    So there has been a few announcements today about what is closing at Hollywood Studios to make way for Star Wars Land. I can't find one source for all rumours but WDW News Today on Twitter have summed it up pretty well with this tweet.

    So that everything at the back of Toy Story Mania and The Muppet Theatre including, the now closed, Studio Tour, Monsters Inc Meet and Greet and The Streets of America.

    The big tease of what Disney has planned for “Star Wars” inside its theme parks continues 11 months before “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” flies into theaters.

    Disney chief Bob Iger told Wall Street analysts that there’s “a fair amount of design and development (taking place by the company’s Imagineers) to greatly increase ‘Star Wars” presence in multiple locations around the world,” shortly after the Mouse House announced another strong financial quarter. “The plans are ambitious, so it’s going to take some time for them to be built and opened.”

    While Iger said specific plans would be announced “later in 2015,” the executive already had announced “significant” plans for the franchise for which it paid George Lucas $4 billion in 2012. He also has said whatever new attractions are announced, they will be based on future films in the series, as well as its spinoffs. Several Disney parks currently include an updated version of the “Star Tours” attraction.

    In a separate interview with Bloomberg Television, Iger said, “Fairly soon, I’m sure we’ll be ready to go public with some specifics. But it’s safe to say that you’ll see a lot more ‘Star Wars’ at Disney and at Disney parks in the near future.”

  5. Disney CEO Bob Iger said during an earnings call on Tuesday that the company is "developing designs for a far greater 'Star Wars' presence in the parks," according to multiple reports.

    “When we grow ‘Star Wars'' presence, which we will do significantly, you will see better bets being made that will pay off for us than were made in the past,” Iger said, according to Variety.

    Details of the expansion will not be revealed until next year.

  8. Disney has confirmed new Star Wars and Avatar attractions are coming to Disney World.
    The news was broken on Disney's Insider blog by Dave Fisher, show producer at Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Pavilion, when talking about what to expect at the D23 Expo in August.

    "We have a technology called DISH, which stands for Digital Immersive Showroom, and we'll show how it’s helped us design several attractions — visitors will be able to virtually ride two attractions, the same way we do when we're testing them," said Fisher.

    "We're also going to be doing sneak peeks at upcoming projects including Disney Springs, the re-imagining of Downtown Disney at Walt Disney World Resort. There will be teasers for Avatar and Star Wars at the Disney Parks."

    The Orlando Business Journal says that the Star Wars theme park plans to “dwarf any other Disney-related expansion in its recent history.” Furthermore, the plans call for a project costing more than $200 million (which was the initial estimates when rumors first surfaced).

    The same source told the Business Journal that while the Cars Land rumors are also accurate, they are nothing compared to what’s in store for Star Wars.
