All the Updates from D23 Expo Parks Panel
Welcome of the final day of the D23 Expo and a recap of what might just be the BIGGEST, more IMPORTANT panel of them all, the Disney Parks panel. This is the panel where we heard ALL about the new lands, rides, changes coming to the Disney theme parks.
So what was discussed, what is leaving, staying, coming? To be honest there was just WAY too much for us to even try putting together a coherent recap, but you can actually watch the whole thing yourself thanks the wonderful Spokemayne who livestreamed the panel.
A few highlights include:
BIG changes coming to EPCOT including a rebranding to include 4 neighborhoods: World Celebration (Spaceship Earth Area), World Discovery (current home to Mission Pace), World Nature (home to Land, Seas, and upcoming Journey of Water, and World Showcase.
Star Wars: Galactic StarCruiser looks AMAZING.
New daytime parade, Magic Happens, coming to Disneyland featuring original music/song from Toddrick Hall and performed by Jordan Fisher.
New Disney Cruise Line ship "The Wish" and new port on a new island called Lighthouse Point.
New Target partnership will see Disney Stores, via Shop in Shops, in select Target locations nationwide and a new Target store coming to Walt Disney World.
Fun and exciting experiences coming to Walt Disney World for the upcoming 50th Anniversary.
Avenger's Campus will see a globally linked story across all three campus locations: DCA, Disneyland Paris, and Hong Kong Disneyland.
Like we said, there was A LOT to unpack here, so watch the livestream panel and let us know of the comments your thoughts on everything!
