In the same quarterly earnings conference call where Bob Iger announced the opening date for Pandora – The World of Avatar, Star Wars Land was mentioned at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World.
Though details are still very scarce, Bob did confirm that both lands would be opening at some point in 2019.
Though we were slightly off in guessing when Pandora would be opening (thinking it would open later in the summer than the announced May date), both Dan and I have predicted many times on the Theme Park Trader podcast that Star Wars Land would be opening in 2019, the same year as Star Wars Episode IX.
I can’t wait to see what Disney do with Star Wars Land, not too long to wait now!
No word on Toy Story Land yet at Disney’s Hollywood Studios but our suspicions are that this will be Summer 2018.
