Disney unveiled a slew of new attractions coming to its parks at its D23 Expo this weekend.

Future World’s Mission: Space will receive an updated Green Mission, taking guests on a tour around the Earth, and an Orange Mission taking riders to Mars. A "Guardians of the Galaxy"-inspired attraction will also be added to Future World. This new attraction will replace the current Universe of Energy attraction, which will close Aug, 13, 2017.

At Hollywood Studios, new technology at the Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Rail will “transform the flat [Mickey Mouse cartoon shorts] world into an incredible dimensional experience." The Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway will replace The Great Movie Ride and will put guests into the world of a Mickey Mouse cartoon with a new technology Disney is calling 2 1/2 D (no glasses required).
