The Magic Kingdom is celebrating its 50th anniversary soon and at the D23 Expo last month, Disney confirmed two bits of information for the park: perhaps the most interesting with the announcement of a TRON Lightcycle Power Run attraction and perhaps the least interesting with the announcement of a new theater coming to Main Street but no mention as to what would be going on inside.
Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek
Although Disney didn’t officially give it a name they did confirm that the popular TRON Lightcycle Power Run from Shanghai Disneyland will be coming to the Magic Kingdom in a new space near Space Mountain. Chapek also confirmed that it would be ready in time for the park’s 50th Anniversary.
New Theatre Space
A new live entertainment theater is also coming to Main Street, U.S.A., based on the iconic Willis Theater in 1920s Kansas City. There was little else mentioned about the theatre — you know, like what will play inside — but it’s promised to bring “world-class entertainment to the world’s most popular park.” What would you like to see come to the theatre? We’ve been waiting for ages for MULAN to be adapted as a live stage musical but that’s just our wishful thinking.
