With the TRON: Lightcycle / Run opening date quickly approaching, Cast Members are making sure Tomorrowland is in tip-top shape before guests flock to check out the new attraction this April.
Since the New Year, we’ve had a LOT of updates not only across Disney World but specifically in Magic Kingdom.
Just the past few days have held a ton of breaking news. From changes to resort parking and more additions to Genie+ to some MASSIVE ride updates, there are a lot of changes in store this year. Let’s take a look and see what’s been going on in Magic Kingdom recently!
The ride is set to open on April 4th, 2023 and we’ve been not-so-patiently waiting and watching it be constructed for the past FIVE years. But now, we’re just a few months away and that means there are some big construction updates happening. Today we spotted something new near the ride!
The new Tomorrowland ride will be making its official debut in spring 2023, and we’ve been bringing you the latest construction updates as we prepare for its arrival. As the ride gets ready to open, it has gone through a variety of different phases of testing the ride vehicles. And now we have an updated look at the latest phase of tests.
We’re getting closer and closer to the opening of the TRON roller coaster in Magic Kingdom!
Back in 2017, Disney announced plans to open TRON Lightcycle Run in Magic Kingdom’s Tomorrowland, and its opening was subsequently delayed from 2021 to Spring 2023. Our favorite way to keep an eye on construction progress is to take a ride on the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover and on a recent ride, we noticed a BIG development!
If you haven’t been to Magic Kingdom in a minute, then there’s a lot to catch up on!
The park is decorated for Halloween and is hosting Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party multiple times a week (which has now sold out, by the way!). Because of this, we’ve seen new Halloween merchandise and treats around the park. On top of that, there’s some considerable progress happening with the TRON coaster in Tomorrowland (we just found out that it opens in the spring!). But besides those things, there are some smaller merchandise and construction updates you might’ve missed, and we’ve rounded them all up for you. This is what’s new in Magic Kingdom!
The Walt Disney World Railroad has quite literally been closed for YEARS.
The train used to travel in a circle around Magic Kingdom, but was temporarily put out of commission when Disney started building TRON. We still have no update from Disney on when the train might be back, but we’re seeing some encouraging signs in the park!
If you haven’t been to Magic Kingdom in a minute, it’s time to sit back, relax, and get caught up on the latest news!
Well, we at DFB also have our sights set on the upcoming attraction — TRON Lightcycle Run. And while Disney hasn’t announced an opening timeline for this ride quite yet, we’re monitoring construction to see how close (or far) we are from an opening. Let’s take a look!
