The high-speed futuristic thrill ride known as TRON: Lightcycle / Run has been a long time coming, so Disney World enthusiasts have been clinging to any scraps of news about the ride from sources like the Disney Parks Blog.
As the roller coaster opening date finally approaches, news has been coming more and more consistently — but this special surprise from Disney might just take the cake as far as TRON news goes!
The Disney Parks Twitter account has just shared a special bonus opportunity (via the Tweet shown below) for Disney World Guests that will give them the chance to try out the ride before its opening date!
“ATTENTION USERS,” the Tweet says. “We have a surprise transmission from the Grid. Between 3.20 – 4.2, Guests may have the early opportunity to experience TRON Lightcycle / Run presented by @Enterprise during a limited soft open via virtual queue or purchase of individual Lightning Lane entry.”
3.20 and 4.2 obviously means March 20 and April 2, so between March 20 and April 2, Walt Disney World Resort Guests just might get to have their own chance to ride TRON: Lightcycle / Run as part of its “soft open”!

Initial reviews of the Tomorrowland ride in the Magic Kingdom have been very positive, with one Disney Fanatic writer confirming that TRON: Lightcycle / Run is “worth the wait” after testing the ride during the Annual Passholder Preview.
We have already seen clear evidence that Walt Disney World Resort is going all in on TRON themes in Tomorrowland to match the futuristic new ride, with a new eatery called Energy Bytes coming onto the scene.
Since the initial reviews are so positive, and the Magic Kingdom clearly thinks that it is betting on a winner with TRON: Lightcycle / Run, then any Disney World Resort Guests who are heading to the Magic Kingdom between March 20 and April 2 might want to make the Walt Disney Imagineering ride’s virtual queue and Individual Lightning Lane a priority for a chance to try the ride before it’s officially open to everyone!
Are you a Disney Guest who will be hoping for this opportunity in the Disney theme park?
