Star Wars Land at Disneyland

We have a separate thread for what's happening in Florida, this is for strictly Star Wars development in California (which might someday include a hidden Indy or two). We can still dream of an Indy Land, but not where the Young Indy Adventure Spectacular was intended to go.

This is one guess how they'll cram a 14 acres land into an 85 acre park. The train will likely get an interesting new tunnel. Big Thunder Ranch and backstage corrals are gone after January 10. They're closing and draining the River probably for a year so no one will see any demolition or deforestation by the quietest chainsaws available.
Quote:
Work to make room for this new land at Disneyland park in California will require the Rivers of America and the Disneyland Railroad to close temporarily. The following will suspend operations at the end of the operating day on January 10: The Disneyland Railroad, including all stations, Attractions along the Rivers of America, including: “Fantasmic!”, Mark Twain Riverboat and Sailing Ship Columbia, Pirate’s Lair on Tom, Sawyer Island, and Davy Crockett Explorer Canoes. We look forward to all of these attractions reopening in the future. Elsewhere in Frontierland, Big Thunder Ranch – including Big Thunder Ranch Barbecue, Big Thunder Ranch Petting Farm and Big Thunder Ranch Jamboree – will close permanently at the end of the operating day on January 10.
Strange things are happening...

I really want to go when this is all finished. This is going to be the biggest expansion at Disneyland for quite some time, and even though I have been hearing that ticket prices will go up again, I still kind of want to go.

Disneyland will finally beat a path all the way around the Rivers. Also erode the island, reroute the railroad and relocate the Indians.

*sigh* But I guess I'm one of those "it belongs in a museum!" types.

We rode the Columbia and Mark Twain around and visited Big Thunder Ranch on its final day. Hopefully the new Land will suck some of the crowds out of the rest of the park. But I'm not optimistic.

Tomorrow they shoot a Disneyland 60th special with Ford, discussing the new expansion, airing February 21 on ABC.

Sweet, I'll be there with the family. I'll wear something for you to notice me.

A mermaid bar? Lucasfilm knows pubescent boys.
Did Ford say anything after the clip?

And, alcohol.

The cantina adheres to a strict code of conduct that tries to keep its unruly patrons in check. But with a history of being a smugglers’ safe haven and a popular stopping point for those seeking to avoid the authorities, you can bet that the cantina has a story or two to tell.
And, gambling? Indians used to dwell on this land.

Why does Disneyland keep Frontierland at all?

Don't worry. Eventually political correctness will sweep that away too.
