Disney World Hints at Encanto, Coco and Villains Expansions in Magic Kingdom

Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom will be getting all new areas.

Disney rounded out its Parks and Experiences Panel at D23 Expo with a few hints of what's coming next to Walt Disney World. Speaking about what could possibly be on the other side of Big Thunder Mountain -- aka, the edge of the current Magic Kingdom map -- Disney Parks chair Josh D'Amaro on Sunday teased an Encanto area, a Coco area and a villains area.

The Coco area could see the town of Santa Cecilia celebrating Día de Muertos, where guests could ride on the back of a spirit guide like Dante. The Encanto area was hinted as featuring a tour of the Madrigal house with Mirabel and Bruno, and could include guests opening a door and finding out their own special gift.

And an area "overrun by villains" would feature Disney's greatest baddies, though D'Amaro suggested that'll be a few years away. He didn't give specific dates for any of these additions, or firm plans that they're even happening.

Over at Animal Kingdom, meanwhile, Dinoland USA is getting a long-awaited overhaul. Disney teased potential Zootopia and Moana themings before showing off a vague concept artwork of what the area could look like.

Also announced during the Disney Parks and Experiences Panel at D23 were the Avengers Campus multiverse expansion at Disneyland, details on the Princess and the Frog retheme of Splash Mountain, the opening date for Tron Lightcycle Run at Disney World, the name of the next Disney cruise ship and San Fransokyo at California Adventure.
