Best wishes on your upcoming trip!

As for new stuff, there’s a ton of it! We love Star Wars, and the new fireworks/laser/projection show at DHS is terrific. If you like characters, and are a SW fan, they have a Kylo Ren “encounter,” because he appears menacing and brooding, not so friendly. Chewbacca is much more fun loving. As Dot said, if you aren’t into SW, DHS might not be as big a deal for you, but the Toy Story Land addition will be brand new when you are there. It should be loads of fun to see.

The Fantasyland expansion is impressive. We enjoy Enchanted Tales with Belle, a new experience. We also like the new Little Mermaid ride, and the wait there is usually pretty reasonable. It’s a non-thrill ride, for sure, basically just a journey through the story.

At Animal Kingdom, Pandora is new, replacing Camp Minnie-Mickey. Since you’re not interested in thrill rides, you would want to stick to the Na’vi River Journey, a boat ride.

Epcot now has Frozen Ever After, replacing Maelstrom.

Food...Our favorites are Crystal Palace at MK, Tusker House at AK, not much of anything at DHS, and so many at Epcot. If you like Italian, Via Napoli has the best pizza I’ve ever eaten, and Tutto Italia is a lovely upscale Italian eatery. But really, the variety of food at Epcot is wonderful. We could eat there every night.

Downtown Disney is now Disney Springs, and you’ll hardly recognize it. The Marketplace is still there, but the rest is almost all new stuff. The bus stop is even at a different location.

Hoping you have a great trip!!
