Disney Has Further Confirmed THESE Projects for 2021 — But Left Out These 4

As we enter 2021, there’s a ton of new attractions we’re looking forward to in Disney World and around the rest of the world. 

Cosmic Rewind Construction

From a Marvel-themed hotel and a Snow White makeover to Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, we’re counting the days until we can experience Disney’s latest projects, but in a recent announcement of confirmed openings for 2021, we noticed a few major projects were missing from the schedule!  

All over the world (and on screens) Disney is making big moves this year. New movies, original series, rides, restaurants, and hotels are all taking shape and set to debut throughout 2021! 


With so much to look forward to, we’ve been eagerly tracking construction progress throughout the parks, and paying keen attention to any and all announcements, including the epic news drops from Investor Day 2020! 


Well, now Disney has dropped some more intel in the form of a D23 release, which confirms a slate of anticipated projects will definitely arrive this year, while also notably omitting a few big ones.

Confirmed Projects for 2021

In terms of confirmations, 2021 is shaping up to be a big year for Marvel, with the opening of Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure, and the world’s first Marvel-themed hotel, Disney’s Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel, opening at Disneyland Paris!

For rides, we’re happy to know we won’t have to wait too much longer to experience Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure at EPCOT, or the reimagining of Snow White Scary Adventures in Disneyland into the much less ominously titled Snow White’s Enchanted Wish!

Back in Disneyland Paris, the in-the-works Cars attraction also has a green light for 2021. 


And come nightfall, we’ll all be cheering along at EPCOT’S new nighttime spectacular, Harmonious, before too long!

Projects Not on the List, Previously Announced for 2021

Now, there are a few notable omissions from the D23 release.

TRON Construction

Some of the biggest and most anticipated rides in Disney World have been under construction for some time, including TRON Lightcycle Run in Magic Kingdom and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, in EPCOT.

In a recent report, it was noted that TRON was unlikely to make a debut during Disney World’s 50th anniversary this year.

We’re also wondering about the timeline for Space 220, the out-of-this-world restaurant set to land at EPCOT.

And speaking of out-of-this-world, the most interesting thing missing from this announcement is Galactic Starcruiser, the Star Wars hotel.

The Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, while shrouded in secrecy and intrigue, has clearly been humming along, and seemingly on track for a 2021 debut. 


Although these big projects are missing from the confirmations, it’s entirely possible that Disney is just being conservative with its timeline projections, especially considering the off-and-on closures of the parks. Case in point, spots like Gideon’s and Everglazed have both recently opened (with Gideon’s set to have it’s grand opening soon), but neither were mentioned on the list.

As always, we’ll continue to keep you updated with construction updates and opening announcements as we learn more!
