Therefore, it goes for Disneyland, which will have to close the following attractions until it unveils a portion of the park so powerful it may just blow up Alderaan.
Additionally, Big Thunder Ranch will close permanently in January. The attractions included one permanent closure, as well as several temporary closures, which will last over a year.
The temporary farewells includes a caboodle of classics around the Rivers of America as well as The Disneyland Railroad. Disneyland cast members who work at any of the affected attractions will be allowed to move to other areas of the park.
Disney fan site MousePlanet reports that a spokesperson told them the attractions would be closed down for more than a year, though they are all set to reopen.
Also announced at D23 Expo 2015 was “Season of the Force”, a brand new seasonal Star Wars event coming to Disneyland and Disney World “in early 2016”. The Launch Bay also features galleries covering both previous films as well as previews for the upcoming The Force Awakens installment.
OF COURSE, Star Tours, found at the entrance to Tomorrowland, is still doing brisk business, delivering guests into the furthest stretches of the galaxy every few minutes.
“We are creating a jaw-dropping new world that represents our largest single themed land expansion ever”, Iger said. However, to cash in on all the hype and excitement that the upcoming Star Wars film will generate, Disney will be giving Disneyland visitors a foretaste of what’s to come. Star Wars construction is also planned in Orlando, but no dates have been set yet.
In addition, coming in December (TBA) will be a new version of the Jedi Training Academy show titled Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple, which will “introduce new characters and a new villain from the popular Disney XD series, Star Wars Rebels“.
First up is Star Wars Launch Bay, which will give fans a chance to hang out with Darth Vader or Chewbacca.
