    I can't picture where this will be located from the concept art; does anybody know or have guesses?

    I truly hope Tony's Town Square will remain; our family loves the restaurant. So hope this goes into the bypass area.

    My guess is the area know as Mainstreet east / Center st and the management parking lot behind

    I'm excited for this only in that it will pull a few hundred people out of line for other things. Sort of like a parade.

    And those meets could be doing the "shuffle" again.

    They said on Main Street U.S.A. at the Magic Kingdom. Looking at the building, it's obviously the theater. You can even see the backstage gates that they use when the park is crowded on the left in green.

    Almost a perfect fit...

    Edit: How cool would it be if Center Street actually went somewhere?

    My guess is that this would be at the end of the inlet on the right/east side of main street. There is an expansion pad in that area.

    EDIT: as pictured above

    But it could also go off the bypass and still be part of main street.

    I know that this is just a guess, but given @danlb_2000's track record.. I think this is the most logical option. I'm just waiting for him to confirm it via permits.

    From the Disney Parks Blog Post, "it’ll fit well right off Main Street, U.S.A."

    I like the sound of that!
    "The new entertainment venue will be based on the iconic Willis Wood theater in 1920s Kansas City, where Walt lived after he left Marceline."

    a bit more of Walt's heritage!

    I 2nd this! Tony's Town Square was the 1st Disney restaurant I ever ate at. I have fond memories of the place. Would be a shame to see it close.

    This is just speculation on my part, I have no inside information.
