Plan a Disney Vacation


Disney Nerds have been given a present early this year.

Disney regulars will be pleased to hear that the holidays are now upon us.

If you’re planning a Disney trip, there are many new surprises throughout the world’s Disney parks.

During its Destination D23 event held at the Orange County Convention Center in Florida this weekend, Disney announced new shows, attractions, hotels, and restaurants coming on its theme parks worldwide.

While not being a comprehensive guide, we decided to restrict ourselves to only include the most exciting forthcoming releases and plans.

The following is a list of the most fascinating upcoming releases and announcements for each of Disney’s locations around the world.

Also read our guide to why you should care about height requirements at Disney Parks.

Shows at Epcot

The shows at Epcot and Hollywood Studios have received much-needed updates, as well as a few new attractions. The Magic Kingdom will present a fresh “Mickey’s Magical Friendship Faire” based on “Frozen,” “Tangled,” and “The Princess and the Frog.” Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park will also resurrect an updated version of “Finding Nemo: The Musical”.

Epcot is still growing.

The entrance to the park, which is a huge sphere that you walk through to get in, is getting a makeover.

It will be called Dreamers Point and it will have a statue of Walt Disney.

This area will give people views of the park.

Disneyland Resort, California

Downtown Disney District glow up

A big renovation is happening at the retail center near Disney’s two California theme parks for the 2021 Christmas season. The old AMC 12 Theatres, which closed in 2018, will be turned into a new location with an open lawn, cultural elements, and more places to eat and shop.

Toontown refurbishment (Disneyland)

Disneyland is changing Mickey’s neighborhood.

The entrance to Mickey’s Toontown will open again in early 2023 as a free, open area with an interactive fountain and a tree with sculpted roots for kids to play around.

Disney’s international theme parks and cruise lines

Disney Wish entertainment and first sail (cruises)

On June 9, 2022, the long-awaited Disney Wish cruise ship will set sail on its maiden voyage.

Character lineup features Goofy and Captain Minnie alongside other beloveds.

In addition to two new stage musicals — one being a modernized adaptation of “The Little Mermaid” —the vessel boasts grand amenities such as a Star Wars-themed bar and 760-foot water ride (aptly named AquaMouse) plus so much more.

How to plan a Disney vacation

If all of these new rides, shows and attractions have made you eager to plan a Disney vacation for next year, start thinking about how you will pay for it.

After all, the popular belief that Disney trips are expensive is not without merit.

In addition to conventional vacation expenses such as hotels, airfare and transportation costs, you’ll also need to account for park tickets and food items (like Mickey Pretzels or Dole Whips).

You can take a trip to Disney for much less than it would cost if you paid for everything in cash.

You can use points and miles that you have saved up, as well as do some planning in advance. This can help you save a lot of money on your trip.
