Several straps extend from the top of the framework over the canopy pieces, possibly helping to secure them before the crew installs more pieces.

Almost the entire edge of the canopy on the Tomorrowland side has white paneling and some of the interior edges do as well.

Several large sections of the canopy were installed on this side earlier this month.

The lone wall we noticed a few days ago remains on the ground near the sidewalk leading to the coaster.

This is likely the start of the tunnel for the Walt Disney World Railroad. Accordingly, a trench now surrounds around it and more construction materials sit nearby.

  1. For perspective, Universal completed an entire theme park in the time span that people have been waiting for TRON to be completed. Velocicoaster was completed in one year during covid. Disney lack of priorities and incompetency has led to this. They put all their eggs in the fake Star Wars cruise basket.

  2. I love Tron: Lightcycle Run and I can’t hardly wait for next year for the opening of Tron!
