Did some research and it sounds like GotG is projected to be spring 2021 and TRON will open summer 2021. Someone correct me if i am wrong though.
You’re probably right, my brain is tired this morning lol.

Guardians early 2021, Tron early summer 2021.

Interesting... seemed that the two projects were of comparable sizes and opening at comparable times, yet the TRON project seems so much further behind than the GotG attraction. Is the GotG project really than much bigger/more complex than the TRON project, or is this more of an issue of construction crews where certain crews will start at GotG than move to do similar work on the TRON site after their portion has completed at GotG?

Also, the main queue building for GotG was already built since they are just re-purposing the UoE building. I imagine that saved 2-4 months worth of construction time right there that the TRON project was unable to do.

Disney does not act as their own general contractor. There is no moving crews back and forth. Each project is a separate job and if multiple projects share a contractor then that is an internal employee scheduling issue, not a Disney scheduling issue. Even with owner completed work, Disney has separate project teams because Walt Disney Imagineering is much larger than a handful of people.

Still don't get why it takes 3+ years to build a clone of a ride that they've already built.
Because that 3 years includes a year of design.
