New Plans, Names Announced For Upcoming Star Wars Lands at D23 Expo 2017

Disney’s most anticipated and upcoming Star Wars projects have names now. They will be called Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Also the experience is not limited to just the new themed lands. There will be a new Star Wars inspired Resort as well. Thanks to D23 Expo 2017 for all the exciting new revelations, plans and major announcements made on Disney Parks & Resorts.

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge


It’s to be noted that there is no relevancy to any specific film or character arc in the Franchise. Disney’s new Star Wars lands focuses mainly on an unknown planet set on the outer rim of the Galaxy far-far away. And as such the name “Galaxy’s Edge” perfectly fits into the concept. Both the new expansions are expected to open in 2019. The first of the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is coming to Disneyland, followed by the second of its kind at the Hollywood Studios of Walt Disney World Resort.

Star Wars Themed Resort

The Star Wars experience gets even more exciting and big as it goes beyond the parks. The officials revealed that a new Star Wars inspired Resort is coming as part of the Disney 360 vacation concept, which is a whole new vacation experience altogether. The Resort will never let you part away with the story. From the moment you step in, you become a citizen of the galaxy and experience the adventures just like the characters over there. And the story touches every single minute of your stay away from the Earth. No opening date announced for the Resort yet.

There will be no Han Solo or Luke Skywalker to save the day. Instead it’s you the guests who are the heroes in the new themed lands. Moreover, the new Star Wars experience allows guests to lead their own unique adventures. Whether it’s in the middle of a battle between the Resistance and the First Order or riding the Millennium Falcon the experience will be different base on your decisions.

Another ground-breaking announcement made by officials is about the first ever Mickey-themed ride attraction. The ride is coming to the Hollywood Studios and is replacing the Parks Great Movie Ride attraction. The new Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway will allow guests to experience the amazing world of Mickey Mouse Cartoons from the Disney Channel. Also according to officials the unique ride will feature new technologies, it will be a “2 and a half-dimension” ride and riders don’t have to wear 3-D glasses to enjoy the same. The officials also added that the ride is expected to be a “mousterpiece” with maximum hidden Mickeys ever.

Toy Story Land - Disney's Hollywood Studios

Toy Story Land – Disney’s Hollywood Studios


Among the other big revelations made on the occasion include Toy Story Land, which is coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios in summer 2018. Also we have the “Guardians of the Galaxy”-inspired and “Ratatouille”-inspired attractions for Epcot. These two landmark projects are expected to open just in time when the Disney Orlando Resort will celebrate its 50 th anniversary in 2021.

star wars lands new details

New Details on Upcoming Star Wars Lands Add to the Excitements

Disney’s largest ever single themed land expansion projects – The Star Wars Lands in Anaheim, California and in Orlando, Florida have taken the theme park world by storm. There is no comparison to the uniquely – immersive experiences the Lands offer. And the latest revelations on this make things even more exciting for the fans.

The recent – 2017 Star Wars Celebration in Orlando shares surprising new details about a space experience like no other. In deed it’s all about choices and consequences. A land where your choices will follow you around, until you end up with your own unique Star Wars story. Truly, the individual decision you make will have a direct effect on the overall experience. For example, you will come across different aspects of the environment, including reactions, based on your pick (on whose side you wanted to be) during the epic space battle between First Order and the Resistance. Your individual choices can earn you the power to add a new twist to the story altogether, or maybe you wanted to trigger some environmental changes with the purchase of a special Star Wars item for that matter. The possibilities can be many, but no real details available yet.

Secondly, character experiences will play a big role. At Disney’s Hollywood Studios – the Star Wars Launch Bay is the only place to meet those favorite space characters till now. But the new Star Wars Lands will change that forever with the inclusion of walk-around characters and droids like never before. Also not to forget the interactive elements with characters as well. For example, in the interactive dark ride you choose to help The First Order, and take commends for your efforts with Kylo Ren. Or possibly you find yourself chatting with Poe Dameron, who implores you to support the Resistance instead.

Star Wars Lands Story

Star Wars Lands Story


On the story side, we only heard about a remote galactic outpost, unknown till know. However, the new details have thrown more light on this mysterious destination – located on the Outer Rim somewhere. Guests will visit a remote village, used to be a busy crossroads along the old sub-lightspeed trade routes. However, the rise of hyperspace travel had led to its downfall as a prominence outpost. Now it’s considered as a thriving port for all those who prefer less attention, including rogues, smugglers, and adventurers.

