Things that are new at Disney World
Now that Walt Disney World is celebrating its 50th anniversary, no single thing in its universe that didn’t change in this half-century. Now also, it is planning a lot for the future.
With hotel changes, ride updates, and new attractions, there is much to talk about some big changes at the Walt Disney World as 2023 knocks at its doors. So, let’s now talk about some of the upcoming updates at Disney World.
1. Journey of Water – Inspired by Moana
One of the biggest attractions Disney fans have eagerly awaited is Journey of Water -Inspired by Moana. The new attraction at EPCOT will be an interactive attraction. Here, the guests can walk and play with water.
D23 Expo revealed that the opening date for Journey of Water would be in late 2023. In this Expo, officials also shared a Te Fiti sculpture that will be one of the primary installations in Journey of Water – Inspired by Moana.
2. TRON Coaster
Disney has continuously kept its fan hung at the edge whenever they saw the TRON Coaster under construction. This is one of the most awaited ride updates fans have been waiting for.
Most probably, the ride’s construction has finished because passengers were also voluntarily test-running it. Thus, the construction workers and Imagineers might take a few months to finish the landscaping and theming of the whole area.
3. CommuniCore Plaza and CommuniCore Hall
EPCOT is a seat of the sea of changes. Apart from Journey of Water, it is also seeing other changes. Ready to be inaugurated in 2023, CommuniCore Plaza and CommuniCore Hall are the two new places in EPCOT.
As we know, EPCOT is home to some of the best events and festivals in all of Disney World. Thus, these two zones will house some festival events and offer a ‘multi-use’ space.
While CommuniCore Hall is designed to be an indoor space, the CommuniCore Plaza is an outdoor space.
The first will house food experiences, galleries, exhibitions, and other indoor activities. It can also have areas designed for character meets, a mixology bar, and a demonstration kitchen. The outdoor space is mostly kept as a performance site for small or large concerts or other performances.
4. The Rest of World Celebration
Another update waiting to be inaugurated in 2023 is The Rest of World Celebration. It includes a Dreamers Point and some mesmerizing garden zone. Also, this will be the home to the newest statue of Walt Disney.
This is located at the center of the park. As it is closed for some time, it will be good to stroll through the area again. Also, the time required to travel from World Discovery to World Nature will be cut short once this area opens.
5. Figment Meet and Greet
Once again, an update for EPCOT; it seems like a line of innovations is waiting to be inaugurated in EPCOT in 2023.
Figment, the cute little dragon will be the new center of attraction in the character meet and greet at EPCOT. It’s been years since the little dragon made a public appearance. So, the news of him coming back excited the audience.
However, we do not know any particular date as to when it will make its return. But Disney officials have said it will not be later than late 2023.
6. The Cake Bake Shop
Disney’s Boardwalk is also home to newer updates and changes. The Cake Bake Shop is the latest table service restaurant opening in 2023 at Boardwalk.
The home state of the restaurant is Indiana, and its sweet treats are a treat to everyone. It will also have an afternoon tea service and many savory and sweet dishes.
7. Summer House on the Lake
Another restaurant that will come to Disney World in 2023 is the Summer House on the Lake. The name itself sounds exciting and seems to have come straight from an Agatha Christie novel without obviously the gory plot of those novels. This house will be at Disney Springs and will open in 2023. The tropical essence of the restaurant is very attractive.
The menu is currently set to be inspired by local cuisines of California. Let’s see what this restaurant’s menu will recharge new taste faculties.
8. The Hatbox Ghost
With Halloween around the corner, you might be excited to listen to some updates regarding the haunted world of Disney World! Well, it does sound spooky!
The Hatbox Ghost is an even better rendition than Haunted Mansion at Disneyland and will arrive at Magic Kingdom sometime around 2023.
This particular show was unique to Disneyland. But, as we said before, Disney World doesn’t like to sleep. It is a land of constant changes. Thus, it didn’t take them long to install their Hatbox Ghost in Disney World. So, wait till 2023’s Halloween to get spooked by this new ghost in the bag!
9. Happily Ever After Song with an updated show
This song left Magic Kingdom in September 2021. After that, it is coming back owing to the massive campaigning of the guests. A new nighttime spectacular will also come with the song. Whatever the newer make-over, the song will again chime all over the parks.
10. Replacing Harmonious
Harmonious started in late 2021, but now it will also be replaced. Owing to the 100th anniversary of Walt Disney Company, 2023 will witness the feature of a new fireworks show on World Showcase Lagoon.
So, these are some of the big updates humming in and around Disney World. Book your 2023 Disney World tickets without further ado to witness these beauties and grandeur.
