From Disney Blog:
In these all-new lands, guests will be transported to a never-before-seen planet inhabited by humanoids, droids and many others. Star Wars-themed lands will be the largest-ever single-themed land expansions at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort.
As reported by Theme Park Insider Disneyland actually broke ground months ago.
As many Disneyland visitors have seen — and is obvious from the panoramic image — Disney actually broke ground for the project months ago, shortly after closing the Rivers of America attractions in January. Demolition of the existing park locations, berm and backstage support facilities on the 14-acre construction site has been swift. Drivers approaching the Mickey and Friends parking structure via the flyover from the Interstate 5 exit have the best view of the site, which now offers an unobstructed view of the cleared land all the way back to Big Thunder Mountain.
A similar construction and expansion is underway at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida.
In Florida, Walt Disney World recently closed the Streets of America and the Lights, Motors, Action stunt show in Hollywood Studios, clearing the way for the start of construction on the east-coast version of Star Wars Land.
On each coast, Star Wars Land will feature two major attractions: one where riders will fly the Millennium Falcon and another where they will be caught in a battle with the villainous First Order. The land also will include Cantina dining, character meet and greets, abundant retail, and role-playing cast members, creating the experience of visiting a new planet in the Star Wars universe.
