Earlier this month, Walt Disney Imagineering and Magic Kingdom Park cast members celebrated a milestone in the construction of the TRON Lightcycle / Run attraction, when the final piece of the attraction’s ride track was lowered into place.

TRON Lightcycle / Run is a coaster-style attraction that will allow riders to board a train of two-wheeled Lightcycles for a thrilling race through the digital frontier. A similar attraction exists at Shanghai Disneyland, where it opened in 2016, and became an instant guest-favorite.

Our friends at Walt Disney Imagineering just shared this video with us, which offers an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at how the Tomorrowland attraction is coming together.

TRON Lightcycle / Run is set to open at Magic Kingdom Park in time for Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary in 2021.


  • The 50th is centered around October 2021.

    Nobody is certain but usually these anniversaries start a few months prior and last months after. I’d expect the 50th Celebration begin by Summer ’21, be in full swing for Fall ’21 and continue at least until Spring 2022 (if not further).

  • Question: What is going to be the launch date of the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney World so that My Family can plan My Upcoming Visit appropriately and catch the 50th Anniversary in 2021 or even 2022 ?

  • Saw the construction up close last week at MK. Looks awesome. Can’t wait for this to be up and running!
