New aerial photos show construction on the TRON coaster at Magic Kingdom

New aerial photos over the Magic Kingdom show that the construction site for the TRON coaster is starting to come to life. After what seemed like months of very little progress, there appears to be new concrete walls in place.

The photos, courtesy of @bioreconstruct, show the extremely early stages of construction on the upcoming attraction. They also show just how closely TRON will sit to Space Mountain, and why the Tomorrowland Speedway needs to close for five months to make room for the new coaster.

The yellow arrow in the photo below highlights the temporary exit for Space Mountain that takes guests around the side of the building.

Take note that the current walk from the exit of Space Mountain is a long one.

As for TRON, the concrete walls appear to be in place in preparation of the main construction, rather than being apart of the construction for the building itself. The site has already been cleared and leveled, meaning we’re probably not too far away from seeing work moving forward on the foundation.

The TRON coaster is expected to be open by 2021 in time for Disney World’s 50th anniversary.
