Magic Kingdom Announces Temporary Attraction Closures to Make Room for Tron

Magic Kingdom

There are many new attraction coming to Walt Disney World in the next few years. The one I am most excited about is the Tron coaster coming to the Magic Kingdom. Today, the “Tron Now Programming” billboard just went up inside the Magic Kingdom near the Storybook Circus area.

Tron is being built in the space near Space Mountain. During the construction, a few of the Park’s attractions will be closed for some time to make way for the new coaster.

First off, the Walt Disney World Railroad will suspend it’s grand-circle tours of the Magic Kingdom beginning in December of this year. During this time, the train will be parked at the Main Street Station allowing Guests an up-close-and-personal look at the railroad and pose for some awesome photo opportunities. No time frame on when the Walt Disney World Railroad will resume operations has been given.

Secondly, the Tomorrowland Speedway will be closed while its track is adjusted in 2019. When the attraction reopens in the Summer of 2019, it will be still be the same attraction guests know and love – just with some minor changes.

The addition of the Tron coaster to the Magic Kingdom was announced over a year ago at the biannual D23 Expo. The is scheduled to open just in time of Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary celebration in 2021. The ride will be designed after the TRON Lightcycle Power Run at Shanghai Disneyland and seen in the photo above. This coaster-style attraction allows riders to board a train of two-wheeled Lightcycles for a thrilling race through the digital frontier. TRON Lightcycle Power Run debuted on Shanghai Disneyland’s opening day and quickly became the highest-rated attraction at the park.
