At D23's 2017 Expo Bob Chapek, chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, announced that a new transportation service is coming to Disney World, and it only gets better: the vehicles will Minnie Mouse-themed!
Most of the additions - from a "Star Wars"-themed hotel to a live-entertainment theater at Magic Kingdom - were announced at the D23 Expo without an opening date, usually deferring to them being in place by the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World, which would be October 1, 2021".
"Both "Star Wars"-inspired lands will transport guests to a never-before-seen planet, a remote trading port, and one of the last stops before Wild Space, where "Star Wars" characters and their stories come to life", Disney said in a blog post about the expansion". From Disneyland Halloween Time dates to a Star Wars-Themed Hotel, D23 was full of exciting news.
Is the Main Street Electrical Parade returning to Walt Disney World? Once you leave Earth, you will discover a starship alive with characters, stories, and adventures that unfold all around you. Disney has finally pulled back the curtains and unveiled the first look into its highly anticipated Star Wars lands! "It is 100% immersive, and the story will touch every single minute of your day, and it will culminate in a unique journey for every person who visits". For now, East Coast Disney fans can hope to see the return of this classic sometime this Fall. Earlier this year, Disney was conducting a guest survey regarding the new hotel, as reported by Inside the Magic, and that survey gave an idea as to how much a stay there would be.
