Disney Parks - Wonderful World of Animation

This morning, Disney Parks unveiled a bunch of new plans from D23 Destination D: Celebrating Mickey Mouse. We already covered the biggest news about Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, including new music from John Williams and teasers of the upcoming attractions coming to the parks next year, but for all you Disney fans who may not be all that excited about going to a galaxy far, far away, there’s plenty of good stuff coming for you too.

Disney Parks announced a new nighttime spectacular that will be opening at the park in 2020, a new limited time experience at the Epcot Center, details on a Ratatouille experience and Beauty and the Beast sing-along coming to the France Pavillion, and a ton of Mickey Mouse-centric celebrations, including a new cinematic nighttime experience that starts with the iconic mouse and runs through Disney’s history of spectacular animation.

Get the details on all the new Disney Parks attractions coming in the next couple years below. Read More »

It seems that the new attraction may be heading to California’s Disneyland as well, suggesting a brighter future for both the iconic mouse and for Disney’s thought-to-be-doomed Toontown. Read More »

indiana jones land

Indiana Jones may be getting an upgrade at Walt Disney World. As the theme park readies itself for a park-wide makeover ahead of the resort’s 50th anniversary in 2021, it’s reportedly looking to one of its underused properties. Though Indy has been at the center of an old-school stunt show for decades, Disney might soon be expanding the action property into a full-fledged Indiana Jones land.

Galaxy's Edge blasters

Based on everything we’ve seen thus far, theme park fans are soon going to classify all events into two separate time periods: the era before Disney’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens, and the era afterward. Disney’s immersive new Star Wars land opens next year, and we’ve just heard about yet another way they’re going to try to create the illusion that guests are walking around in a galaxy far, far away. Better keep your heads on a swivel, because it looks like there’s going to be blaster fire flying through the air. Read More »

Pirates of the Caribbean Redd

Updates to Disney theme park rides are a fairly regular occurrence, even to the beloved and iconic Pirates of the Caribbean, the last attraction that Walt Disney personally oversaw before his death in 1966. We’ve already written about how they’ve added a new female pirate character named Redd to a revamped version of the ride’s auction scene, but now we have some new video of Redd meeting guests in the park.

Pixar Fest

Pixar is one of Disney’s greatest assets, but thus far, the animation giant hasn’t had much of a significant presence in the company’s theme parks. Sure, there’s an occasional attraction here and there (Toy Story Mania, etc.) and even a section devoted to Cars at Disneyland’s California Adventure, but Pixar is about to become a much bigger player there with the upcoming Pixar Pier.

For those who can’t visit the parks in person, we have a few videos below of a new Pixar-branded parade and fireworks show seen during the festivities at the limited-time celebration known as Pixar Fest, as well as a permanent Up-themed addition to Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom.
