You will also be able to dine on local delicacies in a dinner show and a Star Wars cantina, though it doesn’t appear to be the same one we’re so familiar with.

    Star Wars land what year it will be open

    1. Disney hasn’t announced an opening date yet, but my guess is that it won’t open until 2019.

    2. A1anne

      Most likely 2021.

    Where will this be in the Disneyland Park
    Is something coming out?

    1. RJ

      From Wikipedia: “In September 2015, Disneyland Resort announced that on January 11, 2016, Big Thunder Ranch would close permanently, and the Disneyland Railroad and Rivers of America would be temporarily closed — this includes the Mark Twain Riverboat, Sailing Ship Columbia, Davy Crockett Explorer Canoes, Tom Sawyer Island, and Fantasmic!.[14]

      An official Disneyland Twitter account confirmed that the Rivers of America will have a new route when it reopens from construction.[15]’

      Like RJ said. The Big Thunder Ranch, including the petting zoo, BBQ, and every thing else behind Big Thunder Mountain will close. They are also rerouting the Rivers of America to cut across the north end of Tom Sawyer’s Island. And changing the alinement of the Disnyland Railroad. SW Land will also take up a bunch of the back stage area in that part of the park.

    “Millennium” falcon. Not Millenium

  4. Tyler

    It sounds like it will be amazing, but at the same time, what does it have to do with Disney. When you think of Disney, you think of his classics like Snow White, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Peter Pan, etc.

    1. Doom

      Disney owns Star Wars now. So, when you think Disney, you must now think Star Wars. Same with Marvel Comics, Disney owns them too. Disney isn’t stagnant, it was made in the mid 1900’s, but it doesn’t stay there.

      1. Brother Sun

        Disney also owns ABC television so I think they should build “Bachelor/Bachelorette in Paradise Land”, where hot eligible singles get to mingle on a tropical island beach, go on “fantasy dates” and at the end of the “ride”, maybe give/get a rose indicating a real love connection.

          You’re hilarious!

    Can’t wait for Star Wars land! More of the regular Disneyland all for me!

  6. Wow! Star Wars land. By the time it opens I’ll have to take out a Loan from Jabba the Hut to afford it.
    Proably raise the admission price to $200 Imperial Credits per person and $250 on Holidays like the Emperior’s Birthday.
    Maybe Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru can lend me the money….oh wait
