Walt Disney World May Replace Tomorrowland Speedway with TRON Lightcycle Power Run

While several sites are calling this rumor confirmed, Disney has not made a formal announcement.  But yeah, all signs point to this happening.

There has been a lot of speculation and rumors about changes coming to the Tomorrowland area at Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World.  One extremely exciting rumor that is looking even more likely is that a TRON Lightcycle Power Run Rollercoaster may be in the works for Tomorrowland.  The site for the new attraction is expected to be where Tomorrowland Speedway currently resides, thus resulting in a permanent closure for the attraction.   Currently the attraction 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 with the grand opening in 1971, so this would mean one of the original attractions would no longer be in place to pave the way for the next exciting coaster.

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 would be a huge draw.

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

Currently there have been no formal announcements from Disney on this possible development or any known permits filed to start development.  If this is truly a valid rumor, we are expecting that the development would be announced at the upcoming D23 expo later this month!

What would you all think of this possible development in Tomorrowland?  My family is on pins and needles hoping that this one is true!

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!
