Or a Disney+ series.Maybe we will get Tron 3 before this opens. One can hope, right?
Yeah, but those two films are more deeply seated and more widely known than Tron.Little Mermaid and 7DMT were in 2012 and 2014.
The Haunted Mansion was the first attraction completed at the still under construction Magic Kingdom. TRON Lightcycle Run isn’t the first iteration nor was it delayed for radical plussing/reworking to utilize new technologies like The Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean.On one hand our family might not go to WDW in the summer of 2022 if Tron doesn't open at least a month before we go, so put me in the infantile adult freaking out because a ride won't be open category. WAAAAH! This is the downside of Disney bringing out the kid in me.
But my inner old man forgives Disney recalling that Disneyland broke ground on the Haunted Mansion in 1961, but didn't open it till 1969.
(Sorry if the above link didn't work.)On August 9, 1969, the doors of the Haunted Mansion first creaked opened to ghoulish ghosts (and guests) looking for an unlivable home. Today, all foolish mortals are able to visit this “spirited” attraction in New Orleans Square at Disneyland park.disneyparks.disney.go.com
Of course, Walt died in 1966
and before that he was distracted by creating Walt Disney World, Mary Poppins & the World's Fair of 1964 where he created several attractions. Pretty good excuses.
The sooner Disney opens Tron, the sooner they start making a lot more money, so they should've opened it before 2022. In my nearly worthless opinion, Disney has been disappointing many of its fans since the previously amazing Michael Eisner entered his second decade as CEO after his fellow overpaid colleague Frank Wells died & the even more avaricious Paul Pressler rose in the company.
(In fairness to Michael Eisner, I'll note that he has been a very generous philanthropist since leaving Disney.)
Prediction: Disney will charge $20 to $25 per guest for those wishing to skip most of the line for this 2-minute-long, cloned coaster.
