New Theater Inspired By Kansas City's Willis Wood Theater to be built at the Magic Kingdom

Jul 15, 2017 in "Main Street, U.S.A."

Theater is about to get serious at the Magic Kingdom with the addition of a brand new theater off Main Street U.S.A.

The new entertainment venue will be based on the iconic Willis Wood theater in 1920s Kansas City, where Walt lived after he left Marceline.

“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.”

Plans call for the new theater to be built in what is currently backstage areas between Main Street U.S.A. and Tomorrowland.
