Official Guide To Navigating The Grid At TRON Lifecycle Run!

Are you visiting Magic Kingdom soon? If you are, you need to check out TRON Lifecycle Run! The newest attraction in the park that everyone is talking about.

It’s located in Tomorrowland and is the home of Sam Flynn’s second gateway into the Grid. You might be thinking, second? Yes, the first one is actually located in Shanghai Disneyland! So once you are in the attraction, you will get digitized and taken to the Grid to join Team Blue to race one of the Grid’s other programs, traveling on your own Lightcycle, where you will race against your opponents in an attempt to successfully navigate through 8 energy gates and claim your victory.

Now let’s get to the guide. First thing you need to know is that there is no standby queue for TRON, so you have to use a virtual queue or purchase an individual lightning lane entry.

To access the virtual queue you need to have a valid theme park ticket and park reservation for Magic Kingdom. You can try to join the queue at 7am and if you are unable to join that one, you can try again at 1pm, just remember that to enter the after queue you have to be within Magic Kingdom Park.

Once you join the queue, you will be assigned a boarding group, once your group is called, you will receive an invitation from MyDisneyExperience and will have an hour window to arrive to the attraction.

Now if you are going with the Lightning Lane Entry option, you can choose a one hour window to enter the attraction.


Congratulations! Now you are walking underneath the canopy and entering the Grid, make sure to play close attention to the print on the Grid, the Digital Frontier where you will find yourself in a computerized world with beautiful blues and blacks, pretty cool.

Before you enter the attraction there are test vehicles to determine if you are comfortable riding a lightcycle. It’s also important to remember that in order to experience TRON, you must be at least 48inches tall.

There is also an alternate seating option available for guests who prefer to ride a standard coaster vehicle with a lap bar. So just ask the Cast Members to accommodate you.


Once you enter the world of the Grid you will need to store away anything bigger than a wallet or a cellphone. Using the lockers is very simple, just look for the one that light up blue in the section the Cast Member tells you to, tap your magicband or park ticket and open the locker. If you don’t have any of those, a Cast Member will help you by issuing a card for the attraction.

Once you exit, you can pick up your things by taping your MagicBand on your locker to open it again, if you forget which one is yours, just tap your MagicBand in the screens around to find out which locker is yours.


Now is time to get into your vehicle! Step into your seat and place your knees all the way forward and then while leaning forward, pull the handlebar towards you as close as it can go. The back restrain will gently rest against you so that you are secure as you enter the Grid.


Now that your journey is over, have fun checking out the merchandise available at the exit of the attraction and maybe pick a souvenir to remember your fun time at the Grid!

We hope this guide was helpful and you have an amazing time!
