Paging Tom Morrow. That’s the day construction will begin on the new Willis Wood Theater style building that is going to be added to Main Street U.S.A at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom.
At last summer’s D23 the new theater building was announced. The design will be inspired by the Willis Wood Theater that stood in Kansas City, Missouri from 1902 until 1917. This is fitting as Main Street is based off of Walt’s hometown of Marceline, Missouri and he spent time in Kansas City.
Construction will begin on 10/28. There is no word yet on how long construction will take place or what the name of the theater will be. As for what it will be used for, again, no official word yet, but it will probably be used for some kind of stage show. The theater would be a benefit because, like a regular theater, shows can be changed out to showcase whatever new movie they wanted to promote.
The rumored location of the theater is the parking area behind Main Street, with the “dead end” street in the middle of Main Street leading into the entrance. Essentially, it would make “more” Main Street for guests to enjoy.
