Our minds are blown. Magic Kingdom is getting an entirely new expansion.
D23 just blew everyone’s minds. We all predicted there would be updates for Animal Kingdom (and there are HUGE ones). But none of us predicted what is up Disney’s sleeves for the Magic Kingdom.
That’s right. Magic Kingdom is getting an expansion. The D23 team said that this expansion came from imagining what could lie beyond Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.
One of the things that could lie beyond Big Thunder Mountain is Coco. This potential expansion will be set in Santa Cecilia, and the inhabitants will be celebrating Día de Muertos.
It is amazing that instead of a ride retheme in Mexico in Epcot Coco could be getting an entire area of the park!
Beyond Big Thunder Mountain, we could also have another amazing new place to visit. Guests will be able to enter the world of Encanto! This was alluded to earlier this year, and it looks like it is coming true!
It seems as if fans are going to get to talk about Bruno in the parks. Maybe we will even find him there!
Last but not least, one of the things that could lie beyond Big Thunder Mountain is a Villains Land. WHAT! It would be amazing to be able to take a walk on the bad side, wouldn’t it?
Disney had concept art to share with us, and it looks just magical. It will be awesome to see what develops!
Wow. This is phenomenal news. Be sure to follow along with us at the Kenny the Pirate writing team because details are sure to emerge about each of the places that could be popping up in this magical new world beyond Big Thunder Mountain Railroad!
