First Look at the Nighttime Lights for Tron Light Cycle Run. Excitement is building for the opening date of Disney’s newest ride, Tron Lightcycle Run in the Magic Kingdom. April 4th, 2023. Last night Cast Members were able to schedule a day and time to preview the coaster, and now we are getting real images from Disney of some of the attraction’s key components, the Canopy.

Greetings, Programs! As a kid, I spent countless hours playing video games at my local arcade. The anticipation of hearing a quarter drop into an arcade machine only fueled my excitement at the ensuing video competition (which was most likely me playing “Discs of Tron” again). I felt that same joy last night with my camera in hand as the “curved wave” canopy, called the Upload Conduit, was officially powered on in its entirety at TRON Lightcycle / Run presented by Enterprise. And I wanted you to be among the first to see these breathtaking images from this major milestone moment.

The Upload Conduit will serve as the digital bridge into The Grid for your Lightcycle when this attraction opens in Magic Kingdom Park on April 4. As a lifelong “TRON” fan, I was in awe. The massive structure was constructed of nearly 40 pieces, strategically assembled and aligned, to create the perfect system for moving Lightcycles to The Games.


I’ve seen the Upload Conduit from afar while riding the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover and the Tomorrowland Speedway, but nothing prepared me for being directly under it. When Lightcycles whiz by overhead, lights dance across the conduit leaving glowing hexagons.


These visuals are enhanced by familiar music from the “TRON: Legacy” soundtrack (something that is on heavy rotation in my house). I could have watched the colorful stripes of blue, orange and white chase along the canopy for hours.


Here are a few more images I captured from this milestone moment. Stay tuned in the coming weeks as I’ll be sharing even more details about this thrilling new attraction coming to Walt Disney World Resort. I can’t wait to race you on The Grid. End of line.
