It has been a long time since The Walt Disney Company announced the addition of a TRON attraction at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Central Florida. Like the ride found in Shanghai Disneyland at Shanghai Disney Resort, TRON Lightcycle/Run has already spiced up the Magic Kingdom skyline with its glowing blue canopy and will hopefully soon board Guests for their trip to The Grid.

TRON Lightcycle / Run is a new attraction to Magic Kingdom Park at the Walt Disney World Resort. The ride was first announced five years ago during the D23 Expo 2017 in Anaheim, Southern California, and was slated to open during Disney World’s 50th anniversary — The World’s Most Magical Celebration. However, construction was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and no new opening date was announced.

This morning on Good Morning America, we got a special preview of the newest roller coaster coming to Walt Disney World in 2023 and what it’s like to take in the experience of the latest thrill ride. A video of the sneak peek can be found in the tweet here:

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.
