2019 Find Out What’s Coming to Walt Disney World® Resort
Disney’s Hollywood Studios
There’s no need to travel to a galaxy far, far away when Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is right here in Orlando. Offering an authentic and fully immersive galactic experience, those who enter Galaxy’s Edge will quickly forget all about Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Orlando, about Earth, for that matter.
Galaxy’s Edge is an all-new, 14-acre theme park at Walt Disney World® Resort, complete with everything you need to live out your wildest dreams of adventures in hyperspace.
You can take the Millennium Falcon out for a spin, try that blue and green milk Luke Skywalker drinks, join the Resistance, build your own lightsaber, and get Jedi powers!
Watch Out for Stormtroopers
They’re known to patrol Black Spire Outpost in search of any locals or travelers who sympathize with the Resistance. You could be interrogated by a band of First Order Stormtroopers, or you may spot Chewbacca rounding up new recruits for the Resistance.
Best decide on which side your allegiance lies.
Explore Batuu and Black Spire Outpost
In case you’re unfamiliar with the locale, Black Spire Outpost is a bustling village on the planet of Batuu. Situated on the outskirts of civilization, at the frontier of Wild Space, Black Spire is where the smugglers, rogues, and nefarious traders make a living and enjoy a reprieve from the oppressions of the First Order. Travelers come to peruse the stalls, to buy rare and unusual artifacts, to indulge in galactic cuisine, and to visit one of the most infamous watering holes in the galaxy.
Walt Disney World® Resort
Along with the buses, boats, monorails, and Mini Vans, transportation options at Walt Disney World® Resort will soon include gondolas. Starting this fall, you can enjoy scenic views while traveling high above the treetops aboard the Disney Skyliner.
Disney Skyliner: A Nod to the Days of Yore
Skyway was a slow-moving, cable-car-like attraction that operated at the Magic Kingdom Park, between Fantasyland and Tomorrowland, during the 70’s through 90’s. Now, almost 20 years later, the gondolas are back and better than ever.
The new Disney Skyliner is a modern, high-tech version of Skyway. Initially, the route will feature six Skyliner stations, most notably at Epcot® and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Epcot® World Showcase Lagoon
After a dazzling 20-year run, “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth,” takes a final bow on September 30, making way for “Epcot® Forever” at World Showcase Lagoon on October 1.
Taking you on a trip down memory lane, through the past, present, and future, the show features a collection of songs that depict a colorful picture of Epcot’s journey throughout the years. This all-new nighttime extravaganza includes fireworks, music, lighting, lasers, and choreographed special effects.
