Steel supports for the Tron coaster track are now visible throughout Tomorrowland in the Magic Kingdom as work on installing the ride system gets underway.

Based on the The TRON Lightcycle Power Run attraction at Shanghai Disneyland, riders board a train of two-wheeled Lightcycles.

The nearby Tomorrowland Speedway will reopen very soon following a few modifications of its track layout to accommodate Tron.

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

That'll be the fate of the construction they've done on the Magnolia golf course beside Floridian Way. They've built this nice new dune right beside a new water hazard that has no tarping or sod. Its going to get flat rather fast.

Looks like that expansive (and expensive!) canopy will get its first real test with this week's expected wind and rain event. I hope they don't have to regrade all that exposed dirt between the concrete path sections already poured!

You say that until you realize it removes the only fun part of the ride: crashing into your brother’s car right in front of you.
