We’re getting closer and closer to the opening of the TRON roller coaster in Magic Kingdom!
Back in 2017, Disney announced plans to open TRON Lightcycle Run in Magic Kingdom’s Tomorrowland, and its opening was subsequently delayed from 2021 to Spring 2023. Our favorite way to keep an eye on construction progress is to take a ride on the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover and on a recent ride, we noticed a BIG development!
Taking a ride on the PeopleMover is the best way to see TRON Lightcycle Run’s current look, and we’ve observed Cast Members working on the ride, vehicles moving, groundwork being laid, and lots more.
We’re here to keep you up to date on everything happening with the construction, so here’s what we know so far! The canopy for the ride looks like it’s mostly completed, and we’ve seen concrete walls…
…and progress with the groundwork.
And Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. closed for construction nearby, and the current state of the exterior of the store is mostly just concrete.
Up until recently, the Walt Disney World Railroad tunnel was just that — a tunnel. The Railroad has been closed due to TRON construction since 2018, and a reopening date has not yet been announced.
But on a recent trip to Magic Kingdom, we noticed that railroad tracks were laid down!
These NEW tracks lead into the tunnel, where the Walt Disney World Railroad will eventually travel through.
