A Look at New Disney Attractions & Experiences Underway at Parks Around the World

As Josh D’Amaro, Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, announced recently at Destination D23, Disney is expanding its parks over the next decade and beyond.

“Over the next decade, we’re going to have more projects underway than at any point in our history,” he said. “Our sole purpose is to give you more and more of what you love about a Disney experience. And then surprise and delight you with things you never dreamed possible.”

Take a look at some of the new Disney attractions, rides, hotels, and experiences recently opened or coming to parks around the world.

Shanghai Disney Resort

Already filled with once-in-a-lifetime experiences that are authentically Disney and distinctly Chinese, Shanghai Disney Resort continues to raise the bar with new and exciting attractions, hotels and more.


As guests step inside Zootopia at Shanghai Disneyland, they will be fully immersed in the world of the Walt Disney Animation Studios film, “Zootopia.” Upon entering the newest attraction, Zootopia: Hot Pursuit, guests will have the opportunity to become rookie police officers assigned to search for the missing superstar, Gazelle, alongside fellow officers Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde. On their search, guests will travel through some of Zootopia’s iconic districts, including Tundra Town, Sahara Square, and the Rainforest District. This new themed land features live entertainment experiences and opportunities to interact with some of your favorite characters from the film.

This land is set to open in late 2023.

New Themed Hotel

Guests will soon be able to experience an all-new, themed hotel built off the shores of Wishing Star Lake. The hotel will feature Art Nouveau architectural elements, while staying true to the early 20th century styles found throughout Shanghai. Guests will have a fantastic view of the park while also being able to enjoy the outdoor recreation opportunities at Wishing Star Lake.

Although we’re keeping the theme under wraps for now, guests will find some familiar faces and unique Disney touches to make each trip memorable, fun and full of magic.

We’ve broken ground on construction for this addition, so check back soon for the latest updates!

This new themed port will feature restaurants, a shop and several new family-friendly attractions. Guests will also be able to stay in Fantasy Springs at our newest in-park luxury hotel. The hotel will be behind the Bayside Station, so guests can easily access the monorail to travel throughout the park.

Space Mountain

Space Mountain has been a favorite at Tokyo Disney Resort since 1983, but we’re creating an all-new Space Mountain experience that will delight thrill-seekers and roller coaster aficionados alike. The indoor roller coaster will include enhanced special effects and optimized performance.

One of the most popular and most visited theme parks in the world is the Walt Disney World Resort. Here, innovation never stops with several new attractions coming soon to this popular Florida destination.

Splash Mountain is getting a complete makeover with help from Princess Tiana. This “Princess and the Frog”-themed water attraction will be located in the Magic Kingdom and is the perfect way to tell the inspirational story of Tiana while taking a trip through the bayou, seeing some familiar faces, and singing favorite songs.

Tiana’s Bayou Adventure is expected to open in late 2024.

Moana Journey of Water

The Journey of Water attraction is a self-guided, self-paced experience where guests can interact with water and learn about the water cycle in a fun and playful way. Watch for familiar faces like Pua and Hei Hei, high five the water just like Moana does in the movie and get splashed by a crashing wave if you want to cool down.

Innovation at an International Level

With many new attractions and experiences hitting parks and resorts around the world, there is much more on the horizon for all 12 of Disney’s parks.

Leading the evolution of Disney’s guest experience, Josh D’Amaro spends a significant amount of his time in the parks himself. D’Amaro noted in a recent interview, “I spend a lot of time in the theme parks. If I’m not in a meeting, that’s my office.” He spoke about the importance of input from guests and cast members to help make decisions and “make sure the places that we run continue to be the most special places in the world.”
