You can now pay extra to ride the new TRON Lightcycle / Run coaster at Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World Resort without crowds.

TRON Lightcycle / Run officially opened to the public on April 4, 2023. The attraction,Ā located in Tomorrowland at Magic Kingdom Park, is a high-speed roller coaster-style ride based on the TRON franchise, where riders board a futuristic motorcycle and race through a virtual world filled with neon lights and special effects.

The popular attraction took a while to construct, but during its soft opening and now that it’s officially opened, it has been a huge hit. For now, there are two popular ways for Guests to experience the attraction. Disney World Guests have to either book a spot in the virtual queue, where they’ll receive a boarding group number and an estimated time to come back to the attraction, or they have to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane pass.

However, there is one more way that you can now enjoy TRON Lightcycle / Run, but it will cost a bit more money.

Magic Kingdom Park offers Extended Evening Hours to select Disney Resort Guests, typically on Wednesdays. Guests are encouraged to check Disney’s official website and the My Disney Experience app for the latest updates.

We’re happy to inform you that, though you’ll have to pay more to stay a Disney Deluxe Resort, if you choose to, you’ll have a special time to book a spot in the virtual queue to enjoy TRON Lightcycle / Run. This means though you’re paying a bit more, you’ll be able to enjoy the new Magic Kingdom attraction without crowds, making for less wait times.

“An additional opportunity to request to join the virtual queue will be available at 6:00 p.m. on select dates duringĀ extended evening theme park hours, a benefit for registered Guests staying at a Disney Deluxe Resort, Disney Deluxe Villa Resort or other select hotels. Guests with this benefit do not need to be in Magic Kingdom to request to join at that time.

“These Guests will need valid admission and a theme park reservation for the same park on the same day to experience extended evening hoursā€”or, they may experience extended evening hours if they have a ticket or Annual Pass with the Park Hopper option and first enter the park for which they made their reservation.”

The ride first opened at Shanghai Disneyland in 2016 and was later announced to be coming to Magic Kingdom in Florida as well. Its opening date at Magic Kingdom was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but that’s all behind us now as the attraction is open and off to a great start.
