orlandovacation_disney-star-warsDisney World has done a great job of staying ahead of the curve and constantly adding new attractions and lands. The Magic Kingdom’s New Fantasyland, the largest expansion in Magic Kingdom history, completed its massive unveiling with the 7 Dwarves Mine Train this summer, and a new Avatarland is slated to open in the Animal Kingdom in 2017. But that’s not what teens are talking about today.

The Announcement

At this point, it’s more an announcement of an announcement: CEO Bob Iger announced that in 2015 Disney Parks would announce big plans for Star Wars. This comes as no surprise – Disney recently bought the rights to Star Wars and fans have long hoped that these two massive brands would come together in an amazing way.

So what do people think the announcement will be? What Iger specifically said is that there will be a “far greater Star Wars presence” and that the plans are going to be “significant.” Some are dreaming that it means a 5th theme park devoted entirely to Star Wars. Others believe that the Star Wars Weekends that happen in early summer at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be expanded.

What We’d Like to See

The Magic Kingdom recently had a huge expansion in New Fantasyland, but can you imagine a better place for a galaxy far, far away than Tomorrowland? We’d love to see Star Wars incorporated, though we don’t want to see our favorite rides moved or revamped. While the details at the moment are slim, one thing’s for sure: we’ll be anxiously awaiting the specifics.
