New And Upcoming Park Attractions At Walt Disney World

There are so many things being celebrated in 2019 at Walt Disney World that there really is no better time to visit than now!  Disney’s Hollywood Studios is celebrating a milestone achievement.  May 1, 2019 marks the 30th anniversary of this theme park. This milestone is being celebrated via new entertainment offerings throughout the park.  Disney’s Hollywood Studios is not the only theme park that is celebrating though.  Each of the remaining 3 theme parks is offering special attractions during the course of 2019!

Guests can enjoy Mickey & Minnie’s Surprise Celebration at Magic Kingdom Park now through September 30.  Besides being able to meet Mickey & Minnie dressed in their birthday best at the  Town Square Theater, guests can continue to party with the new “Move It! Shake It! MousekeDance It!” Street Party parade.  There is also an abundance of special merchandise as well as food & beverage offerings that have been perfected for the celebration!

Disney’s “The Lion King” turns 25 this year. (Can you believe it? I sure can’t!)  Guests can celebrate the 25th anniversary of this film at Disney’s Animal Kingdom through September 30 at the “Hakuna Matata Time Dance Party”.  There are also special  “Lion King”-themed photo ops that can be found throughout the park which are perfect for snapping photos.  Of course, guests can also watch a performance of the “Festival of the Lion King”.  Beginning this summer, the Tree of Life will awaken in the evenings with a new story celebrating “The Lion King”.  The new story will showcase moments from Simba’s journey in a beautiful artistic style set to music inspired by “The Lion King” score.

Celebrate over at EPCOT by attending the annual EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival, running now through June 3!  There are new festival offerings this year including four all-new Outdoor Kitchens which are serving some amazing food.  Where are my topiary fans?!  You will not want to miss the Bo Peep topiary!  There is also a new Play Full Garden which is presented by Advent Health.  The Garden Rocks concert series is back and has been expanded to offer performances every night of the week.  That’s right – concerts will be occurring 7 nights a week from both new and returning favorites such as TobyMac, Steven Curtis Chapman, and Colin Hay of Men at Work. From June 14 to August 18 the Guardians of the Galaxy – Awesome Mix Live! shows will make its return to the America Gardens Theatre in EPCOT.  This intergalactic concert allows guests to join Star-Lord, Gamora, and their alien band for an intergalactic concert!

With so much to offer, there is no better time than now to visit Walt Disney World Resort.  Let us know in the comments what you are most excited to experience!
