NEWS: TRON Lightcycle / Run Is Using a Standby Line for the FIRST Time in Magic Kingdom

By admin Jan 12, 2024

Disney After Hours events are BACK! This time, we’re visiting Magic Kingdom AFTER dark and experiencing low wait times, complimentary snacks, and TWO TIMES the normally scheduled fireworks. Talk about an eventful night!

After Hours

During Magic Kingdom’s three-hour long After Hours event, we’re visiting TONS of attractions and meeting some characters along the way. But one of the things we’re SUPER excited about is Disney’s BIG change. During the After Hours event, you can ride TRON Lightcycle / Run WITHOUT a virtual queue or Lightning Lane (paid FastPass to skip the line). That’s right — we’re using the standby line at TRON for the FIRST TIME!

TRON Lightcycle / Run is the NEWEST roller coaster in Disney World — and it is POPULAR. The virtual queue can fill up quickly for this attraction on a normal day. But this isn’t a normal day, people!

TRON Lightcycle / Run

Ever since TRON first opened in 2023, the ride has operated exclusively with a virtual queue (and Individual Lightning Lane) that you can join via the My Disney Experience app. Even during Magic Kingdom’s other specially ticketed events, like Mickey’s Not-So-Scary-Halloween Party, the ride operated with a virtual queue system.

But now, TRON is using a standby queue during Disney After Hours events! The standby line opens at 10PM (the same time the event officially begins).





Of course, we HAD to go and check out the line during the first Magic Kingdom After Hours event. Right when the queue opened around 10PM, the line had already reached 45 minutes. The line stretched all the way down the ramp.

Look — it’s a real standby line!

Later in the evening, the line went down to a 30-minute wait. Keep your eyes on My Disney Experience throughout the night so you can take advantage of those LOW waits!


Magic Kingdom After Hours kicked off on January 11th, Hollywood Studios After Hours started on January 10th, and EPCOT After Hours start on February 2nd. For more Disney news, follow DFB.
