Last summer, Disney announced that the TRON Lightcycle Coaster from Shanghai Disneyland would make its way to Walt Disney World just in time for its 50th anniversary. The new attraction will occupy an entirely new area next to Space Mountain in Tomorrowland behind the railroad tracks. As Disney begins construction, a few modifications will be made to nearby attractions.
First, the Walt Disney World Railroad will temporarily cease motion and park at the Main Street Station starting in December 2018. During this time, guests will be able to get an up-close look at the railroad and take advantage of one-of-a-kind photo opportunities.
The Tomorrowland Speedway will also close for a portion of 2019, as the attraction’s track is adjusted to accommodate the TRON show building. It will reopen as the same attraction in the summer of 2019.
