BIG Changes are Coming to WDW

Danny McBrideBlog

This month’s issue of WDW Magazine is all about the recent, current, and future construction/refurbishment projects in WDW.  In the words of Carl (our publisher who said the following in this issue’s introduction)…

“Oh, boy. This is going to be good.”

Have you seen all the changes going on at Walt Disney World? It’s truly incredible. Fantasyland is brand new, and quite frankly, awesome. Downtown Disney is changing so much they are changing the name, as well as Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Animal Kingdom is getting a major makeover, and Frozen is coming to Epcot. Change is everywhere you look.”

Change is a-comin’!

The central hub of Cinderella Castle has been receiving major renovations to expand further than ever before.  Redesigning this area will now provide guests with much more space to enjoy nighttime spectaculars like Celebrate the Magic and Wishes!



Moving on from the Magic Kingdom, let’s see what’s brewing in Epcot.

The Norway Pavilion is expanding and changing to make way for new Frozen elements!  In our “Changes & More at WDW” article, you can find out all there is to know about the upcoming Frozen attraction and meet-and-greet over in the World Showcase.

If you’ve been following along on our Facebook page, you’ll know that the Sorcerer’s Hat has been completely removed.  Come see what other Disney fans have to say about this!

There’s a lot of excitement surrounding Disney’s Animal Kingdom!  Bringing the land of Avatar, Pandora, to life is just one of the ongoing projects in this park that we just can’t wait to see.  In this month’s issue, read much more about Rivers of Light (construction of this new show on the water surrounding Discovery Island shown below).

After tremendous revamping and reimagining, Downtown Disney becomes Disney Springs!
