The TRON coaster at the Magic Kingdom is progressing at a rapid rate as crews continue to install pieces of track and support columns.

When complete, the TRON coaster in Tomorrowland will have more than 3000ft of track, similar in length to Rock 'n' Roller Coaster at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

TRON will open in time for Walt Disney World's 50th in 2021.

True, but if in this fiscal year, it will cause the quarterlies to show a net loss for the whole company. That hurts the stocks. Disney stocks are soaring because of Disney+ and the ability to show quarter by quarter, there was no operational net loss. It's about investor confidence. October is the beginning of the new fiscal year. Expect the money hose to open up then.

It's not making them the money yet either... Guests know its coming, but when? Kind of is like Star Wars Land at DHS, a lot of people waited til it was open to come back... even with Toy Story Land as a draw ahead of it, they waited. Big 50th party, is the Rat and a cupcake and castle swag a draw for people to come now or wait til Tron comes?

Yes, we've discussed it before but that's not an issue. We don't know, there's been no word. I would be shocked if they did nothing so I expect some replanted trees. We'll just have to wait n see.

Apologies as I'm sure this has been discussed hundred of times, but are there any plans to hide this from Fantasyland specifically Storybook Circus? The box is hideeeouss

My focus lately has been on discovering all the details about the churro-scented urinal pucks a team of 37 Imagineers has been working on since 2013.

Rumors and the facts point to pent-up demand, higher vaccination rates than anticipated and lower case numbers, may be causing a boost to capacity. Disney has already started to call back more cast, and has supposedly added more Park Pass availability for the summer. Rumblings also show that nighttime entertainment may be returning sooner than later. I can almost guarantee you, the old saying “if you build it, they will come” still stands. Will we be seeing Christmas Eve number capacity? No. Would opening up capacity and choosing not to drag their feet on two attractions that should’ve been open this year (Tron & GOTG) as well as Ratatouille help bring in more guests? Yes. I’m no insider and am just going off what I’ve read and past experience with the parks and what not. It is clear that Disney is terrified of a covid case being traced back to the parks and resorts, the NBA bubble showed that they have the logistical means and know how to prevent it. It was also probably a great PR boost for them, guests see that the NBA players spent weeks at WDW and almost no cases. I think there was one or two? I’m not disputing your claim and am just kind of adding my two cents. I responded to you because it was the most relevant
