NEW Animal Kingdom Attractions Coming

Animal Kingdom in Disney World is always evolving and expanding, with new attractions and experiences being added every year. We are so excited to hear about some new Animal Kingdom attractions coming in 2023 and beyond.

Disney World Animal Kingdom Guide

Walt Disney World celebrated the 25th anniversary of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park on Earth Day, April 22, 2023.

This day marks just how many changes have been made to the park in the last two and a half decades and how many more will be coming in the future.

Zootopia Show

It has been announced that a new show based on “Zootopia” is being created for the Tree of Life theater in Animal Kingdom, replacing “It’s Great to be a Bug”

The current concept for the new “Zootopia” show has guests visiting the different biomes seen briefly in the film, traveling along with Judy Hopps, Nick Wilde and other characters.

Dino Land Makeover

As we anticipated, Animal Kingdom is going to be dismantling Dino Land and adding a new “Tropical Americas” themed area.

Imagineers are looking at some of the most biodiverse areas on the planet in the regions just north and south of the equator in the Western Hemisphere – the northern part of South America, stretching up into Central America.

Possibilities include lands based on Encanto & Indiana Jones.

Hello. Do you know how long Dino Bash will last? I'm heading to WDW in January and I'm dying for these costumes. Many thanks for your help. :)

Dessert cruise? That sounds right up my alley! Even better that it's to watch the fireworks. I've never been to Disney World but I would love to!! I loved Disneyland and Tokyo Disney Sea. Thanks for sharing about all the new additions in 2018.
