Disney Park and Resort Photo Updates

TRON Lightcycle Run Construction Photo and Video Update at the Magic Kingdom from October 6th, 2020

Hi everyone!

We were at the Magic Kingdom today and took photos and video of the TRON (Lightcycle Run) coaster construction from various angles, including from the Swiss Family Treehouse, Tomorrowland Speedway, Astro Orbitor and Storybook Circus. My last Tron construction update was September 8th, about a month ago.

From the Astro Orbitor, we can also see the People Mover track and ride vehicles.

Here is our video.

I miss the People Mover and hope it will reopen soon.

TRON was scheduled to open in time for Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary (which is October 1st, 2021). I am not sure if it is on schedule or not.

I haven’t been up in the Swiss Family Treehouse in quite some time and the view is really good here.

The overall Tomorrowland view including Space Mountain makes for a nice skyline. There is still a ways to go for the TRON construction to include the full canopy like in Shanghai Disneyland.

Storybook Circus is another good viewing location. This is where the TRON sign is.

Here is a video of TRON in Shanghai.

And more photos.

Space Mountain can be seen in the distance, beyond the construction.

There are a lot of temporary supports and more were being placed as we were there.

Some of the canopy can be seen here on the ground.


Workers were on top of Space Mountain.

A piece of the support was being brought down to the ground.

And we rode the Tomorrowland Speedway. Here I am heading underneath the People Mover track.

The Tomorrowland Speedway gives another unique look at the construction work.

There were workers visible.

And I turned around and took this photo.

My last view was walking from Disney’s Grand Floridian today to Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. The coaster track can be seen even from here.

I expect it will be at least a couple of more weeks before we have another photo update of TRON. It is nice to see the progression on what will be a second Tomorrowland roller coaster.
