DISCLOSURE: I was invited by the Walt Disney Company to attend the 2019 D23 Expo, however all opinions and over-use of exclamation points are 100% my own.
Inside the Disney Parks “Imagining Tomorrow, Today” Pavilion at the 2019 D23 Expo, visitors will be able to see what is coming next to the Disney Parks around the world.
While there are a lot of cool things to share, in this post we are going to focus on the additions coming to Walt Disney World with information from the Disney Parks Blog!
Let’s start with an all-new Star Wars vacation experience coming to Walt Disney World!
Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser will be a new, first-of-its-kind vacation experience where guests will check in for a two-night adventure aboard a glamorous starship.
Once onboard, guests will interact with characters and become active participants in stories that unfold around them on their galactic journey.
We were able to see a new model and incredible visuals of the starcruiser – called the Halcyon.
And then my heart stopped as we were shown a model of the multi-year transformation of Epcot complete with new experiences, “that will make the park more Disney, more family, more timeless, and more relevant” was unveiled.
The reinvention of Epcot will include several new additions, and the first one we learned about was Journey of Water, Inspired by “Moana.”
This first-ever attraction based on the Walt Disney Animation Studios hit film, “Moana,” will let guests interact with magical, living water in a beautiful and inspiring setting.
And this October, guests will be able to visualize all of the exciting plans for Epcot at a new experience center in the Odyssey Events Pavilion, called Walt Disney Imagineering presents the Epcot Experience.
Inside this first-of-its-kind offering within a Disney park, guests will discover engaging and interactive exhibits that allow you to step inside the relentless innovation, energy and excitement, and see some never-before-revealed details driving the future of Epcot all throughout this unprecedented period of transformation.
The Disney Parks pavilion also features other upcoming Walt Disney World attractions including TRON Lightcycle Run coming to Magic Kingdom Park as well as Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
If you’re excited about today’s announcements, there is still more to come!
