New Test Track Ride at EPCOT

Mouse Chat Disney podcast – A Disney Radio Show by Disney Fans for Fans

Day two and three of the Fantasyland Media event we started at 7 AM and ended around 11 PM.

We started day two at Fantasyland for the Grand Opening and after the ribbon cutting and the Grand opening ceremonies, we headed on over to EPCOT that night for the grand opening of the new Test Track attraction.
Disney setup an amazing party, but let’s get into the ride and how it is different from before.

Epcot new test track ride opening

First the outside is much more modern and Tron like. That feel carries through the entire ride. If you are a TRON fan I think you will like what’s in-store.

test tracks new que line allows you to design your car

You can go though the stand by que and design your full vehicle.  You can pick EVERYTHING during this process.  OR you can go to the left and get into the FastPass or Single  Rider lines.  those lines you can grab a pre-done car.

Once you get into your newly painted car the track for the ride is exactly the same, BUT the theme is based 100% of design.  So clean lines, neon, large video projections, aerodynamic tests and performance tests.  It’s very dark which I think makes the new Test Track more exciting.  We rode at night so you go from the very dark inside attraction to the dark outside high speed run.

It’s loads of fun and I am sure will continue the tradition of the very long wait times at EPCOT.

Splitsville had their grand opening at Downtown Disney also.

We were in attendance for the grand opening and spent at least three hours at the party and bowling.  I was not really excited to see a bowling alley coming to Disney, but I have to say this was the most fun I have had in a long time, and I have not bowled since I can remember.  This is really a fantastic experience and great for the family.  The food was also top notch, not what you would expect from your Dad’s bowling alley.  Splitsville is a high end, “Luxury” bowling and dining experience.  We had a blast bowling.
