I heard this rumor a little bit ago, but it’s official now. The monorails at Walt Disney World are about to become light cycles! In an effort to market Disney’s TRON: Legacy, you’ll start seeing this branded version of the monorail on the Epcot line as early as this month. The monorails will have a light cycle towards the front of the monorail while the rest of the monorail will have the wall of light.
I know some probably won’t like this, but I think it looks really cool. I’m tempted to get down there just to see the light cycles running around! Oh, and be prepared for more elements of TRON to make it into the parks. In the post announcing the TRON monorail, Thomas Smith of the Disney Parks Blog hinted at more updates to come before the movie hits theaters on December 17. I’m not sure why updates on the movie would come through the Disney Parks Blog unless the updates have something to do with TRON in the parks. I know I’m excited!
