On our trip to Magic Kingdom today, we stopped by TRON to check in on the construction progress and were greeted with several new updates since the last time we dropped by.

While there are piles of dirt and building materials, as well as orange plastic construction barriers, and pits in the ground scattered throughout the site as per usual, we saw some exciting new additions inside the building.

Inside of the main show building, several sections of new track have been added. It can be tricky to see them as they are blocked by exterior track and the framework of the building, but nestled right inside, you can see the pieces wrapped in white plastic. The white plastic is a protective covering to shield the track pieces from the elements and any debris from heavy construction on the walls.

Outside of the ride building, construction workers can be seen on green high lifts working to add supports for walls that will eventually enclose the building. Several new sections of supports have been added to the front of the building since our last update, as well as most of the supports for the back wall.

Large sections of semi-circular tubing can be seen sitting outside waiting to be added to the coaster.

I think that the Tron light cycle roller coaster is an eyesore and it’s going to be an eyesore even when it’s finished. I really think they should have put it in Epcot. I truly think that Walt would have never approved. But then Walt was motivated by love. Bob Iger seems to bo motivated only by money.
