2 Magic Kingdom Attractions Temporarily Closing For Tron Construction
Two Magic Kingdom rides will temporarily close as Disney works to complete its new Tron attraction in time for its 50th anniversary in 2021.
The Walt Disney World Railroad will temporarily take up residence at the Main Street Station starting in December 2018, pausing its grand-circle tours of Magic Kingdom Park. During this time, guests will be able to get an up-close look at the railroad and take advantage of one-of-a-kind photo opportunities, Disney officials said in a blog post.
The Tomorrowland Speedway will close for a portion of 2019, as the attraction’s track is adjusted. It will reopen in the summer of 2019.
The Tron attraction will occupy an entirely new area next to the land’s Space Mountain.
A new Tron-themed billboard at Magic Kingdom Park is now visible from Storybook Circus.
