If you’ve been to Disney World in Orlando, Florida before but you haven’t been yet this summer, then you should consider heading to the parks this summer because there’s all new experiences for you to enjoy!

  1. Toy Story Land: The most exciting thing going on this summer at Walt Disney World is an entirely new land at Hollywood Studios! Toy Story Land has (as you would expect) Toy Story themed rides like Slinky Dog Dash & Alien Swirling Saucers.  How great is that?
  2. H2O Glow Nights: There’s something new going on at Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, and that’s H2O Glow Nights! On certain nights in the summer you’ll get to enjoy the water park at night – and get much shorter lines!  There will also be character meet & greet opportunities with Buzz Lightyear, Woody & Jessie and – perhaps the best part for us adults – an adult only area with a bar serving drinks.  See more information about H2O Glow Nights here.
  3. UP! A Great Bird Adventure: This is not an entirely new attraction but rather a new version of the Flights & Wonder Show at the Asia section of Animal Kingdom. You’ll see Russell & Dug from the hit movie Up discover bird species from around the world.
  4. Donald’s Dino-Bash: Have a blast at the DinoLand, USA section of Animal Kingdom. Evidently Donald Duck recently discovered his bird ancestors were actually dinosaurs, so naturally he is celebrating this the only way anyone would: with a dance party.  The best part about Donald’s Dino-Bash to me is the opportunity to get meet & greets with rarely seen characters like Scrooge McDuck & Launchpad McQuack.  You’ll also get to see Chip ‘n Dale in new dino-inspired costumes.
  5. Guardians of the Galaxy – Awesome Mix Live!: Five times a day from June 9th through August 19th you’ll be able to see a new live show, “Guardians of the Galaxy – Awesome Mix Live!” America Gardens Theatre at Epcot. You can enjoy Star-Lord, Gamora & a six-piece alien (please note that this is not the actual Star-Lord and Gamora from the movie; in other words, don’t change your entire summer plans with the sole intention of meeting Chris Pratt as you will be disappointed).  You can enjoy dancing to some of the best hits from those tapes Peter Quill liked so much in the Guardians of the Galaxy
  6. An Incredible Tomorrowland Expo: Tomorrowland at Magic Kingdom will be décor & sounds from popular Pixar movie The Incredibles & its new sequel, The Incredibles 2. You’ll be able to interact with characters from the movies, like Mr. Incredible, Frozone and even Edna Mode, who has never appeared at Walt Disney World before.
  7. Animal Kingdom 20th Anniversary Gear: It’s Animal Kingdom’s 20th anniversary, and if you like collecting Disney memorabilia, you’re going to want to check out the 20th Anniversary gear that will be sold throughout the park.
