This summer at Walt Disney World is going to be incredible. All four of its theme parks will see new attractions, entertainment and experiences, allowing guests to immerse themselves in their favorite Disney films.

It all starts Memorial Day weekend. Here are some of the highlights:

Magic Kingdom

The stars of the movie "Incredibles 2" (opening in June) -- Mr. Incredible, Elastigirl and Frozone -- will interact with guests throughout Tomorrowland. And, Edna Mode will be joining them. Best news of all? There's a "super" dance party on the Rocket Tower Stage at the end of the night.


Super heroes will take the stage at America Gardens Theatre when Star-Lord and Gamora from "Guardians of the Galaxy" jam with an alien band. You can bet their favorite songs from "Mix Tape Vol 1 and 2" will be on the setlist.

Animal Kingdom

This park gets better and better. This summer is going to be one for bird lovers. A new show, "Explorers Meet UP! A Great Bird Adventure," kicks off. Senior Wilderness Explorer Russell (and dog sidekick, Dug) discover birds from around the world. Hope there aren't any squirrels to distract them.

Donald Duck can be found in Dinoland U.S.A. with a new character celebration.

And, of course, the biggest attraction is the new Avatar Flight of Passage ride in Pandora. It's a Walt Disney World must-do. The lines have been upward of two hours, so try to grab a Pandora FastPass if you can.

Hollywood Studios

And last, but not least, is the new Toy Story Land in Hollywood Studios. The 11-acre feature will take guests to infinity and beyond. Designed as Andy's backyard, it includes a family-friendly Slinky Dog Dash roller coaster, quick-service dining at Woody's Lunch Box, an updated Toy Story Mania and more.
