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.

Anyone else laughing that M&MRR at Disneyland will open before Tron?

I like how subtle it is, it took me a minute to find it.

Looks like Train will return about 3 months before Tron opens. So could be Jan or Feb.

TRON is now planned for 2030 to combat Sea World’s 2nd theme park. A Shamu Swatter.

Maybe they keep it to 2025 as an Epic swatter

Guardians is fine at Epcot - the pre-show is cute and fun. Tron is fine at MK. I like the aesthetic and if the rest of Tomorrowland took after that eventually, it would be a fun land full of neon colors and a clean sleek look. I don't think the view of Tron would really have fit well at Epcot either.

I think TRON was really only ever more attractive to folks because the canopy meshes somewhat decently with EPCOT, plus TRON as an IP leans at least slightly more in the science fiction direction than the clear science fantasy realm of Guardians, even if both are ridiculous. However, I would argue that they at least had the opportunity to do a better job with Guardians in EPCOT since they were starting from scratch. TRON was a clone designed with none of the EPCOT ethos in mind, so it never would have felt like a complete pavilion. There are many things I would have done differently with Guardians, but at least there’s some pretense of a complete pavilion there. Even if you don’t like Cosmic Rewind, there’s room to fantasize about potential overlays, whereas TRON would have forever been a 1.5 minute coaster and nothing else.
