As soft openings continue for TRON Lightcycle Run at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom, the operating hours are being extended to near regular park hours.


Soft openings began on Monday from 9am to 6pm, and were extended today by 90 minutes to 7:30pm. On Thursday, TRON will operate from 9am to 8pm.

The Virtual Queue continues to reach capacity very quickly. Both the 7am and 1pm queues stayed open for just over 3 seconds today. As a reminder, there is no conventional standby line available at TRON Lightcycle Run.

Lightning Lane availability improved today, remaining open until 7:45am. Still not long enough for non-resort hotel guests to make a purchase however.

TRON Lightcycle Run will officially open April 4 2023.

Good attraction, but like many Disney attractions of this generation just far too short. In this instance another 30-60 seconds could have changed it.
