    Dear Moms~ I plan on coming to Disneyworld in July 2019. Would you happen to know if there are going to be any new rides/attractions opening by this time in Epcot or Hollywood Studios? Thank you!

    Hi Kristin,

    Walt Disney once said, "We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths." Well, there have been some SUPER exciting announcements about multiple new experiences on their way! Disney Imagineers are hard at work bringing these innovative ideas to life, and while many of them will take several years to complete, you may get to enjoy some of them next summer.

    A high-octane show featuring our favorite experienced race car and lots of his friends is set to open in early 2019. Lightning McQueen's Racing Academy will surely delight race fans of all ages! Want to know what it'd be like to step into a cartoon short? Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway will open at some point in 2019 and will be a wonderful chance for families to experience the unpredictable magic of a brand new cartoon adventure. With Goofy as your train engineer, what could possibly go wrong!? Of course, if you haven't yet visited the all new Toy Story Land, you'll definitely want to see what it's like to play in Andy's backyard in this incredibly fun new land, which includes two brand new attractions. Plus, don't forget the new Play Disney Parks app that helps turn old favorites into new adventures.

    With so many exciting things coming over the next few years, be sure to stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for updates, Kristin, and may your visit next July be the perfect mix of beloved traditions and new favorites!
