High Gas Prices Cause Tomorrowland Speedway Closure

Tomorrowland Speedway closing due to high gas prices

High gas prices continue to take a toll on Americans. We have seen the highest gas prices in America in the past few months. This isn’t just impacting consumers, it’s impacting business as well. Disney has just closed one of their top attractions due to the high gas prices.

The extremely popular Tomorrowland Speedway will be closing down indefinitely due to the continued high gas prices. Despite prices for gas being on the decline, Disney has decided they cannot keep running these cars at the current price of gas.

There is no set date for when the Tomorrowland Speedway will be reopening. We believe the attraction will remain closed until Disney feels confident they can run the attraction, while not taking a huge profit hit. The good news about the attraction is there are no mechanical or track issues, the temporary closure is driven (pun intended) by the high gas prices.

This begs the question if Disney is going to shift to electric cars for this attraction. We can see Disney taking the electric route in the near future and adding solar panels to charge the cars. This would fit well with the futuristic theme of Tomorrowland and might be a money saver down the road (also pun intended). The main downside is we would miss out on the iconic sounds and smells from the cars. There are also rumors that Disney will charge guests extra to ride this attraction to offset the high fuel costs. It is not clear if that would be temporary or permanent.

We will monitor this story closely and keep you updated when Disney plans to reopen the Tomorrowland Speedway.
