Ahead of TRON Lightcycle / Run’s opening to the public on April 4th, 2023, Disney Cast Members, Disney Vacation Club members, and Annual Passholders will be invited to preview Magic Kingdom’s newest attraction. Currently, Cast Member previews are happening, with many great insights about the ride experience and interesting points being made about the unique ride vehicle. DVC Shop’s own Emily Murray was among the lucky few to preview the attraction alongside a Cast Member, and just shared her first look at Magic Kingdom’s TRON attraction.
Earlier today, Disney announced that the registration for Annual Passholders to preview TRON Lightcycle / Run will being on February 16th, 2023 by sending emails, and using push notifications in the My Disney Experience app to inform passholders. There are a few interesting changes to how these previews will be working from some of the past previews that have been offered to Annual Passholders, so let’s take a look at a few of the finer points covered in their notification.
Restrictions For Annual Passholder Previews
When the registration opens later this month on the 16th, Annual Passholders can begin registering for themselves and up to 5 other guests to preview the attraction. What’s interesting in this announcement notification, is that it stipulates that the 5 guests that can accompy the person registering are required to have the following attributes:
