Get ready for a party! Disney has revealed more plans about its Star Wars Land and Toy Story Land theme parks along with several more details and expansions.
Disney used its D23 Expo to reveal many details about its future plans. A couple of days ago we found out more about some of the movies the company is already working on. Now Disney is shinning some light on its plans for the expansion of its theme parks along with special focus on Star Wars and Toy Story.
The presence of Star Wars in the Disney theme parks is about to get really big, ComingSoon reports. The parks will be getting their own Star Wars Land sections which will be so big you could call them theme parks on their own.
It will start with Star Wars Launch Bay which will be opening later this year. It will be featured in Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida and Disneyland park in California. It will be an interactive experience showing a trip through all Star Wars movies including the latest one Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
