More likely, the current Tron placement is a result of where the young lady's support garment fell across the MK model.This ride is so absurdly badly placed that my working theory is that a Disney VP was having an office affair with a subordinate and, when their spouse walked in on them, they panicked, claimed to be working late on a new ride, and as proof grabbed the miniature Tron building from the HKDL model and shoved it into the WDW model at random. Then they had to build it or face an expensive divorce.
Eh it's just a Little Mermaid VHS momentMore likely, the current Tron placement is a result of where the young lady's support garment fell across the MK model.
Speaking of which, has anybody tried to calculate the canopy's size? I can't be the only person in the world to notice such a resemblance...
Possibly related to the coaster, since it was shot near Disney World? Flynn's Arcade being somewhat central to both Tron movies. Really randomly stumbled across this on Instagram.
Yeah, I've watched a full ride through of the one in Shanghai. More just that it's interesting they're doing promo work, I guess.
So are we down to just installing track from the tunnel to the back of SM? If so, what is stopping the train from opening up in a few weeks?
Indeed. I think they'd at least want all work on the Storybook Circus path, the path connecting TRON to Light & Power, and all related landscaping complete before they run the train again. Basically, everything from the tracks to the Speedway. I can't imagine they'd want to sacrifice the ability to traverse the area where the tracks will go day or night, plus the views rolling through that dust bowl would be abysmal.My pure speculation is they dont want construction access majorly impeded and/or operational/safety issues with constant crossing. I think we at least need to see the area west of the tracks, but probably the entire outside, buttoned up before they lay track outside the tunnel.
can it be done - yes, but theres probably a whole slew of new challenges it brings that are not “necessary”. So the best I hope for is mostly completed track and just needing to fill the gaps and test when it’s time to do so, but I think it’s more than a few weeks.
Hopefully I’m wrong and around the clock crews have the train going in a month!
Well, outdoor construction. It could open while they complete finishing touches on the interior (maybe 2 months before TRON if they want). But they definitely need to finish all of the outdoor walkways. I’d guess September, at the earliest, for the WDWRR. But 10/1 has obvious appeal.Agree with above.
I just don't think they can operate the train until Tron construction is complete. Too many safety issues.

I would love to see this! However- so many guests would have front seat views of what might end up being an OSHA violation- report it- and have a chance to use litigious means to hold the mouse over a barrel… purely speculation on my part, of course- I claim no real knowledge.So are we down to just installing track from the tunnel to the back of SM?
