The Wait is Over; the Amway Center is Open for Business

Via the Orlando Magic:

For years, the city of Orlando has generally been branded as the place where Mickey Mouse roams, Shamu performs and kids play.

Although that certainly has not changed, there is a new item on the docket for everyone to enjoy and admire.

Amway Center, which officially opened on Friday during a memorable ribbon-cutting ceremony, is now another item on the checklist.

The new home of the Orlando Magic is undoubtedly the most technologically advanced sports and entertainment facility in North America. There are 1,100 high definition video displays at the dazzling venue.

After a very elaborate ceremony outside the main entrance, thousands of people piled into the Amway Center for Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer’s annual State of Downtown Address.

Alex Martins has constantly preached that every seat in the house is a good one, so we'll see if that statement holds true.

@Mike Camunas

Yeah, it's beautiful.

Huzzah! Can't wait to go to a game there. I'm hoping the cheap seats are as good of a view as the ol' O-Rena (assuming you weren't behind the backboard, of course).
