Star Wars Land is coming!

 There’s been speculation about a Star Wars expansion in the Disney fan community for some time now but no one, apart from Disney Executives and Imagineers, knew the specifics.
Here’s what we know so far:

12Two Parks

Star Wars Land is coming to the Disneyland theme park in California and Disney’s Hollywood Studios in the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.

1114 acres

Each expansion will be spread out over fourteen acres on both coasts.

10Lots of space

The Fantasyland expansion at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom came in at only eleven acres, so this expansion will mark the largest in the company’s history.

9Signature Attractions

Both Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disneyland will be receiving two brand new signature Star Wars attractions.

8Star Wars Launch Bay

The “Star Wars Launch Bay” will be added to both parks and will give guests a behind-the-scenes look at the Star Wars franchise’s newest installment “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”.

7Millennium Falcon

You will be able to fly in a secret mission on one of the most recognizable ships in the galaxy, the Millennium Falcon as you experience one of the new attractions coming to Star Wars Land.

6Battle the Resistance

The second signature attraction will put you right in the middle of the action as you partake in a battle experience between the First Order and the Resistance.

5New Planets and Characters

You will get to explore new Star Wars planets that no one has ever seen before and meet new characters.

4Star Tours

Star Tours will be adding a new destination to its roster and a chance to visit a new world from (Episode Seven) “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”.

3Star Wars Season of the Force

Building on the success of Star Wars Weekends, in early 2016 both Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resort will be bringing a specialty event called “Star Wars Season of the Force” to guests.
