Disney plans a boatload of new attractions and rides coming in the next few years to its Disney theme parks and Bilingual Mom Taty Pradilla has the full list for you, straight from announcements at the amazing D23 Expo. Hang on tight. The news will have you joyfully spinning!
Coming Soon to Disney Theme Parks
Disney’s D23 Expo is the Utlimate Disney Fan Event. The 2017 D23 included so much news about the future of Disney World theme parks that it was easy to get dizzy and very excited at the same time. At the Disney Resorts and Parks Panel, it was two hours of non-stop huge announcements of what is to come in the next few years to the theme parks. Here are all of the new rides, attractions and news on the Disney Parks.
Coming Soon to the Walt Disney World Parks – EPCOT
There were plenty of rumors around Epcot changes. These are what we confirmed at D23:
Mission Space: two different things are happening with this attraction
- In addition to the orange mission we now enjoy, a second green mission will be added this August.
- Out of this world dining will soon be offered (date to be determined) high above the park with fantastic views and dishes that will delight everyone in a table-service environment of wonder.
Guardians of the Galaxy Attraction: Future World will offer an e-ticket attraction beginning in 2021. This ride will and replace the current Ellen’s Energy Adventure.
Ratatouille: France is going to get more food fun starting in 2021. This is the most sought after ride in Disney Paris. It will feature a crazy kitchen race at the France Pavillion, based on the popular movie. The ride will immerse us in the sight and smells of Gusteau’s Parisian restaurant.
China Pavillion: To give us a more vivid representation of the beauty of China, a new seamless circle-vision movie will replace the current one. Date for the movie change has not yet been shared.
Coming Soon At The Walt Disney World Parks – HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS
Two big expansions are planned for Hollywood studios:
Toy Story Land: the new attractions and rides for this area are set to open in summer 2018. No details were given, but from the footage shared, perhaps a roller coaster is in the making.
Star Wars Land: This has an official name, Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge. It is expected to open in summer 2019. This land will be an immersive and interactive experience where you can find rebels actively recruiting new soldiers. BB8, Chewbacca and more will be at hand to help you win points and make a name for yourself in a galaxy far far away.
Coming Soon to the Walt Disney World Parks – MAGIC KINGDOM
It is difficult to think of anything going away at the Magic Kingdom. Nothing will. Instead, the park will get two things added to its list of attractions.
Tron: This exciting Shangai Disney ride will soon claim a space next to Space Mountain in Tomorrowland. Opening date yet to be shared.
Main Street USA New Theater: There will be a new venue for live entertainment inspired by the Kansas City art deco theater building where Walt Disney used to work. Opening date yet to be shared.
