Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom will be getting a new place for live entertainment when a venue inspired by Kansas City’s Willis Wood Theater opens off of Main Street USA.
A first look at the new Walt Disney World theater was unveiled at D23 Expo 2017. The new entertainment venue will be based on the iconic Willis Wood theater in 1920s Kansas City, where Walt lived after he left Marceline. The theater’s style is designed to fit right off Main Street, U.S.A.
“Across Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, we’ve been upping the game in Entertainment with shows like Frozen Live at the Hyperion,” Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts said. “It’s been a huge hit at the Disneyland Resort, and I’m sure many of you have seen it. 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.”
Disney has not yet announced an opening date for the new venue, or what show will debut inside it.
