According to the Disney Parks Blog, it picks up following the events of “TRON: Legacy,” whose main character, Sam Flynn, is now opening new gateways into this digital realm at specific locations around the world. The first portal he created is at Shanghai Disneyland with the original TRON Lightcycle Power Run, and now Magic Kingdom guests will get their turn through this second gateway.

Disney Cast members will be the first to try out the attraction. Previews will also be available for Disney Annual Passholders and eligible Disney Vacation Club members.
