Disney Parks

Have you heard? We’re unveiling some exciting plans for Disney Parks in New York City in less than 24 hours. And you bet we’ll be announcing some good stuff that you’ll want to know about. So, on Thursday we’re offering live coverage of the event here on The Disney Parks Blog. You’ll be able to watch and interact in real time as we raise the curtain on what’s coming. We don’t want to give away any of the surprises but expect to see a few faces you’ll instantly recognize along with Disney characters and Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Tom Staggs.

The live stream begins on September 23 at 12:45 p.m. EST. We’ll also be providing updates on our @DisneyParks Twitter account and Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World Facebook pages. See you back here tomorrow afternoon.

Woo Hoo! I’m so excited that you will be live-streaming this! It will almost feel like I’m there!!

Luke from CA on September 22nd, 2010 at 6:16 pm

Sounds pretty exciting. Is this going to affect Disneyland, too?

Scott on September 22nd, 2010 at 6:17 pm

Maybe it will be the rumored new resort in the central US. There has always been a rumor of a Texas park, or a third gate in California.

If we can’t watch it live, where can we watch it afterward? Will it be on YouTube?

cheryl on September 22nd, 2010 at 6:23 pm

I am thrilled. I cannot wait to see what is in store for this huge Disney fan!!! I visit Disney World at least once a month so anything new is greatly appreciated! I will be watching!

Marcio on September 22nd, 2010 at 6:25 pm

Marvel? Changes in the New Fantasyland project? Shanghai? The third park in France?

I can’t even imagine what kind of news are coming :-D

These live stream videos from Disney are amazing! The one for ‘World of Color’ was wonderful! I can’t wait :)

Gustavo on September 22nd, 2010 at 6:27 pm

Jeremy from NY on September 22nd, 2010 at 6:28 pm

Is the event going to be open to the public? Just found out I’ll have the day off and I can get there.

Phil on September 22nd, 2010 at 6:35 pm

YAY! I want to know SO bad what’s going on, I’m excited!!! :D

14

Eileen from NC on September 22nd, 2010 at 6:36 pm

I keep seeing hints of New York… So I’m thinking they might be opening a new Disney in New York. But I HOPE it’s a 5th park at Walt Disney World!! Awwwww man!! I would through a party!! :]]]]]]

15

Lesli on September 22nd, 2010 at 6:39 pm

Something new at Disney!! How exciting!!

16

Jacqueline on September 22nd, 2010 at 6:39 pm

Can’t wait to see what it’s all about…I’m a huge Disney fan. :)

17

Dan on September 22nd, 2010 at 6:40 pm

It’s the new Disney Store in Times Square most likely. This has been known to the northerners for a while because it replaced the Virgin Mobile store. Can’t wait to see it. I’m gonna visit it on saturday.

18

Matthew from CA on September 22nd, 2010 at 6:42 pm

I’m going to be going NUTSO wiating for the news! Just tell me now! LOL

19

Kristen from NC on September 22nd, 2010 at 6:44 pm

I cannot wait. Two Disney destinations on the east coast. I am sooo excite to see!!!

20

Caleb from NV on September 22nd, 2010 at 6:44 pm

Could it be that Disney is in the works to buy/renew Coney Island?!?!?

21

Arielle from NC on September 22nd, 2010 at 6:48 pm

Let the Memories Begin?!?

22

Robert on September 22nd, 2010 at 6:51 pm

Epcot…? Figment and Epcot..? Epcot World Showcase? Wonders of Life…? Wait no: Epcot, with Figment in a new ride in a new World Showcase country!

Yeah, announce that.

23

Travis from NH on September 22nd, 2010 at 6:52 pm

Really hope we hear more about the Fantasyland Expansion coming to the Magic Kingdom. ;)

Scott on September 22nd, 2010 at 6:55 pm

Some of the best, and most believable rumors around here are Shanghai Disneyland and a fifth park at WDW, either a villians park or a heroes and villians park.

25

Matt on September 22nd, 2010 at 6:57 pm

As long as it has nothing to do with Duffy, I’ll be happy. And no Disney isn’t building any parks in Texas. I would love for Disney to add a “Lucasland” to DHS. Some more Star Wars rides would be great!

