Riders on TRON at Night

    Lauren from MI Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    I have half a day at Magic Kingdom coming up in August. Could I login to buy a lightening lane at 7am for let's say an 8pm Tron time? Or is the lightening lane time just random? Do I need genie + to buy lightening lane as well?

    Enter the Grid with me, Lauren, and I'll help you secure a spot on Team Blue for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort visit! Here at planDisney, we are all about thrill attractions, and TRON Lightcycle / Run is one of my favorites. Your visit is coming soon, so let's speed across a world with no horizon to see how you can experience this ride!

    First, be sure you have a valid Theme Park Ticket and a Theme Park Reservation for Magic Kingdom Park on the day of your visit. On the morning of your visit, you will open the My Disney Experience Mobile App and select Tip Board. Scroll until you see the attraction and choose the option to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane for Tron Lightcycle / Run. With Individual Lightning Lanes, you can select from available times, and remember that prices and procedures can change. My tip would be to explore the app a few days before to see pricing and how quickly the Individual Lightning Lane option fills up. 

    Like in the Grid, speed is essential to success, so log in and be ready to purchase that Individual Lightning Lane the second you're eligible. If you're staying at a select Disney Resort Hotel, you can purchase at 7:00 AM. Otherwise, you would purchase at the listed opening time for Magic Kingdom Park. Be ready with your credit card information; you'll be flying like the wind before you can say digitization!

    Lauren, there is no need to purchase Genie+ Service since this attraction is not one of the attractions it applies to. But Genie+ Service might still be something to consider if you plan to experience as many attractions as possible in that half day. This service assigns times to return to Lightning Lane entrances at many attractions, which differs from purchasing an Individual Lightning Lane. You can check out how Genie+ Service works to see if it's right for you.

    Finally, there is a virtual queue for TRON Lightcycle / Run, but this option will assign you a boarding group with no definite return time. Here's my advice if you are set on riding this experience: Purchase the Individual Lightning Lane as early as you can, and then quickly try to join the virtual queue, which is free. If you are assigned a later boarding group, it might work out that you can ride twice. Take that, Team Red! 

    Lauren, I hope you have a thrilling time on your upcoming visit, and please stop by planDisney with any questions. Unlike in the Grid, where they say End of Line, we're always here to help!

    Magic awaits,
