It appears the foundation from The Sorcerer’s Hat was kept to be the new “Center Stage” area

They kinda have parades. The old parades used to circle around there. They got stuff going on for Star Wars Weekends, so good timing.

The Stage is now back up as well. No Millennium Falcon Light Truss yet, but I assume the stage is getting placed for the StarWars Weekends and Frozen Summer.
