Walt Disney World fans cannot wait for the opening of the TRON Lightcycle / Run. Construction began back in 2019 and was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, now that Disney Imagineers continue to work on the upcoming Tomorrowland roller coaster attraction, it seems we are inching closer to an opening day.

While receiving delays due to COVID-19 along with construction issues, the attraction continues to progress. The construction for the attraction began over four years ago and marked another milestone for the project.

The ride is a thrilling coaster that opened at the Shanghai Disneyland Resort in 2016. Since then, the attraction has proved to be a massive hit among Guests and coaster enthusiasts. We recently saw the coaster on ABC’s Disney Park special celebration, The Wonderful World of Disney: Magical Holiday Celebration.  Unfortunately, there was no official opening date announced in the preview.
