12 New Disney World Attractions for 2016

12 New Disney World Attractions for 2016

Feel like you’ve already experience everything Disney World has to offer? Here are 12 new attractions to check out for 2016

The Kilimanjaro Safari ride is now open later than ever.

The world is always changing, and the future looks brighter than ever. Oh, sorry, “world” was supposed to be capitalized, because we’re talking about Disney World here — not the actual world; we’re all still doomed there.

Click here for 12 New Disney World Attractions for 2016

Anyway…In addition to some new Star Wars features, Walt Disney World in Orlando (which includes the Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Epcot, and Hollywood Studios theme parks, as well as Disney Springs, the BoardWalk, and two water parks) is rolling out a whole bunch of other changes, from new shows to new shops, new restaurants, and longer hours. While some of these attractions made their debut in the last month of 2015, we’re going to assume most people visiting in 2016 will still be experiencing them for the first time.

This guide will show you everything Mickey and his friends have up their sleeves (the ones who have sleeves, at any rate), and give you a few more reasons to be glad you’re headed to the happiest place on Earth.

Or, if you haven’t booked a trip yet, here are 10 reasons why 2016 (which happens to be the 45th anniversary of Magic Kingdom; look for some type of an event celebration on October 1) is the year to do so.


Disney World to remove all plastic silverware from theme parks

April is Earth Month and in celebration, Disney World is making an eco-friendly decision to remove all plastic silverware from their Florida theme parks starting today.

A few years back Disney decided to remove all plastic straws from the theme parks in an effort to protect wildlife, especially at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Guests could still ask for straws but they were no longer front and center at most quick-service restaurants. Some places like La Cava del tequila came up with replacement straws made with agave nectar instead of plastic. Love them! You can get your own reusable straws here.

Back in 2019 the Disney Store and many of the shops at Walt Disney World began the removal of plastic bags instead encouraging guests to use reusable bags as a way to save the environment. Who doesn’t have about a million of them at their house?

With the popularity of items like the spork (only $10.99) from Star Wars Galaxy’s edge and recently the all-new Disney Parks reusable bamboo utensils, it was an easy transition to removing plastic silverware from all theme parks.

So starting today Disney World is going to remove all plastic silverware from the theme parks and encourage guests to bring their own. I found some nice bamboo ones on Amazon here, or you can pick up the Disney Parks reusable ones that come with a nice carrying pouch.

For those guests visiting a sit-down restaurant there will be a .98 cent surcharge to use Disney’s metal silverware. This is for maintaining and upkeep of these items.

Many Disney Addicts are behind this decision:

I never really used them anyway…

With the increased handwashing and hand sanitizers around the theme parks, the spread of germs is pretty much non-existent so plastic silverware is not really needed anymore. Who really uses a fork to eat Mickey Popcorn?

For those guests visiting events like Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival and the upcoming Food and Wine Festival Disney is allowing those more eco-friendly guests to opt-out of using plates instead Disney Chefs will place the food items in your hands where you could just eat and go. Talk about convenience!

The removal of plastic silverware at the theme parks will save the company millions of dollars and prevent waste at local landfills. There is no information if this eco-friendly change will be coming to Disneyland when they reopen on April 30th!

We will have more information at a later time…
