A popular attraction at Walt Disney World Resort is moving away from Disney Genie+.

At Disney World, guests can immerse themselves in various attractions, shows, dining experiences, and entertainment options. The resort has four main theme parks: Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Each of these parks offers its own unique theme and attractions, catering to a wide range of interests and ages.

One of the most highly anticipated attractions at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom was TRON Lightcycle/Run, which opened last April. This thrilling roller coaster ride is based on Disney’s popular TRON franchise, which combines cutting-edge technology and a futuristic aesthetic to create an exhilarating experience. TRON Lightcycle/Run allows guests to climb aboard sleek, neon-lit lightcycles, just like the ones featured in the movies. The ride takes you on a high-speed journey through the digital world of Tron, complete with twists, turns, and heart-pounding excitement.

ParkTwister tweeted that TRON Lightcycle / Run had changed for the first time for a standby line. TRON LightCycle / Run changed how they did the lines for an After-Hour Event.

Tonight for the first time ever TRON is offering a traditional standby line during an After Hours event – Currently posting a 35-minute wait!

While TRON LightCycle / Run does not have a standby line during regular park hours, this is a fun “plus” for those visiting the After Hours event. During the day, of course, guests cannot join a standby line. They either have to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane or try and get in the Virtual Queue that will give them a return time to head to the attraction.

The Virtual Queue opens at 7:00 a.m. and again at 1:00 p.m. daily. Guests must be inside Magic Kingdom Park to request to join the Virtual Queue at 1:00 p.m. The other attraction that you must reserve a Virtual Queue or purchase an Individual Lightning Lane pass for is Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind located at EPCOT.
