The official Disney Parks TikTok account has shared a new video of the Walt Disney World railroad testing at Magic Kingdom.

@disneyparks Choo Choo! Testing is just beginning for the Walt #DisneyWorld Railroad crew ?? #Disney #DisneyParks #DisneyCastLife #Railroad #Train #TrainTok ? original sound - Disney Parks

The railroad was closed in December 2018 as construction began on the TRON rollercoaster.

During the closure, the trains were accessible via a static exhibit on Main Street U.S.A. and then later at the Fantasyland station.

With the parks closing due to the pandemic in early 2020, the static exhibits closed and did not reopen with the rest of the park in summer 2022.

Construction on the exterior parts of TRON is expected to be completed soon, allowing the railroad tracks to be installed through the new tunnel at the TRON attraction, and the railroad returned to service.

All the way through the current Tron construction....

Steam exhaust issues aside... it'd be neat with all the construction changes over there that they could've run the train THROUGH the Tron ride in some way (similar to how the people mover goes through Space Mountain) - maybe even through Space Mountain too! That's make for some interesting Spiels over the intercom. "We're now passing into the electronic frontier - watch out for bits, they like to hitch hike!"

Even if they don't complete the whole exterior first, I should think they'd want to finish everything west of the tracks. They're actually pretty close to achieving that, though. Just some more pathways to pour, a bit more trim to install on the front portion of the canopy, and some retaining walls to eventually fill with trees and other plantings.

🎶you are the mag-icccccc🎶 why does disney need roaming entertainment when they have cast members? why does disney need a train when they have the guests to make their own magic - for the right price, of course?
