Ariel Pictures Show The New Star Wars Park At Walt Disney World

Ariel Pictures Show The New Star Wars Park At Walt Disney World

Rumours have been circulating about just what exactly Disney World and Disneyland's Star Wars world will look like and entail ever since Disney announced it.

Pictures have now emerged of the Disney World edition of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, and it looks just as incredible as any Star Wars fan could possibly have imagined.

At a reported cost of $1bn and spread over a massive 14 acres, it seems to be as epic as it promised to be.


Galaxy's Edge
is due to open on 29th August at Disney World, which is what these pictures show.

However, its sister in Disneyland Anaheim will open on 31st May.

If you're hoping to run off and explore it as soon as possible, you're probably out of luck.

The rush the park is expecting is so major that Disney is attempting to implement a bathroom system to prevent major queues.

And if you even want to get on any of the Star Wars rides, you'll likely be waiting half your day out. Maybe we can recommend going in a year's time when the hype dies down?

The pictures that were taken at Disney World in Florida start to just about show the massive scale of the operation - the car park next to it might give you some idea.

As well as the recognisable Star Wars buildings and ships in the images, we can see cranes and diggers that are creating even more ridiculous rides to bring visitors in their droves. All of that and a scale replica of the Millennium Falcon, which is likely to be huge.

All of this is a massive development from Star Tours, and the very limited Star Wars merch stores and attractions currently at Disney parks.

Both Anaheim and Disney World will also feature a number of restaurants with Star Wars inspired names, like Ronto Roasters and Oga's Cantina. They will also actually sell booze, which currently is only available at Disney California Adventure in Anaheim rather than the main park.

In anticipation of the rush, Disney tickets got even more expensive back in January, rising to $104 for one day entry into one park at off-peak times. However, it's likely to be completely worth it - looking at the major scale of the photos, this is the biggest thing that Disney have ever done, and the most exciting by far. You can watch the trailer for Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge below.
