If you are a Disney Parks fan like me, you have likely been keeping up with the announcements from this weekend’s D23 Expo! Since my interest in Disney revolves mainly around the Walt Disney World, here is a recap of what’s coming to the resort in Florida:
A new theatre inspired by the Willis Wood Theatre in Kansas, City (where Walt Disney lived after leaving Marceline) is coming to Main Street USA inside the Magic Kingdom. It sounds as this will be the site for shows such as Frozen Live.
The new Disney Skyliner will connect the International Gateway at Epcot to Disney’s Art of Animation, Pop Century, and Caribbean beach. I can totally see riding these just for the view! A new Disney Vacation Club Resort is also coming that will be on the Skyliner line, too.
A new point-to-point transportation system of Minnie Vehicles is being introduced. Not many details on these minivans were discussed, but I’m assuming they will come at an additional cost. Depending on the price, I can totally see paying up for this service if it means avoiding a long wait at the bus stop!
Toy Story Land is officially set to up inside of Disney’s Hollywood Studios in the summer of 2018! This highly-themed section of the park will give guests the feeling of being shrunk down to toy size in Andy’s backyard. There will be two new attractions: Slinky Dog Dash, a family coaster; and Alien Swirling Saucers, in which guests will spin in toy flying saucers while trying to avoid “The Claw”. Toy Story Mania, which already exists, will be absorbed into Toy Story Land.
Star Wars fans are getting an entire new resort dedicated to the movies. While I’m not a Star Wars fan myself, I can see this hotel becoming THE hottest place to stay on property. The resort won’t just be themed to the films, it will be completely immersive.
And speaking of Star Wars, we now know that the official name of the new Star Wars land being constructions at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Similar to the Harry Potter area at Universal Studios, this new Star Wars section promises to offer guests a completely immersive experience.
