Tron, the hugely popular coaster from Shanghai Disneyland, is coming to the Magic Kingdom.

To be built on a brand new area beside Space Mountain, Tron will open in time for Walt Disney World's 50th in 2021.

The TRON Lightcycle Power Run attraction at Shanghai Disneyland is a coaster-style attraction where riders board a train of two-wheeled Lightcycles. It offers access into the energy, lights and excitement of TRON’s high-tech universe.

The nearby Speedway is set to remain, although various versions of the final plan show the Speedway being radically updated from its current Indy car type look.

Quick 14hr flight from Chicago then a 15 min ride on the Maglev from Pudong then another 25 min ride on the metro and poof, you're in Shanghai Disneyland!

But if you go that way you bypass Stitch and M.I.L.F a couple of tomorrowland classics.....

I'm very much looking forward to TRON too, especially because Shanghai is too far to walk for me and a lot of other Disney fans!

I’m happy to be getting a legitimate addition to MK. For any faults (and I honestly think we are nit-picking), it will be a fun ride that replaced swamp. My anger in this park is firmly fixed on Splash Mountain. I’m looking forward to TRON.

And then continue walking east to Shanghai where the attraction actually fits in with the aesthetic of the land around it

The view as you approach should be pretty cool if you go this way:

Also, not to be overlooked is CoP is a physically turning show building.
