Beginning this fall, Epcot guests will be able to enjoy a re-imagined version of the popular Future World attraction, Test Track presented by Chevrolet.

This new version of the attraction will transform the current testing workshop into the sleek “Chevrolet Design Center at Epcot,” where guests can become immersed in the fun – and fast – world of automotive design. Here, guests will become automotive designers and create their own custom vehicles. Next, they’ll buckle into a six-person SimCar ride vehicle and test out their design on the challenging track of the Test Track course.

Afterward, guests can take a fascinating look into the future of transportation by viewing a collection of the latest Chevrolet vehicles in an all-new showroom.

This fun new experience is the result of a renewed, multi-year business relationship between Disney and General Motors, companies that have worked together for more than 30 years.

Test Track has recently closed for it's renovation and isn't scheduled to re-open until sometime this fall. Meanwhile the following changes in the park have been confirmed while Test Track remains closed:

1) An A Cappellua musical group is set to perform near the attraction.

2) Both The Land pavilion and the Epcot Character Spot will have extended hours while Test Track remains closed to help absorb the crowds. Both will remain open until 10 p.m.

Disney just released some new rendering showing of what the attraction experience will be like when the renovation is completed.

I find this interesting that there doing this and I think it's great that they are! I'm just wondering what it will be like cause the other original was very good so im sure this new version will be even better can't wait till it opens! And Brandon its scheduled to open November 30th 2012 but if it turns out like when it first opened who knows when its going to open! I mean it opened almost two years after the first set date was for it to open but who knows, cant wait for the ride though! Looks very high techie I'm so excited!

Brandon, look in the Fantasyland Expansion thread in the Magic Kingdom section where I posted information that Disney released regarding opening times for the new attractions and experiences.

This made me laugh so hard when I first read it! lol!

"The Test Track.

A digital frontier.

I tried to picture clusters of information as they moved through the computer.

What did they look like? Chevorlets? Yeah.Were the circuits like freeways? Were Tests 2,5 and 7 preformed?

I kept dreaming of a world I thought I'd never see. And then, one day GM came to Disney with a proposal....."
