Disney Guests have been eager to ride as soon as possible. Exciting news came today when it was annouced that D23 Gold Member would be able to ride TRON Lightcycle/ Ride at a special preview event on Saturday, March 18, 2023. This means that ticketed those with a D23 Gold Membership would get to ride the TRON roller coaster almost a month before the general public will.

While this news is incredibly exciting, some fans were suprised to see the hefty price tag attached to the ride. To ride TRON Lightcycle/Run, every D23 Gold Member must purchase a ticket. Tickets are $50 + $7 in processing fees. This is a high price for a ride that will be open to public Guests on April 4th, not long after.

Tickets for TRON Lightcycle/ Run will go on sale this Wednesday, February 15. Sales wuill start at 10 am PT/ 1 pm ET. The D23 page explains that tickets will be capped to comply with the Park Reservation Guidelines of Walt Disney World. Once the ticket link is live, D23 Gold Members will enter a virtual queue until they are given the opportunity to buy tickets. Tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis, and Disney cannot guarentee tickets for every D23 Gold Member.
