Last summer, plans for a Star Wars-inspired destination at Walt Disney World® Resort were unveiled at the D23 Expo.
Today we are happy to share the location of this exciting addition, which is currently under development on the south side of Disney’s Hollywood Studios®, just east of World Drive. This location will allow the experience to be seamlessly connected to the highly-anticipated Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, enabling you to fully immerse yourself in the story of Star Wars.
During Incredible Summer, DinoLand, U.S.A. at Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park is playing host to Donald’s Dino-Bash!, a dinosaur-themed party that celebrates Donald discovery that his bird ancestors were actually dinosaurs.
As a part of the celebration, DinoLand, U.S.A. features colorful new décor and playful character greetings with rarely seen pals like Scrooge McDuck, Launchpad McQuack and more. A DJ-powered dance party also mixes tunes from the truck-o-saurus stage, capping the nighttime festivities.
This weekend at Star Wars: Galactic Nights at Disney’s Hollywood Studios®, we shared some exciting news about Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Walt Disney Imagineering Story Editor, Margaret Kerrison, shared for the first time that the name of the village is called Black Spire Outpost. She also shared some of the history behind the name and how this village is closely associated with the geological formations that surround it.
