Virtual queues and mandatory lockers await guests wanting to ride Tron Lightcycle Run when it opens at Magic Kingdom on April 4

Disney World’s newest roller coaster is continuing the resort’s pattern of new rides initially being available only through a virtual queue or purchasing an Individual Lightning Lane reservation. The same system was used for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind (which is still not offering a standby line eight months after opening). 

What will be new for Tron Lightcycle is requiring guests to use a locker before boarding. As explained by Disney, the free lockers can be opened with a MagicBand, MagicBand+, or by scanning a Disney ticket. 

“All items must be placed either in a locker before you board your Lightcycle, or in a small compartment located on the attraction vehicle that can hold items such as cell phones, glasses or wallets,” Disney World communications manager Danielle Levien wrote in a post on the official Disney Parks Blog. 

This is the first time that a Disney World ride has required lockers, but the practice is common across other theme parks. Disney rival Universal Orlando uses a similar double-sided system for Jurassic World VelociCoaster.
