TRON Lightcycle / Run is Magic Kingdom’s newest attraction — and one of its most thrilling!
Board your Lightcycle and be instantly launched into the Grid on this roller-coaster ride through the world of Disney’s TRON movies. Along the way, race a rival (digital) team to see which of you can pass through all the energy points first. Try not to get derezzed!
The ride offers much more than typical Magic Kingdom roller coasters, thanks to high-resolution animated graphics that really make you feel like you’ve jumped straight into these popular films. In addition, part of the launch sequence is outdoors under a canopy; at night, it’s bathed in vibrant animated lights. For this reason, we suggest a nighttime ride if possible.
One thing’s for certain: you won’t have to wait in line to ride — at least not physically. Instead, Disney is implementing its virtual queue for the ride, at least during the initial period after its grand opening.
Rather than a traditional standby line in which Guests simply stand in line, you’ll need to use the MyDisneyExperience app to get a virtual spot in line. Then you can go do other things while you wait). Spaces open up daily at 7 AM and again at 1 PM. On dates when Resort Guests get Extended Evening Theme Park Hours, another round of queueing starts at 6 PM.
Available spots may fill up in literally just a few seconds, so be sure to read Disney’s extensive instructions ahead of time so you have the best chance at snagging a spot.
