    With the canopy, missing most of the second level, and with the train passing under the canopy and the pedestrian walkway.

    So, no changes to the Speedway then? It's going to stick out even more.

    Does this mean Speedway changes were cut at the last minute?

    The speedway route in the concept art looks different than it is currently.

    My ONLY problem with this so far is the placement. It looks a little odd and almost "plopped down" right next to Space Mountain. I am excited to have the chance to ride this though!

    Disney Fans: Hey, can we have one of those awesome rides you're building overseas?
    WDW: Sure!
    Disney Fans: Cool!! We're getting Mystic Manor! Or Shanghai Pirates! Or maybe Monster Inc from Tokyo... or anything from Disney Seas...
    WDW: It's TRON!
    Disney Fans: But... but we have Space Mountain, and its pretty much just the same thing, only shorter...
    WDW: But it's based on the super-popular IP TRON!
    Disney Fans: Well...
    WDW: And don't worry, Space Mountain will collapse from lack of maintenance soon anyway, so now we'll have a spare! TRON!

    So underwhelmed, My expectations were low and Disney dug right under them.

    I couldn't care less about Tron (the IP) but it's hard not to get excited about an actual ADDITION to the parks rather than a replacement.

    This is the bright side - the only actual addition announced at D23, I believe?

    I don't get the hate behind this ride. Sure, it's not Pirates or Mystic Manor, but I mean they didn't have to give us anything. I understand why some people are upset, but c'mon! It's flipping TRON. I watched Legacy this morning and I am PUMPED. and the dig about the small fan base- we may be small, but we are dedicated. Also, there's more of us than you'd think.

    tldr; stop complaining, it's not like they're putting GOTG in Epcot. Oh wait...

    Sorta ok.

    It's nice to have a new coaster at WDW.

    Yet, Tomorrowland continues its slide towards visual and thematic incohesiveness as the powers that be think theme park design is 'plop down random IP rides anywhere opportune'.

    I like Tron, even got caught up in the hype of the sequel but this isn't immediately all that exciting. I like the idea that it's an addition instead of a replacement (if I'm reading this right) but I guess I'm in a wait and see mode for it.
