Disney Continues on its Future Trek!
While it may be hard to believe the year 2020 is now here, we shouldn’t be surprised at all that our friends over at Walt Disney World were indeed ready for it. After all, has Disney not build its name and success on being imaginative and futuristic? Yes, the builders of Space Mountain and creators of Epcot are still at it.
The opening of Galaxy’s Edge has come to pass and is exceeding the wildest imaginations of Star Wars fans young and old. The battle between the First Order and the Rise of the Resistance is still going strong!
Millennium Falcon Disney
But the Millennium Falcon isn’t the only thing in flight that’s new at Walt Disney World in 2020! Let’s take a peak at some upcoming attractions and events so you can plan your trip (or trips!) accordingly.
This first one isn’t going to be up and running this year. While we’re talking about the future, remember the blockbuster movie Tron? Well Disney sure does. So much so that they’ve been working on a new attraction … the TRON Lightcycle Run Coaster. The ride is set to open in 2021 in Disney’s Tomorrowland. Talk about getting a run for your money!
Tomorrowland Speedway at Disney
If you’re planning a trip to Tomorrowland sooner than that, you’ll be happy to know that the Tomorrowland Speedway has reopened. The FastPass attraction had been closed temporarily for updates alongside the TRON construction. Space Mountain is also temporarily closed for some winter maintenance but should reopen soon.
Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind
The other highly anticipated futuristic attraction now under construction is Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. Set to open in 2021 in Epcot’s Future World, the ride marks the first time that a Marvel themed movie makes its presence at Disney. Probably won’t be the last. The E-ticket attraction will utilize the former Universe of Energy building as its loading area. This will also include a brand new building under construction that will house the ride itself.
In what is being touted as a “storytelling” coaster, the technology is set to test new barriers. The cars will move from left to right while “facing” the story, instead of speeding by it as in traditional coasters. Get ready!
Epcot International Festival of the Arts 2020
If you just can’t wait that long for your next trip to Disney, there’s the Epcot International Festival of the Arts coming up which runs from Jan. 17 – Feb. 24. This annual festival features the best of the perfoming, visual, and culinary arts. This festival also includes lots of food presented by some of the world’s finest chefs! Several new movies will debut in Epcot at the various pavilions which will be part of what’s new in Walt Disney World for 2020.
The festival also features the ever-popular Disney on Broadway Concert Series with shows scheduled nightly at the America Gardens Theater. Check back soon for the complete line-up including all that’s new at Walt Disney World in 2020!
