The Orlando Sentinel posted an article that says the building that housed Dixie Stampede is going to be demolished to expand the outlet malls across the street.
Here’s the first part of the Sentinel article:
Orlando mall to raze Dixie Stampede for more stores

Orange County recently reviewed plans for the project, which will add 100,000 square feet to the 550,000-square foot complex across Vineland Avenue. Two buildings will be added.
Simon must make some technical changes to its application before getting final approval, county planning administrator John Smogor said. Simon has not yet purchased the property but is expected to close on it soon.
Word on the street is that the Hunger Games Dinner Adventure could not be retrofit into the original building. While the Simon group does indeed want additional shopping to be added, the addition of two buildings implies that this new facility will be customized to meet the technical requirements of the show. This obviously delays the introduction of the Hunger Games Dinner Adventure, and explains why the press release was pulled from http://www.prnewswire.com/.
