Exciting news from Disney’s Animal Kingdom! Walt Disney Imagineering has officially kicked off the Tropical Americas expansion with the filing of a Notice of Commencement. This expansion is set to enchant fans with new and immersive experiences inspired by the beloved Encanto film and the legendary adventurer, Indiana Jones.

According to the latest documents, Modular Building Systems International will install trailers in the new project compound, marking the first major step in the transformation of DinoLand U.S.A. into a vibrant portrayal of the tropical Americas. Those keen on Disney’s development know similar setups facilitated the Fantasyland redevelopment and Pandora–The World of Avatar.

At the D23 Fan Event in August, we’re anticipating a treasure trove of details about this reimagined space. Fans can expect Indiana Jones to replace the thrilling Dinosaur attraction while Encanto will bring a magical new charm to the former Dino-Rama area. Imagineering head Bruce Vaughn captures the essence perfectly, saying, “Imagine a land filled with authentic experiences from this part of the world. It’s a beautiful region to explore and has been the inspiration for so many magical stories.”

Adding to the allure, Disney has also confirmed a new show based on Zootopia for the Tree of Life theater, replacing “It’s Tough to Be a Bug.” Visitors will get to explore various biomes from the Zootopia film, interacting with favorites like Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde. As Judy Hopps might say, “It’s going to be a wild ride!”

It’s evident that Disney is doubling down on its investment in the Parks, Experiences, and Products segment, aiming to spend nearly $60 billion over the next decade to create unparalleled magical experiences.
