We have been waiting with bated breath for the news of when Star Wars land will be opening at Walt Disney World, only having the very vague notion of ‘2019’ to cling on to since the expansion was originally announced. The fully-immersive new land, a 14-acre expansion coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disneyland California is based on an entirely new planet in the franchise and will feature two new attractions and the chance to meet your Star Wars heroes in real life.
And finally, last night, Disney announced the news we’ve all been waiting for – a rough idea on when the lands might open at the individual theme parks! Star Wars will land at the Disneyland California resort first, with an expected opening date in the region of June 2019. So, if you can’t wait for Walt Disney World, you might want to start checking flight prices to LA next summer!
If you’re planning to visit Walt Disney World instead for the expansion at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you can expect the new land to open in late Autumn 2019! It’s a little later in the year than we had hoped but should coincide with some exciting Walt Disney World events like the Halloween and Christmas parties, giving you double the reason to go.
Check out this video which shows you a little more about what you can expect:
We can't wait to check out this brand new land next year (is it too early to start looking at flights? Asking for a friend...)
