We’re giddy over the new experience set to debut at Walt Disney World Resort’s Magic Kingdom on April 4—TRON Lightcycle / Run. The ride— set to be one of the fastest coasters at any Disney theme park in the world—“transports” guests into the Grid for a Lightcycle race. It’s Team Blue against the Grid’s menacing Programs, Team Orange. The goal is to be the first to race through eight Energy Gates and secure victory.
The story of TRON Lightcycle / Run picks up after “TRON: Legacy” where Kevin’s son, Sam Flynn, has opened a second gateway into a digital realm called the Grid. The first of these portals he created is found at Shanghai Disneyland with the original TRON Lightcycle Power Run.
Before the attraction officially opens, cast members will be the first to enter the Grid during special previews. Preview opportunities are coming for guests too, including Annual Passholders and eligible Disney Vacation Club Members.
Magic Kingdom Welcomes Back Happily Ever After Nighttime Spectacular
Nighttime spectacular “Happily Ever After” returns to Magic Kingdom Park on April 3, featuring all‑new projections down Main Street, U.S.A. “Disney Enchantment” will be offered through April 2. Additionally, there’s an all‑new nighttime spectacular planned for EPCOT later this year. Before the new show launches, “EPCOT Forever” will return as an interim show over the skies of World Showcase Lagoon starting April 3.
Similar to how it appeared in 2021, “EPCOT Forever” is the perfect offering while the Entertainment team preps the Lagoon, including a phased removal of fireworks platforms following the final “Harmonious” performance on April 2. A limited‑time spectacle of lasers, lighting, special effects, and fireworks, “EPCOT Forever” returns with a collection of songs that offer both a trip down memory lane and a look toward the future.
