Two Beloved Tomorrowland Attractions Are Mysteriously Unavailable

Walt Disney World Resort’s Magic Kingdom is undoubtedly its most popular Disney Park. Magic Kingdom is divided into six different sections: Main Street, U.S.A., Adventureland, Frontierland, Liberty Square, Fantasyland, and lastly, Tomorrowland.

Each themed area transports visiting Guests into a different world, and Tomorrowland takes Guests into the future. However, in 2023, the site takes on a retrofuturism aesthetic (depictions of the future that come from the past) instead of a genuinely futuristic one, but we’re not complaining! The dated futurism is super fun and reminds us of simpler times.

Astro Orbiter is a Dumbo the Flying Elephant-styled ride in which Guests take an elevator to reach the lift-off station. Each ride vehicle fits two Guests, and the attraction entails flying as high or as low as you’d like amongst the planets and the stars.

Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover is a calm and slow-moving tour of this retrofuturistic section of Magic Kingdom. The tram takes Guests behind the scenes of other attractions, gives them a bird’s eye view of Tomorrowland, and lasts about 10 minutes.

As of right now, we have no idea why these attractions are unavailable. It could be technical difficulties, considering that Disney hasn’t indicated any refurbishment.

It should be noted that these closures aren’t reflected on Walt Disney World Resort’s official website but on the mobile app. Hopefully, this means that the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PoepleMover and the Astro Orbiter will be up and running again soon.
