    Red Face Peoplemover track

    Are they ever going to tear down the peoplemover track? Of course I would prefer them to fix the old peoplemover, but from that I've heard on here that isn't going to happen. If this is the case, I would rather them tear down the track because it's just a big tease right now. It looks cool and just taunts you about the right that was once there that is never coming back. Let's just tear it down so we can move on. Every time I see the unused track it just upsets me, I would rather it just be gone if they won't bring back the ride. Your thoughts?

    Yeah, I totally agree. I don't thing they're planning to tear them down any time soon, though. Disney has a bad habit of abandoning their unused/closed properties and leaving them to rot (I.E. River Country).

    Isn't there a rumor of a major tomorrowland refurb floating about somewhere?

    I do agree that the PeopleMover track should be torn down since it is completely unused. However, in tearing down the track, that means that ST, SM, Innovations, Autopia, FNSV, Monorail, and BLAB will all have to be closed down while the track is being removed (since the track runs over, through or near all of these attractions).

    Not to mention the high cost associated with tearing it down.

    Hopefully when they re-do the entirety of Tomorrowland, that they tear down the track at that point.

    Yep. There is such a rumor. What I heard is that the buildings are gonna be given a makeover to give Tomorrowland a new overlying theme. If this rumor turns out to be true, then it would be the perfect oppertunity to bring the PeopleMover back in some form.

    Actually, they wouldn't have to do anything with the indoor portions of the ride since they are not visible.

    The outdoor portions could be done overnight one section at a time. Any ride closures would be minimal.

    I've heard a portion was removed during the Star Tours/Star Trader refurb a few years ago.

    This is pretty much my exact sentiment.

    I hear that significant portions of the indoor track are used for storage, but haven't seen that confirmed anywhere.

    I heard OSHA won't let them bring back either ride without widening the track

    I agree! I think Disney needs to take a BOLD move here. The 1967 version of Tomorrowland was inspiring, partly due to all of the kinetic energy that flowed through the land. The PeopleMover was the circulatory system; now the circulation has been cut-off and the vitality has been drained.

    Re: Peoplemover track

    How about a LIM train that goes around Tomorrowland? A LIM train with banked turns so if it speeds up, it won't feel like a rough ride.

    Linear induction motor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I think it would combine the best of a travel/thrill attraction.

    Of course, I'm waiting for Disney to announce their "big secret" about Tomorrowland.

    It's actually the lack of emergency egresses that would need to be addressed.
