Today, Saturday, September 9, it was announced at Destination D23 in Walt Disney World that Walt Disney Imagineering is planning to reimagine Dinoland U.S.A. at Disney’s Animal Kingdom into a new land – inspired by a region sometimes referred to as “tropical Americas.”


As part of their research, Imagineers are looking at some of the most biodiverse areas on the planet in the regions just north and south of the equator here in the Western Hemisphere – the northern part of South America, stretching up into Central America.


This exciting location has been the inspiration for many magical stories over the years


New experiences inspired by “Encanto” and the fan-favorite adventurer Indiana Jones are being planned for the reimagined land.