26

Christopher on September 22nd, 2010 at 6:58 pm

Maybe a new section of Marvel characters since they bought Marvel earlier this year. Regardless, Disney is awesome. Can’t wait to bring the family back in May.

27

Marcio on September 22nd, 2010 at 6:59 pm

I still think they could update IllumiNations with the new ‘World of Color’ technology!

A new World Showcase Pavilion would be great too! :-D

28

Micayla from IN on September 22nd, 2010 at 7:14 pm

My guess is DCL sailing from NYC.

29

tracy on September 22nd, 2010 at 7:16 pm

OK I know one of them cause we saw the model, if thats what they are talking about, and its DL. Lets hope its no more new parks, but we were told 2 more things about DW, now lets see if they are really true. I sure hope it is. If it is, its going to be awsome. And those 2 were both DW.

30

tracy on September 22nd, 2010 at 7:26 pm

and I didnt mean new parks, I ment new resorts

31

Paul on September 22nd, 2010 at 7:34 pm

I can only assume it’s the new Disney Store / World of Disney to replace the one that closed last year…

32

Fred from CA on September 22nd, 2010 at 7:37 pm

Very, very intriguing…

I hope the news involves Disneyland in some way.

33

Melanie on September 22nd, 2010 at 7:41 pm

I would love to see the plans for WDW’s 40th Anniversary celebrations!

34

dan on September 22nd, 2010 at 7:55 pm

the only thing that would interest me (and hundreds more, judging by the volume of mail that gets sent to Allen Weiss), is re-opening Pleasure island

35

kristine on September 22nd, 2010 at 8:09 pm

Can’t wait!!!!

36

Elizabeth from RI on September 22nd, 2010 at 8:16 pm

Could it possibly the return of the Lights of Winter to Epcot?

37

Panagiota on September 22nd, 2010 at 8:25 pm

You need to add Greece to Epcot

38

Michelle on September 22nd, 2010 at 8:39 pm

YES, Dan. I totally agree, I wish they would re-open Pleasure Island. But since they are in New York, I guess it has something to do to with something up there. But, I’d be so happy if they’d re-open, the buildings are just sitting there anyway! :-O

39

Susan on September 22nd, 2010 at 8:46 pm

My guess… a fifth “adventure” park in FL with thrill rides.

40

James on September 22nd, 2010 at 8:49 pm

I hope it means a new parade for Magic Kingdom! It needs help ASAP!

41

Debra from FL on September 22nd, 2010 at 9:09 pm

@ Dan— Would LOVE to see Pleasure Island (especially The Adventurers Club) re-opened. NOTHING to do at night at WDW anymore once you’ve seen 3 night shows. At least I get to see the AC characters in early October at ConGaloosh.

42

Mary from VA on September 22nd, 2010 at 9:16 pm

Probably something to do with the 40th anniversary celebration!

43

Kris from IL on September 22nd, 2010 at 9:18 pm

I am very excited about this! I am usually always at work during the day, and I am off tomorrow!!! Can’t wait!!

44

Kristen from NY on September 22nd, 2010 at 9:24 pm

I really hope it’s the Fantasyland expansion!! I heard rumours of Marvel characters being added to Adventureland.

45

Daniel on September 22nd, 2010 at 9:26 pm

Are they going to be revealing what the new theme will be for next year, which will be extended into the following year due to popular demand?

46

Ellen on September 22nd, 2010 at 9:28 pm

I’m guessing this may have something to do with the construction behind the castle in Orlando. Looks forward to hearing what it is and seeing it when we head up for the wine festival next month!

47

Bernadette from NJ on September 22nd, 2010 at 9:41 pm

Anyone know where in NYC the announcement is taking place?

48

Ricardo from CA on September 22nd, 2010 at 9:46 pm

One of the plans has to be the partnership between Disney and Apple in which they’ll be using new technology for the World of Disney store opening in Times Square. It’ll be the first of many Disney stores that’ll get the upgrade. Hope I get to see it for myself some time soon in California.

49

kent from FL on September 22nd, 2010 at 10:06 pm

New slogan for the parks? To replace celebrate?

50

Barbara on September 22nd, 2010 at 10:14 pm

Can’t be about the Disney Store in NYC…. that’s not “new” news. I’m hoping they are adding on to WDW!! :)
