Disney Is Radio-Silent About New Park Additions

Something weird is going on in the Disney Parks, and fans are determined to get to the bottom of it. Normally, Disney is very on top of announcing when Guests can expect new additions to land in the Parks. However, recently this standard has significantly slipped.

Theme Park reporter Scott Gustin compiled “A list of projects at WDW with timelines but w/o specific opening dates.” The list is as follows:


Shiki-Sai: Sushi Izakaya

Figment meet and greet


Journey of Water

Meet Mirabel at MK

World Celebration Neighborhood

Later this year:

Hatbox Ghost

EPCOT nighttime show

The Cake Bake Shop

Disney Springs:

Later this year:

Summer House on the Lake

EET at Disney Springs

It really is so strange that Disney has not given fans a clear date for when any of these offerings will be opening. Hopefully, Disney sticks to their word and starts revealing information soon.
