Hold onto your Mickey ears, Disney lovers! Exciting times are on the horizon! Can you feel that magic in the air? It's the enchanting possibility of brand-new rides and attractions coming to Walt Disney World in 2024.


Whether you're planning an adult trip or a family vacation, we've got you covered from crowd calendars to tips and tricks!

We all know how long new rides and shows can take to come to fruition at Disney, so while a lot of these have been announced and we're hopeful for their release in 2024, in the end it's left up to the Imagineers and Production Crew to get these out by the proposed dates and only a few of the attractions and shows have estimated release dates planned for 2024.


Animal Kingdom

An entertaining show based on the animated hit "Zootopia" is set to grace the Tree of Life theater at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Replacing the classic "It’s Tough to Be A Bug", this new addition promises a delightful blend of learning and fun. Delve deeper into the world of anthropomorphic animals and join them in their hilarious adventure!

Epcot

Next on the list, gear up for an exhilarating journey! The Test Track in the EPCOT World Discovery Area is being reimagined. In collaboration with Chevrolet, the ride that has been a fan-favorite for years is getting a fantastic upgrade. This fresh iteration is designed keeping in mind the spirit of optimism from the original World of Motion, promising a heart-pounding journey like never before. Again, no announcement has been made for the estimated reopening date so this might be even later than 2024, but we can at least hope to hear some updates!

Hollywood Studios

Have you been following the Ahsoka show on Disney+? Ever since Clone Wars, Ahsoka has been a fan favorite so its no surprise the Ahsoka storyline is making its way to the Star Tours attraction in Hollywood Studios. This exciting addition gives you the chance to experience a bit of the show in real life, and is expect to come to life in spring 2024.

Magic Kingdom

Get ready to embark on an enchanting journey through the vibrant bayous with Princess Tiana herself! Splash Mountain, a beloved ride, is transforming into "Tiana’s Bayou Adventure". This immersive experience opening at both Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom Park and Disneyland, takes you on an adventure with Tiana, Naveen, and Louis the alligator as they prepare for a Mardi Gras celebration. The aroma of New Orleans, the jazz music, the bayou culture - it's all waiting for you in 2024!


For those with a penchant for pirate tales, the Pirates of the Caribbean Tavern will be a must-visit! And I must say, this is one of the major updates I am really excited for. Peg-Leg Pete is back, inviting us to a new Pirates of the Caribbean-themed lounge in Adventureland at Magic Kingdom Park. This extension of the Pirates of the Caribbean story promises an unforgettable experience.

Finally, the Country Bears Musical Jamboree is getting a much-anticipated refresh. Envision a delightful fusion of rockabilly, bluegrass, and country music styles as the endearing bears reinterpret your favorite Disney songs. This is not just an attraction; it's a homage to the classic musical revues in Nashville.
