Support structure being removed from the TRON Lightcycle Run canopy

TRON Lightcycle Run construction - April 16 2021
Posted: Friday April 16, 2021 12:23pm ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Guests are now getting a better look at the TRON Ligthtcycle Run canopy as the large support structure is being removed from beneath the white steel.


The brown steel supports were holding the pieces of the canopy in position until the entire structure was completed and able to support itself.

Parts of the supports closest to the building are still in position waiting to be removed.

As this phase nears its conclusion, we are expecting to see a pause in construction, with the ride now expected to open later in 2022. Disney is yet to make any official announcement on a timeline for the coaster's opening.

Might be wrong here but pretty sure that’s a private lounge for the corporate sponsor of Tron at Shanghai. Which is Chevrolet, I know for sure they have a meeting space in the attraction.

maybe they are building a small gift shop? maybe it will be an elevator for people who cant use stairs? maybe another moana journey of water?

Yeah. That’s the corner that I always thought would be a good spot for a bunch of taller trees to block the show building from the most egregious in park views (from the pathway and circus area). A themed building works too. Still wouldn’t be great but would help by putting more visually interesting in the foreground

The building in Shanghai is the post show building. That’s not coming to the US and the pad is a lot smaller.

If you match it up with Shanghai's version there's definitely a structure (circled in red) that they have that WDW doesn't but WDW also doesn't have the space for that structure either. So maybe its just a smaller version of it being built here?

It looks like (depending on how big it ends up being) this building might end up blocking some of the views of the big box. Hopefully this building is more themed

I think that Speedramp is great idea for Tron: Lightcycle run entrance!

With a speedramp. Yes please.

I fully support getting rid of the arcade. We don't need this many gift shops. I'd like the Space Mountain exit to return to its original design.

Tear down the horrendous arcade/ store monstrosity

No idea -- that would make sense, though. Probably a good idea.

Isn’t Epic Universe getting its own (smaller) entertainment district? Not that we should continue along this tangent.
