Accessing TRON Lightcycle Run at Magic Kingdom

When TRON Lightcycle Run does open at Magic Kingdom, the big question is how will guests be able to ride it?

When Tron opens, it will utilize a virtual queue in place of a standby queue. This has occurred over the past few years with new attractions like Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, Remy's Ratatouille Adventure and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. Each day, guests with valid admission and a Magic Kingdom park reservation will be able to attempt to join the virtual queue for Tron.

TRON will also be offered as an individual Lightning Lane selection, available for day-of purchase via Disney Genie+.

Rode it in Shanghai Disney and for people who worry about riding a motorcycle fast, they secure you in the seat very well.
