Future WDW Projects

Disney Hollywood Studios

Disney is looking at rebooting Disney's Hollywood Studios with a new name and focus. Gone is the focus on the studio and now the park will focus on the excitement of being fully immersed in lands and attractions based on movie properties. This includes a name change per Jim Hill on the Disney Dish podcast to Disney Hollywood Adventure.

Star Wars Land

Suggested and rumored since 1989, Bob Iger finally announced a Star Wars land at D23 2015. No solid attraction information is available, nor is any timetable. It is believed this will be an expansion to the park, with the land being placed in the parking lot or across the back access street.

The concept art released shows large cliffs and buildings inspired by the many planets in the galaxy. The land will take place on an outer rim planet, where cultures have melded and a trade port set up. Here, the last stop before deep space, you can visit authentic shops, cantinas, and take part in interactive experiences. Rumors place an opening of Star Wars land in 2019 at Disneyland and Disney Hollywood Studios.

Toy Story Land

Toy Story Land will take over the backstage areas behind Toy Story Midway Mania and open in 2018. Here, Andy has set up his toys and you are shrunk down to play in the sets. TSMM's entrance will be rotated and located behind the current entrance while a third track to the ride will add much needed capacity. A green army men flat ride will be a Mater's Junkyard Jamboree clone (this is a good thing) and a Slinky Dog coaster will offer a family coaster between BTMR and Rock'n'Roller Coaster with a launched segment and bunny hills.
