In 1996,
David Copperfield announced plans for “Copperfield’s Magic Underground,” an interactive magic-themed restaurant to be located in WDW, with another to be built in Times Square in new York City. He and Disney proposed to take patrons to “the secret underground lair of David Copperfield” on a magic adventure where they would actually “experience the magic” (such as levitating tables) as they dined. Although signs announcing the restaurant’s imminent arrival could be seen in Downtown Disney, the restaurant, set to open
in the summer of 1999, never materialized (pardon the pun), although a store bearing the same name appeared (there
‘s that pun again), briefly in Dowtown Disney’s West Side.
