Following four years of ride closure due to Tron Lightcycle coaster development, plus associated pandemic-related delays and its own corresponding refurbishment, the Walt Disney World Railroad has finally reopened. The refreshed Railroad now tunnels through the new Tron Lightcycle Rollercoaster pavilion with relevant, if somewhat incongruous, audio that has period narration turning to intergalactic travel … which is, in turn, cut short by futuristic locomotive threat analysis narration.
But don’t take my word for it, check out the below video (and feel free to compare it to the 2018 Tomorrowland script).
It’s great to see the Magic Kingdom Railroad back in action, especially during the Christmas/New Years guest surge, as it’s a fun and effective way to catch your breath (and a breeze) between the more strenuous park activities. However, the Tron Lightcycle Run roller coaster still needs a bit more time in the oven, with Disney targeting a Spring 2023 opening.
