Guardians Of The Galaxy, Ratatouille And Tron Are All Coming To Walt Disney World

The Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida is getting a bunch of brand-name upgrades in the next few years leading up to the 50th anniversary in 2021.

At the D23 Expo, several new rides were announced. First up, an E-ticket Guardians of the Galaxy ride is coming to Epcot Center. No real details were given, except the context for the ride: the Guardians have landed on Earth at Epcot because Rocket Raccoon finds, and steals, a photo of a young Peter Quill at Epcot, and wants to investigate.

On the other side of the park, the Ratatouille ride — which first opened at Disneyland Paris — is coming to Epcot's World Showcase. It will be located in a brand new section of the park by the Eiffel Tower.

Then, over at the Magic Kingdom, the Tron Lightcycle ride that's at Shanghai Disneyland will occupy a space in Tomorrowland, right next to Space Mountain.

Finally, at Disney's Hollywood Studios, a new ride called Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway will be the first-ever full Mickey Mouse ride.

And, it seems like, Disney hopes all of this (as well as new transportation and restaurants) will be open by 2021.
