Tron is now programming....
The Disney Parks Blog
have given us the first update on the Tron Lightcycle coaster which is now under construction at Magic Kingdom. The update details some changes and closures to existing attractions to allow for construction to take place.
First, the Walt Disney World Railroad will temporarily take up residence at the Main Street Station starting in December 2018, pausing its grand-circle tours of Magic Kingdom Park. During this time, guests will be able to get an up-close look at the railroad and take advantage of one-of-a-kind photo opportunities.
The Tomorrowland Speedway will close for a portion of 2019, as the attraction’s track is adjusted. It will reopen as the same attraction our guests know and love in the summer of 2019.
If construction goes to schedule, the attraction is set to debut for Walt Disney World's 50th anniversary in 2021.
The update from Disney Parks Blog follows the appearance of a Tron themed billboard which is visible from the Storybook Circus area of the park:
The attraction in Magic Kingdom will be the second Tron Lightcycle coaster at a Disney park, with the first opening at Shaghai Disney as one of its original attractions.
I think I may just need to plan a Florida trip for Walt Disney World's 50th anniversary!!
