Disney’s Star Wars Land Opening at Disneyland and Walt Disney World in 2019
If you’re a Star Wars fan, we have some amazing news for you!
Disney has officially announced that its Star Wars themed lands will open at Disneyland in Anaheim, CA and Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, FL in 2019. The news came in today after an earnings call from Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger.
The themed lands have yet to receive an official name but both projects are progressing very fast. The Disneyland version appears to be moving along faster thn its sister land in Florida. The new expansion will be taking over 14 acres at the Disneyland California park. To put that into perspective, Cars Land at California Adventure sits on 12 acres; Disney is touting Star Wars as its largest single-themed land expansion! Check out the construction progress at Disneyland in California below!
Two attractions have been announced so far. One attraction is set to take place in the middle of a battle between First Order stormtroopers and Resistance Fighters. Another ride will put guests in control of the Millennium Falcon and task them with “steering the vessel through space [and] firing the laser cannons,” according to a TV special last February.
Elsewhere in the land, you’ll be able to meet droids and aliens and taste local delicacies at a street market or in an upscale dinner club and a more divey cantina.
If you need your Star Wars fix now, the Tomorrowland section of Disneyland is in the middle of the “Season of the Force,” which includes character meet-and-greets and a Star Wars makeover of Space Mountain—only the best Disneyland ride—entitled “Hyperspace Mountain.” Meanwhile, in another corner of the galaxy, California Adventure’s Guardians of the Galaxy makeover of the Tower of Terror is expected to open this summer.
During The Walt Disney Company Shareholders meeting, Disney CEO Bob Iger also revealed that Pandora: World of Avatar, will open at Disney World on Saturday, May 25th, 2017.
