Fans have been waiting for this thrilling roller coaster to come to Tomorrowland since its initial announcement during 2017’s D23 conference. Five years later, fans are wondering if they’ll ever see this revolutionary ride in Walt Disney World Resort.

However, some rumors have been floating around, telling of an opening date way more specific than “Spring 2023.”

There have been unconfirmed reports and sources claiming that TRON Lightcycle Run will be holding preview runs in March 2023.

Allegedly, these previews will be open to Magic Kingdom Cast Members, members of the exclusive Club 33, Annual Passholders, and Disney Vacation Club Members. There are also rumors of this preview being marketed as a D23 event as well.

Presumably, after a month of these previews, the ride will then supposedly open to the general public in April 2023.
