New Attractions Announced for Walt Disney World Parks
At the annual D23 event, the Walt Disney Company’s Parks and Resorts branch announced what magic is in store for the coming months and years.
Starting at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge was unveiled as the official name and slated to open in 2019. The expo also gave us the first glimpse of what attractions to expect in the new land
The Star Wars Battle attraction and
The Star Wars Millennium Falcon attraction. While official names and details were not given, the concept art and the recent opening of Pandora’s attractions set up the promise of two out of the world attractions.
Next door to Star Wars Galaxy, Toy Story Land was officially given a Summer 2018 opening date.
A brand new Mickey and Minnie attraction was also announced to be replacing the Great Movie Ride which will close on 8/13. Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway will take guests on an all new storied adventure into the Mickey Mouse cartoon shorts utilizing game changing technologies allowing you to experience the incredible dimensions that Mickey and Minnie call home
Next door at EPCOT, an old favorite gets some new love. Mission Space orange and green side will both be receiving updates to the attraction. While it sounds like orange will remain vastly the same with generational update to bring the attraction into current look and feel. The green side will receive a whole new story that will allow even smaller cadets to take a tour around earth.
Along with newly updated Mission Space, Future World East will also receive even more Disney Magic as a new table dinning experience will open by Patina Restaurant Group next to the updated attraction.
Just a few steps away, a Guardians of the Galaxy e-ticket attraction will be replacing The Universe of Energy.
The new attraction is slated to open by the 50th anniversary of the resort in 2021.
The best cooking rat in all of Europe will be receiving an attraction in the France pavilion. This Ratatouille themed attraction transports guests to Gusteau’s Parisian restaurant as they experience sights, sounds and smells of France. This attraction is expected to be very similar to the Disneyland Paris attraction and will open by the 50th anniversary of the resort in 2021.
The China Pavilion will also receive an updated seamless digital video.
At Magic Kingdom, the Disney legends have smiled down and blessed us from the imaginearing heavens. A TRON themed attraction will be arriving near Space Mountain.
Off of Main Street USA, a brand new live entertainment venue will be constructed based on the iconic Willis Theater in the 1920s Kansas City.
