In a quarterly earnings meeting, Disney CEO Bob Iger announced that Star Wars Land at Disneyland and at Disney World will open in 2019.
Fans looking for the ultimate immersive Star Wars experience will find it at Disney Parks in just two years.
At a quarterly earnings meeting earlier today, Disney’s CEO Bob Iger revealed the company hopes to open Star Wars Land at both Disneyland in California and Disney World in Florida in 2019 (via Comicbook).
The Walt Disney Company first announced its plans to build two Star Wars-themed parks in 2015. Construction on the parks began in April 2016. Planned attractions include a Millennium Falcon ride and an immersive First Order/Resistance battle. Each Star Wars Land will also feature a fully-staffed Cantina populated with characters from the franchise.

Last year, Disney filed a patent for a lightsaber-laser deflection system. Presumably, if it was/is successfully developed, the system will allow Star Wars Land attendees to feel like they are real Jedi or Sith in a galaxy far, far away (in the style of the wands at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter).
It is also rumored that Disney is working on interactive droids which will wander around the parks.
