Over the next few years, you will see some major changes coming to Disney World in preparation for the resort’s 50th Anniversary in 2021. In anticipation of these new experiences, there may be a few changes you want to make if you are planning on visiting in 2020.
Note that you may not be able to make these changes juuuust quite yet. As of this writing, reservations are not available for many of next year’s new attractions and restaurants (but check back with DFB often — you know we’ll let you know as soon as they do!). With that said, here are a few things you will want to consider changing when the time comes!
In case you haven’t heard, there are a LOT of changes coming to both Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort.
While many changes come in the form of new attractions (like the highly-anticipated TRON Lightcycle Run and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind), there are also a whole bunch of NEW restaurants coming soon, like Space 220 and Woody’s Roundup Barbecue to the parks and resorts! Let’s explore all the new and soon to be new options you need to know about.

Now — on to the news!
We have a lot to share with you this week, so let’s jump right in…
Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort
has expanded to the new 545-room Gran Destino Tower, and atop that tower is a new lounge that is not to be missed!
Dahlia Lounge is inspired by the Disney short film Destino which was, in part, storyboarded by artist Salvador Dali. It told a fascinating story about a mortal, Dahlia, who catches the eye of Chronos, the Greek figure who represents time.
Dali’s surrealist’s spirit infused the film, and it has infused Dahlia Lounge as well. Warmth, visual interest, and expert mixologists (artists in their own right!) are found here. [Read more…]
