It’s another sunny morning at Magic Kingdom, which means it’s time to hop on the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover and check in on construction of TRON Lightcycle / Run.

A lot of dirt has been moved around near the sidewalk that will lead guests from the rest of Tomorrowland to TRON Lightcycle / Run.

Space is being cleared for a second sidewalk that will go beneath the first (see it in concept art at the end of this article).

As we reported yesterday, the entrance of the attraction is surrounded by tarps right now.

There’s still plenty more canopy to be installed though.

Here’s what the canopy looks like from the underside, as seen from Storybook Circus.

The blue safety netting is temporary and being removed as the final canopy is installed.

We can also see a curve of white paneling on the edge of the canopy from this angle.

Wall paneling has yet to be installed on all sides of it, but we haven’t seen much work on it in recent weeks.

TRON Lightcycle Run concept art

Here is the concept art for the exterior of TRON Lightcycle / Run, which currently has no opening date. Guests will walk past a sign for the attraction and beneath the canopy on an elevated sidewalk to the attraction’s entrance. A second sidewalk winds beneath the first. The tunnel through the center is for the Walt Disney World Railroad.
