Good evening, folks, Today I want to talk about some of the things that I think really stood out to me prior to D23! So, let’s get started, shall we?!
So, at Walt Disney World, they have announced that a new Pirates of the Caribbean tavern is being developed which features a return of Peg-Leg Pete also known as the Barker Bird.
The Journey of Water, inspired by Moana walkthrough attraction at EPCOT will have its grand open on October 16, 2023. This is a part when Moana will meet guests and interact with them. I bet that she is really excited to meet guests.
Test Track is set to be reimagined at EPCOT, and will take inspiration from World of Motion, which it replaced back in the ’90s. The ride Test Track is a ride like Radiator Springs Racers and it is the fastest ride at Disney World. I think this is actually really good. I can’t wait to see what it looks like in the future when I see it in person.
Soarin’ Over California will return temporarily to EPCOT this month. It will return on September 22nd for the 100th celebration that Epcot is having. You know, I really miss this kind of version in Disney’s California Adventure Park. I hope that it will come back for a long time in the future.
A “Zootopia” 3D show is in the works for the Tree of Life at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Disney announced at Destination D23 on Saturday. The show will replace “It’s Tough to Be a Bug.”
Disney has a “blue sky” project to reimagine Dinoland, U.S.A. into a Tropical American-themed land. This land will feature stories from the “Encanto” and “Indiana Jones” franchises. They also announced plans to retheme DINOSAUR to an Indiana Jones-inspired attraction as part of this shift.
Over at the Disneyland Resort…. They have announced a new look of a new e-ticket ride at DCA’s Avengers Campus called world-jumping vehicle. It’s the design that combines elements of Tony Stark’s time suits with Xandarian. I have heard that the attraction would have the villain King Thanos taking on the Avengers and the attraction itself could be like Rise of the Resistance. I am really interested of what the attraction will look like when its all set and done. I would love to see 3 rides all in Avengers Campus!!!
Also, a character name Ahsoka Tano will be coming to Star Tours at Disneyland, Anaheim, Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Disney World, and Disneyland Paris. I can’t wait to see the one in Anaheim in Spring 2024.
Overall, I think Disney wants people to get more excited and come to the parks all the time and make all the Disney parks busier. That is why Disney made some exciting announcements. This is to get more people to like Disney better than Universal which is building Epic Universe. I think that they want to make sure that Epic Universe does not take away all the guests from Disney.
So, what are your guys think about the announcements that I imagined?! I would love to hear your thoughts and comments down below!
Stay tuned for Disney updates.
