Last night Disney aired their 2-hour Disneyland 60th Anniversary special on ABC. During the relatively disappointing affair Harrison Ford was on hand to introduce a few new small details on the Star Wars themed lands coming to Disneyland and Walt Disney World.
The segment covered most of what we already knew about the 14-acre lands. The many details of the lands were mentioned, including being able to meet plenty of aliens and droids. It'll be great to see so many roaming characters adding to the ambiance of the land. In addition to the cantina already announced a new upscale "dinner club" has been revealed. Don't expect to get a reservation there anytime soon. They also described the land's street market as a place to taste the local delicacies so don't worry about getting an ADR to taste some Star Wars grub.
A first look at a CG rendering of the Millennium Falcon attraction was revealed. Showing a cockpit view of the Falcon where you are in total control. I'm not sure how they will allow you to have complete control over the experience and have a decent capacity for the ride. I'm picturing a sea of individual simulators, but who knows.
First look at the Fist Order vs. The Resistance ride was also shown. This one will likely be the E-ticket of the land. The special showed a ride car on a First Order ship in the middle of a firefight. The ride vehicle showed 4 guests sitting beside one another and I'd assume there is a second row making it 8 per vehicle. Based on the movement this could be a trackless ride vehicle. It did not appear to be any interactive elements but it looks action packed.
We still have no better outlook on the timeline these lands will open, the name of the new planet or names of any attractions but we have plenty of time to get all that information down the road. What do you think of these new Star Wars land details?
