Is the PeopleMover on Track to Open May 1st? We Have an Update!

We are just earlier mid-thirty day period, which usually means that it is time when once again to request the month to month issue as to regardless of whether or not Tomorrowland’s PeopleMover will satisfy its “1st of next month” target of reopening to guests. While I don’t have a crystal ball, I can share with you what I noticed in the Magic Kingdom this week, as properly as some data stemming from a dialogue that I experienced.

On a pay a visit to to Tomorrowland at the close of the 7 days, I have to acknowledge that I got a lot more than a little giddy at the sight of the PeopleMover zipping alongside on its elevated keep track of. Certainly, I know that the attraction’s been managing off and on in the course of its refurbishment, but I could not assist but come to feel a rush of pleasure at just seeing it basically transfer. It won’t just take substantially to get us PeopleMover enthusiasts psyched these times, does it?

Of training course, the attraction alone was however closed to attendees, but, as I talked about on The DIS’ Fb page together with a small movie of the PeopleMover in fact transferring, it was just so, so fantastic to hear that common clack clack clack overhead.

On the day that I was there, the ramp foremost up to the loading system was functioning. The bodily distancing markers on the facet of the ramp have been there given that the reopening of the park back again in July, but they just make all the things look so all set, really don’t they?

I had the opportunity to have a dialogue with a forged member who verified that issues are nevertheless on keep track of for the attraction to reopen on May well 1st. It was mentioned to me that the point that the PeopleMover experienced been operating all working day without the need of a downtime was a major deal and a very good sign, and that a continuous stream of cast associates are getting brought in to train on the attraction.

So, PeopleMover followers, what do you think? Could we be *this near* to a reopening of our beloved attraction? Let’s hope so. I won’t be able to hold out to hear Mr. Morrow paged after yet again.
