Pricing now available for TRON Lightcycle Run Lightning Lane access at Walt Disney World

Mar 20, 2023 in "Tron Lightcycle Run rollercoaster"

Posted: Monday March 20, 2023 7:03am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Access to the Lightning Lane at TRON Lightcycle Run will cost $20, plus tax, per person on the first day of its soft opening.

The $20 Lightning Lane fee at TRON is less than Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, which is priced at $25 today, but more than Guardians of the galaxy Cosmic Rewind, which is priced at $17 today.

Guests of a Disney Resort Hotel and other select hotels can purchase a Lightning Lane selection at 7:00am on the day of the park visit (includes Guests of Walt Disney World Swan Hotel, Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel and Shades of Green Resort). All other Guests can make their first selection when the park opens.

Soft openings for the new Magic Kingdom rollercoaster will take place from March 20 through April 2, 2023. TRON Lightcycle Run will officially open to guests on April 4, 2023.

Access to the attraction will be via a Virtual Queue or Lightning Lane access via Individual purchase, using My Disney Experience. A standby queue will not be available. Each Guest can request to enter the virtual queue no more than once per day throughout regular park hours during the soft opening.

Guests must have valid admission and a theme park reservation to join the virtual queue. There will be 2 daily opportunities to request to join the virtual queue for TRON Lightcycle / Run:

7:00 AM (Guests do not need to be in the park when they join, but must have a theme park reservation for Magic Kingdom park)

1:00 PM (Guests must be in Magic Kingdom park to join the virtual queue)

A virtual queue will still be in place when TRON Run opens on April 4, 2023.

Imagine that there are 100 boarding groups and 100 people trying to get a group at the distribution time. Now imagine that 95% of the people trying are successful right when it drops, but 5% of people have trouble with their internet and have to restart their app. In this case 95 people get a group in 5 seconds and 5 people get a group when the app restarts 3 minutes later. This is like what happened on Monday. If there are 110 people who want a boarding group, and there are still only 100 groups available, you would get a different result if the app performance rate was the same. In this case, 104 people would not have app problems. Of that, 100 would get a group in 5 seconds, 4 people with a working app would be out of luck, and 6 people who restart the app would be out of luck as well. This is similar to what happened Sunday. In this example, a change of 10% in the demand would change the boarding group availability by the observed 37x change in the availability window.

Thank you so much! That’s exactly what we are trying to do!

I actually did this on Sunday. I booked at 1:00 and got 105, then at 1:02 I booked again and got 161. Great idea if you want to ride at night.

Since the 1:00 drop seems to be lasting longer can you cancel your spot and rebook to get a later time (as long as times were available still)? Or would canceling not allow us to book again in the same drop?

7AM drop last 2 days: 5 seconds on Sunday 3 minutes on Memorial Day To what do we attribute these crazy wide swings? I’ll go out on a limb and say MK was not 37x busier on Sunday
