TRON Lightcycle Run construction - July 26 2022
Posted: Tuesday July 26, 2022 11:43am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Construction continues at TRON Lightcycle Run in Magic Kingdom as crews work towards finally completing the new Disney World rollercoaster.

For a quick overview, watch the video below, and then scroll down to see more photos.

These closeups show a lot of concrete work around the entrance ramp.

Looking at the Walt Disney World Railroad tunnel below, the first signs of preparation work for the track are now visible.

The building at the top of the ramp that is presumed to be restrooms is looking very close to completion.

Finally, work is continuing all over the side of the Tomorrowland Power Co building, which will serve as the entrance and exit area for TRON.

Between the simple tap to open, and the separate unload side, these may be the best lockers in theme park history. For those keeping score.

Even Kevin Feige took his hat off when he rode it!

An issue for guests who use MDE, cell phone, for ride photos. Some guests either don't use MB or are using old MB

You’re apparently choosing to come to this negative conclusion which implies you’re supposed to just ignore it.

When has the pendulum swung in a positive direction since, say, 1998? Where are the major improvements that offset what has been lost? Off the top of my head… Pandora is better then Camp Minnie Mickey (but not, perhaps, better then Beastly Kingdom) and Everest is great. I think Dwarves and Pooh are nice and Mermaid is unfairly underrated, but it’s a lateral move from Toad, Snow White, and 20,000. I really love MMRR, but it should coexist with GMR. RotR is very good, if overpraised. But… The overall experience has declined to a degree unimaginable in the 90s. Capacity has deteriorated to a point that makes the parks, especially MK, a miserable slog. Reservations of all sorts rob any joyful spontaneity from the resort. Menus have shrunk, but that’s less of an issue since most restaurants need to be booked months in advance. EPCOT is a cruel shambles that is worse then it was 30 years ago in every significant respect. The MGM makeover was a cost-cut disappointment and TSL is garbage. Prices are larcenous. Hotels are significantly worse across the board. Service has declined. Entertainment has been slashed everywhere, and much of what remains hasn’t been updated since before Clinton was inaugurated. Festivals are lackluster non-events. There is no indication that Disney intends to fix any of this. It’s not a pendulum if it only ever swings one way. What, precisely, is the source of optimism for the future? The parks have been broken at a deeply fundamental level for over a decade and a half - what actual evidence indicates that has changed?

MDE could so show your locker number. That is messier and one more MDE required thing but would be something.

So, at Universal, they have a central area where you scan your ticket for each section of lockers. So you only have to remember the general area, not the specific locker number. This makes it seems like you are scanning the locker itself. Presumably available ones with be lit up green or something to indicate they are free. That being said, there appears to be some sort of console to use next to the lockers so maybe it’s an either/or and you can use that spot or directly on the locker.

Finding things objectively, or even subjectively bad does not mean you are negative as a person. Most here understand what you mean.

Magical. It's not a pendulum. It's a wrecking ball.

Hmm. Good point. I don't know... eventually?

As soon as the next truckload of dust arrives (magnet)

Yes, but we just came out of a time of plenty and Disney milked the park cows for everything it could to spend the money on Disney+. Looks like we are now headed into a lean/uncertain time, so when exactly do you think this pendulum is going to swing back?

So very true.

If nothing was awesome I wouldn’t be on here, sell my dvc, not renew annual passes every year, and keep going. Just because my opinion on some of what Disney is doing and has done over the years is not all positive doesn’t mean I’m wrong I give credit where credit is due but without pixie dust on my glasses
