The average return park goer goes to Walt Disney World once every three years. If you are that park goer it’s nice to know the new things to do at Disney World since 2017. This blog covers attractions, lands and entertainment. Two other posts, Walt Disney World’s New Restaurants 2017 – 2020 and Changes to Disney World’s Resorts and Transportation 2017 – 2020, will cover the rest.
I guess that we are the average park goers. We last went in January 2017 and are returning later this month. Therefore, most of what is listed will be new to us too. But we heavily researched this so that you can benefit from what we learned.
The Biggest New things to do at Disney World – The Lands
Immersive lands are probably the biggest new things to do at Disney World. When Disney World added Pandora – World of Avatar, Toy Story Land and Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge it allow you to step into and experience new worlds. This new, immersive philosophy of land building allows you to experience a single theme in a complete and supporting way. Each new land contains several major ride attractions. These three lands are our target experiences for our upcoming trip.
The Hot, New things to do at Disney World – Dance Parties
Three years ago we barely heard of a Disney dance party. Now four dance parties are included in our list of new things to do at Disney World. Kids seem to love the change to jump, twirl and clap to Disney characters providing a happy beat. Some even dance. However, it can be the happiest bit of mayhem in the park.
The Epcot International Festival of the Arts
We could call this new things to do at Disney World We Already Experienced and Loved. The festival runs from mid-January to mid-February. There are Broadway concerts, art exhibits, creative workshops, and lots of good food. This is one of the most interactive festivals at Epcot. It’s just my son and I on this trip so we will take advantage to take advantage of the clever photo ops that will put us into famous pictures. Mom can log into Memory Maker to check our progress.
