Have you started thinking about those summer vacation plans yet? Now is the time to start planning! This year is going to be one INCREDIBLE SUMMER! Disney has just released the plans for summer and it sounds like they are setting us up for adventure. Hard to tell if they are new movie titles or Disney experiences with the themes such as: The Incredibles Take Over Tomorrowland, The Guardians of the Galaxy Take the Stage, “Adventurers Meet UP! A Great Bird Adventure,” and A “Dino-Tastic” Celebration for Donald Duck. Let’s not forget to mention this summer will be the hugely anticipated Toy Story Land opening at Disney’s Hollywood Studios®.
The Incredibles Take Over Tomorrowland will take place inside the Magic Kingdom Park. Each evening, you can enjoy a “SUPER” dance party! Who doesn’t love a incredible dance party? Great opportunity to hang out with Mr. Incredible, Elastigirl, and Frozone. Be on the lookout for Edna Mode, the superhero costume designer in her debut appearance. Also see the Incredibles in the soon-to-be blockbuster “Incredibles 2” opening in theaters June 15, 2018. AMC Disney Springs would be a great place to watch the “Incredibles 2.” It is a perfect place for a mid day break between roller coasters and character meet and greets.
The Guardians of the Galaxy Take the Stage at Epcot. Take a journey through the cosmos with StarLord and Gamora from “The Guardians of the Galaxy” as they join an alien band. The party will feature hits from the two movies’ soundtracks and builds anticipation for a new Epcot Guardians of the Galaxy attraction.
As Disney’s Animal Kingdom celebrates its 20th anniversary there will be two new experiences. Discover bird species from around the world at a new show staring Senior Wilderness Explorer Russell and his furry friend Dug called “Adventurers Meet UP! A Great Bird Adventure.” Speaking of birds, some people would say Donald Duck is a great bird adventure himself. However, Animal Kingdom is celebrating Donald Duck in all of his specialness. A “Dino-Tastic” Celebration for Donald Duck. Donald is clearly a fan favorite and I can’t wait to see the new show in Dinoland, U.S.A.
Toy Story Land is the major highlight of the “Incredible Summer!” This will be a new 11-acre area that will shrink guests to the size of a toy and let them explore the fun and adventure of Andy’s backyard. Toy Story Land will feature an existing guest favorite, Toy Story Mania!. It will be expanded to add a third track into the rotation. Slinky Dog Dash will be a fun family coaster for all to enjoy. Another adventure will be called Alien Swirling Saucers. Don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy an old-fashioned soda float or tasty meal at the land’s newest quick service called Woody’s Lunch Box. Opening day has not yet been announced. Once Upon A Vacation Blog will post all the details as soon as we know!
