Walt Disney World Railroad Construction Stalls, Shifts to Landscaping at Magic Kingdom

We want you to get the most out of your ‘luxury villa’ stay in Solterra, Davenport (near Championsgate and just south of the Disney World Resort area). To help out, we have sourced the following blog post to keep you up to date with news from Walt Disney World Resort. Thanks to the guys over at Blog Mickey for the original post...

During our visit to Magic Kingdom this morning, we took a lap on the Tomorrowland PeopleMover to check in on construction progress at the TRON Lightcycle Run site. What we found was an increase in testing cadence for the ride vehicles, but an apparent stall in progress on the Walt Disney World Railroad.

We’ll first check in with the tunnel, which hasn’t seen any significant progress in weeks. For comparison, here’s a look at the tunnel from earlier today…

Work on the Fantasyland side of the tunnel hasn’t progressed from what we can see either.

Here’s a closer look at the current state of the work from earlier today.

Here’s a wider look at where the Walt Disney World Railroad tracks will run to connect the Fantasyland station on the north side of TRON to the existing railroad track in Tomorrowland. It looks like curbing has been recently installed, perhaps for a walkway adjacent to the tracks.

Where we are seeing some progress is in the landscaping department over in Tomorrowland proper. Here’s a look at newly planted trees and bushes.

Disney has not announced a reopening date for the Walt Disney World Railroad, and has not announced an opening date for TRON Lightcycle Run. All eyes will be on Parks chief Josh D’Amaro at the D23 Expo in less than two weeks.
