Disney is known for its immersive rides and attractions—from the renowned Cinderella Castle and the spooky Haunted Mansion in Magic Kingdom Park to Kali River Rapids in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park and the Tower of Terror in Disney’s Hollywood Studios Theme Park. Disney Imagineers from Walt Disney Imagineering are constantly working to keep bringing fans innovative new experiences through which to enjoy the Disney magic and have the ultimate Disney vacation.

But along with this, there are also teams who spend a lot of time and energy on marketing these rides to let Disney fans know and create undeniable anticipation and excitement when rides debut. The Walt Disney Company is often working on campaigns to bring new information and news to Disney fans.

On June 6, Disney released a new trailer for TRON Lightcycle/Run at Magic Kingdom, which looks fabulous! Journalist Scott Gustin took to Twitter to share the video with fans. As he explained, we had a sneak preview of the trailer last month, and now we got the full 90-second trailer.

Opening with the grid and then shifting to a scene of Cinderella Castle bathed in TRON colors before moving onto the ride itself, the trailer is unbelievable.  Check it out:

Disney Park fans loved the trailer, exclaiming about how fantastic Cinderella Castle looked all “rezzed up.”

However, some fans took a moment to have a little fun, poking fun at the length of the trailer compared to the ride. Twitter user and Disney fan Christian commented, “I feel like this is longer than the fast parts of the ride.”

It was a sentiment that was echoed by others as well.

Disney Park fan Sam Becker agreed:

While it’s certainly an amusing take, it also recalls how long fans had to wait to ride TRON: Lightcycle/Run for the first time. The ride opened to the general public on April 4 of this year, and it was a long time waiting to get to that point. Between the pandemic and construction delays caused by the same, fans were on the edge of their seats waiting for TRON to debut since Disney announced it at the D23 Expo in 2017.
