Disney CEO Bob Iger has officially confirmed that the two Star Wars Land expansions for Disneyland and Disney World will open some time in 2019.
Our new Star Wars-themed lands at Disneyland park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be opening in 2019! Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger just made the announcement many of you have been so anxious to hear during today’s Walt Disney Company Q1 FY17 Earnings call.
So the parks ought to open four years after they were first announced. Smart money says that they’ll open in the Summer, when park attendance should be at its highest for the year – and, importantly, well ahead of Episode IX.
On an unrelated note, the Pandora: World Of Avatar expansion will be opening in Disney World’s Animal Kingdom Park on May 27. Hopefully, that should help whet your appetites as we continue to wait for Star Wars Land over the course of the next two years.
