PHOTOS: Latest Construction Shows Expanded Track on TRON Lightcycle Run at the Magic Kingdom

While visiting the Magic Kingdom today, we thought we would pop over and see if there was any progress on our favorite construction site. Even with the less than stellar weather, we were lucky to still spot some updates in between raindrops.


Over at Storybook Circus, you can get a pretty close view of the track still visible through the exposed show building. With construction moving along and the exterior beams taking more and more shape, it won’t be long till we won’t be able to see inside anymore.

Over near Space Mountain, you can see pillars all lined up in a row, and they seem to be encasing a track. This is interesting, seeing as the only track we had seen prior to this was designated solely to the main show building.

If this is in fact a track, we may be seeing a separate area for loading/unloading. In this case, the main portion of the ride would take place in a secondary building, which isn’t out of the ordinary for a Disney attraction.

With similar pillars reaching out further onto the site and so many areas still showing no signs of work done, it makes you wonder how much more of the attraction layout still hasn’t been built yet.

Hopefully, in the coming weeks, more construction will give us a clearer idea of what TRON is going to look like once it’s completed. If you’re curious to see how TRON will more or less look like, check out this video of its sister attraction, the TRON Lightcycle Power Run roller coaster, from Shanghai Disneyland:

The TRON Lightcycle Run coaster is scheduled to open at Magic Kingdom in time for Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary in 2021.

‘Till next time, make sure to keep reading WDWNT to see more on TRON as well as other attractions coming soon!

If you go on property from the backstage area behind the Magic Kingdom (Reams Rd to Center Dr to World Dr) you get a fairly close view of the backside of the Tron grounds, not to mention Space mountain also. You also go right past the Monorail “roundhouse”. It is open to regular traffic as long as you do not attempt to access any of the backstage facilities, a fascinating little glimpse behind the magic.
