Here’s How On-Ride Photos & Videos Will Work on Disney’s Next New Attraction

Several new experiences are in the works for the Magic Kingdom, and the next new attraction to open will be able to capture all of your memories with on-ride photos and video.

We just learned that Encanto (2021) is now part of a beloved Magic Kingdom experience, and work is already underway to transform the attraction formerly known as Splash Mountain into Tiana’s Bayou Adventure. The next attraction to open, however, takes us over to Tomorrowland where Imagineers are putting the finishing touches on TRON Lightcycle / Run.

The Disney Parks Blog recently shared things that Guests will need to know ahead of the opening of TRON Lightcycle / Run in the Magic Kingdom, and included on the list are all of the details for how on-ride photos and video will work at the new attraction.

Like many other Disney World attractions, on-ride photos and videos will be automatically linked to Guests’ My Disney Experience account through MagicBand technology or through Bluetooth-enabled use of the My Disney Experience App.

According to Disney, here’s how getting your photo and video will work:

Use your eligible mobile device, enable Bluetooth® for the My Disney Experience app* before riding, ensure you’ve logged into the My Disney Experience app* sometime earlier that day, and keep your device out of low power mode. Make sure your mobile device boards your Lightcycle with you and is safely stored in the small Lightcycle compartment to use this method.

Not all Disney attractions that include on-ride photos also come with video, so TRON Lightcycle / Run will be joining the likes of Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror in this respect.

TRON Lightcycle / Run will also be the first attraction at Walt Disney World to require Guests to store their belongings in a locker and stow their phones and other small items away in a compartment on the ride vehicle before they set off to “enter the grid.”

Disney’s official description of TRON Lightcycle / Run reads:

Lean forward into the ultimate race of survival! Leave the real world behind and join Team Blue in an epic quest across the Grid—the dark, computerized world with no horizons from TRON. Here, there’s no limit to the excitement.

Climb aboard your very own Lightcycle and take off on a high-speed adventure, racing against the Grid’s most menacing Programs. Surge past your fierce opponents as you attempt to cross through 8 Energy Gates and secure your team’s victory—so you can survive to race another day.

The new attraction officially opens on April 4, 2023. Check back here on Disney Tips for all the latest updates on TRON Lightcycle / Run as we get closer to the ride’s opening date.
