Star Wars themed lands are coming to DisneyLand and Disney World!! The Millennium Falcon is coming with it and you are the pilot!! The expansion will be the biggest ever for the park  with 14 acres of Star Wars heaven. No official opening date has been announced yet, but some rumours are suggesting 2017 or 2018.

The good news is the wait won’t seem so long with Disney announcing Star Wars updates to the parks in the near future, which include:

Star Wars Launch Bay

Coming soon to Disney parks Disneyland and Disney World, The Star Wars Launch Bay will give guests a Star Wars interactive experience from our favourite Saga and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

I’m so hoping this opens during Halloween!!

Star Tours The Adventure Continues

Star Tours will be getting its own new adventure featuring locations and characters from The Force Awakens!!

Starting 2016 “Season of the Force” will be a seasonal event at both Disneyland and Disney World!! With Space Mountain transforming into Hyper Space Mountain… did someone say X-wing battle!!

Along with all the exciting news coming for Disney Parks we also got a whole lot more Star Wars news straight from the D23 Expo.
