VIDEO: The Crane Is Coming Down at Tron Coaster Construction Site
This is a day of awesome milestones Disney friends! Not only has Casey’s Corner officially opened to the public but the large red crane is coming down at the TRON coaster as construction on this massive state-of-the-art coaster continues!
If you saw our Happily Ever After photos that we took from Disney’s Contemporary Resort, you’ll know that the Disney World skyline has had a new addition.
The big red crane pictured above towered over Tomorrowland.
The crane was brought in to help hoist the metal pieces of the magnificent outdoor canopy into place!
Today our MickeyBlogger Greg was on the scene where crews could be seen hard at work dismantling the crane.
Not only does this spell good news for the Magic Kingdom skyline but it also means that progress is being made on this much-anticipated Tomorrowland coaster.
Drawing it’s inspiration from TRON Lightcycle/Power Run at Shanghai Disney this coaster once completed will immerse guests in an environment similar to cyberspace landscape depicted in the TRON films.
The outdoor canopy will be illuminated at night to the delight of guests and coaster riders!
As of yet, Disney has not announced an official opening date for the TRON coaster to open.
We’re hoping we may hear more as Disney World inches ever closer to its 50th Anniversary Celebration on October 1st.
This will mark the second coaster in Tomorrowland and will be near to the iconic Space Mountain.
For those visiting the parks in the weeks ahead, you can get stunning views of the construction site from the Barnstormer at Storybook Circus and the PeopleMover jn Tomorrowland.
These images were taken from Storybook Circus. You can see Barnstormer to your right.
Construction has taken over the area previously reserved for the Walt Disney World Railroad which is currently suspended.
Once construction is completed, Disney will need to adjust the track of the railroad around the new coaster.
We absolutely cannot wait for this new addition to Magic Kingdom and promise to keep you posted.
In the meantime, here’s some awesome crane footage that you’ll definitely want to check out!
