Disney Reveals Plans For Star Wars Lands At Theme Parks

Disney has announced plans and revealed concept art for Star Wars lands at its Disneyland theme park in  California and its Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.


The ambitious projects, which were unveiled atD23, will create Disney’s largest single-themed land expansions ever at 14 acres each. They will transport guests to a never-before-seen planet and a remote trading port among other locations. Visitors will be able to take the controls of the Millennium Falcon on a customised secret mission in an epic Star Wars adventure in the middle of a climactic battle.

“I am thrilled to announce the next chapter in the long and exciting history between Disney Parks and Star Wars,” said Disney boss Bob Iger. “Through each new attraction and new land we create, we push the boundaries of what is possible. And as you can imagine, with Star Wars, we are taking that to a whole new level, with a whole galaxy to explore.”


In addition, the Orlando park will be getting its very own Toy Story Land, featuring a family-friendly roller coaster which puts visitors on the back of Slinky Dog and an Alien Saucers ride.


Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida -- The reimagining of Disney’s Hollywood Studios will take guests to infinity and beyond, allowing them to step into the worlds of their favorite films, starting with Toy Story Land. This new 11-acre land will transport guests into the adventurous outdoors of Andy’s backyard. Guests will think they've been shrunk to the size of Woody and Buzz as they are surrounded by oversized toys that Andy has assembled using his vivid imagination.  Using toys like building blocks, plastic buckets and shovels, and game board pieces, Andy has designed the perfect setting for this land, which will include two new attractions for any Disney park and one expanded favorite.

Meanwhile, Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Florida will be undergoing the largest expansion in the park’s history with Pandora: The World of Avatar which will include a ride in which soar on a Banshee over a vast alien world and “Rivers of Light” – an innovative show unlike anything ever seen in Disney Parks, combining live music, floating lanterns, water screens and swirling animal imagery.
