Star Wars Land Coming To Disney World



LINK

quote:

One idea that came along before Disney made the hugest deal of all time was a STAR WARS theme park. It's said that The Walt Disney Company decided to dump $1 billion into giving Disney's Hollywood Studios at Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida a make-over. It's been revealed from sources close to themeparkinsider.com that Star Wars Land is coming. Here are some details on the location within the park which will take at least 5 years to get up and going:


I'm surprised this hasn't been done years ago considering the Indiana Jones partnership with Disney.

quote:

it appears that the expansion would take out the area between Star Tours and the auto stunt show stadium, including the Muppet theater and Honey, I Shrunk the Kids play area. But

re: Star Wars Land Coming To Disney World


it would be a big hit but they need to do more than upgrade that area they need to make Hollywood studios bigger....just look at harry potter world at universal , that place gets ridiculously packed....imagine star wars , it could probably be its own park....

Is an entirely new park being considered? They have the land.

Supposedly, they're building an Avatarland as well. Some big additions coming.

I wouldn't bank on a bunch of "thrill rides", but should still add some quality attractions

Don't tell the movie board that.

Whatever the opposite of a hard on is, that's what those guys have for Avatar

The area in question will be the entire era behind that. Where the muppets is, honey I shrunk the kids playground, lights motor action and streets of america....an entire new wing of the park.

Word is, performers and CMs in the Lights Motor Action Show have been notified of the ending of the show, but nothing official and no dates as of yet.

This rumor (although heavy with some accurate insider confirmation) has been floating around for some time as Disney's response to Universal and Harry Potter. Now with the announcement of the second phase of Harry Potter opening, Disney is scrambling to respond, while MGM is leaking money and dying.

I'm all for expansion and I love Star Wars, but not at the cost of Muppets, Sci Fi dine in, Mama Melrose, Indiana Jones, and several other attractions.

I don't think Indiana jones would be effected. More of everything from star tours on back. Sure you've heard but the backlot tour is rumored on the way out.

And who knows WTF they're going to do with America Idol. That and the legend of jack sparrow are a comete waste of space.

Everybody but Spiderman. He's all wrapped up in the Sony/Universal confusion land. Disney bought Marvel but somehow, everybody else still has dibs on Spiderman for some reason. What's up with that?

It needs to go. It is old and antiquated. That is a huge space that could be used for something else

We were there at the end of May and the car flipping effect didn't work and they stopped the show mid way through because of rain. It needs to go.

Wow the stunts show isn't even that old, what 4-5 years? They didn't get their money's worth on that. Hope they can reuse the sets and huge amphitheater.

Disney bought the rights to marvel, but cannot market or use any marvel characters already under the umbrella of someone else. Hulk, spider man, etc.

Now, go to Europe and you will see Disney hulk shit, just not in the US
