During this summers D23 Expo 2017, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek revealed a richly detailed scale model of the Star Wars-themed lands slated for Walt Disney World in Florida and Disneyland in California. The expansions will officially be called Star Wars: Galaxys Edge. If all that wasnt enough for fans to begin booking their next Disney getaway, Chapek also took the wraps off the long-rumored Star Wars-themed resort.
With enough fresh info to fill the Millennium Falcons cargo hold, we made like Bothan spies and carefully collected all new and existing intel for your reference. For details on everything from the Galaxys Edge story, setting, and E-ticket attractions to a hotel stay that promises to put you in a galaxy far, far away like never before, please read on.
A sprawling new planet
Star Wars: Galaxys Edge may be based on science fictions most popular universe, but the expansion will actually unfold on an entirely new planet. While its name hasnt been revealed, the fresh setting has been described as an outer-rim frontier town and trading port, a remote spot thats occupied by people and aliens of all stripes, including those of the scum-and-villainy variety. Guests can plan on spending plenty of time on the planet, as the 14-acre area represents the parks largest single-themed land expansions....

Premium Annual Passes are $1000 now. Day tickets are just over $100.
You must be kidding?
My first thought was, Westworld.
We spent over 20 years going to Orlando for vacations. A season pass to Universal Studios was barely over the price of a one day ticket and if you visited different Timeshare resorts, for a sales pitch you could get a couple of passes to Walt Disney World. You were also able to buy leftover days from people who bought multiday passes to WDW and didn’t plan on going back. We bought a timeshare for over 90% off of the original price and used it to trade into Disney properties that cost more for a week than we paid for the timeshare. In other words, with a bit of planning and sweat equity you could actually do Orlando on the cheap. Now it’s like saving to buy a new car. When Disney announced they were going to pricing based on crowd size we left and will never go back. Disney won’t miss us. The record crowds get bigger every year so even though it seems incredibly expensive they still haven’t reached a price tipping point. We didn’t hang around to see what that tipping point was.
That’s one thing that led me to move back to Texas. After having a premium Disneyland annual pass for 7 years, that was too much.
i last went to wdw around the time epcot opened. It was already a very political/anti USofA place though i was not into politics to realize it for that. They replaced workers with cheap foreigners, they support LGBT themed attractions for children. Why on earth would anyone want to buy anything disney these days let alone attend a way overpriced park even if you got in at discount?
I really love Disney World, but doubt I’ll be returning.
I’ve already begun planning. My last trip, for a family of four for four days, cost $3100 including lodging, meals, knicknacks and “getting there” (not counting collision repair damage to my car, that was on me).
Worth every penny IMHO. Want to do it just about exactly the same way though the headcount might be minus one, and may fly instead of drive.
Looking forward to this addition.
Who cares? Star Wars was over after Empire Strikes Back.
Disney is the enemy. Dont spend your money on Disney.
Disney has become to fixated of fag appeal
