You can hear bits of the railroad’s new narration, including audio referencing the new coaster. Disney has announced that a new conductor character will be featured in the revamped railroad, “carrying on the long tradition of warm welcomes and amusing anecdotes while adding fresh commentary and story to the journey.”
Tron is the reason that the Walt Disney World Railroad has been shuttered since 2018. With the coaster nearing completion and a spring 2023 opening, the railroad reopened Friday morning after Disney had said the previous day that it would reopen “this holiday season.”
Editor’s Note: This story was updated after its original publication to reflect that the Disney World railroad reopened on Friday, Dec. 23.
