Everyone knows that activities, theme parks, beaches, and fun get more and more exciting every year. Orlando-lovers may think they have seen it all, then along comes another attraction that will blow the others out of the water. Well, that's not exactly true because we all love the fabulous sites and themes that have been so popular for years. Who could visit Orlando and not want to see Cinderella's Castle?

There are some coming attractions that we know families, children, and adults are going to fall in love with, in 2020. Let's take a look!

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is not just a new ride. It is an all-new land with numerous all-new attractions. Star Wars lands will be opening at different times. Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will open on August 29, 2019, and will include dining, shopping, and Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will begin after the opening of Galaxy's Edge, but, if you schedule your trip at the beginning of 2020, you will more likely experience the entire Star Wars Land.

Remy's Ratatouille Adventure, a ride currently under construction, is a trackless ride that shrinks riders to the size of Remy and takes you through a wild journey through the kitchens of Paris.

It will not open until 2021, but everyone is excited about the new Tron Lightcycle Power Run. Its location is beside Space Mountain in Tomorrowland.

Unconfirmed, but it looks like Sea World is adding a new roller coaster to its site. The plans for the new attraction show a "high-thrill hybrid wooden coaster." It looks as if the coaster will have airtime, banked turns, inversions, and possibly a speed of up to 55 mph.
