Fabulous news for Star Wars fans: Walt Disney World is building a new Star Wars inspired land – and it’s already under construction! As part of the largest Disney expansions ever – one for Walt Disney World and one for Disneyland – guests will enjoy a fully immersive experience that puts them in the middle of all the action with two incredible attractions.
A New World
Step inside the Star Wars world and you’ll find yourself on a new planet that features its own trading outpost offering food, gear, and creative concoctions from all over the galaxy. There’s also a Resistance Village outside of the town – and an ominous, recently arrived TIE fighter. Every detail around you will be completely authentic, placing you inside of your own Star Wars story.
You’ll find Star Wars characters – humans, aliens, and droids – at every turn. Some will be old friends, and some will be completely new characters that you might find at any real outpost located in the Star Wars universe. You’ll be able to interact with all of these characters, as well as with the vehicles, buildings, and terrain you encounter. In fact, you’ll actually become a character yourself – and choose your own alliance! Of course, you always have to option to simply remain a spectator.
Mixed into every second you spend in this incredible new land, you’ll find all of the action and humor that makes Star Wars one of the most popular franchises ever. In addition, the new attractions allow you to actually customize your experience for each ride, making your own choices and decisions – and dealing with the ensuing consequences, good or bad. This means that no two trips on either attraction will ever be the same!
Pilot the Millennium Falcon
Take control of the Millennium Falcon and actually pilot from the cockpit of one of the fastest ships in the galaxy to fly on your own personalized secret mission. Complete your mission in record time, and earn extra galactic credits; damage the ship, and you may discover later in the local cantina that a bounty has been put on your head.
Experience an Epic Battle
The second attraction will allow you to embark on a heroic Star Wars journey that places you at the center of an epic battle between the First Order and the Resistance. As many as 150 Stormtroopers will attack brave resistance fighters – and you’ll be right in the middle! You may even have to run from your vehicle to catch a safer ride during your interactive experience.
The planned opening of the new Star Wars land is in 2019, but you can get a sneak peek with this video taken at the 2017 D3 Expo!
