Soft opening previews of TRON Lightcycle / Run continue at Magic Kingdom with extended operating hours today. The attraction will be available until 7:30 p.m., a full ninety minutes past the attraction’s previous closing time.

TRON Lightcycle / Run will be extending its operating hours today.

Soft opening previews of TRON Lightcycle / Run at Magic Kingdom have extended operating hours today. Previously, the virtual queue and Individual Lightning Lane access for this attraction was available from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Disney moved the closing time to 7:30 p.m. for today.

This extension allows more visitors to experience the attraction; however, it will still be closed before sunset. Guests will have to wait a little bit longer to enjoy riding TRON Lightcycle / Run after dark.

If you haven’t had a chance yet, make sure you check out our full point-of-view (POV) video of the ride! If you prefer a text version, you can check out our photo tour here.

TRON Lightcycle / Run Soft Opening

TRON Lightcycle / Run began its soft opening with limited guest capacity on March 20, 2023. The attraction officially opens April 4, but guests can attempt to ride the newest coaster in Magic Kingdom early via a virtual queue booking or a purchased Individual Lightning Lane pass. A traditional standby line is not available.

If you need a little help getting set up with Individual Lightning Lane access, check out our full guide. We also have information on how to sign up for the TRON Lightcycle / Run virtual queue.

Josh D'Amaro Tron Lightcycle / Run Preview

The ride is one of many additions planned for Disney properties, and one of the company’s top executives, Josh D’Amaro, recently made a statement indicating it was only “the tip of the iceberg.”

Energy Bytes

Tomorrowland also received a new food stand for the opening of TRON Lightcycle / Run. Energy Bytes is located just outside of the new queue entrance and features some new flavors for Magic Kingdom.

Check out our full review of the unique offerings in the video above! We also have a full written review of our culinary experience available for you to peruse.

The previous coaster that opened in Magic Kingdom was the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. It was made available to the public on May 28, 2014. It’s been nearly ten years since Magic Kingdom received a brand new ride.
