UPDATE 6:00pm - Test Track has reopened this evening.


Test Track at EPCOT is facing a period of extended downtime today.

The popular World Discovery ride did not open with the park this morning, and has remained closed.

Ride vehicles are not cycling, and Cast Members we spoke to are not hopeful of the ride reopening today.

EPCOT VP Kartika S Rodriguez posted the following on My Disney Experience, "On behalf of the entire team at Epcot, I'd like to apologize that Test Track is currently unavailable. Our Cast
Members are working diligently to get the attraction up and running again, and we are sorry you are not able to experience this attraction at this time. I hope you will enjoy some of our other attractions during your experience in the park today."

When the rains and upcoming hurricane comes mid week, TT won't be running due to weather .

Test track is down? In the words of Iago, I think I'm going to have heart attack and die from that surprise.

Not Test Track, but there are many attractions that are 40 to 50 years old. Trust me when I say that everything that reaches that age starts to break down frequently.

It seems like everything is breaking down more. I think it's because Disney is cheap and they don't want to maintenance things right anymore.

Because it's not going to ever happen?! :)

I’ve heard of a land beyond Thunder Mountain but we don’t talk about it. No no no

"Fast Track" is always open. The problem is that it is almost impossible to find. Many people talk about it, so it must be there someplace. Maybe it's behind Thunder Mountain.

Definitely. Though to that point, I think it's better to have preventative maintenance on a schedule (shared on a refurb calendar) over randomly unexpected downtime.

Down a second day that is to bad.

I hope it stays open for guests.
