News Tron coaster coming to the Magic Kingdom

I disagree it's ill fitting and in a poor plot. (But it's not what the MK "needed" right now, IMHO, and agree it's a cheap option instead of developing something new)

I can't speak to the ride itself until I experience it (I assume you've been on it?). How long do you folks want coasters to be?? They aren't going to be 5-10 minute experiences.
A ride time of a minute-ish isn’t cool for a wait that will hover at two hours for years.

Yep, I’ve been on it.

it brakes at every single dive...every dip has a pre-brake and that is what everyone noted when we went... Other friends that have been there said the same thing... Would be great if they were not breaking the train before each dip on the inside section....
Yep. Now add hundreds of pounds more per train (which is reality).... those brakes will hit even harder.

What is going on here? Disney World is getting an amazing attraction from Shanghai Disneyland and everyone has a complaint. First, the ride exterior is beautiful at night, the ride and vehicle are amazing, the queue is beautiful and the length is acceptable - I never went on it and complained about anything people are making up here. I rode it 4 times in the daytime and night. Let’s get up in arms over real things like the crappy buzz light year ride or the lame stitch encounter. Go!

TRON wouldn’t have so much riding on it if it wasn’t the only ride to open in Magic Kingdom for 7 years. Or if it wasn’t the first E-Ticket ride in almost 20. Or if it wasn’t going in the most visited theme park in world.

Or if it wasn’t being used as the singular solution for the last three issues.

Well, 5 years anyway. 7DMT opened in May 2014. Still no excuse, though.

Some people have different standards.

I think it's a great ride and can't wait for it, but I think it should have went in Epcot. It fits the left section more than Guardians and vice versa for Guardians.

Some people’s standard is to be consistently bitter and grumpy. To each their own. 🤷‍♂️
Honestly, I think most of the complaints would be lessened if this weren't the only attraction MK is getting in the near future. If the theater was coming and another ride or two, Tron would be a reasonable addition. But as is, it's not addressing the capacity issue the park has.

I’d agree if this wasn’t tied into expansion across the entire resort. MK has the least problems. Hopefully they can add even more to MK after this.

That's true, Tomorrowland is the only land that needs attractions in MK. Park wise Hollywood and Epcot are still ontop of the list for Constructionville.

Its not just failing to address intentionally created capacity issues, but it’s also part of the larger trend of just dropping in attractions without thought for story or design. It was dropped in because it was known and would be marginally cheaper and faster than something actually designed for the park.

MK has age problems. The entire park (with NFL as an exception) has had very few show updates for attractions. See how buzz, space, Peter Pan, pirates, and etc. have aged compared to their national/international counterparts. They (at mk) tend to get less love, with few upgrades of technology or show throughout the years. The last real "show" upgrade I can think of at MK is the space mountain queue in what, 2010? Outside of the Pirates side-grade for the redhead.

Yep. An over-simplified explanation of TDO's general philiosophy - Can't have attractions down for Johnny and Susie's once-in-a-lifetime vacation, unless it's dangerous to operate, because refurbs cost money.

Oh I totally agree, but that is a different beast to needing more attractions (which it does)... But with upgraded fireworks, a newer parade, New Fantasyland, and now Tron... MK has gotten far more love then the other parks, up until Pandora and now Star Wars. I'm just saying, they are clearly working on a resort wide expansion for the 50th, and then I assume they'll start looking at park by park again.
