The Magic Kingdom permit is short on details, but includes both the Tron coaster and the new theater. The entrance to the theater is on Main Street USA, but the show buildings for both new attractions are within the boundaries of Tomorrowland.

The new permit for the Ratatouille attraction has more detail, showing the ride being built on the pad between France and Morocco, as expected. Some of the backstage buildings are being relocated during construction, including a cast member breakroom and an entertainment trailer.

The path to the attraction will follow the canal between the United Kingdom and France before passing behind the existing pavilion. There appears to be new shopping and dining options along the path, plus new restrooms.
