Big Happenings Coming to Disney Parks in 2022

Big Happenings Coming to Disney Parks  in 2022

In our last podcast, we noted all of the attractions–over 60–that premiered in 2021. But what about 2022? This year stands to be as amazing as 2021. Not necessarily for the number of attractions and offerings, but for the size of investment. In addition to major rides and attractions, at least three parks (and maybe more) across the globe will be receiving all new lands, complete with rides, attractions, entertainment, food, beverage, shopping and more. Two new hotels also premiere, and more expensive than all of them, a brand new Disney cruise ship will set sail this summer–the first ship in over ten years. Plus all of the attractions returning that were put on hiatus during the pandemic, 2022 will be another major banner year for Disney Parks everywhere. Tune in to this podcast as we explore all this and more!

An outline plus photos are shown below but our podcast carries narrative of the entire experience. You can find the podcast here on PodbeaniTunesSpotify,  and ListenNotes
