With Tomorrowland Speedway and the Walt Disney World Railroad temporarily closed since December, construction in the area has taken off in preparation for the upcoming TRON Lightcycle Power Run roller coaster. Just today, Coastal Steel, Inc. filed a permit to “install ride steel” in the vicinity. This doesn’t necessarily just mean coaster track either.

According to a February 2018 filing, work on the TRON Lightcycle Power Run roller coaster at the Magic Kingdom is set to be completed just in time for Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary in 2021. Work officially started on February 6, 2018, the permits claim the work will be complete by August 16, 2021 (barring any delays.) The attraction should open in Tomorrowland somewhere around that time.

Just an FYI, this is a “notice of commencement”, not a building permit. This is the contractor (Coastal) legally telling the customer (Disney) that they are officially beginning work, which legally puts Disney on the hook for paying the bills.

The permits were issued before the project ever started….

But, yes, I AM excited to ride a light cycle!!
