TRON: Lightcycle Run

Disney Cast Members and construction crews have been working on this attraction for yearsand we’re still seeing the fruits of that labor come together week by week. We recently saw a large truck move into the construction zoneand more areas are being cleared for what looks like more concrete potentially.

TRON Construction

Disney hasn’t shared much in terms of opening timeline, but we can expect a thrilling, two-wheeled coaster experience at some point in the future!

Walt Disney World Railroad

In order for construction to begin on TRON in Magic Kingdom, the Walt Disney World Railroad had to shut down. While the ride was closed, Disney took the opportunity to do some refurbishment on the railroad.

Recently, we’ve spotted new railroad tracks being laid down all throughout the park.

They’re still laying down the tracks.

Much like the case with TRON, the Walt Disney World Railroad has no scheduled opening date. We’re keeping an eye out for updates, so stay tuned.

Center Street

There’s one less spot to take a seat on Main Street, USA over by Crystal Arts. The back area of ​​Center Street has been walled off.

This area remains closed to guests.
