With new shows, first-of-their-kind character interactions, and the highly anticipated debut of Toy Story Land on the way, summer at the Walt Disney World Resort is shaping up to be “incredible!”
The Incredible Summer celebration will officially begin May 25 at the Walt Disney World Resort, with guests getting a chance to immerse themselves in their favorite Disney films in exciting new attractions, entertainment and more. Here’s what’s coming to each of the four parks:
An Incredible Tomorrowland Expo Begins at Magic Kingdom Park May 25th
Favorite Disney•Pixar Super Heroes will take over Tomorrowland from May 25th through September 3rd, as part of the Incredible Tomorrowland Expo that celebrates “all things super.” Guests can interact with Mr. Incredible, Frozone and other supers from Disney•Pixar’s “The Incredibles” and upcoming “Incredibles 2.” And, for the first time ever, guests will get to see Edna Mode. Tomorrowland will also be decked out with Incredibles décor and sounds from the film. Guests can also enjoy a “SUPER” dance party on the Rocket Tower Stage.
The Guardians of the Galaxy – Awesome Mix Live! Concert Series Begins June 9th
Star-Lord and Gamora from “Guardians of the Galaxy” will take guests on a musical journey through the cosmos in The Guardians of the Galaxy – Awesome Mix Live! concert series at the America Gardens Theater. Shows will feature tunes from Star-Lord’s Awesome Mixtapes, the two movie soundtracks. The group will take the stage five times daily, June 9th through August 19th.
UP! A Great Bird Adventure & Donald’s Dino-Bash! Begin at Disney’s Animal Kingdom’s Anniversary Celebration April 22nd
Disney’s Animal Kingdom will kick off their 20th anniversary celebration April 22nd, and will launch two new animal-themed experiences. Donald’s Dino-Bash! is a “dino-tastic” celebration where Donald Duck takes over Dinoland, U.S.A. to celebrate his recent discovery that ducks are descendants of dinosaurs. Feathered friends Scrooge McDuck and Launchpad McQuack and other friends of Donald will be on hand to meet guests. In addition to bringing his own decorating touch to the land, Donald will throw a nightly dance party where everyone is welcome to “shake their tail feathers.”
Also debuting April 22 is the new show, UP! A Great Bird Adventure, which features Russell and Dug from the Disney•Pixar animated film “UP.” In the new show, they’ll team up to discover species of birds from around the world.
Disney H20 Glow Party Nights Begin at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park June 21st
As shared earlier this week, Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon will join in on the Incredible Summer fun starting June 21, with new Disney H20 Glow party nights. The water park will transform on select evenings June 21st-August 11th, when a glow party takes over the park from 8 p.m.-11 p.m. Tickets go sale March 19th and are $55 per person plus tax for adults and $50 per person plus tax for children ages 3-9.

Toy Story Land Opens at Disney’s Hollywood Studios June 30th
One major highlight of “Incredible Summer” will be the grand opening of Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This new 11-acre land will shrink guests to the size of a toy and allow them to explore the fun and adventure of Andy’s backyard. There, guests can experience two new attractions: the family coaster Slinky Dog Dash and Alien Swirling Saucers. Toy Story Land also will feature an existing guest-favorite attraction, Toy Story Mania!, which will expand to add a third track into the rotation. The land’s Woody’s Lunch Box will be a new quick-service restaurant that will offer up tasty meals and old-fashioned soda floats to Toy Story Land guests.
