    The Parks Blog says it'll be open for the 50th in 2021, unlike the Epcot rides which say by the 50th.

    I think Tron is a lot closer to opening than the entire Epcot makeover.

    Looks like this comes with new/widened walkways and a rebuilt portion of the speedway. Not bad.

    I got to say I still don't understand building this in a park that's about to explode with people.

    Good to see the roof looks the same. Man, I can't wait for this!

    So, once this opens, could this lead to a major (and proper) refurbishment of Space Mountain?

    Beyond excited for this ride. Love the Tron movies and seeing footage of the ride in Shanghai made me jealous. Love that it's going to be represented in the U.S. parks.

    Thrilled to see this happening. But not looking forward to the Magic Kingdom becoming even more of a nut house.

    And I don't see how "Minnie Vans" will help MK transportation traffic. So that remains my biggest issue with the resort.

    I think that's their main goal, really.

    As a huge TRON fan, I am overjoyed. The digital frontier awaits...

    I hope so. Space Mountain needs it bad and this will offer up an E-ticket that can run while it's down, making the loss of the ride less stressful on the park. I love the creative use of expansion space they did here too instead of just lazily plopping it down in the parking lot over by buzz.

    Admittedly it will be weird to have two coasters so close to each other at a Disney park though (or even Universal for that matter).

    EDIT: Just realized TRON will almost be a 40 year old franchise by the time this opens. Hopefully by then Tron 3/Reboot will finally get off the ground.

    My concern with this going where it's going is that the park might become slightly lobsided with all the newer attractions over to one side.

    Better than a lift hill.
