It is true that 2023 is certainly going to be a year marked with beginnings and endings in Walt Disney World. For example, we will see fan-favorite log ride Splash Mountain close permanently. It will reopen as a rethemed attraction called Tianna’s Bayou Adventure. We will also see the end of the 50th Anniversary celebration with final showings of both Enchantment and Harmonious.

But, good things are coming as well. Roundup Rodeo BBQ will open providing a new dining experience for Disney’s Hollywood Studios. We will also finally get to experience TRON after years of watching its construction. EPCOT will continue taking shape with the opening of Journey of Water.

  1. Sosa’s was my husband’s go to hangout at Disney Springs and several husband’s while us wives shopped. He got to know the owner well as my husband is in Orlando several times a year on business. He’s being forced to close and I think that is wrong for a store that has been at DS for so long. We wish them lots of luck and will definitely miss them.
