From the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover, we can see new white pieces at the entrance, covering the weather-proof sheathing.

Crew members in scissor lifts were working on the entrance and the canopy framework above.

There are two silver circles, one inside of the other, and a black circle at the center.

The entrance of TRON Lightcycle / Run is on a platform above the coaster’s launch. Compare to the photo below from TRON Lightcycle Power Run at Shanghai Disneyland.

In the story of the ride, this frame supports the device that transports guests into The Grid (the digital world of TRON).

Some black sheathing is still visible behind the new themed elements.

The seemingly final piece of curved roof was recently installed on this side of the tunnel.

Crews also continue to refurbish the side of Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. Guests will walk past the Space Mountain store to reach TRON Lightcycle / Run.

Walt Disney World has not announced an opening date for TRON Lightcycle / Run or a reopening date for the Walt Disney World Railroad. The coaster is based on the Shanghai Disneyland coaster, TRON Lightcycle Power Run. Watch our POV video of TRON Lightcycle Power Run below.

  1. I wonder how they will control the smoke (steam) coming from the railroad engines as they go through that long tunnel.
    I think at Disneyland there is a vent system in the Grand Canyon / Primeval World tunnel but this one appears to be just a long concrete shell.

  2. I can’t hardly wait for the opening of Tron and the Walt Disney World Railroad! Awesome News!
