A “Star Wars”-themed land is coming to both Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida and Disneyland in Anaheim, California in 2019.
Construction is underway and if you head to both parks you can see it being worked on in real time.
If you’re visiting the new Toy Story Land in Disney World’s Hollywood Studios, you can get a good look at “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.”
Not only can you see it before entering the park, but you can see it while walking through the park.
The main entrance appears to be in the North West area of the park by the Muppet Vision 3D ride.
Other good looks at the park can be seen inside Toy Story Land. The best peek at “Galaxy’s Edge” can be viewed from the new Slinky Dog Dash coaster.
INSIDER found two other possible entrances that will link “Galaxy’s Edge” to Toy Story Land and Pixar Place in Hollywood Studios.
Families may be heading to Disney World’s Hollywood Studios right now for the newly opened Toy Story Land, but you’ll also get a sneak peek at the new Star Wars land that’s being built if you know where to look.
INSIDER was down at Disney World for the opening of Toy Story Land at the end of June and Disney isn’t even trying to hide the construction of the massive 14-acre area.
It really can’t.
At 2017’s D23 Expo, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek said the addition of “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” in both California’s Disneyland and Florida’s Walt Disney World will be the largest single-themed expansion into the parks ever. (You can read more on the new park here and see exactly how it will look here.)
So where can you see the construction?
There are two main areas where you can see work on “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” taking place, before you enter Hollywood Studios and once you’re inside in Toy Story Land. Don’t expect to see anything crazy, but if you’re lucky you may get a peek behind closed doors.
Before you enter Hollywood Studios, keep your eyes peeled.
If you’re heading to the parks early in the morning to beat the rush, you may be compelled to get an extra bit of rest in before the long day ahead. Don’t do that if you’re a “Star Wars” fan heading to Hollywood Studios.
Before you even enter the park, you pass by construction of “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” during your drive in on your left. You can’t miss it. You may even see some men at work.
On my first ride into Hollywood Studios on Toy Story Land opening day, I wasn’t prepared to see the buildings out in the open. Granted, you can’t see much. From the outside, the buildings just look like warehouses. But make sure to turn your head around in the vehicle you’re in and you may be able to make out shapes of mountains and some towers for outposts.
