While we already know about Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure coming to France and a Mary Poppins attraction coming the U.K. in World Showcase, it got us thinking about what other attractions could be added to Disney’s world’s fair.
We’re taking a look at some rumored World Showcase attractions that we would be down to see!
Coco Mexico Overlay
As charming as The Three Caballeros are on the Gran Fiesta Tour, the attraction is pretty dated at this point. The boat ride through Mexican regions and culture formerly known as El Rio del Tiempo didn’t change much with the refurbishment besides adding the feathered musicians and their silly hijinks into it .
The bells began tolling for Gran Fiesta Tour once the animated hit Coco premiered in 2017. The movie is all about Mexican traditions, focusing primarily on the Dia de Muertos celebration of ancestors and features some catchy tunes to boot.
The film already has a presence in the Mexico pavilion through music with Mariachi Cobre retelling the story of Coco and through art with displays in the Mexican Folk Art Gallery. While rumors are mostly pointing to this being a simple overlay, we would love to see the Imagineers start from scratch and try and replicate the crazy environmental set-pieces of the Land of the Dead.
The Jungle Book Ride
An India pavilion has long been on a backlog of countries that we would love to see eventually make their way to World Showcase one day. The rumor mill is currently spinning that Imagineering has started developing an idea for the pavilion and that it would feature an attraction based off The Jungle Book.
According to rumors, this attraction would be yet another boat ride, but this one would utilize the same revolutionary technology as Shanghai Disneyland’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle for the Sunken Treasure attraction. No other attraction outside of the Shanghai park uses this kind of ride system, so it would be something pretty unique for a Disney attraction.
We could see being enveloped by humongous screens depicting the deep jungle and life-like Audio-Animatronics as a recipe for success in a Jungle Book-inspired attraction, but we’ll just have to wait and see if Disney confirms anything.
Rumored Brazil Attraction
Another long-rumored pavilion to be coming to World Showcase is Brazil. The country has shown up during the annual EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival as an outdoor kiosk, so we could certainly see this one paying off.
While the rumors have changed over the years, we would love to see Disney draw the crowds in with some type of attraction. Potential concepts have floated out there for another boat ride (maybe even one featuring the Three Caballeros again), but the field is wide open for anything.
This new pavilion could be a chance for Imagineering to buck the trend of World Showcase attractions and go in a different direction. Why not bring the enhanced motion vehicle ride system to EPCOT for an adventure through the Amazon rainforest or (to keep it family-friendly) a slower-moving dark ride using similar vehicles to Disneyland’s Alice in Wonderland or Pinocchio’s Daring Journey?
