Disney adding Star Wars lands at Disneyland, Walt Disney World

Walt Disney Company Chairman and CEO Bob Iger announced at D23 EXPO 2015 that Star Wars-themed lands will be coming to Disneyland park in Anaheim, Calif., and Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Fla., creating Disney’s largest single-themed land expansions ever at 14-acres each, 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. These authentic lands will have two signature attractions, including the ability to take the controls of one of the most recognizable ships in the galaxy, the Millennium Falcon, on a customized secret mission, and an epic Star Wars adventure that puts guests in the middle of a climactic battle.

Disney is adding Stars Wars themed lands at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World, the company announced at its D23 conference.

“I am thrilled to announce the next chapter in the long and exciting history between Disney Parks and Star Wars,” the Disney Parks Blog quoted The Walt Disney Company Chairman and CEO Bob Iger as saying.

“We are creating a jaw-dropping new world that represents our largest single themed land expansion ever,” Iger added. “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.”

According to the blog:

These authentic lands will have two signature attractions, including the ability to take the controls of one of the most recognizable ships in the galaxy, the Millennium Falcon, on a customized secret mission, and an epic Star Wars adventure that puts guests in the middle of a climactic battle.
