Walt Disney World

With major anniversaries over and major construction projects completed, 2024 at Walt Disney World unveils a "new" ride, resort renovations, and a year of events. 

Tiana's Bayou Adventure

By far the biggest thing coming to Disney World is the reimagining of Splash Mountain  with this Mardi Gras in the Bayou extravanganza. 

Featuring brand new animatronics, music and the smell of beignets, this ride includes  voices from the original Princess and the Frog cast.

OPEN June 30, 2024

Upgrading the wilderness,  the reconstruction of all 350 Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness  brings energy efficiency and a modern look.

Fort Wilderness Cabins Re-Imagining
