    One has to wonder what they are doing to Oak Trail that it will be closed for 4 months.

    We were disappointed to find a number of key attractions closed when we were at WDW in April, including Thunder Mountain and Test Track. We didn't know about this thread at the time.

    Is this thread being continually updated? We are returning in October and would like to have a better sense as to what's available, so we can better manage the kid's expectations this time.

    Thank you.

    Cheers,

    Test Track will still be closed (through Nov 30th)
    Country Bear Jamboree closed through Oct 16th
    Typhoon Lagoon will be closed on Oct 28th for seasonal refurbishment

    As of right now I believe that is it. Of course this is always subject to change.
