Star Wars™-Themed Lands Coming to Disneyland® and Walt Disney World® Resorts

The Walt Disney Company announced that a galaxy far, far away would be coming to a Disney Park near you!

In what is being called Disney’s largest single themed land expansion in history, these new Star Wars™-themed lands will bring 14 acres of fun to both Disneyland® Park in Anaheim and Disney’s Hollywood Studios® in Orlando.

Plans call for the land to transport guests to a never-before-seen-planet feature two signature attractions. Inside the land, every store and restaurant will be run by the “locals” of the planet!

No date has been announced for the launch of these new Star Wars™-themed lands. But in the meantime, new Star Wars™ fun is on the way!

  • Stars Tours® – The Adventures Continue – Later in 2015, Star Tours® – The Adventures Continue attractions in both Disneyland® Park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios® will include a new adventure with locations and characters from the upcoming Star Wars™: The Force Awakens.
  • Jedi Training Academy – A current favorite of young Padawans, Jedi Training Academy, will soon be reimagined with a new experience that includes new characters and a new villain to battle from the popular Disney XD series, “Star Wars Rebels.”
  • Star Wars™ Launch Bay – Also coming in 2015, this new interactive experience will take guests on both coasts into the upcoming film, Star Wars™: The Force Awakens. The experience will feature special exhibits, visits with new and favorite Star Wars™ characters, and specialty food and merchandise offerings. Star Wars™ Launch Bay will be located in Tomorrowland® at Disneyland® Park and inside the Animation Courtyard at Disney’s Hollywood Studios®.
  • Season of the Force – Inspired by the success of Star Wars™ Weekends, Season of the Force will be a new season event, beginning early 2016, bringing more intergalactic fun into Disneyland® Park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios®. At Disneyland® Park, Space Mountain® will be reimagined into Hyperspace Mountain. Over at Disney’s Hollywood Studios®, they will feature a new fireworks spectacular on weekend nights set to the iconic scores of Star Wars™ movies. Much more fun is in the works as well.
