Most people’s focus might be on Galaxy’s Edge over at Hollywood Studios, but I don’t let that distract me from what’s next at Magic Kingdom. Construction has been underway in Tomorrowland on the upcoming Tron coaster, a replica of the attraction at Shanghai Disneyland.
One of the best views from outside the park (without access to a helicopter, of course) is from the roof of the Contemporary Resort. With a proper camera lens or a pair of binoculars, you can see the entire construction site.
You can see the foundation, as well at pylons and scaffolding for the upcoming support pillars for both the ride track and the building.
You can see those supports pretty well from inside the park, as well. This view is from aboard the PeopleMover.
The construction crew is always hard at work in this spot every time I’m here. They have a long way to go, and thankfully, they don’t seem to be asleep on the job.
It takes heavy equipment to build something this big. I believe these are for moving dirt and such.
It’s rare to be able to see a construction site with this much freedom on Disney property. If it’s anything like the original attraction in Shanghai, we’ll get to see the coaster track itself go up before they put the covering over it. That will be really interesting to see.
We’ll keep you updated as soon as this construction project goes vertical. Tron will open in time for the 50th anniversary of Magic Kingdom in 2021.
