroad is also closed at this time and that one is going to be a bit longer as Disney hasn’t yet said when they expect it back up and running. To be safe don’t expect to see it open again until late 2019, if then.
Stay tuned for more information about both the TRON roller coaster and Tomorrowland Speedway.
I want to know what you think about the Tomorrowland Speedway closing for refurbishment…
- Is this a big change to your plans?
- Should they keep the Speedway or replace it?
