Disney is getting serious about ramping up the Star Wars presence at its theme parks.
Epic Star Wars-themed lands are coming to Disneyland and Disney World. But another announcement made at the D23 Expo on Saturday, August 15 was the upcoming addition of a new seasonal Star Wars event–Season of the Force.
For this event, Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Disney World will conclude weekend nights with a new fireworks show set to music from the Star Wars movies. That’s pretty cool. But plans at Disneyland sound amazing. The park’s Tomorrowland will have special entertainment and Star Wars-themed food. And, best of all, Space Mountain (my favorite ride) will get a Star Wars makeover.
Disney explains, “Guests also will also climb aboard Hyperspace Mountain, a reimagining of the classic Space Mountain attraction, in which guests will join an X-wing Starfighter battle.”
Season of the Force is coming in early 2016. We’re anxiously waiting for more details.
