Disney themselves have said TT will be closed in April (ie. this month) until the 'fall'. Orlando Sentinel has talked with WDW and a "spokeswoman for the resort said the attraction will shut down April 16 for an extended renovation. The redesigned ride is to reopen in the fall with a new theme focused on GM's Chevrolet brand and a new automotive-design center".

this is taken from the touring plans blog
"The closure is really 田onfirmed now because operational schedules covering April 16 were posted for the cast working at Epcot today. They were informed that the Test Track attraction building would be off-limits as it would be under Imagineering痴 jurisdiction for the redevelopment. Additionally, Guest Relations staff are scheduled to be stationed out front to answer questions that park guests may have about the closure."

Epcot's Test Track to put it in park on April 15


Sunday, April 15, is the final day to ride Test Track at Epcot before it shifts into renovation mode.

The high-speed attraction, which has been in the Disney World theme park's Future World area since 1999, will be closed for several months for a makeover. Walt Disney Imagineering and sponsor GM are planning a "re-imagined design-centric Test Track experience," Disney says.

Details about the changes are sparse so far. In the initial announcement in January, Disney said the "Chevrolet Design Center" will enable guests to design custom concept cars and board a "SimCar" to put their designs through the paces of the Test Track track.

The ride itself will remain a ride, not a virtual experience or simulator, according to the Disney Parks Blog. Test Track's story has involved putting cars through weather and braking trials, plus a rapid dash through curves outside the building.

When the attraction reopens at an unspecified date this fall it will have a new emphasis on the Chevrolet brand, rather than an overall GM theme, and it will be known as Test Track Presented by Chevrolet.

Hi When I put our dates (May 10th) into the park hours on the Disney World site it shows

Test Track - Closed For Refurbishment [ Friday, June 01 - Tuesday, July 31 ]

Hope this is right because we like this ride and another of our favourites BTMR is closed when we are there in May.

Sorry to say that this is not right,Test Track goes down on April 16th for a as yet undisclosed amount of time,but it looks very much like it will reopen late september.Whoever is putting this info on the WDW site must have stumbled across a hidden supply of Kungaloosh and necked the lot.

Says Test Track is down till November 30th 2011 (would reopen December 1st)

Not necessarily correct, but that's what it says (and technically, isn't it "fall" till December 21st?)
