More Steel Added to Tomorrowland Light & Power Co., Concrete Fully Encases Walt Disney World Railroad Wall Next to TRON Lightcycle Run
In Magic Kingdom, Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. is now closed for refurbishment to accommodate changes for the upcoming TRON Lightcycle / Run roller coaster. The coaster and a Walt Disney World Railroad tunnel also remain under construction.
Crews have added a steel framework to this corner of the gift shop.
Sheathing now covers most of the framework, which includes an extension to the building’s small awning.
Crews are using the water-resistant GlasRoc sheathing.
Some pipes are visible through the exposed steel.
This morning, crews were working on the corner closest to the shop’s entrance.
The awning has been extended here as well. Crews have removed some of the building’s paneling for work.
One crew member was in a scissor lift, while another was on the extended awning.
Blue tarps cover most of the awning on the side of the building. There is black sheathing taped to this corner of the awning.
Construction walls block access to the walkway next to Tomorrowland Light & Power Co.
Eventually, this will act as a gift shop for both Space Mountain and TRON Lightcycle / Run.
The foundation of a new walkway connecting Tomorrowland and Storybook Circus has been extended. It now cuts off just past a concrete wall. In the background, a crew member was working within a circle of concrete around the coaster’s canopy supports.
We saw another crew member reaching into one of the large concrete planters.
There’s a planter between the Storybook Circus walkway and the elevated walkway leading to the coaster entrance.
In addition to, well, plants, the planter may hold signage pointing to Storybook Circus and Fantasyland.
The planter at the front of the TRON Lightcycle / Run walkway will have a sign for the attraction. These two planters and the elevated walkway are surrounded by temporary wood fencing. Crews also have yet to complete paving at the end of the elevated walkway. In the photo above, it’s clear that a square of walkway on the right is slightly lower than the rest of the sidewalk.
