As mentioned yesterday, July 30, 2017; there are many new and exciting things coming to the Walt Disney World and Disney Cruise Lines over the next 4 Years. We are so glad to bring this information to you.
You may know that Nelson and I are both Disney Fans, and not just the theme parks and the Animated movies, but when growing up Disney also had their live adventure movies of different destinations and animal movies, that is one of the reasons, we are so passionate about travel, among other reasons. I wish they would bring back The Wonderful World of Disney on Sunday Nights, that was real family evening TV.
Okay let's first talk about not one, not two but three (3) new cruise ships that Disney has ordered that will start arriving in over the next few years. If you have never been on a Disney Cruise Ship, it is all about the service. Whether you have a family traveling or just adults (because these ships you can go off on your own and never hear or see any children, from their spas and dining options to the look and feel of the ships. Disney is like you stepped back in time and arrived on a beautiful luxury liner. Yes, Disney is more money then most but what the include on the ships, is just awesome. No groups can be held, but if you are thinking family reunion, you all have to book at the same time. They even have if you don't want the ocean view, the Magical Portholes in the interior rooms.
Star Wars Land is being called - Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge
New details were revealed about the immersive Star Wars-themed lands that will open in 2019 this past week at Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, including their name—Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. The lands are set in a remote trading port on the edge of wild space, a name that represents all the unknown adventure happening within. (information offered by D23 Expo which, we are members of www.D23.com)
Guests will find themselves in the middle of the action, whether they’re piloting the Millennium Falcon or aboard a Star Destroyer inside a hangar bay. “The scale of this attraction is unlike anything that has ever been done before, indicated from Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek
Walt Disney Imagineers told us “This is a living place, a place where your choices matter.” Guests might see some “galactic credits” come their way, or they could end up on the list of a local bounty hunter.
There’ll, of course, be a cantina for unique drink concoctions (including blue milk!) with a familiar face playing DJ: the droid Rex.
Both lands will open in 2019, but Disneyland in California will be first to open in 2019.
As recently as July 3, 2017; the last time Nelson and I were down at Hollywood Studios, there is a lot of work going on with Toy Story Land being built, plus the work going on with Star Wars Edge, that there will be other things going on prior to the opening of these new lands. Such as A Dedicate ride just for Mickey Mouse, If you think about it, there has never been on. This will be replacing the "Great Movie Ride" at Hollywood Studios, the one inside the replica of Grauman's Chinese Theater that is the center of the park. The structure will still be there but the ride itself is closing August 13. 2017 to add the new Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway it will not be a roller coaster this new innovation ride will not have a track to it, like other rides as we, know them, leave it to Disney to create this stuff, and soon, I am sure all the other Disney Wanna Bees will follow suit.
Okay here is what you have been waiting for, it is not a rumor any longer!
Star Wars-Themed Resort Announced - no opening dates as of yet, but for sure it will be before the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney World October 1, 2021 that is only 4 years away.
From what we understand, you will be able to stay 2 - 3 days the most, and this will definitely be a luxury, full immersion experience staying here. You will have rooms and costumes all designed around Star War, Let's remember Disney owns the rights to Star Wars, this is something you are going to want to save up for. If you are the biggest star wars fan, this is something you are not to want to miss, and when it opens, you will want to book right away, because it will sell out. So you know who to call.
A few other things coming sooner than 2021, stay tuned and find out more.
