Is Shanghai's TRON Coster Coming to Walt Disney World?

Rumors are picking up speed that Disneyland and/or Walt Disney World may be getting a copy of Shanghai Disneyland's TRON Coaster. Do you think it could be a real possibility or just some fantasy rumor mumbling?

http://www.slashfilm.com/tron-roller-coaster-disneyland-disney-world-rumors/

Another Disney website "claims that Walt Disney World is "planning to build the attraction in Tomorrowland ahead of October 1st, 2021, the start of the 50th-anniversary celebration for the entire resort." The plan is to put the coaster on the site of the Tomorrowland Speedway, but they note that the former Galaxy Palace Theater space (now cast member parking) is also a possibility."

Have you seen the TRON Coaster yet? Would you ride it?

I have questions about if large sized people can even fit into the ride. It would make me really sad if WDW created another ride that was a bit uncomfortable for such a huge segment of American tourist. The seats on Seven Dwarfs Mine train can already be fairly uncomfortable for large men riding single. The design of this while cool, seems like it's rather unforgiving.

Has anyone heard anything about it? Discuss!

You really have to ride it hunched over. There is a platform that you rest your chest on, but yea, it's awkward.

Amy loves the movie Tron and she is really hoping this ride comes to WDW. I am kind of hoping it doesn't because this ride might be the only way I can get her to go to Shanghai so I can play in Pirates Cove!
