If you have been wondering what’s coming to Walt Disney World, let me tell you, there are many new things in the works! Some rides will be leaving, but not to worry, they will be replaced with some pretty cool new attractions. There will also be new resorts, restaurants and many other new experiences!

We can’t wait to share what’s coming to Walt Disney World in the next few years.

There are going to be some pretty great updates!

What’s Coming to Disney World

EPCOT

Epcot will be having a HUGE overhaul in the upcoming years that will be done in stages.

Ellen’s Universe of Energy at Future World in Epcot is gone in preparation for a new Guardians of the Galaxy ride. I would imagine that with this new ride, we might also be seeing some meet & greets!

Ratatouille: The Adventure ride (like the one Disneyland Paris) will be coming to the World Showcase in France. We had the chance to ride this in Disneyland Paris and it was fun!  

This ride is a 4D experience where you are turned into a rat like Remy and go on a race through Gustau’s  Parisian restaurant.  

Not only will you wear 3-D glasses, but you will also be experiencing smells of Paris and twists and turns as you go on your journey.

There will be an Inside Out ride that will be take the place of Figment Journey into Imagination.

We don’t know the details but it has been speculated that it will take you on a ride through the mind.

MAGIC KINGDOM

Magic Kingdom will also experience some changes.

NEW Princess & the Frog Ride in Magic Kingdom

Splash Mountain in Magic Kingdom is getting a total face lift.

No longer will it take on the Song of the South theme with Brer Rabbit.

It is currently being reimagined and will be turning into a musical adventure based on the animated Disney film “The Princess and the Frog.”

Guests will join Princess Tiana and Louis on a musical adventure as they prepare for their first Mardi Gras performance!

Tron coming to Magic Kingdom

A Tron attraction is coming to Tomorrowland right next to the Space Mountain attraction at Magic Kingdom.  

This will be similar to the TRON Light cycle Power Run attraction at Shanghai Disneyland  where you board a two-wheeled Light cycle and go on a roller coaster like journey into the world of Tron.

This isn’t expected to be opened until 2021.

DISNEY RESORTS

Also coming in 2021 is the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser!

Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is a Star Wars–themed luxury hotel that comes with some great experiences that will be geared toward those hoping to get a true Star Wars immersion experience.

Star Wars fans can book a 2 night, cruise style itinerary where you will get to experience Hollywood Studios like never before!

Your adventures begins at The Galactic Starcruiser Terminal, where you will board an exclusive launch pod for travel up to the Halcyon, your starcruiser.

As you travel through space, you will be able to see through various viewports.

During your trip, you will travel to Black Spire Outpost and onto the planet Batuu (also known as Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge).

This is going to be a real immersive experience with many unique amenities and experiences!

Disney World Vacation

There are so many things coming to Disney World in the next few years that we can expect to find the parks busier than ever!

Make sure that if you plan to visit Disney World in 2021, that you book your Disney World vacation soon.

I’m upset about journey into imagination. It was my favorite ride as a child and my now 4 year old and I went on it more times than I can count last year because he loved it too. All of my kids have a stuffed figment. I really hope he stays.

We love all 4 parks and my 5 year old daughter absolutely loves Figment and always wants to go there multiple times each day we visit Epcot.

I heard the Tiki Room at MK could potentially be transformed to house Moana full-time? Anything on this or her being a permanent resident anywhere?

She was near the Tiki room for a short time during Halloween Party dates. We think that she might end up there for good in the spring. We'll update when we have confirmation.

I'm so upset that Figment could be going, he's one of my favourite attractions.

I’m also upset for the possible loss of figment. He has been my favorite since I was a child. Fingers crossed that he will stay in some fashion or another.

I hear this so much. Figment is going to be missed by a lot of people. Hopefully, Disney will see this and bring him back in some fashion.

I think Guardians of the Galaxy should be at Hollywood Studios and not Epcot it really doesn't fit the theme of Epcot.

i think that because Epcot does not bring in as much as MK is why Epcot is getting Guardians of the Galaxy, Routoullie, and more countries one possible two believed to be Brazil and Spain with spain having a ride. These are all ways to nudge people to buy tickets for all four parkets and not so easily cross off Hollywood, Animal, or Epcot so easily

I know what you mean. I think they are tying it into Future World and since they have space themed rides, Guardians of the Galaxy was their way to bridge the two.
