Today we spent the day at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. The day turned out to again be quiet and relaxing, allowing for rerides on some of our favorite rides. The highlight, however, was observing the active construction site of TRON: Lightcycle Run. Join us for a construction update of this highly anticipated new coaster:

The parking lot and the Ticketing and Transportation Center was quite busy this morning, making us fear for bigger crowds once inside. However we never waited more than 20 minutes for any attraction, including the coasters. We usually don’t ride Big Thunder Mountain Railroad at Magic Kingdom more than once a visit. Today’s lack of crowds however, meant we rode it a few times.
Avid readers know we’re absolute TRON nerds, particularly the Vekoma coaster at Shanghai Disneyland. It should be no surprise that we moved to be close to the USA TRON and also wear TRON gear to the park every visit.
Track work was already completed on TRON: Lightcycle Run prior to Covid-19 park shut downs. However, the majority of the walls didn’t go up ’til after the construction resumed. Besides the small slither left to be completed, the majority of the ride’s show building is now enclosed.
That includes the wall that still has the scaffolding up, as that side of the building has just recently been completed. The exciting exterior construction continues with the ride’s awe-inspiring canopy.
The canopy will completely disguise the show building and will stand tall over Tomorrowland. We’re excited to see what changes this installation will have compared to Shanghai’s infrastructure. If you want a bit of an idea of what it will look like, click here for more pictures.
