Disney releases updated timeline for Parks and Resorts openings through 2026

As part of yesterday's quarterly earnings report, Disney has released its latest timeline of major openings at parks and resorts through 2026.

While there are no surprises for Walt Disney World, it does confirm openings of the Polynesian and Fort Wilderness Disney Vacation Club projects in 2024. Most significantly, the timeline reinforces the recent shift in language around the opening of Tiana's Bayou Adventure. We initially heard Disney suggest a "late 2024" opening in all discussions, and that has now consistently been changed to "2024."

Here is the full run-down of Disney Parks and Experiences openings worldwide through 2026.

Everyone going to Uni should have a water park day. Volcano Bay is amazing, it's even far better than Uni Studios. Water park day at Disney? Eh not as essential IMO.

Agreed. It also reinforces my point on that a lot of Disney fans aren't ride people but more so immersive experience people

I should put on my fireproof coat first… But I find the desperation pleading for fireworks and parades over rides to be kinda sad.

HauntedPirateFeb 16, 2024

New cupcakes... that's what the people want.

SirwalterraleighFeb 16, 2024

Rookie…can’t believe you didn’t catch that 😎

HauntedPirateFeb 12, 2024

Well played, then. :)

Jrb1979Feb 12, 2024

I was being sarcastic. Look at the hype threads here for night time parades and festivals get versus new attractions

HauntedPirateFeb 12, 2024

Don’t hold your breath on that. Not sure if you’re being sarcastic but new rides do generate demand. Bob’s problem is he thinks rethemes are perfectly acceptable.

New vanities for DVC is all but assured

Jrb1979Feb 12, 2024

Who cares as long as a new night time parade comes. New attractions don't excite the fanbase.

HauntedPirateFeb 12, 2024

You know what’s missing in that list for WDW? Actual expansion, either land or ride capacity.

SirwalterraleighFeb 12, 2024

Yeah…that definitely is a British thing Vacation is “frowned up” in the post industrial nightmare across the pond

SirwalterraleighFeb 12, 2024

You got my wires crossed on this one

What works for Universal for us is with 5 full days, you can have actual resort days to relax and not have to parks every day. It also gives up time to see more than just Universal. We have been able to do places like Gator Land and some International Drive things.
