While at D23 Expo 2015 this past weekend I heard about some really fun things coming up at Disney Parks all around the globe! I could go on for hours about all the new lands and worlds but I wanted to focus on the two that excite my kiddos the most. Star Wars Land and Toy Story Land are coming soon!
“Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world.” Walt Disney
My son and husband were super excited to hear that there will be awesome enhancements to Star Wars themed rides that are already at Disneyland. Jedi Training Academy will soon include villains from Star Wars Rebels. Later this year Star Tours will include a new adventure featuring Star Wars : The Force Awakens. But what the crowd at D23 Expo cheered most wildly about was Season of the Force – a new seasonal event that will begin in early 2016 at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Special entertainment, new fireworks, and limited time “Hyperspace Mountain” are sure to thrill Star Wars fans of all ages!
As if that was not exciting enough, it was also just announced at the D23 Expo that Star Wars land themed area is coming to Disneyland park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort. Both lands will be the largest single themed land expansion ever at 14 acres each!
Concept Art for Star Wars land was shared for the first time at the Expo and now I am sharing it with you here……
Star Wars Land
Can you believe Toy Story just celebrated it’s 20 year anniversary? The Toy Story Trilogy (and Toy Story 4 – more on that later) have also inspired a whole new land. Toy Story Mania is a family favorite at Disney California Adventure Park and Hollywood Studios. It was just announced that Hollywood Studios in Florida will be welcoming Toy Story Land soon!
Toy Story land
Toy Story Land will be 11-acres and will transport guests into the adventurous outdoors of Andy’s backyard. Guests ‘shrink’ to the size of of the cast and characters in Toy Story. Imagineers will create an environment full of oversized toys to help imaginations run wild. Toy Story land will include two new attractions. I will share more as I hear more!
