Tron launch testing shared by WDI today.

I’ve seen chatter that this is only the first part of the ride - there’s more when you enter the building.

I should hope so.

Just preempting the inevitable question that I saw asked many times on Twitter. :joy: The video is only 30 seconds long.

When are we supposed to start pre-emptively hating on it?

If you look online at other places, that’s been going on for several years already.

Sigh.

Always late to the party.

Not exactly hating on it…but I do wish they made the entire ride experience longer. Or rather, that the ride capacity was higher. Based on ride capacity on the Shanghai version, we can expect long waits for this ride. Had they made the entire ride experience longer, they could have increased ride capacity as well.

I am still excited to ride it, however!

How can people hate the cool empty industrial warehouse theming inside the attraction?:wink:

I guess, because I think rides like Rise of the Resistance are aces, and don’t pound my sippy cup on my high chair tray because Disney hasn’t offered us an omnimover ride populated by slowly nodding animatronics dressed in their double-knit Dacron Sunday best, I’m the worst kind of Disney fan.

Yes, he’s a dirtbag deluxe, but I’m put in mind of something the comedian Louis CK said about flying:

‘I had to sit on the runway for 40 minutes.’ Oh my god, really? What happened then, did you fly through the air like a bird, incredibly? Did you soar into the clouds, impossibly? Did you partake in the miracle of human flight and then land softly on giant tires that you couldn’t even conceive how they [redacted] put air in them? You’re sitting in a chair in the sky. You’re like a Greek myth right now.

The tunnel for the train is now enclosed.

And there are suggestions that Disney might be targeting the 51st anniversary of MK.

I’m just keeping fingers and toes crossed for Christmas.

Will that be the beginning of the 100th Anniversary of the Company?

I think Disney was founded 1923. So no, I meant this year!

I thought they were starting early but maybe I misunderstood.

I followed what you meant. They usually do an 18-month celebration for an anniversary and in this case it would make sense to kick off the 100 years a bit early.

Yes, I guess I just think the announcements at D23 will all be “to celebrate 100 years”

Oh I see what @PrincipalTinker meant now.

To be honest I have no idea. But I’m a bit annoyed that the 50th seems to have been reigned back already, if that were even possible. The 50th was supposed to last 18 months and I’d hoped there would still be merchandise and the special events still happening at Christmas.

Having marketed it as such, they should stick by it. But I guess this just shows how used I’ve become to our consumer laws versus your pretty much non existent ones. :worried:

Anyone know how fast Tron will be? Very excited for this ride to get rolling at WDW

You mean mph? I get the sense it’s like 40-45 mph.

Edit: This article says top speeds up to 60 mph.

Thanks - that is fast for Disney standards!
