I have adored TRON since the movie hit theaters in 1982.
And while my re-watch count on the original isn’t monumental, my viewings of TRON: Legacy number in the dozens.
And don’t get me started on listening to the sublime soundtrack courtesy Daft Punk or the animated series — TRON: Uprising — starring Elijah Wood.
So, when the original TRON attraction was installed in Shanghai Disneyland, I was mildly excited; my feelings tempered by the reality that I don’t expect to see China anytime soon.
But then there was the announcement that TRON was coming to Walt Disney World.
And now, the folks at the Magic Kingdom are celebrating a milestone in construction. TRON’s return is a reality:
Cast members and the project teams responsible for bringing the new TRON attraction to life at Magic Kingdom Park celebrated a major milestone this week — signing their names on one of the first steel support columns for the new attraction.
Magic Kingdom Park’s TRON attraction, which is currently being constructed in Tomorrowland, is based on the guest-favorite attraction TRON Lightcycle Power Run at Shanghai Disneyland. This coaster-style attraction will allow riders to board a train of two-wheeled Lightcycles for a thrilling race through the digital frontier.
The TRON attraction is set to open at Magic Kingdom Park in time for Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary in 2021.
I can’t wait. But what about you?
