After Missing Multiple Re-Opening Dates, This Tomorrowland Gift Shop Is Now Indefinitely “Closed For Refurbishment”

Magic Kingdom is home to beloved rides that are relaxed and thrilling alike. From Pirates of the Caribbean and the Haunted Mansion, which take Guests on immersive, slow-moving journeys, to Space Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad that whisk Guests away, Magic Kingdom has it all.

Although Guests still adore Space Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, one upcoming roller coaster may take the cake as the most thrilling Magic Kingdom attraction once it debuts. However, years after construction began, TRON Lightcycle Run is still being built.

As a result, the classic attraction, the Walt Disney World Railroad, has also been closed for years. Not only that, but Space Mountain’s gift shop and exit, Tomorrowland Light & Power Co., has also been closed due to TRON Lightcycle Run’s ongoing construction.

Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. was scheduled to re-open on November 6, 2022, but was delayed until December 11, 2022. Now, it seems that the re-opening date has been postponed yet again. This time, however, there is no definite re-opening date.

Walt Disney World Resort’s official website confirms that the Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. gift shop will remain “Temporarily Unavailable” and “Closed for Refurbishment” into the new year.

TRON Lightcycle Run is scheduled to open in Spring 2023, and this gift shop will serve as the exit for both the upcoming coaster and Space Mountain.

So why hasn’t this Tomorrowland gift shop re-opened on schedule? Why have the opening dates continuously been pushed back? Will TRON Lightcycle Run be delayed again as well? We can’t say.
