It makes sense why the delay between business hits and wanting to let the 50th and Rat be enough for a rebound year, but it does not change the fact that the Tron sect of fandom and that much general expectation of the public who go to high caliber theme parks are going to be dissapoonted in the wait by the time opening actually comes.

Tron WILL NOT open fall of 2021. The exterior will be completed to clean up the area (still tons of work to be done). December will end the construction on this project and it will be suspended until October 2021. The outdoor canopies will continue to go up during the winter and into 2021. Depending on how the economy and attendance goes construction will pick back up fall of 2021. Plan on Spring/Summer 2022 for an opening.
A ride that should've been finished before the shutdown is now looking at another year and a half? This is just ridiculous and awful.

My understanding is that most of the cuts on FEA had very little to with budget and had a lot to do with the challenges of re-skinning an existing attraction. They were also (unsucessfully) trying to get it ready to open in a very short amount of time. The re-skin and the timeline resulted in cuts.
Yeah so another reason to have just built a new ride in the same space.

Will the work at least get far enough along (on the outside) that they can reopen the train sometime early 2021?

I do not see if they still need to put down the new tracks for the train and any expense they can put off they will. With zero International Travelers able to come and from what it looks like Disneyland may not open until 2021. WDW is going to be in for a world of hurt financially for the rest of 2020, 2021, and well into 2022....
