ImageTron's arrival at the Magic Kingdom has today been officially confirmed at the D23 Expo! AND it won't be replacing the Tomorrowland Speedway!
Also another interesting addition will be of a new theatre off Main Street, USA, which will take influence from the Willis Theatre in Kansas City.

Minnie Transportation

A new transportation option is coming to Walt Disney World, inspired by Minnie Mouse herself. This new point to point service is resemblant of a taxi service however this is special as it features "Minnie Vans"!

TRON Lightcycle Power Run
 
TRON Lightcycle Power Run has been confirmed for the Magic Kingdom. It'll be in its own new area next to Space Mountain and the Tomorrowland Speedway, featuring the amazing light dome seen at Shanghai Disney. The attraction layout is anticipated to be identical to the Shanghai edition however we may see some slight adjustments. The attraction is hoped to be open by 2021 in time for the park’s 50th anniversary celebrations!

New Theatre
 
A new theatre is being built in Mainstreet USA which is inspired by the Wills Wood theatre in 1920’s Kansas City where Walt himself lived. There is currently no indication of what shows will be here, however I’m sure it’ll be fantastic.

Permits have now been filed for the Tron Lightcycle Coaster and Main Street Theatre, and the details confirm the exact location of the new attraction.

Located in Tomorrowland, the attraction will occupy a plot of vacant land next to Space Mountain, although plans show that the Tomorrowland Speedway will have to have its track slightly adjusted to accomodate the new addition. The timescales outlined in the documents indicate that the new coaster should be open in 2021 in time for Magic Kingdom's 50th anniversary (a timescale which matches what was announced at D23 in July this year).

In the same application, details of the location of the new Main Street Theatre are also revealed. In [url=the plans]the plans[/url] the Main Street Theatre is indicated as MK1 and shows it located on what is currently a car park situated southwest of the Carousel of Progress and behind the now closed Galaxy Palace Theatre.

According to thekingdominsider.com, construction on the new theatre near Main Street began on the 28th October, must mean that permits have already been filed and approved if necessary.

A theatre that takes 1000 or so people off the paths/queues for 45 minutes is always a good thing, hope they use some of that big open space to provide some seating for people to sit down and have a drink/snack, there used to be a few places you could sit down and relax for a bit along main street, now it's all high capacity starbucks and stores with no seats around.

As was mentioned in the ShoutBox, Disney is finally reopening the Hall of Presidents at Magic Kingdom. President Trump has been recreated in animatronic form, and will give a speech, the beginning of which includes part of the presidential oath, before going on to tell the audience about the American spirit and about the American constitution. The link below has a video of the Trump animatronic in action, so take a look for yourself!
