News Tomorrowland Speedway and Walt Disney World Railroad to be impacted by TRON construction at the Magic Kingdom

Has Big Hero 6 been in talks as a Stich replacement yet? I think it would fit quite nicely in Tomorrowland and Tokyo is already adding a ride there, so I thought maybe they's want to put the IP also in MK.
Tokyo is getting...bleh....a Big Hero 6 themed version of Alien Swirling Saucers....a bit disappointing to me.

I don't think they'll have a Big Hero 6 themed area there, but I wonder about the replacement for Star Tours in DHS

I can only see BH6 as a simulator ride. I don’t want that at all.

Nah, Star Tours is Indy bound.

Oh I know their use of the IP is dissappointing, but I’m afraid anything going into the old Stitch building will be dissappointing with the limited space they have. Big Hero 6 just seems like the best fit imo for Tomorrowland atm.

I can think of a few things they could do with the Stitch space, including VR experiences.

Also: Star Tours being Indy bound, so they're going to tear it down and build a Forbidden Eye like ride?

Don't take this as gospel, I just think that's the most economical (and latest Disney trend) way to do a "quick" add to a new miniland.

Looking at where they cut off the track and the trees that were left, it doesn't look like there will be a major change to the track.

The trees with the construction fencing around them don't appear to have been "left". They appear to have been transplanted there. Most of them appear to be right where the track was, so yes, the track would have to be amended.

Unless they are going to do more demolition, it looks like this would be the new route which isn't much different then the old one.

With track on both sides of the Main Street station being gone (at some point along the path) the train up front right now is most definitely staying up front for a bit.

It amuses me that the train is kinda just stuck up there on it's own little island of track, not connected to any larger system.

The only problem I see is that it still puts crowds on that section of the park, and the only other new thing, Runaway Railway is in the middle of the park, not too far from there. They really could use something new on Sunset Blvd.

If it has to stay, at least give it a Cars retheme ?
Supposedly it will be TRON related, but time will tell if they actually do it. That helps. But it just seems like a waste of space for such a small track that basically circles around and you're done. Disneyland and Paris have superior tracks that to me are worth keeping around. Tokyo, I believe, was similar to ours and there's likely a reason it's gone ;)
