Walt Disney World Resort Replace for September 20 – 26, 2022
Author’s Notice, Information & Views
As Adrienne Vincent-Phoenix talked about in final week’s Walt Disney World Resort Replace, I used to be unable to attend the 2022 D23 Expo in Anaheim this yr due to a previous dedication (extra about that in a second). So, due to Adrienne for overlaying the occasion and offering our readers with the surprisingly little information and what Disney shared of Imagineering’s blue sky enthusiastic about Walt Disney World Resort. I will not rehash the bulletins: learn final week’s Replace right here.
Because the Florida employees author for MousePlanet, maybe probably the most stunning facet of catching up on the D23 Expo bulletins this yr is contemplating the tasks we already find out about but the place Disney apparently stated nothing on the occasion. For instance, over in EPCOT, the Play! pavilion was introduced on the 2019 D23 Expo because the substitute for the shuttered Wonders of Life/Competition pavilion, and once I had an opportunity to interview Imagineer Zach Riddley concerning the on-going EPCOT transformation again when Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind opened this previous spring, he confirmed that the pavilion was nonetheless within the park’s plans, however D23 Expo supplied no new point out. At Magic Kingdom, Disney introduced that solid members are coaching for the return of the Walt Disney World Railroad, however no opening date (or season) has but been introduced. At Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the brand new Roundup Rodeo BBQ in Toy Story Land nonetheless doesn’t have a gap date, nor does the return of the improved model of Fantasmic! that the inventive crew was excited to speak about on the “fiftieth Continues” media occasion I attended in reference to the opening of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind this previous spring. There are extra matters like that, some have a tendency towards smaller-scale tasks, and I acknowledge that many smaller tasks are usually not the topic of D23 Expo bulletins.
I’m additionally considerably shocked that there have been no main dialogue about how The Walt Disney Firm plans to have fun its one centesimal anniversary at Walt Disney World. The nighttime spectacular changing Harmonious at EPCOT was talked about as a part of the plan, and, as I perceive it, Disneyland Resort will function a extra full celebration. However, having stated that, the eighteen month “World’s Most Magical Celebration” of Walt Disney World’s fiftieth anniversary ends within the spring, leaving open the query of what is subsequent? Numerous Florida park-goers have been clamoring for a brand new (or any) nighttime parade at Magic Kingdom, for instance, however for the reason that Major Road Electrical Parade final “glowed away” from Florida years earlier than the worldwide pandemic (and, sure, it glowed a couple of extra instances in California since then, together with this previous summer season), the one nighttime parades on the park have been throughout onerous ticket occasions like Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Celebration.
Maybe when The Walt Disney Firm’s new fiscal yr begins on October 1, which can be the fortieth anniversary of the opening of EPCOT, we’ll hear some extra information. I remained satisfied that there are extra bulletins to return in some unspecified time in the future, as I wrote repeatedly on this house within the weeks main as much as D23 Expo, the competitors up the street at Common Orlando Resort is ramping up with heavy capital funding in its Epic Universe park, so previous expertise means that Disney will announce some new capital-intensive venture to maintain up the theme park arms race. Perhaps all that blue sky dialogue Adrienne lined was setting the stage for such an announcement, or possibly one thing else is ready within the wings, or fill in your greatest guess about how Disney is planning for 2025 and past in Central Florida. Maybe Disney’s on-going negotiations with Comcast, proprietor of Common, over the honest market worth of Hulu to finish its transaction to acquire 100% management of the streaming service determine into this combine too. Keep tuned.

As for my prior dedication, earlier this yr I made a decision to guide the September 5-12 crusing of Disney Marvel from Vancouver, Canada to Alaska. Merely put, it was a completely wonderful expertise. The mixture of the breathtaking Alaskan surroundings and the Port Adventures I picked, the luck of extraordinarily good climate, together with the top-notch service supplied by the Disney Cruise Line solid members aboard the ship supplied a trip expertise that I’m not positive how I’ll presumably high. And talking of top-notch service, a particular shoutout to Ricardo from Portugal, my brunch and dinner server at Palo on Disney Marvel, who I consider might have been the most effective Disney Solid Member I’ve interacted with at any Disney park, resort, or expertise wherever on the planet!
