A new permit filed Monday shows construction plans for two upcoming Magic Kingdom attractions.

An application submitted to the South Florida Water Management District calls for “construction of new buildings, roads sidewalks and landscaped areas” in the east side of the park.

Documents included in the filing appear to show the location of the Tron Lightcycle buiding as well as the new Main Street Theater.

On the diagrams, the building for the Tron attraction is labeled MK2 and located behind Space Mountain in Tomorrowland. Meanwhile, the Main Street Theater is labeled MK1 and located just off Main Street, U.S.A in what is now a parking lot area.

Both attractions were announced in July at Disney’s D23 Expo in Anaheim, California.

Disney already has a Tron Lightcycle ride at its newest resort, Shanghai Disney Resort.

The Main Street Theater will be based on the 1920s Willis Theater in Kansas City. It feature Broadway-style productions.

Additional details about the attractions have not yet been released.

Last week, a new permit was filed for Epcot's upcoming Ratatouille attraction.
