"We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths." - Walt Disney

With the New Year fast approaching, let's take a look at the coming attractions at Walt Disney World Resort in 2018.

Toy Story Land

Arguably the most anticipated new attraction of 2018, Toy Story Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios will transport guests into the world of Buzz and Woody.  There will be two new attractions in this 11-acre expansion to the Studios: the Slinky Dog Dash family coaster and the Alien Swirling Saucers.  This much needed addition to DHS will hopefully help turn the current four-attraction park into a must-visit park once more.

Up Themed Show

The Wonders of Life show at Disney's Animal Kingdom will be replaced by an UP themed show that will feature Russell and Dug as they discover species of birds from around the world.  I know some folks out there aren't fans of IPs taking over WDW, but honestly, I think this one make a lot of sense and can really help boast the attendance for the show.

Cirque du Soleil

With La Nouba closing at the end of 2017, Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group and the Walt Disney Company are teaming up again to pay tribute to Disney's vast animation history.  Daniel Lamarre, President and CEO of Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group, said, "We are incredibly inspired by Disney's immerse creative universe.  We are convinced that bringing Disney's magic to life on stage will touch audiences and bring them back to their childhood."
