We learned at this year’s D23 Expo that a new theater would be built at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World. Rumors and speculation have been swirling as to the location within the Magic Kingdom where the theater would be built. Various sources have been confirming today that the new theater will be built at the cast member parking lot area that is located right behind Main Street, USA. Guests have seen this area in the past when it has been used as a pass through to allow guests to more easily move through the area when the park is at high capacity levels. The theater is currently set to begin construction sometime after October 28th, this year.
The theme and inspiration for the new theater is the Willis Wood Theater in Kansas City from the 1920’s. We don’t have updated reports yet as to an opening date for the theater or what entertainment offerings that we can expect. We know that with Disney it is sure to be something amazing, but no word yet on what exactly to expect.
As always, we will keep you posted as we learn more and provide updates when we have them!
