Magic Kingdom Expansion | Coco, Encanto & Disney Villains Land

There were a ton of announcements at this past D23 Expo, but none of them was more exciting than a potential Magic Kingdom expansion including an area themed to Coco, Encanto, and Disney Villains!

In this story, we'll go over everything we've learned about the "Beyond Big Thunder Mountain" expansion to Disney's Magic Kingdom, which will be built behind the existing Frontierland.

They identified the area “Beyond Big Thunder Mountain” as the next potential expansion in the park, and offered three potential themed areas to fill it.

Overview

This theme would work pretty well as it can easily be sold that a Mexican village lays beyond Big Thunder Mountain, which is located in the American Southwest or Texas or Arizona.

Coco

Putting Encanto would likely be another popular choice with fans, but it is less believable from a geographic point of view.

Disney Villains

This would make sense as ever since the Beastly Kingdom expansion got shelved at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Disney fans have been clamoring for years for something similar.

From the latest announcement, Disney seems to have earmarked the area behind Frontierland as the most suitable place to expand the park in the near future.

Location

The area behind Frontierland is the largest expansion pad left at the Magic Kingdom, but also very difficult to get to and could create some big challenges for Imagineers.
