A popular attraction at Walt Disney World Resort is receiving complaints about an issue that many Guests believe needs to be corrected.

Walt Disney World Resort, known as “The Most Magical Place on Earth,” is a highly popular tourist destination that attracts thousands of Guests daily. It consists of four theme parks: Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom, each offering a variety of experiences for Guests of all ages.

Disney World is renowned for regularly updating and introducing new attractions. One of its latest additions can be found in Magic Kingdom’s Tomorrowland. TRON Lightcycle / Run is a thrilling ride where Guests hop onto their own Lightcycles and embark on a high-speed adventure, racing against menacing Programs from the Grid. With eight Energy Gates to cross and the goal of securing victory for their team, TRON Lightcycle/Run stands as one of the fastest coasters across all Disney theme parks worldwide.

To experience TRON Lightcycle / Run, Disney World Guests have two options: they can join the virtual queue or purchase a Lightning Lane pass. Individual Lightning Lane entries are available for purchase, but their availability is limited, subject to change or closure, and may vary by date. Disney Guests can join the TRON Lightcycle / Run virtual queue using the My Disney Experience app. Please note that there will be no standby queue available. Each Disney World Guest can request to enter the virtual queue once per day during regular park hours. However, it’s important to keep in mind that joining the boarding groups for the virtual queue is subject to availability and not guaranteed. Due to limited capacity, not all boarding groups may be called to return, depending on the experience’s availability. Late arrivals may not be accommodated.

Recently, some Disney guests took to social media to express their dissatisfaction with TRON Lightcycle / Run’s distribution of virtual queues. One guest mentioned that they joined the virtual queue around 1:15 p.m. and were called at approximately 10:10 a.m. However, upon arriving at TRON Lightcycle/Run at 10:20 a.m., they encountered an unexpected line just to enter the virtual queue. This guest had to wait for 35 minutes before being able to scan in. They believe that Disney may be issuing an excessive number of virtual queues, leading to such delays.

While some waiting time is to be expected for popular attractions like TRON Lightcycle / Run, the question arises whether Disney should consider adjusting the number of boarding groups called simultaneously.
