TRON Lightcyle / Run Area Now Open to All Guests at Magic Kingdom
Whether you’ve had the chance to experience the TRON Lightycyle / Run attraction yet, any guests who have visited the Magic Kingdom over the weekend will attest that excitement for the ride is palpable right across Tomorrowland!
This is because the whole area surrounding the attraction – including that spectacular canopy – is now open for guests to explore. Ready to join the grid? Keep reading!
Tucked away in the far corner of Tomorrowland, the whole area surrounding TRON Lightcycle / Run sure is atmospheric.
With the curvy canopy, stylish bridge, and whooshing sounds of the trains whizzing past, it’s a zone full of futuristic vibes and wonder to behold.
Previously, only guests with tickets to ride the attraction (either with boarding passes or advanced preview registrations) were permitted to enter this brand-new area.
Now, the barriers are down, and all guests are welcome to explore!
Although the highly-anticipated attraction doesn’t officially open to guests until April 4th, there has been plenty of buzz in this part of Tomorrowland over the past few weeks to keep guests thoroughly tuned-in.
Mickey and friends have been welcoming guests for previews of the attraction, while a soft opening period is currently underway for guests to experience the ride before the official opening. The “TRON Identity Program” is giving guests a lot to talk about, and sneak peeks of ride merchandise and PhotoPass lenses are also giving us all the excitement!
Most recently, it was the debut of the brand-new food kiosk named Energy Bytes that signalled another step closer to the ride’s official opening, located just outside the attraction.
You can read the MickeyBlog review of all the offerings available at this booth here, and see if anything takes your fancy!
Now the TRON canopy area is fully open to guests, we thoroughly recommend you visit the area on your next trip to the Magic Kingdom. While you’ll need a boarding pass to properly check out the awesome queue details and ride the attraction itself, the exterior areas and canopy are fantastic to explore, take photos, and admire the ride’s design.
After all, a good portion of the coaster takes place outside, so you can get a good grasp of the ground-breaking ride design just from standing under that canopy and seeing the vehicles shoot past!
And, as you can see from our photos, many guests have been enjoying exploring the area already this weekend. The energy is palpable, and we can’t wait to be here on April 4th for the official ride opening!
So, next time you’re passing through Tomorrowland, be sure to head to that breath-taking canopy and admire the ride up-close.
We’re just days away from the official opening now, and can’t wait to share all other TRON updates as the date zooms nearer!
