- Parking lot trams to resume operation at Disney World
- Trams will return to Magic Kingdom this month
- The other theme parks will see trams return next year
The trams will return to Magic Kingdom starting this month. For the other parks—Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom—service will resume “throughout” next year.
Disney didn’t share specific dates with Thursday’s announcement.
Ever since Disney World closed its parks last year in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the trams have been idle. When the parks reopened, tram service remained unavailable.
The absence of tram service meant guests were forced to walk from the parking lots to the parks. The distance could be long or short, depending on the park or the time of day.
Some Disney World guests even took to social media, asking when the trams would return. The question was especially common during the hot summer months.
The return of trams comes as Disney brings back other parts of the park experience that were paused amid the pandemic.
In recent months, Disney has brought back fireworks and reopened more restaurants and hotels.
