As someone who hasn't ridden Guardians but has ridden Tron, it sounds like, from reviews, that Epcot finally has a "knock your socks off" headliner attraction, but I can assure you, Tron won't deliver that when it comes to Magic Kingdom, and that's a shame.
Each park has a modern headliner (from my point of view)
But Magic Kingdom doesn't. I realize Magic Kingdom doesn't need more draws, but I feel that each Disney park around the world needs one showstopper attraction that makes people think "wow, that alone made this whole trip worth it."
- Flight of Passage (Animal Kingdom)
- Rise of the Resistance (Hollywood Studios)
- Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind (Epcot)
Tron is a solid ride, but far from a headliner. Would I take it over, Everest? Probably not.
You’re opinion is fine, but to 95% of Florida guests who will never go to Shanghai, (present company included), the ride looks awesome.Agreed, Tron is meh. It’s a visually stunning building, especially at night with its lighting package. That said, I don’t know if this will be positioned as well as the one at Shanghai.
This is gonna look killer in the MK skyline. Probably gonna be MK's equivalent of the Epcot Points of Light.
I don't think you're going to be able to see it that well. It seems like it's going to be hidden from view from almost everywhere (which is one of the biggest reasons the placement doesn't make much sense).
This is true.. but they just have to go a few miles up i4 and ride Hagrids.. that is the most complete ride experience in Orlando.You’re opinion is fine, but to 95% of Florida guests who will never go to Shanghai, (present company included), the ride looks awesome.
Would they really want to open it just before the Holiday season which will already be very busy and not need an additional draw? I don't know if they would wish to deal with new ride teething problems on top of an already busy period.
It would make more sense to open in February and have some time before spring break to work out any operational kinks.
It will add to the overall atmosphere in Tomorrowland, but yeah views of it from a distance won't be great - even in much of Tomorrowland the People Mover Track will block the view some
The view from onboard the Peoplemover will fairly briefly show the canopy, but it will also show a great big portion of the ugly warehouse. Basically, they added an attraction whose primary selling point is its striking canopy and positioned it so that that visual element can really only be enjoyed from the state-of-the-art, certainly-shouldn't-have-been-ripped-out-decades-ago Speedway.I don't think you'll be able to see it even in Tomorrowland until you're next to or past Astro Orbiters.
Seems like the best view will be from on the Speedway.
It should look great on approach after passing under the PeopleMover just past Space Mtn, but I really hope they do something about the awful view from Barnstormer.

Yo, listen up here's a story
About a little guy
That lives in a blue world
And all day and all night
And everything he sees is just blue
Like him inside and outside
Blue his house
With a blue little window
And a blue corvette
And everything is blue for him
And himself and everybody around
Cause he ain't got nobody to listen to
Da ba dee da ba di...
