If you thought the last few years were busy for Disney, buckle up.
From new rides and a new private island to a brand new cruise ship, Dinsey’s got a lot in store for Disney World, Disneyland, and beyond in the next few years. Today we’re breaking down EVERYTHING coming to the Disney parks and beyond in 2022, 2023, and 2024!
During the 2022 D23 Expo, Disney announced a whole bunch of opening dates and shared information about upcoming projects. So just what is in store for the next few years? Well, the image below that Disney shared does a fairly good job of capturing most things that are on their way.
Let’s break it down.
Here are some of the big things on their list that are set to open in 2022:

In other words, the next few years are going to be BUSY. And that doesn’t even include announcements made about Disney movies, Marvel movies and series, Star Wars movies and series, Disney+, and beyond.
Now, keep in mind that these are the current dates announced by Disney for these projects, but dates and details are all subject to change. We’ve seen opening timelines change in the past, and it’s possible we could see that happen again.
We’ll be keeping an eye out for more updates and we’ll let you know what we find.
