TRON Construction Update – May 18th, 2019 at Magic Kingdom (Photos, Video)

Hi everyone!

The TRON attraction construction that went vertical earlier this month at the Magic Kingdom now includes portions of track being added. We have photos and video from yesterday! I also added in a video from Disney at the end of the article, where Imagineers discuss how they’ve been working on construction here for about a year now and it took this long to go vertical with it. TRON is based on the popular Shanghai Disneyland attraction TRON Lightcycle Power Run and is planned to open in time for the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World in 2021. One great thing about Tron is that nothing was permanently closed to build it. The Tomorrowland Speedway closed temporarily (reopening yesterday) to adjust the track a bit, and the Walt Disney World Railroad is currently closed due to construction.

Here are are photos and video!

Not only has TRON construction included track over the past couple of days, but the Tomorrowland Speedway (as mentioned earlier) reopened yesterday and some of the moat has been filled. It’s only been a few days since we last visited the Magic Kingdom but a lot has changed.

This is our video from yesterday, and then photos.

Here is a look at the TRON construction from the People Mover, and we also have photos and video from Goofy’s Barnstormer queue and the monorail.

Steel support columns started going up a couple of weeks ago (our last TRON construction update was in late April and did not include them).

Track is visible through here.

Here are a few more photos from the People Mover.

The Goofy’s Barnstormer queue has great views of the overall construction. There are over 300 ride columns being installed for the attraction and the highest is over 80 feet tall.

Close up, here is an end to the track.

Here are more photos from Goofy’s Barnstormer.

It will be fun to have two solid E-Tickets in Space Mountain and TRON side-by-side.

This is an overall look at the Goofy’s Barnstormer queue and how wide the TRON project is – it isn’t all of it that can be seen here.

The path that isn’t open right now to Space Mountain gives moderate (blocked) views of the project.

And here is a look from the Tomorrowland Speedway, you can see a limited amount of the work but there is a fence.

And here are a couple of photos from the monorail.

The track can be seen from here too.

Here is video from Disney about the project, posted just a few days ago.

It will probably be almost a month until we are back at the Magic Kingdom for any other updates, since we have Disneyland coming up soon! I am looking forward to sharing all about Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge from Disneyland on opening day.
