In honor of The Lion King’s 25th Anniversary, the Animal Kingdom is hosting this all-new dance party in 2019. Head to Discovery Island, January 18-September 30, to show off your best dance moves with Simba, Timon, and Rafiki.


Transformation of Epcot

Epcot is undergoing a multi-year transformation, which means there’s a lot to look forward at this park in 2019 and in the year’s to come. The transformation aims to keep the park’s original vision intact but also make the area more family-friendly. For example, park goers can look forward to attractions like a “Beauty and the Beast” sing-a-long at the France Pavilion. As of right now, further details have not yet been released. However, rumors are circulating that two more countries will be added to World Showcase as part on the over $1 billion investment into Epcot.


All-New Epcot Nighttime Spectacular: Epcot Forever

Fall 2019

Disney Parks is retiring IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth at the end of summer 2019. Then, for a limited time only, Epcot will feature Epcot Forever. This nighttime show is a celebration of the park set to classic Epcot tunes. Highlights will include fireworks, lasers, and choreographed special effects kites. Then, in 2020, Epcot will debut a permanent new nighttime spectacular promising to inspire people from around the globe.  So much to look forward to!!

Ratatouille Attraction

Scheduled Summer 2020

At Epcot’s France Pavilion, a “Ratatouille” inspired attraction will open. This ride will be similar to the attraction already open at Disney Park in Paris. As such, guests will “shrink” to Remy’s size, then scurry around Gusteau’s legendary Parisian Restaurants.

Guardians of the Galaxy Attraction

Schedule for 2021

Future World will be home to a new “Guardians of the Galaxy” inspired attraction. Few details have been released but we do know it will replace Ellen’s Energy Adventure and center on Peter Quill, or Star-Lord’s, visit to Epcot as a child.

Does all of this sound exciting?  You bet it does!  And all of these new activities is from just one of the Parks — Magic Kingdom.  There is more to come at the other Parks.  Stay tuned to Part 4.
