Happy 50th Anniversary Disney World! With the big anniversary celebration underway (and continuing until the spring of 2023), we can’t help but notice that some things are still missing in parks and resorts.
From attractions to restaurants to voice assistants, here are 20 opening dates we don’t know about at Disney World!
First of all, there is a long-awaited Shanghai Disney attraction coming to Magic Kingdom’s Tomorrowland: TRON Lightcycle Run! We have been closely monitoring the construction of the new roller coaster and, despite some updates on the evolution of the attraction, we do not yet have a firm opening date for it.
Disney recently announced a new Cavalcade coming to Magic Kingdom in early 2022 called “Disney Adventure Friends Parade“, which has not yet received a release date.
Along with the new cavalcade, there will also be a new stage show called “Mickey’s Magic Friendship Fair”With an updated version of the previous stage show of Cinderella Castle! We haven’t received any updates on this yet.
The last thing we didn’t hear about Magic Kingdom was the opening date the new version of Splash Mountain with The princess and the frog, which is supposed to take years to complete.
For EPCOT, the replacement of the defunct Electric Umbrella restaurant, Connection coffee, was recently announced but has no opening date.
He MoanaThe thematic experience Journey of Water, which is one of the original plans announced for the massive EPCOT transformation project, has no opening date yet. While not much is known about the new attraction, we do know that it will have lush vegetation and interactive aquatic elements.
Another area announced in 2019 is the game! Pavilion, a new fully interactive area where Disney characters come to life in a semi-virtual and semi-real environment that brings together virtual experiences and reality. Construction continues within the former site of Wonders of Life.
Although we know vaguely when this attraction opens, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind has not yet exact opening date. However, we know that we can look forward to the new roller coaster ride, which will feature the first backward launch and an innovative vehicle, in 2022.
Finally, a major refurbishment of the spacecraft it was announced a few years ago, but after it stopped due to COVID-19, we haven’t heard much about the project. Disney had planned to incorporate a new narrator and a “light of history” guide that would flow through all the scenes of the journey.
At Hollywood Studios, we only have one important thing waiting for us, and that is it Barbecue Roundup Rodeo, the dining room dining option currently under construction at Toy Story Land. Although we’ve noticed some progress in the new restaurant, we don’t know when it will open.
After the closing of Finding Nemo: The Musical in Animal Kingdom, the fate of the show was uncertain until “Finding Nemo: The Big Blue … and beyond!”, based on the original show i Looking for Dory, announced! Since the show’s announcement, we haven’t figured out an exact release date yet, but we can expect this show to be in 2022. Don’t worry – there will still be a lot of fan favorite songs!
Within the resorts and at home, a service for compatible Amazon Echo devices called Hey Disney! it is expected to arrive at both Disneyland and Disney World hotels in 2022, but we are not sure when it will happen. Will it reach all the resorts at once, or will it be a staggered debut? Only time will tell.
