Earlier today, we told you about a new Star Wars™-themed land that is coming to both Disneyland® Park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios® (Click here for more details). Well, we have more exciting news to share about other new lands, entertainment, and experiences coming soon to the domestic Disney Parks.
Here’s a brief recap of what’s to come:
Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios®
Get ready to head “to infinity and beyond” as you step into the world of one of Disney•Pixar’s most famous films, Toy Story! As you enter Toy Story Land, you’ll be shrunk to the size of Woody and Buddy as you wander through Andy’s oversized toys.
The new land will feature two new rides and an expansion of a guest favorite:
- A family-friendly roller coaster enjoyed on the back of Slinky Dog.
- Alien saucer attraction in which the little green aliens take guests around for a spin.
- Addition of a 3rd track for the current Toy Story Mania® attraction!
Disney’s Animal Kingdom® After Dark and Pandora – The World of AVATAR
As announced previously, work continues on the largest expansion in the park’s history. Soon, guests will be immersed into the world of Pandora, and the entire park will transform after dark with new nighttime entertainment experiences!
Details of the expansion include:
- Scheduled to debut in Spring 2016, “Rivers of Light” will bring the Discovery River to life with live music, floating lanterns, swirling animal imagery and water screens unlike anything ever seen in a Disney Park.
- Kilimanjaro Safaris® will be expanded next Spring to include a new nighttime adventure. Keep watch for two new species to the attraction – African wild dogs and hyenas!
- Work continues on Pandora – The World of AVATAR. This new land will include floating mountains, a bioluminescent forest, and a new E-ticket attraction called AVATAR Flight of Passage.
