Tomorrowland Speedway will temporarily close next year as Disney leaders work on construction of the all-new TRON coaster coming to Magic Kingdom.
The attraction, which was announced at last year's D23 Expo, will occupy a new area in Tomorrowland right next to Space Mountain. Disney leaders said Tomorrowland Speedway will reopen in its current form next summer.
TRON Lightcyle Power Run first debuted at Shanghai Disneyland and is a fan favorite in the park. The Walt Disney World Resort version will open in time for the resort's 50th anniversary in 2021, according to Disney leaders.
As TRON construction happens, another Magic Kingdom attraction will also be closed down. According to Disney, the Walt Disney World Railroad will take up residence at the Main Street Station beginning in December.
While it's sad that won't be looping the park, Disney leaders said that means one-of-a-kind photo opportunities are available.
They haven't said when the railroad will reopen.
