BREAKING: Permits Filed and Building Placement Revealed for Tron Coaster and Main Street Theater

It’s been a busy week in the world of permitting for Walt Disney World construction projects. Today the permits for both the TRON Lightcycle Power Run coaster in Tomorrowland and the new Main Street Theater in the Magic Kingdom were filed.mk permit tron 1

Because both of these projects are actually in Tomorrowland, they have been combined into one permit. The new Main Street Theater will be located behind the former Galaxy Palace Theater in Tomorrowland, but it will be accessible from Main Street U.S.A.

The permits show the placement and size of the TRON Lightcycle Power Run show building (labeled “MK2”), almost due north of Space Mountain. The building will occupy a huge footprint, even larger than Space Mountain. It will be very visible (as Space Mountain is now) from the Top of the World Lounge at Bay Lake Tower and the California Grill at the Contemporary Resort.

The Main Street Theater (labeled “MK1”) will occupy most of what is now a parking lot southwest of the Carousel of Progress and behind the now-shuttered Galaxy Palace Theater.

  1. I think it would be cool to replace the speedway ride with something Meet The Robinsons…maybe like a drivable time machine ride of some sort?

  2. Hopefully this is the first of many Magic Kingdom expansions. I’m just not into Avatar and Toy Story Land looks like a kids park so all I’ve been looking forward to is Gondola Transportation

  3. Hoping this also means a retheming of the speedway to Wreck It Ralph. It would make a lot of sense since both Tron and Ralph take place inside of a computer world.
