Hollywood Studios to build Star Wars, Toy Story lands
Disney’s magic will continue to expand as it announced a lineup of new entertainment attractions coming to its many theme parks around the world.
At this year’s D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, Disney revealed the news of the addition of a Star Wars theme park and a Toy Story Land park to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, according to a press release.
Disney’s Star Wars expansion will take place at both Hollywood Studios here in Orlando and at Disneyland in California.
The addition will feature a Star Tours adventure in addition to interactive experiences at the Star Wars Launch Bay and Jedi Training Academy. Disney will also host a new seasonal event called the Season of the Force set to begin early in2016. According to the release, the Star Wars expansion will be Disney’s largest single-themed land expansion ever, sizing up at 14 acres for each location.
In addition to the Star Wars expansion, Disney’s Hollywood Studios will take guests to infinity and beyond with the addition of Toy Story Land. This 11-acre expansion will transport Disney goers on an outdoor adventure to Andy’s backyard. Toy Story Land will feature oversized toys, such as building blocks and board game pieces, to give the illusion that guests have been shrunken down to the size of their favorite Toy Story characters. The expansion will also include a family-friendly roller coaster and an Alien Saucers attraction.
