With the recent announcements about a new Spaced Themed restaurant by Mission Space and the addition of an E-ticket Guardians of the Galaxy ride probably where Universe of Energy exists right now. The Imagineer hinted that even more is coming to World Showcase in the form of additional attractions connecting the Disney movies to the Nation Pavilions. Using Frozen Ever After and the Arendelle expansion as a model, Disney plans on adding the Disneyland Paris Ratatouille ride to the vacant lot next to France. They will be updating the China 360 movie, and they hinted at more. The full details and 9 minute video announcement here…D23 2017 Announcements
What additions make the most sense?
- The Africa section is equivalent to three pavilions, so that would be easiest place to build and create something new. This might be too much of an overhaul.
- The easiest solution would be to add “Whole New World” Jasmine and Aladdin ride in the vacant lot between Japan and Morocco. The little meet and greet area in the back of the Morocco stores doesn’t really accommodate the Jasmine/Aladdin demand.
- Then there is the opening between Germany and Italy. From a movie standpoint – it would make sense to put a Pinocchio ride (Italy) or Tangled (Germany) and of course Snow White would be simple.
- My favorite option would be to add the Disneyland’s Alice and Wonderland to the United Kingdom area.
Let’s hope they keep expanding…
These are a few of my favorite things at Walt Disney World. I wish I didn’t have to pay a $600+ cover charge to enjoy the food. But nonetheless, I pay – and I enjoy.
Based on the chart below, it looks like Disney Animal Kingdom after Pandora opens will still have less High Quality Ride Capacity than Hollywood Studios. If Animal Kingdom sees a spike in their attendance and there will be a high demand for the new rides (Avatar: Flight of Passage & Na’vi River River Journey), then it seems that tiers are inevitable.

From animals to crowds. Wonderful sights to delicious food.
I don’t like eating on trash cans.
Comments welcome. Most attractions have a solid connection found in a wide variety of sources. Some of these attractions I haven’t been able to begin to guess.
THRC – Theoretical Hourly Ride Capacity
OHRC – Operational Hourly Ride Capacity (during a peak time)
FP+ allocation – is a pure guess at 70% based on observations.
% attendance – shows what percent of a daily population could actually book a FP+. So, with the Mine Train, only 24% of the people in a 60,000 population day could actually schedule a FP+ for this ride.
