Walt Disney World to add Star Wars, Cars Land

Robert Niles of Theme Park Insider reports from multiple sources that Star Wars and Cars Land are finally coming to Walt Disney World.

It’s expected that these attractions will provide the boost necessary to keep up with all the expansion at Universal Orlando, which is in the middle of creating a new Harry Potter attraction at Universal Studios, along with Transformers and Simpsons’ Springfield. Niles describes it as the Battle of Orlando, adding “theme park fans will be winners.”

Niles believes Cars Land will replace the Lights, Motors, Action auto stunt show and Catastrophe Canyon at the south edge of the park. Star Wars Land, he adds, may be located between Star Tours and the auto stunt show stadium, eliminating the Muppet theater and Honey, I Shrunk the Kids; or it may be on the site of the Backlot Express restaurant and Indiana Jones stunt show theater. He says the first choice is more likely given those attractions have passed their height of popularity.

Timing? Niles says completion is pegged for 2017 or 2018, depending on how much money Disney wants to spend.
