    Hi! My husband is a GM employee and we typically enjoy the GM lounge while we are in EPCOT. With Test Track now under construction, is the lounge still available to us while we are there or is there an alternate location for the time being? Thanks!

    Hello there Kara, and welcome back to planDisney!

    It's great to have you back here since your last question for us a decade ago, and your little Mouseketeer has likely grown up to enjoy so many more Disney experiences since then! One of those very exclusive experiences that only a small population of Walt Disney World Resort guests are even aware of is the GM Lounge perched atop Test Track, and as we were researching venues for our Disney Wedding this was a spot I was happy to have seen for myself; there's really nothing like hearing the SIM cars zooming past just below and that view of Spaceship Earth is simply unbeatable.

    • During my most recent visit to EPCOT this week, there were still folks accessing the door just outside of the Test Track SIMporium leading to the entrance hallway and elevator. At the time of writing however, Test Track has since officially closed temporarily (and as we passed by on that last evening there were definitely a few tears among the Cast Members as guests dashed past for their last chance).
    • The Guest Experience Team and Cast Members in the area near Test Track were unable to say whether the lounge will continue to remain open by the time of your visit in July. While this isn't the most helpful answer you might've been hoping for, they did suggest stopping by during your visit to see whether you're still able to gain access if the entrance hasn't been completely blocked off. 
    With the previously announced projects currently underway start to reach completion, you'll find the best source of official updates on the Disney Parks Blog where we also have our own dedicated home for our planDisney knowledge. Hope you do get the chance to enjoy some welcome air-conditioning and drinks up in the lounge to help beat the Floridian heat this summer if you can Kara! Don't wait another decade to ask our team anything else ahead of your next trip (and hopefully it'll be something that the Cast Members will be able to share more insight on!).

    Here's hoping the days leading up to your Disney adventures zoom right by until you're here!
