Walt Disney World Announced Summer Attraction Highlights!

At Magic Kingdom, guests will party with Mr. Incredible, Elastigirl, Frozone and for the first time get to see Edna Mode from Disney•Pixar’s “The Incredibles” and upcoming “Incredibles 2.”  These characters will interact with guests throughout the land and participate in a “SUPER” dance party on the Rocket Tower Stage.


Super Heroes take over the America Gardens Theatre at Epcot. Star-Lord and Gamora from the Guardians of the Galaxy will join an alien band, taking guests on a journey through the cosmos. The party will feature hits from Awesome Mixtapes 1 and 2 – fun and favorite tunes from the two movies’ soundtracks – building the anticipation for a new Epcot Guardians of the Galaxy attraction.

As Disney’s Animal Kingdom celebrates its 20th anniversary guest will be able to enjoy two super new experiences: A “dino-tastic” celebration where Donald Duck takes over Dinoland U.S.A. with prehistoric elements in a new and exciting character celebration; and Explorers Meet UP! A Great Bird Adventure, where Senior Wilderness Explorer Russell and his furry friend Dug, from the Disney•Pixar hit film “Up,” discover species of birds from around the world.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be the place to be with the ongoing reimagining of the park which takes guests to infinity and beyond, starting with Toy Story Land.

This new 11-acre land will transport guests into the adventurous outdoors of Andy’s backyard. Guests will experience two new attractions, including Slinky Dog Dash, a family-friendly coaster which will send riders dipping, dodging and dashing around turns and drops that Andy has created to stretch Slinky and his coils to the max.

This Pizza Planet toy play set is loaded with aliens circling about in their flying saucers pulling along rocket ships full of guests. The new land also will encompass – Toy Story Mania! – which has been expanded to add a third track to the existing popular attraction. Woody’s Lunch Box will be a new quick-service kiosk serving tasty meals and old-fashioned soda floats inside Toy Story Land.
