The long-awaited Star Wars Land is finally opening — and that’s not all.
2019 is going to be a massive year for Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts, reshaping both parks as Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens in California this summer and Florida in late fall. The 14-acre experience will bring lightsabers, rebel spies, cantina sips and two immersive "Star Wars" attractions to the parks, not to mention every bit of merchandise you’ve been dreaming of scooping up since first seeing Luke Skywalker and Han Solo on film.
Despite the trading outpost’s premiere being the most anticipated event of 2019, Disney has plenty more to offer up throughout the coming year. The next twelve months will bring Mickey Mouse's first-ever ride, never-before-seen entertainment, new restaurants and even a couple of new hotels to the Florida resort. There are even new ways to interact with beloved characters like Edna Mode and Mike Wazowski, cheers to Mickey Mouse’s 90th birthday at a daily party and a new way to get to Epcot in a sky-high gondola that’s like a ride of its own.
With new celebrations coast-to-coast, loads of fresh meet-and-greets and three new nighttime shows, there’s going to be so much going on next year at the Mouse House that you won’t want to miss out on. Read on to discover the two new theme park lands, seven never-before-seen rides and near-dozen experiences that will kick off in 2019:
