The Tomorrowland Speedway is an extremely popular attraction in Magic Kingdom Park within Walt Disney World.  As the name would indicate, it is located within the Tomorrowland area!  The attraction will be closing for a period of 5 months at the beginning of 2019 in order for work to occur re-route the track for the attraction. The track has to be moved in order to make room for the expected area where the TRON attraction will take over.  The closure is currently expected to begin on January 2nd, 2019 and remain closed through May 17th, 2019.  Right now the attraction is set to re-open to guests on May 18th, 2019.  The only change to the attraction is said to be the new track and that the attraction will re-open under the same name as before.


We previously announced that Walt Disney World would be opening a TRON themed coaster attraction at Magic Kingdom Park.  The TRON attraction is currently an extremely popular attraction within Shanghai Disneyland, so we are very excited to see this new attraction added to Walt Disney World.  TRON is expected to open in time for the 50th anniversary celebration for the opening of Walt Disney World.

Here is a look at the ride in Shanghai Disneyland:

Who will be sad to see Tomorrowland Speedway closed for 5 months?


About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
