Walt Disney World Railroad to Remain Closed Until 2021 Due to TRON Lightcycle Run Construction at the Magic Kingdom
The Walt Disney World Railroad has been closed since the beginning of 2019 for track work in relation to TRON Lightcycle Run construction. Images have circulated of missing track near Tomorrowland as work is done to reroute the railroad through the TRON attraction.
It has been speculated that the railroad would remain closed until TRON Lightcycle Run was ready to open due to the proximity to the railroad. Now, we have confirmation as internal refurbishment calendars have shown the Main Street Railroad Station will remain closed for all of 2020.
Interesting to note, however, is that the Fantasyland and Frontierland Stations are listed as reopening at the beginning of 2020. At this time, it is not known if the refurbishment schedule for these stations has been updated yet, or if the railroad will operate in “shuttle mode” back and forth between the two stations, as it has in Disneyland in previous times.
