As long as Carousel of Progress stays, I'm okay with this.
Hearing confirmation (nothing official of course). Doesn't make sense now, does it? Wouldn't it make sense for D23?
There's a major change planned regardless.If they go with something that large and with such obvious theme and aesthetic, wouldn't that force a MAJOR change to the overall appearance of Tomorrowland? It would look weird for TL to look the way it does and then have the Tron coaster plopped down within its borders.
What is a roller coaster better suited to Tomorrowland that is also a new build? Guardians. SO happy to hear how responsible they are with NOT building it in the place it should be going...................
CONFIRMED: TRON Lightcycle Power Run Rollercoaster to Replace Tomorrowland Speedway at the Magic Kingdom
In October of 2016, we told you that Walt Disney World was eyeing the addition of the popular TRON Lightcycle Power Run attraction from Shanghai Disneyland, and in April 2017 we updated our rumor when preliminary budgeting teams from Florida were sent out to Shanghai to take a look at the attraction. Well, with the D23 Expo just days away, it now seems certain that the attraction will be announced on Saturday, July 15th.TRON Lightcycle Power Run will open at the Magic Kingdom just before the park’s 50th birthday (probably 2020/21), replacing the Tomorrowland Speedway attraction which opened in 1971 as the Grand Prix Raceway. The Speedway will likely close sometime in 2018 to make way for this construction.
