A key feature of any attraction created for the Disney Parks by Walt Disney Imagineering is the ride vehicle. There are so many that are truly loved by Disney Guests around the world. Not only does a ride vehicle play an important part of Guests safety, but it also truly adds to the full Disney experience.

Which ride vehicles come to mind when you think of your time in the Disney Parks? The Doom Buggy from The Haunted Mansion? A mine cart that forms the Seven Dwarf’s Mine Train? The magical pirate ship that flies you over London in Peter Pan’s Flight? A spinning tea cup at the Mad Tea Party? The all-new vehicle that allows Guests to experience the Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind attraction in EPCOT. The list goes on…

And it isn’t about to end either! Confirmed today at the Disney D23 Expo, there are several new iconic ride vehicles that will be added to Disney Parks around the world.
