The Orlando Magic will kick off the new their new season with a new attitude and new arena. The new AMWAY is nothing short of breathtaking. Not only does it serve as a new look for the Magic, it also brings a new, I’m sorry, a renewed vibe to the city of Orlando. Orlando’s Mayor Buddy Dyer finally did it and the Magic fans will be living in the dream that he fought for.
I guess the Magic are going to enjoy one of Disney’s worlds. Disney Parks who sponsored the “Champions of the Community” franchise and the Amway Center, it’s a $380 million monstrous facility that sits on eight levels and five concourses that takes up 875,000 square feet. The arena seats up 19,700 for concerts and 18,500 for Orlando Magic games. The facility holds 60 suites, 1,400 club seats, 68 loge boxes (328 seats) and 17 hospitality areas. It has 37 state of the art restrooms, 18 elevators (and four towering escalators) and a concession point of sale for every 125 spectators. And did I mention that the arena has more than 1,100 screens of “high definition content?” Now Dwight Howard will have more room to fly around, but not before he checks himself out on the many high definition sets.
Will the new AMWAY center give the Magic a bigger, bolder, and winning drive to win it all? There are a lot more to this place, but what would make it a more exciting venue to watch the Magic win their first championship in the birth year of the new Amway Center. If they cannot get it done this season, at least this new arena will be able to afford them new talents.
