We cannot be more excited for what is coming to our local Disney parks in the next couple of years. This geek family is really looking forward to Star Wars, but we are also thrill about hearing about more Marvel things and off course a family favorite Pixar.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge
During a special presentation of the D23 Expo 2017, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts President Bob Chapek unveiled the Star Wars areas that are under construction at Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California.
"The land will feature two major attractions that put guests in the middle of a battle between the First Order and the Resistance. Each attraction – and even the land itself – will offer guests the chance to immerse themselves in the Star Wars universe like never before.
One attraction will make you feel like you’re on a Star Destroyer inside a hangar bay. It’s an attraction built on a scale we’ve never done before.
The second attraction will give guests the opportunity to fly the Millenium Falcon, piloting the ship, shooting blasters or preparing for hyperspace – all while completing a critical mission. But how you perform on the mission holds even bigger stakes: perform with skill and you may earn extra galactic credits, while bringing the ship back banged up could put you on the list of a bounty hunter. End up on Harkos’s list and you may face a problem if you show up at the local cantina!
Guests will also encounter many familiar faces inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, including BB-8, Chewbacca, members of the First Order and – among many others – Rex, the troublesome pilot you may remember from the previous version of a certain Disney attraction who takes on a new role in this land as the DJ at the cantina.
And speaking of the cantina, here guests will be able to try unique concoctions like blue milk. Nearby, they’ll also be able to acquire trinkets and treasures from across the galaxy.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will open in 2019, at the Disneyland Resort, although specific dates are not confirmed yet."
Immersive Super Hero Experience Coming to Disney California Adventure Park
I guess Summer of Heroes is going to stay with us for a little longer. Soon, the Guardians of the Galaxy will be joined by Spider-Man and the Avengers in what will become a completely immersive Super Hero universe at the park. (I guess we could call it Marvel Land)
These new stories will build on the success of the new and already popular Guardians of the Galaxy — Mission: BREAKOUT! and create a place where you can team up with your favorite Super Heroes like never before. We cannot wait for more details, are you as excited as we are?
New Pixar Pier to Bring Favorite Pixar Stories to Life at Disney California Adventure Park
In 2018, more of your favorite Pixar stories will come to Disney California Adventure Park with the new Pixar Pier which will feature a brand-new look for the area now known as Paradise Pier, as some of your favorite characters come to life on this seaside waterfront. You will discover whimsical neighborhoods filled with your friends from “The Incredibles,” “Inside Out” and even more of your pals from “Toy Story.”
This permanent addition to the park will open during a new limited-time celebration taking place throughout the Disneyland Resort in 2018 — Pixar Fest! The celebration will feature a brand new fireworks spectacular as well as the return of the one of our favorites, the Pixar Play Parade.
Which one are you more excited about?
