Exciting New Experiences Are Coming in 2018 to Walt Disney World Resort…

2017 was a busy year for Walt Disney World Resort, with several restaurant and retail openings at Disney Springs, including the all new much-anticipated Planet Hollywood Observatory. Perhaps the biggest and most long-awaited new attraction in the parks opened at Animal Kingdom – Pandora: The World of Avatar.

This year promises to be just as exciting, beginning with all-new attractions at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Opening in the summer, Toy Story Land is a new 11-acre area of the park that promises to transport guests into the adventurous outdoors of Andy’s backyard. Guests can experience two new attractions, including a family-friendly roller coaster on the back of Slinky Dog, and an aliens saucer attraction. Toy Story Mania! will add a third track to the existing popular attraction.

Also this year, ESPN Wide World of Sports will open a new multi-use sports and entertainment venue that can seat more than 8,000 guests and will have the ability to host six regulation basketball courts, six regulation volleyball courts or multiple concert configurations. There will be concessions throughout the building, and an additional box office and entry into the complex.

And there’s even more to look forward to in 2019 and beyond! Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge was announced to open in 2019 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, with a Star Wars-themed resort hotel to follow. Shanghai Disneyland’s highest-rated attraction is coming to Disney’s Magic Kingdom. A thrilling Tron-themed attraction based on the popular movie franchise, will be added in a new area near Space Mountain.

EPCOT has several new plans in place for the next few years. Patterned after the number one family attraction at Disneyland Paris, Ratatouille will bow in an all-new space at the France pavilion. Epcot will also welcome a new E-ticket attraction based on the rockin’ world of Guardians of the Galaxy – versioned to an Epcot story. Green Mission at Mission: SPACE will treat guests to a stunning tour around the Earth and an updated Orange Mission will make the trip to Mars even more spectacular. Adjacent to Mission: SPACE a new restaurant will open its doors, inviting guests to travel high above Earth for an unforgettable dining experience.
