USA Today has just posted an article with information about the status of various attractions at Walt Disney World. We have been reporting that a couple of attractions, the Tron Lightcycle Run in the Magic Kingdom and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT, have been postponed.
With the Tron coaster, they shut the entire building off and closed the hole around the tracks.

This seems that the delay for the Tron coaster has also been confirmed by USA Today. Of course plans can change. I hope they do.
Here’s what they said:
“Another big-ticket, eagerly anticipated roller coaster, TRON Lightcycle / Run, is under construction next to Space Mountain in the Magic Kingdom’s Tomorrowland. The launched ride, which will also include indoor scenes, will be themed to the “Tron” sci-fi movies. The coaster isn’t expected to open during the park’s 50th birthday year.”
No confirmation on the Guardian’s of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind delay, but we are hearing the the upcoming Moana themed “Journey of Water” coming to EPCOT will most likely open after 2021 as well.
They also mentioned that the upcoming new table service restaurant in Toy Story Land, Roundup Rodeo BBQ, will likely not open this year as well.
I expect a lot of changes, postponements, and cancellations to happen in the next few months. Disney has said that 2021 would be a huge year for Walt Disney World as it is the 50th Anniversary of the park. They have EPCOT torn up for all the changes they were going to make to it. Now some of those plans have gone away, like the Festival pavilion.
I have a feeling the “big” things that people were expecting aren’t going to happen or we will get a new parade or a new paint job on an attraction or something like that instead. Still hoping that Disney can get some projects open, besides Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure and Harmonious, but I’m not holding my breath.
Still at least Walt Disney World is open. Disneyland isn’t even there yet.
