A fifth dining location will be added to Epcot's France Pavilion as part of the expansion that will also include Remy's Ratatouille Adventure.

The new Crêperie will feature the cuisine of chef Jérôme Bocuse, who also runs the pavilion’s Chefs de France brasserie and Monsieur Paul. With a menu inspired by the Brittany region of France, the new location will offer table service dining as well as a quick-service stop for savory crepes called galettes and sweet crepes.

Disney's Hollywood Studios has opened its all new resort bus stop loops, with an impressive complex that will greatly improve the arrival experience from resort hotels.
The new loops hold more than 50 bus stops, and are located within a minutes walk from the park entrance, adjacent to the new Disney Skyliner station.

The two loops contain load and unload on both sides, and all the stops are covered and have overhead fans.

The opening of the new bus stops are the first phase of a major redevelopment of the parks main entrance area, which will also see new security checkpoints and a new tram station.



Disney has announced that a new film will be coming to Epcot's Land Pavilion in the Harvest Theater - the former home to the Circle of Life film.

“Awesome Planet,” an on-screen exploration of the realm we call home, showcases the spectacular beauty, diversity and dynamic story of our earth with all the grandeur guests have come to expect.

With spectacular nature photography, immersive in-theater effects, and space sequences created by none other than Industrial Light & Magic (which provided the cinematic foundation for the Star Wars franchise), “Awesome Planet” will stir Epcot guests and deliver an environmental message that will resonate far beyond its final scenes.

Disney has announced that Rafiki's Planet Watch at Disney's Animal Kingdom will reopen to guests in the summer of 2019.

Rafiki’s Planet Watch, the Affection Section and the Wildlife Express will all return to operation, along with a few enhancements in celebration of The Lion King.

Mizner's Lounge at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort is to be expanded during an upcoming refurbishment beginning early April 2019.

To make space for the expansion, the adjacent men's apparel shop Commander Porter's will close on April 4, 2019. Summer Lace on the ground floor will ultimately become home to both men's and women's apparel.

During the closure of Mizner's, a temporary lounge will be setup by the Garden View Tea Room on the ground floor. The Grand Floridian Orchestra will perform from the ground level during the work.

The work on expanding Mizner's is expected to be complete by Fall 2019.

DJ's Ready Set Party Time to open alongside Lightning McQueen's Racing Academy.

Several times daily, there will be “DJ’s Ready! Set! Party Time!” where Lightning McQueen’s Pit Crew arrives on the scene, getting everyone around DJ engaged in entertaining “Cars”-inspired dances and games.
