Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts, announced at D23 this weekend that a Tron-themed attraction will be coming to Magic Kingdom‘s Tomorrowland.
Set to open during Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary in 2021, the TRON Lightcycle Power Run is a coaster-style attraction where riders board a train of two-wheeled Lightcycles, similar to the cycle game from the original movie.
The D23 news is flying fast and furious, and word comes that a new space-themed restaurant will be coming to Epcot.
It will be located adjacent to the park’s Mission: SPACE attraction, according to Disney. Perhaps it will occupy the space where the Wonders of Life building currently sits mostly unused, but that wasn’t clarified during the D23 reveal by Walt Disney Imagineer Tom Fitzgerald.
It’s the heart of summer here in Central Florida, but over at Disney Springs, it’s Christmas in July starting today until the end of the month.
Until July 30, there will be special holiday-themed treats, merchandise and entertainment offerings throughout Disney Springs.
D23, the big Disney-produced fan convention, has just kicked off with a bang this weekend with the reveal of a model of the upcoming Star Wars-themed lands at Walt Disney World and Disneyland.
Courtesy of Lucasfilm and Disney, we have these first images of that model for you to enjoy:
