Walt Disney World today announced the date on which the updated version of Test Track will open at Epcot, doubling up on an already big day at the resort. Both the new Test Track and New Fantasyland will have a grand opening on December 6, 2012.
When Test Track reopens at Epcot, it will feature a new story centering around designing new cars rather than putting existing ones through their paces. In an interactive queue while waiting to board, guests will have an opportunity to make design choices that will effect how their car performs and looks during the ride. The classic high-speed Test Track ride will remain relatively unchanged in terms of its actual track, but all of its visuals, sounds, and music are being given a modern makeover.
New Fantasyland will have several preview phases in advance of its grand opening date, so it’s likely Test Track will soft open prior to December 6 as well, but as with most soft openings, nothing is guaranteed. But with one of Epcot’s most popular attractions and the Magic Kingdom’s biggest-ever expansion both grand opening on the same day, December 6 is sure to be a busy and exciting day at Walt Disney World.
