Changes in 2017, 2018, 2019

Hi,

Is there a thread somewhere else regarding this topic?

What changes were made in 2017?
What changes were/are made in 2018?
What changes are planned for 2019?

I know Toy Story Land opened at HS in 2017, but am looking for help or another thread with this information.

The big ones I can think of off the top of my head (and I know there will be others) are the opening of Pandora in Animal Kingdom in 2017 and all the changes at what's now Disney Springs (formerly Downtown Disney). Honestly, you won't recognise it.

Then, there are all the new DVC lakeside cabins at Wilderness Lodge. Plus, half of the lodge itself is now part of that new DVC resort, Copper Creek, which opened in July last year.

The previous DVC villas there are called Boulder Ridge and are a separate DVC resort.

Be Our Guest dinner is changing near the end of this month to a fixed-price menu and becoming a signature restaurant for dinner. Two dining credits per person required.

Then, there’s the new DVC resort near Caribbean Beach under construction, projected to open late next year along with the Skyline gondolas.

You can do more with a smartphone and the My Disney Experience app now. The latest (I think!) tweak to that was being able to book a fourth, fifth, etc. FastPass using your phone after you’ve used your advance-scheduled ones. No more having to go to the park to a kiosk to find out if the FP you want is available.

At some resorts, your Bluetooth phone can now be used as your room key and key to pool gates, fitness centers, etc. Not sure this has rolled out to all resorts yet, though. You’ll still need a Magic Band for park entry and room charging.

Actually...I think Toy story land just opened this year...2018. I was there in April, and it wasn't opened yet. Pandora was 2017 . I believe star wars land is 2019 but not positive

Yes, the only official word thus far is “late fall 2019” for its opening.

That’s the main reason we don’t plan to return in November next year, when we usually go.
