New Experiences Coming to WDW Based on Upcoming Films
This Fall, Disney will be unveiling two new experiences at Walt Disney World to promote its upcoming films, “Wreck-It Ralph 2: Ralph Breaks the Internet” and “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms”.
Ralph Breaks VR
Last winter, we were introduced to “Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire”, a ground-breaking virtual reality (VR) experience created by ILMxLAB and The VOID. This experience is located at Disney Springs in Walt Disney World, sandwiched in between Once Upon a Toy and Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. I had the opportunity to experience “Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire” earlier this year and I cannot recommend it enough!
Disney Parks Blog recently announced that a new VR experience will be coming to The VOID beginning this fall! Introducing “Ralph Breaks VR”, an original adventure based on the upcoming film “Wreck-It Ralph 2: Ralph Breaks the Internet” which debuts in theaters on November 21st. “Ralph Breaks VR” will immerse guests into the world of the internet and online gaming and will feature appearances from Wreck-It Ralph and Vanellope. ILMxLAB and The VOID are collaborating on this project once again to bring this amazing immersive world to life!
A few people have commented on the original Disney Parks Blog announcement asking if this means “Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire” is being replaced, which is something I was concerned about as well. Thomas Smith (Editorial Content Director, Disney Parks) replied to one of the comments stating, “…Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire will not be going away. Keep checking back here for future updates.” Phew!
The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Sneak Peek
Disney Parks Blog recently announced that starting October 5th, guests can get a 12-minute sneak peek of “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This sneak peek will temporarily replace the One Man’s Dream film in the Walt Disney Presents attraction in order to promote the film, which will debut in theaters on November 2nd.
In “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms”, we follow the journey of Clara who finds herself lost in a mysterious parallel world. There she meets a soldier named Phillip, a gang of mice, and the regents of three realms: Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers, and Land of Sweets. In order to restore harmony to the realms, Clara and Phillip must journey to the fourth realm and face its ruling tyrant, Mother Ginger. Check out the trailer!
Don’t forget to catch these two upcoming films in theaters this November!
