2023 has been an exciting year at Walt Disney World, with the opening of TRON: Lightcycle/Run as well as the expected completion of the long-awaited re-imagining of EPCOT with the opening of Dreamer's Point, CommuniCore Plaza, and an all-new nighttime show.

However, it looks like 2024 is going to be even bigger at the resort, with some very exciting new attractions getting ready to make their debut! As always, timelines are subject to change, but as of right now, these are all of the new additions that Disney fans should be able to check out in 2024:

1: Tiana's Bayou Adventure

Park: Magic Kingdom

Opening Date: Late 2024

Work is progressing quickly on Tiana's Bayou Adventure, which is set to open sometime late next year. This attraction will be a follow-up to the events of the Princess and the Frog movie, acting like a sequel of sorts, and will find Tiana preparing to host a large party for Mardi Gras but missing a key ingredient. To find it, guests will join Tiana on an adventure deep into the bayou, meeting new and familiar faces along the way as they search for this important ingredient and rush to make it to the party. 

During the ride, guests can expect to hear familiar tunes from the film as well as voiceovers from the original voice actors from the film, including film including Bruno Campos (Naveen), Michael Leon Wooley (Louis), and Jennifer Lewis (Mama Odie) and, of course, Anika Noni Rose who voiced Princess Tiana, who will all be returning to record new dialogue for the ride.

2. County Bears Musical Jamboree

Park: Magic Kingdom

Expected opening range: Mid-2024

Magic Kingdom opening day attraction Country Bear Jamboree is set to be reimagined as the "County Bears Musical Jamboree" next year.  This updated attraction will have a completely new story and soundtrack, with the Country Bears characters now set to reinterpret songs from classic Disney movies in different genres of country music during the show.

Disney has yet to debut an official tracklist, but a preview showed various musicians working on a country version of the "Bare Necessities" song from The Jungle Book, which will presumably be a part of the show. No opening target was given, but considering Disney has already started work on this project, we'd guess that a mid-2024 opening, perhaps just in time for summer, would be likely. 

3. Star Tours Ahsoka Update

Park: Disney's Hollywood Studios

Expected opening range: Mid-2024

Another project that doesn't have a specific timeline, but will likely be ready for summer is a new Star Tours update. Back in 2023, Disney announced during Star Wars Celebration that there would be "more stories and characters" and "all new adventures" coming to Star Tours in 2024. And now we know at least one of those new stories and characters will be Ahsoka, as seen in the new Disney+ series bearing the same name.

No additional information has been made available about what other new destinations will be a part of this new update, but considering how popular baby Grogu is we'd be shocked if the Mandalorian character doesn't at least make an appearance. 

4. Fort Wilderness DVC Cabins

Park: N/a

Expected opening range: Late 2024

The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort are currently being reimagined as the next Disney Vacation Club property as part of the overall refreshment of Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground. More than 350 new cabins are being constructed to replace the existing cabins nestled across 750 acres. Each stand-alone cabin offers spacious accommodations, sleeping up to six adults, and features a bedroom, bathroom, living room, full kitchen, and private patio.
