There are way to many exciting announcements so today is going to be a this week in Disney so i can cover all the exciting moments happening in the world of Disney!
Starting off with the most anticipate news for me and a lot of others…CEO Bob Iger announced that Disneyland and Walt Disney World Star Wars Lands will be opening in 2019! Honestly, when he announced it i freaked! I cannot wait to step inside a new galaxy especially one where i can take control of the one and only Millennium Falcon!
Walt Disney World:
PANDORA! Pandora-The World of Avatar is said to open May 27 at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. This land will transport guests into a world with floating mountains, bioluminescent plants and of course take us on a one and only journey on the Na’vi River.
Happily Ever After! Happily Ever After a Nighttime spectacular will debut at the Magic Kingdom May 12. This is a show all about adventures that our favorite Disney characters have taken to achieve their dreams. Some magical moments we can look forward to are Moana, Brave, Big Hero 6, Zootopia, Princess and the Frog, Aladdin and so many more!
Rivers of Light! Rivers of lights making its debut in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Feb 17. Its obviously an after dark entertainment combines live performances with floating set pieces, music, fountains and so much more magic! It’ll celebrate animals and nature with an uplifting lantern ceremony filled with symbolism throughout the story.
Its a very special year for Disneyland Paris because April 12, 2017 marks their 25th anniversary which means an anniversary party will be taking over the park! New shows, outfits, foods, decor and of course new merchandise. La Chateau de la Belle au Bois Dormant is a feature of the new illuminations nighttime show. The celebration will also be in a galaxy far far away with the reopening of Star Tours: The Adventure Continues and to make things even more out of this world Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain will be bringing some magic to Space Mountain. Honestly that is what i am most looking forward to because Hyperspace Mt. is already just like DLP Space MT but now combining two amazing things together mind blown.
