D23 Update: Magic Kingdom Enhancements

This weekend we received some pretty huge Disney park announcements from D23. These huge announcements mean we’ve got plenty in store for us Disney fanatics well into the future. And this also confirms that Walt Disney World’s 50th birthday in 2021 will be absolutely massive.

Space mountain will be getting a new neighbor coming all the way from China. The Tron Lightcycle Coaster will becoming to Tomorrowland and contrary to earlier reports the Tomorrowland Speedway will be staying. Opening with the park in 2016, the Tron Lightcycle is the #1 rated attraction at the Shanghai Disneyland resort. Unlike any other attraction in the world guests will climb aboard a motorcycle looking vehicle and be taken on a high speed journey into the world of Tron. This attraction is planned to open in 2021 for the Disney World 50th.

A new theater will be coming to the Magic Kingdom park as well. The theater will be based off the 1920s era Willis Wood theater in Kansas City. Close to Walt’s heart as Kansas City was were he left his childhood home of Marceline, MO for. The announcement stated that the theater would be located just off of Main Street, U.S.A. We at WDW Opinion believe that the location will be behind Tony’s Town Square. In this area there is a newish walkway that is used to funnel crowds out of the park after fireworks and other nighttime entertainment. This new theater would work well in that area that has also seen construction recently. Additionally the walkway has potential to become permanent and open to guest traffic throughout the day. No word on an opening or what shows will be there but stay tuned for more details.

What’s your Disney Opinions on the new experiences coming to Magic Kingdom? Are you excited? Or maybe there was something you thought was going to be announced but didn’t? Let us know what your thoughts on the matter are.
