4. Walt Disney World Railroad (Magic Kingdom)

Status: Confirmed/Rumored

Dates: December 3, 2018 - Late 2020

The Walt Disney World Railroad has been closed for almost a full year now, and while Disney has not released any updates on the refurbishment of this attraction, recent rumors seem to indicate that it will be another full year at least until this attraction might reopen, as construction on the TRON Roller Coaster in Tomorrowland continues to press on. 

In the meantime though, the train history educational exhibit that was formerly located at the Main Street U.S.A. station has moved to the Fantasyland station as of January 27 2020, where it is expected to stay for the foreseeable future.
