If you’re planning to visit Walt Disney World in 2021, you’ll likely experience quite a few things you haven’t before. From new attractions to new restaurants and so much more, Walt Disney World will certainly look different (but no less magical!) when it turns 50.
Let’s chat about four ways your Walt Disney World vacation will look very different in 2021!
1. You Might Need a Map of Epcot
The multi-year changes include revamping the main entrance, reimagining several dining and shopping locations, adding an all-new PLAY! Pavilion, opening the Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, and bringing a Space themed restaurant to life!
With all of theses changes (and possibly continuing construction!), you might need a map to navigate the Park even if you’ve been many times!
2. You Might Experience Some New Attractions
Even though Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge just opened with its headline attraction Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, we’re already looking forward to the additional attractions coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. By early-2020, the Park will welcome TWO new attractions. On December 5, 2019, the highly-anticipated Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will open.
And in spring 2020, Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway will open in Hollywood Studios as Disney’s first Mickey-themed ride-through attraction.
In Magic Kingdom, TRON Lightcycle Run will open in Tomorrowland in time for Disney World’s 50th-anniversary celebration in 2021. This coaster is based on the TRON Power Lightcycle Run in Shanghai Disneyland, and we can hardly wait for it to open!
As we mentioned before, there are several new attractions and experiences coming to Epcot. We’re looking forward to the Moana-inspired Journey of Water…
…Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind…
…AND an attraction inspired by Mary Poppins!
Chances are there will be something — or many things — new for you to experience in the World of attractions come 2021!
3. You Might Discover a New Favorite Restaurant
Disney World will also soon introduce several new restaurants, a bunch of which will be located in Epcot (are you sensing a theme?). Soon, you’ll be able to try Space 220, Regal Eagle Smokehouse: Craft Drafts & Barbecue, and La Creperie de Paris.
Disney Springs will also welcome some new restaurants for us to enjoy. Not only will Disney Springs’ open its own Ample Hills Creamery location, but the new restaurant Beatrix is on the docket as well.
When Disney’s Riviera Resort opens this December, it will introduce several new restaurants for us to try.
The lineup of upcoming restaurants includes Bar Riva, Le Petit Cafe, Primo Piatto, and Topolino’s Terrace — Flavors of the Riviera, which will be located at the top of the Disney Vacation Club Resort.
4. You Might Sleep on a Murphy Bed
Speaking of Disney’s Riviera Resort, you just might sleep on a Murphy bed if you choose to stay in one of the resort’s Tower Studios.
These new studios will “feature flexible living space and a private balcony” and are priced lower than the Deluxe Studios and Villas at the Resort. This room category allows one to two guests all the amenities of a Deluxe stay but at a more affordable price point than other DVC room categories.
It’s safe to say there are a LOT of changes coming to Disney World by 2021, and we’ve only just scratched the surface. Which changes are you looking forward to most? Let us know in the comments below!
