Get Ready for New Rides and Attractions at Walt Disney World
Headed to the parks later this year? You may get a chance to check out these exciting new attractions.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind
Zip over to Xandar in Disney’s groundbreaking new coaster, slated to open this summer.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will be located where Ellen’s Energy Adventure once stood. It signals many firsts for the park. First reverse-launch roller coaster. First Marvel Cinematic Universe attraction. First coaster to rotate 360 degrees to make sure you don’t miss a moment of action. Cosmic Rewind will also be one of the longest enclosed coasters anywhere. MCU fans won’t want to miss this one.
Moana Journey of Water
You’re sure to find serenity at the upcoming Moana Journey of Water attraction. A stately topiary of the goddess Te Fiti will look on as you take in the tropical vegetation, interactive fountains, and majestic waterfalls.
The scenic walkthrough attraction will stand in the former location of Innoventions West. And the water wonders don’t end there — the pathway exits into fishy fun at The Seas with Nemo & Friends.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom®
Finding Nemo: The Big Blue… and Beyond!
Animal Kingdom will also set out for the open seas in 2022.
Fans of Finding Nemo — The Musical, whose run ended in 2020, are eagerly awaiting the venue’s reopening. The reworked show will be set in Finding Dory’s Marine Life Institute. While the storyline will change, expect many of the beloved songs that made the first show a hit. These tunes include “In the Big Blue World” and “Go with the Flow,” composed by Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez of Frozen fame.
TRON Lightcycle / Run
Hold onto your handlebars! Get ready to explore the Grid when TRON Lightcycle / Run opens in Tomorrowland. The steel motorbike attraction will be Disney’s fastest coaster clocking in at 60 mph. Modeled after a popular ride in Shanghai Disneyland, it will launch riders through a neon-blue world as Daft Punk tunes pulse all around them.
Rest and Relaxation at Rosen
After a busy day of checking out all the new rides and attractions at Walt Disney World, board a free shuttle back to Rosen Inn Lake Buena Vista. As a Walt Disney World Good Neighbor® Hotel, we stand ready to make your Orlando vacation a magical one.
