D23: New Entertainment Theater to Debut at Magic Kingdom

New Entertainment Theater to Debut at Magic Kingdom

To expand the entertainment offerings at Magic Kingdom, it was announced last weekend at D23 Expo that a new theater will be built at the park.

Walt Disney Parks & Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek said the new entertainment venue will be inspired by the iconic Willis Theater as it looked in 1920s Kansas City, when Walt lived there.

“Across Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, we’ve been upping the game in Entertainment with shows like Frozen Live at the Hyperion,” Chapek said. “…This new theater at Walt Disney World continues that streak by bringing a new venue for world-class entertainment to the world’s biggest park.”

No word on what type of entertainment will be offered in the theater, nor when it will open. And other than it’s located “right off Main Street, U.S.A.,” they also weren’t specific on the exact location.

Will it replace the building that currently houses Tony’s Town Square Restaurant and the Town Square Theater, or will it be located in currently unused space in that area? As we get more details, we’ll let you know.
