TRON is a coaster like none other in Tomorrowland at Magic Kingdom. This attraction is so different than other attractions, so be sure to check out everything that you need to know about riding TRON HERE.

Like many new attractions at Walt Dinsey World, a traditional standby line is not available.  Guests have 2 options to enjoy this ride with a FREE virtual queue or pay for an Individual Lighting Lane. Guests have the option to do both to experience this attraction 2 times in a single day.

Ride Vehicle Concerns

Guests of varying sizes and weights may find it difficult or impossible to ride TRON. This was a concern of many when attraction previews were first held for TRON.

Additionally, the style of the ride vehicle (think Flight of Passage but laying more on your stomach) may make it more difficult for those who suffer from chronic pain to ride comfortably. Much of your weight is supported on your lower leg and knees and on your stomach and chest area. You’ll grasp the handlebars and pull them toward you.

New Warning Sign

Since the opening of this attraction, there has been a ride vehicle near the attraction. Now new signage is present in the TRON Lightcycle Run Plaza.

This new warning states, “The seating and restraints on this attraction may prohibit Guests of certain body shapes or sizes from riding. Please try the seat to confirm your ability to ride. See a Cast Member for assistance.”

After trying out these test vehicles, you can choose to ride in a more traditional coaster-style ride vehicle. Be sure to let a Cast Member know if you prefer to ride in these modified vehicles.

The back car provides traditional seating with a lap bar. Approximately 50% of the trains have these modified vehicles in the back, so you may have to wait several loads to get on one.

This new signage states, “The seating and restraints on this attraction may prohibit Guests of certain body shapes or sizes from riding”

Yes I agree that they should have known. I do not think they did the same for flight of avatar. They probably for those reasons with out knowing have lost customers. Or with customers really not wanting to say why. As of why they decided not to come. Hindsight people who came to visit the parks thinking of the parks to go to. For trone and flight of avatar. And flight the park with flight of passage. I do not think they really think about how common it is some people to have larger legs then most for weight and higth. Or larger then most people.

My adult daughter and I rode this ride a few weeks ago. We had a blast and it wasn't uncomfortable for either one of us. We'd do it again in a heartbeat!

My daughter and I rode Tron in August 2023 using regular seating. We’re both petite body types but we were uncomfortable in the secureness of the ride. We waited about 5-10 minutes but it was worth it for our purposes

My husband is tall but not fat and he did not enjoy the leaning over and not really seeing things on the cycles. I have some knee and ankle problems so I chose the seat in back. Each time we rode it was a very short wait for the back seats. They may consider offering more of those type as they expand to regular queues in the future. I love the ride!

My husband and I rode twice in June. He is slightly large, but he's shorter and one of his calves is slightly larger due to lymphedema. Each time he couldn't get the leg restraint to clamp him in, he was so embarrassed. We had to wait in the back with a bunch of other people that had issues with the restraints also to ride the regular car. You would think Disney would have learned after Flight of Passage, where he's had the same issue with the leg restraint not fitting him. Like he says, in other amusement parks there's been issues with his size and riding certain rides, but with Disney he's always been able to ride everything, until Flight of Passage (which he's been able to ride a couple times after the cast member figured out how to clamp him in) and now Tron. Very upsetting.
