This year the big news this year is of course that Disney has doubled down on Star Wars. Long a fixture at Walt Disney World with the Star Tours ride, Disney opened more – including a store, a meet and greet, and a projection/firework show shortly before our visit in 2015. Now they are working on opening a Star Wars land in both Disneyland and Hollywood Studios (personally I think they ought to have a whole park to themselves) scheduled to open in 2019.
I don’t have a great story to share this year so how about some links?
