  • Predict when WDW's TRON coaster will open.

    So Disney is short on cash and will not or cannot prioritize completing an attraction, even though it will attract millions of guests & bring in a lot of cash the moment it opens.

    This is not the thread to debate if Disney cheaped out by not improving the one flaw of this ride that disappoints some riders in Shanghai. (It's only 2 minutes long.)
    Nor is this the place to debate if the original film (58 Metacritic score) and its sequel (49 on Metacritic) are over-rated.

    No, this is where you guesstimate when it'll open. Maybe check out updated construction photos if you think Disney will open this in January of 2021. They still appear to have a lot of work to do.

    I'm changing this post because it became outdated.

    WOW, Darth Scottie's post below (2 posts down) is depressing! Like Darth, I hope 2022 is incorrect. If it's true, I wish Universal or the Oriental Land Co. would buy Walt Disney World. They seem to know more about Walt Disney the risk taker obsessed with creating things that are outstanding & original. If Tron opens in or before early June of 2021, I'll apologize for this post if I remember.

    Imagine any of Disney's leaders of the last 25 years mortgaging their home or vacation home & altering their personal insurance to help make an animated film (like Show White) or a park (Disneyland) a reality.

            Maybe our Ameri-Tron coaster will get more enthusiastic attention once the Ratatouille attraction opens at EPCOT.

            Here's a new vlog--with a Tron update starting at 7:23. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zPrfJcw9TsM

              I think closer to Oct 2021. What's left is the canopy and the walkways and landscaping for the most part.

                There are multiple reports today on the always reliable internet (HA!) that the Tron Coaster will not be completed by the start of the 50th celebration in Oct. of 2021.

                UPDATING THIS ON OCT. 28: so the "word on the street" news from last week might mean that Darth Scottie was right.
                Note to self: pay attention to Darth Scottie's future predictions.

                  Yes, quoting myself, because the Magic Kingdom Tron coaster delay has inspired me to put off our WDW trip till 2022.
                  A little sad cancelling the 2021 Universal & WDW reservations, but the 50th will be in full swing in 2022, hopefully, and things should be safer.
                  We'll probably visit Disneyland in 2021. It's only 31.5 miles away.

                    This was article linked below was pretty typical of the delayed Tron Coaster news that came out last month ago (October).

                    https:///2020/10/tron-lightcycle-run...h-anniversary/

                    I think this is one of the new attractions people are most looking forward to, and that Bob is making a mistake in not finishing this as quickly as can safely be done. Even if the parks' capacity is still limited by Covid19 in the summer of 2021, increased demand of potential park goers could increase the spending of guests that do come to ride it.

                    Also, it now looks like these two new vaccines MIGHT get most Americans vaccinated before the summer, so Walt Disney World might still be able to go big -- or at least bigger -- in the summer of 2021. (I hope the anti-vaccers don't screw this up.)
