First the Jungle Cruise restaurant was confirmed earlier and now another exciting announcement has been made.
At the D23 Expo, Disney has announced that Star Wars land will become a reality in both Disney World and Disneyland. These lands will be the largest single-themed expansions ever and will be 14 acres each.

Guests will get to experience a new Star Wars planet when Star Wars Land opens. Plus they will be able to sit behind the controls of the Millennium Falcon on a customized secret mission.
Walt Disney Company Chairman and CEO Bob Iger gave the Expo audience a glimpse into what we can expect,
“I am thrilled to announce the next chapter in the long and exciting history between Disney Parks and Star Wars,” said Iger. “We are creating a jaw-dropping new world that represents our largest single themed land expansion ever. These new lands at Disneyland and Walt Disney World will transport guests to a whole new Star Wars planet, including an epic Star Wars adventure that puts you in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance.”
I think it’s safe to say that many will be counting down the days until these parks open.
We will keep you posted as updates come in.
