New Things Coming to Disney World: Master List

disney master list

Things are always changing at Disney World. New rides, attractions, resorts, and more are always being announced.

Sometimes I can't even keep up with it (and it's my job to keep up with it!). I have created this master list of all new things coming to the Disney World parks that have been officially released by Disney.

This page is updated as announcements are made, so bookmark it for quick access to all things new at Disney World.
