Two popular attractions at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom will close within the next few months, as the park works on building its new Tron-themed roller coaster.
The Tron coaster is expected to be a clone of the Tron Lightcycle Power Run that opened to rave reviews with Shanghai Disneyland in 2016. The Florida installation is going in next to Space Mountain in the Magic KIngdom's Tomorrowland, which will disrupt the operations of two rides in that area during construction.
The Walt Disney World Railroad will close first, "pausing" its Grand Circle Tours of the park and parking a train in the Main Street station, starting in December. There's no work yet from Disney on how long the trains will be parked. Disneyland recently parked its Railroad attraction for a year while it rerouted the train track around the Rivers of America to accommodate the construction of that park's Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge land, which opens next summer.
The Tomorrowland Speedway also will close for an as-yet-unannounced amount of time next year to reroute that ride's track to clear space for the Tron coaster construction. Disney says that the Speedway will reopen by summer 2019, however.Tweet
