Walt Disney World Resort is rolling out the red carpet — and some new attractions — as part of this year's 50th anniversary celebration. Here are four new reasons to check out the “happiest celebration on Earth” in Orlando:

  1. SOARIN'

    This hang-glider simulation ride makes you feel as if you're flying.

  2. VERACRUZ EXHIBIT HALL AT CORONADO SPRINGS RESORT

    The 86,000 square feet of new exhibit space brings total space at the facility to 220,000 square feet.

  3. LIGHTS, MOTORS, ACTION EXTREME STUNT SHOW

    From stadium seats overlooking the set — a village in the south of France — watch cars fly through the air and crash through windows in an automobile ballet.

  4. MAGICAL EXPRESS

    Disney's Magical Express offers remote airline check-in for domestic flights for meeting attendees. The service includes free airport shuttle and luggage delivery.
