Tron Lightcycle/Run Webpage Debuts on WDW Site
Earlier today, Josh D’Amaro, Chairman, Disney Parks, Products and Experiences offered a glimpse at his riviting first ride on Tron Lightcycle/Run. He also gave a Spring 2023 official opening season for the new Magic Kingdom roller coaster to the crowd at the 2022 D23 Expo.
This afternoon, Walt Disney World also released the official webpage for the long-awaited attraction. With construction beginning four years ago, fans are beyond ready to take their first trip to The Grid.
Shortly after D’Amaro’s announcements during today’s Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products presentation, titled “A Boundless Future,” the Tron Lightcycle/Run webpage went live. Still, the rendering of the attraction has yet to appear on the map featured on the page.
With details still left reletively unknown, the new site does detail a bit more about the narrative involved in the high-speed attraction that sits right next to Space Mountain in Tomorrowland at Walt Disney World Resort.
With the exterior concrete work really coming together, project cast members also recently tested the lighting and sound that will bring the attraction to life.

Disney Parks also shared an exciting video today on TikTok of D’Amaro during his first race through The Grid on Tron Lightcycle/Run. When asked what it was like riding Tron, D’Amaro cheered and chanted, “One more time,” before exclaiming that the ride was “Awesome.”
Hopefully, we will get a more specific opening date for Tron Lightcycle/Run as work continues to near completion over the next few weeks.
