Being as parades and fireworks are very important at the Magic Kingdom, it's probably wise to expand the viewing areas by the castle (it really gets jammed there at showtime).

Any thing that helps navigate through the crowds and hub area is a plus in my books.

Yeah, this area was a bottleneck the last time we were there. This looks like a great improvement and it should help crowds flow through the area better.

Disney seems to be enjoying these 24 hour parties. One day I'll have to do one just to say I did.

Love what they are doing to the central hub!!
Wow another 24 hour day? I did the "One More Disney Day" at Disneyland the last Leap Year, it was absolutely insane, but glad I did it!

I would love it if that outer ring is used for Guest Control routes while the inner ring and everything inside is for unobstructed parade/fireworks viewing. That would be great.

Wonder if there will be areas for people who made FP+ reservations to view a parade or fireworks in that area, and where will they be?

I love donkeys more than me.

These special events always look great fun on TRs - but they also have amazing crowds on these days which is bad for doing rides... :roll:

That is exactly what they do at Tokyo Disneyland and this new hub is very reminiscent of Tokyo's so I'd have to think that's at least the "plan."

I personally *LOVE* this!!! I always thought that while the hub looked nice with all the gardens and water, that was a lot of real estate that was wasted. And this is a nice combination of the two.

The new design still looks fantastic and lush, while at the same time still being practical. I'm assuming when it's all done, after a couple of years most people won't even notice. Kind of like no one today really notices or remembers from before Disneyland opened up the whole New Orleans in the 90s. People complained about it when they did that, but it still looked amazing and it was waaaaay more practical!

I've gone pantless!

^Exactly. Before Disney added that bridge and reconfigured the queue in front Pirates of the Caribbean at Disneyland, that spot was was a really bad bottleneck--particularly during Fantasmic. The plan for the Magic Kingdom seems a logical step.
