This week at Walt Disney World, Test Track gets an early 2020 refurbishment, My Disney Experience gets a big change, Disney's Animal Kingdom says goodbye to a long-running entertainment option and more!

Outside Walt Disney World, Universal "accidentally" announces a new attraction and SeaWorld Orlando is offering free food for annual passholders 

1. Disney Skyliner still not open to guests


A week after the Disney Skyliner suffered an unspecified malfunction, this transportation system is still in testing while the issue that caused this malfunction is investigated.   Disney has not provided any updates on when the Skyliner might reopen, but hopefully we'll know more soon! 

2. Test Track closing early next year for brief refurbishment

Right before the massive closure and overhaul of Spaceship Earth, Test Track will be closing for a brief refurbishment from January 13th, 2020 to February 26, 2020. This closure will ensure that this attraction is in tip-top condition while Spaceship Earth is closed and will have minimal downtime during this period. 

3. My Disney Experience becomes preffered method of booking restaurant reservations

Though dining reservations have been a part of My Disney Experience since the very beginning, guests have always had the option to either book digitally or via phone. However, it looks like Disney will be discontinuing dining reservations via the Disney Reservation Center, which means that digital is now the only option for guests wanting to snag reservations at Walt Disney World's most popular eateries.
