Walt Disney World’s TRON Lightcycle attraction has been taking major strides when it comes to construction! The development of the attraction has been moving at a steady pace even with the delay of the pandemic park closure.

Now, with construction moving full speed ahead towards the Walt Disney World 50th anniversary, Guests can now see the structure of the coaster really begin to take shape. One of the most recognizable features to the TRON attraction, is the glowing canopy that surrounds the coaster.

Just this September, Walt Disney Imagineers announced the installation of the first piece of the canopy- also known as the Upload Conduit.

Altogether, the Upload Conduit will consist of 40 major pieces that will be a beacon of brightly colored lights in Tomorrowland.

Now, thanks to @bioreconstruct on Twitter, we have an aerial view of the TRON attraction’s canopy being staged before installation. The post reads:

With the placement of the wave canopy, Walt Disney Imagineers have to be very cautious to not do any damage to the track. So, for now, the TRON Lightcycle Power Run coaster track is being covered to prevent damage.
