I'm excited to see what this means for Star Tours and perhaps future Star Wars related attractions in the parks!

Star Wars is too big for a "land". It needs a whole park. Just look at HP. It was so popular that they're expanding into a second park already. Star Wars is probably the only brand that could not only match, but actually top HP. People are talking about what an amazing world Disney could build from Avatar. Star Wars has infinitely more potential.

How about Disney's Galactic Kingdom?

Imagine the possibilities.

Possibilities are one thing, practicality is another. The Orlando economics do not justify a 5th major gate until the existing 4 parks are starting to suffer capacity problems. And they're not.

So, for WDW, it's a question of how and where to fit Star Wars into the existing parks. For other Disney locations around the world, it may (or may not) make sense to have a separate Star Wars park.

I don't think that's a good idea, especially with Future World and Tomorrowland. Now, changing some existing attractions to be Star Wars themed or adding mroe Star Wars to Hollywood Studios would be a good idea...then again I think Wall-E needs to be represented first.

Yeah a whole park would be a bad idea, but a whole land at DHS would be awesome !

I wish DHS would get an Star Wars Land and a Cars Land and then throw in a Indiana Jones ride. That park would quickly become one of my favorites then. Right now, the way it is, It sucks IMVHO

Rumor has it DHS is the next to get an update. Makes sense since Avatarland is on the backburner, Magic Kingdom has New Fantasyland and Epcot has new test track now.
