After 43 years, the single circle of the Magic Kingdom hub will be changed…
Sculpted gardens, new pathways, a new Cinderella Castle stage, and expanded seating near Casey’s Corner and the Plaza Restaurant are all part of the changes. Disney has stated that there will be a dedicated fireworks viewing area somewhere in this redesign. The main focus of the project is to help with guest flow during parade and nighttime entertainment at the park. The enhancements will be completed in 2015.
The changes will affect and forever change the 2 production stands near the Castle (as you can see in the concept art above, they will look like an extension of the castle), the rose garden (looks to be history), and a fair amount of the hub as we know it.
It is currently rumored that a new nighttime show above and around Cinderella Castle will debut in 2015 and all of this is also in preparation for the new production and expected crowds who will want to view it.
