Park Pass UPDATE for TRON Opening Day in Disney World

If you’ve been keeping up with Disney World news, you’ll know that April 4th, 2023, is a big day for Magic Kingdom.

Get ready to enter the Grid!

That’s the day the park’s newest ride, TRON Lightcycle / Run will officially open! This is an exciting new type of attraction for Disney World that combines a roller coaster ride with motorcycle-style seating and eye-catching light displays. If you can’t wait to ride TRON, there’s a Park Pass UPDATE that you need to know about. 

Currently, the attraction is in previews, where select groups like Cast Members and Annual Passholders can register to ride TRON ahead of time. Even with a few chances for individuals to check out the attraction before it opens, we are still anticipating Magic Kingdom to be busier than usual on this ride’s official opening day. Park Pass Reservations are still required to enter the park, (although by the time TRON opens Annual Passholders won’t need a reservation to enter the parks after 2PM) so there is a high probability that Magic Kingdom could book up for the day.

Early in January, only 24 hours after Disney announced TRON’s opening date, Magic Kingdom Park Pass Reservations for Annual Passholders were completely booked for April 4th. Passholders who were unable to snag a reservation would have to pay for a separate ticket or hotel room to try and make a reservation as a regular guest or hope that the park isn’t too full to allow for Park Hopping later in the day. Of course, Disney did open up registration for Annual Passholders to preview TRON Lightcycle / Run, but many guests reported difficulties with the system and were unable to secure a spot.

Annual Passholders who haven’t received a preview spot or Park Pass Reservation for TRON’s opening day may believe they’re out of luck, but we have some good news! We noticed on the Incredi Pass calendar that Magic Kingdom was showing availability for park passes at Magic Kingdom on April 4th. Other dates leading up to the date were booked, but earlier today TRON’s opening day was still available.

This may have been Disney’s doing to appease guests after the messy preview registration, although it is possible that other Passholders canceled their reservations after snagging a preview spot. Either way, if you’re still hoping to visit TRON on its official opening day you may still be able to book your park pass reservation at Magic Kingdom after all!


As of writing, Park Passes for Magic Kingdom on April 4th are still sold out for Passholders with a Sorcerer Pass, and Pirate and Pixie Dust Passes are blocked out on that date. There are Magic Kingdom Park Passes available on April 4th for guests with regular theme park tickets.
