Disney D23: Starwars Theme Park!!!!

My favorite part of Disneyland was always the ‘Star Tours’ ride. However, the recent revamp has left me unsatisfied and a little disappointed..

There is A New Hope! Star Wars Land is coming to Anaheim and Orlando. Over 14 acres each, it’s Disney’s largest single themed land expansion ever. Disney’s goal, “transporting guests to a never-before-seen planet, a remote trading port and one of the last stops before wild space where Star Wars characters and their stories come to life.”

Bob Iger, Disney’s CEO, had this to say:

“I am thrilled to announce the next chapter in the long and exciting history between Disney Parks and Star Wars,” said Iger. “We are creating a jaw-dropping new world that represents our largest single themed land expansion ever. These new lands at Disneyland and Walt Disney World will transport guests to a whole new Star Wars planet, including an epic Star Wars adventure that puts you in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance.”

Some concept art after the jump:

Looks like I’ll be packing my bags to visit both!
