7,500 screaming Disney fans were privy to a special announcement from Walt Disney Company Chairman and CEO Bob Iger at the recent D23 Expo in Anaheim California.
Star Wars Land is coming!
There's been speculation about a Star Wars expansion in the Disney fan community for some time now but no one, apart from Disney Executives and Imagineers, knew the specifics.
Here's what we know so far:b2ap3_thumbnail_Star-Wars-Launch-Bay.jpg
1) Star Wars Land is coming to the Disneyland theme park in California and Disney's Hollywood Studios in the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.
2) Each expansion will be spread out over fourteen acres on both coasts.
3) The Fantasyland expansion at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom came in at only eleven acres, so this expansion will mark the largest in the company's history.
4) Both Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disneyland will be receiving two brand new signature Star Wars attractions.
5) The "Star Wars Launch Bay" will be added to both parks and will give guests a behind-the-scenes look at the Star Wars franchise's newest installment "Star Wars: The Force Awakens".
6) You will be able to fly in a secret mission on one of the most recognizable ships in the galaxy, the Millennium Falcon as you experience one of the new attractions coming to Star Wars Land.
7) The second signature attraction will put you right in the middle of the action as you partake in a battle experience between the First Order and the Resistance.
8) You will get to explore new Star Wars planets that no one has ever seen before and meet new characters.
9) Star Tours will be adding a new destination to its roster and a chance to visit a new world from (Episode Seven) "Star Wars: The Force Awakens".
10) Building on the success of Star Wars Weekends, in early 2016 both Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resort will be bringing a specialty event called "Star Wars Season of the Force" to guests.

    My husband and I are huge fans of Star Wars and we cannot wait until they get done constructing these new "Star Wars Land"s! I really love that Disney is doing this and I think that they'll do a wonderful job.
