Disney Files Permits for TRON Lightcycle Power Run Ride at Walt Disney World

We previously announced that a version of the TRON Lightcycle Power Run attraction that is currently in operation at Shanghai Disneyland is in the works for Walt Disney World.  We have learned today that permits have now been filed by Disney is in order to start the development process.  The new attraction will be located in the Tomorrowland area of Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. The location appears to be extremely large and is sitting directly next to Space Mountain.

The site for the new attraction covers part of where Tomorrowland Speedway currently resides, thus resulting in the permanent closure of the attraction.   Currently TRON Lightcycle Power Run is rumored to be ready to open around 2021, which would be just in time for Magic Kingdom’s 50th Anniversary celebration at the park.  Tomorrowland Speedway was an original attraction that opened in 1971 when Magic Kingdom first opened its doors to guests.

TRON Lightcycle Power Run debuted with the opening of Shanghai Disneyland on June 16th, 2016. It is the fastest of any Disney coaster around the globe, reaching over 60 miles per hour.  It is a semi-enclosed steel coaster that has you feeling like you are sitting on a cycle while you ride.  The attraction has been extremely popular and has received a lot of attention and envy from guests around the world.  The addition of this attraction at Walt Disney World will be a huge draw.

Here is a video of the Shanghai version of the attraction:

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
