The land at each park will each encompass 14 acres and that construction on both versions of the land would begin in April 2016. Construction began at both locations on April 14, 2016. On February 7, 2017, it was announced by CEO Bob Iger during The Walt Disney Company’s quarterly earnings conference call that both Star Wars Lands are scheduled to open in 2019.

The land will immerse the guest into the Star Wars universe. According to Iger, it will be “occupied by many inhabitants; humanoids, aliens and droids … the attractions, the entertainment, everything we create will be part of our storytelling. Nothing will be out of character or stray from the mythology.

Released during this years Star Wars Celebration, Orlando, is an update on how the construction is proceeding.

Well I did not travel to Orlando, and to be honest I have seen more on the Live Stream than I probably would have going there, after queuing so much in London last year.

I will put together some information early next week highlighting what I thought were the major points.

stay tuned….

Hi there, I know it’s been a little while. Well while we are all waiting for the release of The Last Jedi teaser/trailer and/or Celebration, here is what I have been up to!

Recently my family and I went for a 4 night stay at Disneyland Paris to watch the Season of the Force and the other Star Wars related shows that have been on.

We stayed at the very comfortable Sequoia Lodge hotel, within easy reach of both the Disney Studios & Disneyland Park. NOTE: – do get the full board meal option.

Check out my gallery of pictures here:
