Disney Makes Major Announcements at D23

This weekend Disney announced changes coming to Walt Disney World in the future.   So let’s get started.

Hollywood Studios

  • Star Wars Land is to be named – Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge. It will open first in Disneyland.

 

  • The Great Movie Ride will be closing August 13.  They are replacing it with a new attraction call Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway with new technology that is not 3D but what Disney is calling 2 1/2D that will give you the feel of 3D with no glasses.  The outside of the building is said to be staying the same.

  • Toy Story Land will open summer 2018!

Epcot:

  • A new attraction based on Ratatouille similar to the one in Disneyland Paris will go into a new area in France near the Eiffel Tower.
  • A new seamless circle-vision film is to be introduced in China.
  • The Guardians of the Galaxy ride IS coming to the Future World area of Epcot. Plans are to have it open by the 50th anniversary (2021).
  • There will be a new table service restaurant near Mission Space that will be themed where you are dining in space.

  • The Mission Space refurbishment currently going on will reopen next month with a new Green Mission.

Magic Kingdom:

  • The Tron ride currently in Shanghi Disney will be added to the Magic Kingdom, but unlike previous rumors, it will NOT be replacing the Tomorrowland Speedway. It will be in a new space next to Space Mountain. Again to be open by the 50th in 2021.

  • The Star Wars resort IS coming to Walt Disney World! A luxury, totally immersive, multi day experience, nothing like anything before.  No date for it’s opening has been announced yet.
  • There will be a new point to point transport vehicle in Walt Disney World – “Minnie Vans” – red and white polka dot Chevy Traverse vehicles.
  • Additionally, a new transportation system named “the Skyliner” will be a gondola based system between Hollywood Studios, Epcot, Art of Animation, & Pop Century.

Disney Cruise Line:

  • A new Beauty and the Beast Show (based on the live action film) is coming to Disney Cruise Line.
  • There will be another ship added to the fleet by 2023 (in addition to the 2 already being built).

DISNEYLAND RESORT:

  • Pixar Fest is coming to DL in 2018 – Fireworks, characters

  • Paint the Night – the nighttime parade at DL will return.
  • Next summer, Paradise Pier will become “Pixar Pier”!
  • Cars Land is getting a Halloween overlay this fall.
