This year 27 pavilions are confirmed each reflecting the distinctive personality and cultural diversity of the country or region they represent, through local arts and crafts, national foods, cultural entertainment and authentic products.
Gates will open again on Monday 3 January 2022, to welcome guests at the heart of wonder starting 4pm.
Underpinning this reputation is the variety of mega theme parks that offer everything from Guinness World Record holding rides to magical experiences for Hollywood and Bollywood fans.
The season 26 will give visitors the chance to spend Ramadan and Eid at the village.
The introduction of a third entrance, Happiness Gate, will give guests an alternative to entering the venue, helping traffic flow and ensuring shorter distances from car parks.
The helium balloon, which is as high as a six-storey building and measures 65 feet in diameter, will give guests the chance to experience spectacular 360-degree views across Global Village and the wider surroundings.
The VIP packs offer exceptional value and are available in limited numbers, so demand is expected to be very high. A small proportion of the VIP Packs are available for pre-booking for Dhs 70 from September 17 until September 22.