Star Wars Lands are slated to open sometime in 2019. With plenty of additional details to come and with about two years to go before the one of a kind experiences come alive we will certainly keep hearing more about the new Lands.You can book your Disney Tickets in advance at special discounts with The Official Ticket Center.

Pandora-The World of Avatar

Excitement Builds as Countdown to Pandora – The World of Avatar Begins

For Avatar fans, it’s time to face the live version of story now. Pandora- The World of Avatar is opening on May 27, 2017 at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park. The massive new land will transport you to a visually stunning world of nature and adventure. Pandora is a unique planet, complete with floating mountains, bioluminescent plants, and the blue Na’vi that accompanies you on two amazing excursions. Guests will also be able to dine at Na’vi – themed restaurants or go shopping for Na’vi items, toys and much more.

Among the top adventures found here include, the family – friendly Na’vi River Journey. This one-of-a-kind boat expedition takes you through a glowing rainforest packed with bioluminescent plants, creatures and a Na’vi Shaman that hails a deep connect to the life-force of Pandora. The Avatar Flight of Passage is another awe-inspiring attraction that takes you on a rather thrilling expedition – a jaw-dropping ride on the back of a mountain Banshee over the moon’s incredible landscape. The attraction has a height requirement of 44-inch. Moreover, both Na’vi River Journey and Avatar Flight of Passage come with the FastPass+ option.

Every night at the valley of Mo’ara you will experience exotic plants that come to life in their glowing best. Guests will also be able to explore various Na’vi cultural items including playable instruments throughout the land. There will also be a host of Wilderness Explorers challenges to face, and exciting badges to collect. Tucked in Quonset-hut structure is the Na’vi restaurant – Satu’li Canteen, where guests can dine with a selection of internationally-inspired menus and specialty drinks. In the shopping area, namely Wintraders you can also visit the quick service eatery for some exclusive bioluminescent cocktails and beers, including snacks.


It’s the respect for nature that makes Pandora-The World of Avatar an integral part of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park. According to Joe Rohde (Imagineer, and an important figure in the original development for Disney’s Animal Kingdom) both the Avatar Films and Animal Kingdom Park are governed by the same intrinsic values of nature – The idea that nature is supreme and we should understand and respect nature. Secondly, the idea that adventure is not only physical but developmental, and it has the capacity to transform guests. Pandora is a world filled with immersive adventures, and surely you will be a different person altogether after the experiences.

Disney Quest at Disney Springs

Disney Quest at Disney Springs Is Closing Permanently on July 3, 2017

The one-of-a-kind indoor interactive fun and gaming attraction Disney Quest closes forever, making way for a brand new basketball experience, namely The NBA Experience at Walt Disney World Resort. This is something that fans are aware of since 2015 when Disney had revealed its intent for the first time to stop running Disney Quest and use the venue to create a unique NBA entertainment complex instead. Now with the recent announcement it becomes clear that Disney Quest is available for us until it closes forever on July 3, 2017

Located at Disney Springs West Side Neighborhood, Disney Quest has been a great source of entertainment for all the guests. The 5 story attraction houses some of the most unique gaming experiences, featuring fantasy adventure games, virtual reality and classic arcade games across four distinct play zones (Explore Zone, Score Zone, Create Zone and Replay Zone). There is something special for everyone on each floor of the landmark building. Among the many great Disney Quest highlights include a life-size game, CyberSpace Mountain, Mighty Ducks Pinball Slam, design-your-own-roller-coaster motion-simulator ride and many other arcade video games.

Since inception Disney Quest is considered as a landmark attraction that Disney Springs (previously Downtown Disney) area has to offer. However, it started to appear dated with time, and for many the big-time attraction fell victim to the constantly changing technological needs of the hour. There are others who think Disney Quest had lost its “wow” factor with time as well. Moreover, given the multi-year Disney Springs transformation program, and with more and more fresh and new venues popping up one after the other, it becomes a tough choice for Disney to continue with many of the older attractions in the area. It’s true that Disney Quest may cease to exist on July 3, 2017, but then it’s leaving for good. There are many new and incredible experiences waiting to take their turn, and the NBA Experience is definitely the perfect substitute to start with.

The NBA Experience at Disney Springs

The NBA Experience at Disney Springs


The NBA Experience at Walt Disney World Resort is a never-before basketball-themed attraction, featuring hands on activities, high-tech immersive experiences, including a restaurant and a retail store. The new attraction will put you right in the middle of your favorite NBA actions. Officialticketcenter.com will bring to you more on this as and when Disney make further revelations, including the announcement of its opening.
