Disney World in 2022
Here are the top 10 things to need to keep in mind if you visit Disney World in 2022:
1. The most awaited ride is here
Indeed, we are talking about Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, a roller coaster. In May 2022, the park announced that the most-awaited ride was finally here.
It’s not like the usual roller coaster you ride in other parks. Instead, it’s an Omni-coaster that can take you in any direction with the biggest indoor rise that the world has ever seen.
If you like to be part of an adrenaline-pumping ride, it’s the best one to try. However, check the conditions and availability before your visit.
2. Hotels are going to be magical with Alexa
Disney hotels are already magical, with stunning features that you cannot find elsewhere in the world. But this year, Disney has planned to improve your experience with Alexa voice assistants that speak like Disney characters.
With Alexa voice command, you can control lights, and curtains, get to know about bus schedules, various attractions of the park, etc.
It makes your work easy, and the magical Disney character’s voice provides a much-needed theme experience and never allows you to forget that you are in the Disney world.
3. Finding Nemo and the Return of Fantasmic
Finding Nemo is the most popular Disney world stage show, and the team of Frozen 2 made it mesmerizing.
Sadly, the show was closed by the park for two years. There are a few updates that Finding Nemo will be restarting this year, but there are no confirmed dates.
Return Of Fantasmic is another spectacular show that used to be the Hollywood theme park’s heartbeat. But the place where shows used to happen is under construction.
The show will be back in 2022; it may not be as good as it used to be, but let’s hope for the best.
4. Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser
It was a huge move when Disney opened a new attraction resort in March 2022. It’s completely based on Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, and it will be a unique experience for any Star Wars fan.
With the fantastic theme, the building also connects you with Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, where you can explore the park to enjoy restaurants, bars, and more. The place is functional, and you can find the details on the Disney app.
5. The crowd is returning
What’s better than meeting like-minded people equally interested in Disney themes? In May 2022, the park has noticed the greatest number of visitors since its closure in 2020. Now you don’t have to take care of social distance, and even you don’t need a mask if you a vaccinated.
Make sure to keep documents related to vaccinations handy to save yourself from hassle. If you browse the recent park videos, you will find that it looks more interesting and colorful than it used to.
6. Halloween events
Imagine getting to Mickey’s Halloween party and enjoying it late at night. It was one of the coolest attractions that most people talked about. If you are a Halloween fan, the wait will be over in August 2022.
Recently, Disney World announced they would be restarting the Halloween parties in August with additional benefits. The update seems interesting, don’t forget to check the availability while planning your trip.
7. Tech update
Disney world will be technically advanced in 2022 with the new MagicBand+. Recently, in May 2022, a prototype leaked showing the band’s first look.
Until now, the band’s functionality is unclear, but it’s assumed that it may include a voice command feature that will help you navigate, connect with your smartphone, or, who knows, it may hold your tickets and passes.
With the reveal of Magicband+ and Alexa update, it’s clear that technology will play an important role in further updates of Disney world. Let’s see what more surprises Disney holds for the guests.
8. Epcot festivals throughout the year
Another way that Disney attracts guests is through seasonal events in Epcot theme park. The season started with the International Festival of the Arts, from Jan 14 to Feb 21. You can currently be a part of the International Flower and Garden Festival, which started on March 2 and will continue till July 4, followed by a series of festivals that runs throughout the year.
Not to forget that Finding Nemo, Return of Fantasmic, and Halloween shows are scheduled to start this year.
9. It continues to grow
Many construction projects were pending because of the lockdown, and the attractions that were supposed to be functional till now are still under construction. However, it’s good to see that Disney is expediting the process, and most constructions will be completed this year.
You might also find some hard-to-digest surprises in early January 2023. There are no specific announcements yet, but the pace of construction reveals that something huge is coming.
10. Tron Coaster
With some other projects, the Tron coaster is also under construction, and it will be the next biggest ride in Disney World after the Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.
The construction is going strong, but you may not be able to enjoy the Tron coaster in 2022. One thing is pretty sure that Disney world will be a fantastic place for roller coaster lovers.
With all these recent updates, Disney world is planning to return to normal, which will be more magical. Until now, 2022 is proven to be worth the park’s worth, and it will be fantastic.
Last but not the least, we cannot ignore the innumerable food options across Disney theme parks, making dining experiences bigger and better every day!
