Whether you’ve been to Walt Disney World once, twice, or a thousand times, you know that one of the most exciting parts about your upcoming trip is getting a chance to experience the latest and greatest attractions, restaurants, and nighttime spectaculars! Lately, buckets of pixie dust have been found being spread around the parks to help get these new arrivals in tip-top shape in time for the 50th Anniversary Celebration! So, let’s take a look at what the most magical place on earth has in store for your grand arrival!
Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure
Are you ready to shrink down to the size of a rat and take a culinary tour with the adorable Chef Remy? Based on Disney and Pixar’s beloved film, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure will have you racing across Gusteau’s infamous kitchen floor on a revolutionary trackless ride vehicle! Disney Imagineers pulled out all the stops with this attraction, creating a true sensory experience! If you’re not afraid of a few tiny spoilers, be sure to check out this rattastic sneak peek below!
La Crêperie de Paris
Along with Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure comes an entire historic transformation to the France Pavilion, including the delicious addition of La Crêperie de Paris, a new table and quick-service dining location. This divine creperie will feature a menu from celebrity chef Jérôme Bocuse, pulling inspiration from the Brittany region of France. While we do not have an opening date for this delectable new addition just yet, we suspect that it will debut around the same time as Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure. Who knows, maybe even on the same day! Until then, we will just have to daydream about getting our paws wrapped around some savory galettes and sweet crêpes!
Tron Lightcycle Rower Run
Coming to Magic Kingdom’s Tomorrowland is a new semi-enclosed coaster-style attraction that allows riders to board a train of two-wheeled Lightcycles for a thrilling race around The Grid. If you haven’t already guessed… we’re talking about the TRON Lightcycle Power Run… and it is a groundbreaker! Reaching top speeds of over 60 miles per hour, this marks Walt Disney World’s fastest roller coaster yet! So, if you’re a thrill-seeker-in-the-making, be sure to jump aboard your motorbike, grab the handlebars tight, and hang on for a once-in-a-lifetime high-octane ride-of-your-life through a digital sci-fi frontier!
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort’s Moana Makeover
If you read our Top 10 Best Smells of Walt Disney World, you know just how coconuts we are about Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort! A vibrant showplace of tropical décor, this tiki haven is one of Walt Disney World’s 1971 Opening Day flagship resorts. Over the years, the “Poly” has seen its fair share of updates and refurbs. However, this one is more than just a standard update! It has caught a case of Moana-madness, from flooring to furnishings! Most updates have been kept under wraps, however from what we have heard the words “inspired by” are key! We’re likely to see an updated color palette upon the walls, fun throw pillows, more Moana carpeting in the hallways, and perhaps a little concept art strown about.
We’re certain guests will be dazzled and delighted as they enter the new and improved Poly for the very first time. We can already picture Maua waiting in the wings, sporting a big grin from ear to ear and delivering an iconic “you’re welcome” to each new arrival.
Epcot’s World Showcase Lagoon is getting an all-new nighttime spectacular, Harmonious. Disney has gone bold by calling this the most ambitious nighttime show they have ever produced. Wow… talk about doubling down! I mean, have you seen Happily Ever After?!?!
Harmonious will be a tribute to the power of story and song that unite us, leveraging familiar music and visuals from across Disney and artists around the globe. This musical dreamscape of Dis-culture will showcase five moveable six-story floating platforms, intelligent lights, lasers, fountains, pyrotechnics, 25-foot LED walls, and a high-density water curtain. With the power and potential this new show has to tell a story of global connection and celebration, this innovative display promises to be a transformative experience. Based upon everything we have seen and heard thus far, we have no doubt!
