If you’re visiting Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom tomorrow, you’re definitely going to want to hear about this!
Magic Kingdom comprises six different neighborhoods, each with different attractions, eateries, shops, and entertainment offerings: Main Street, U.S.A., Adventureland, Frontierland, Liberty Square, Fantasyland, and Tomorrowland.
Each neighborhood has classic attractions to offer, but Tomorrowland is incredibly unique due to its mixed aesthetic.
With attractions such as the Tomorrowland Speedway, Tomorrowland Transit Authority Peoplemover, Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress, Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, and Space Mountain, there’s a particular aesthetic that can only be described as retrofuturism.
Retrofuturism refers to what people of the past thought the future would look like. These choices in decoration can look a little dated nowadays, but the charm cannot be denied.
However, with the new addition of TRON Lightcycle Run, some of the retrofuturism will be offset by a more modern futuristic aesthetic.
But the addition of TRON Lightcycle Run to the list of Tomorrowland attractions has also added something to the Magic Kingdom theme park: a closure.
On March 14, most of Tomorrowland will be closed starting at 5 p.m. Beginning at 6 p.m., the following Tomorrowland attractions will close, too: Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin, Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor, and the Tomorrowland Speedway.
So, why such a specific closure? Good Morning America will be filming a promotional video about the upcoming roller coaster, TRON Lightcycle Run.
TRON Lightcycle Run will open to the public on April 4, 2023, and will only be accessible by a virtual queue. In order to experience this new ride, Guests will need to join the virtual queue on the My Disney Experience mobile app.
