When it comes to new additions at the Disney Parks, Disneyland Resort has had so much energy lately.
It has constantly been receiving new and exciting attractions for Guests, especially last year’s opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. As Walt Disney himself said, “Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world.” So lets take a look at everything NEW coming to Disneyland and Disney California Adventure over the next few years!
While Disneyland has not released an official timeline for the debut of all of these new attractions, we have put together a timeline of our own based on the most accurate information we gathered.
The new Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure was originally supposed to open in summer 2020, but due to a delay in construction caused by the pandemic it has since been pushed back. However we have been following along with construction updates and it is likely that the new Spider-Man themed attraction at Avengers Campus will be the first new attraction the park will receive once they reopen.
Web Slingers: A Spider-Man Adventure, is described by Disney as,
Embark on an action-packed adventure alongside the amazing Spider-Man! When Peter Parker’s helpful but otherwise buggy Spider-Bots get stuck in replication mode and escape from a WEB Workshop, Spider-Man must stop the rampaging robots before they wreak total techno-havoc across Avengers Campus. Problem is, they’re rapidly leveling up and becoming tough to beat!
Your task? Hop aboard a WEB Slinger vehicle and help weave a frenzied web to trap these friendly neighborhood sidekicks in true Spidey style. It’s up to you to unleash your inner hero and save the Campus from complete chaos!
Perfect for up-and-coming recruits—with no height restrictions.
This family-friendly attraction sounds unique and exciting! While there is another E-Ticket attraction slated for the Avengers Campus that we are also excited for, we do not have any official details yet. So we think this will be the last new attraction on this list to open, especially since Disney previously announced that the E-Ticket attraction will open with the “phase 2” of the opening of Avengers Campus, whereas Web Slingers will open in “phase 1.”
Splash Mountain Retheme
The next new attraction to debut will most likely be the rethemed Splash Mountain to Princess and the Frog. Construction has not yet started at Disneyland on this change over, but because this is a retheme and not a new attraction built from the ground up this could take less time than others on this list.
No offical name for this attraction has been announced but we do have a few details from the official Disney announcement,
We pick up this story after the final kiss, and join Princess Tiana and Louis on a musical adventure – featuring some of the powerful music from the film – as they prepare for their first-ever Mardi Gras performance.
We cannot wait to see what the Disney Imagineers have in store for us with this rethemed attraction! Keep in mind that Disney has said that Guests will have the chance to ride the current version of Splash Mountain again before it closes and is reimagined into The Princess and the Frog.
Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway
With a delayed opening in 2023 we have Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway rounding out this list. The attraction which is already open to great success in Disney World is currently under construction at Disneyland.
Disney describes Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway,
The darling duo are taking a leisurely drive to a picnic in their sporty roadster—with Engineer Goofy’s train following merrily along. Plot twist—you get to go, too! Climb aboard a runaway railway and embark on a whirlwind ride through a world where the rules of physics don’t apply. Prepare for unexpected twists, slapstick gags and mind-boggling transformations at every turn, as Mickey and Minnie try to save the day.
There’s no telling where this train is heading! This is an adventure for Mickey and Minnie fans of all ages.
This attraction will be a welcome addition to Mickey’s Toontown in Disneyland, as the theme fits the land perfectly.
And that is all of the new attractions (so far!) that are in the pipeline to debut at Disneyland Resort in the coming years. We do hope to see this list continue to grow, and as always keep your eyes here at Inside the Magic for all of the latest Disneyland news.
