PHOTOS, VIDEO: Star Wars Land Construction Update at Disneyland Park for May 27th, 2017

Thanks to our friends over at Fresh Baked Disney, we have a look at how the construction of Star Wars land is going over on the west coast. We hope to make this a weekly column in collaboration with them, and hope you will enjoy watching the project come together, week by week and piece by piece.

From inside of the park, guests can see work wrapping up on the new north edge of the Rivers of America, complete with a new path for the Disneyland Railroad. No re-opening date for these attractions has been given yet other than Summer 2017.

The train rolling above the river should offer some spectacular views.

As you can see, even though the Summer tourist season has begun, a lot of work remains to be completed.

We’ve seen a lot of construction over the last ten years, but nothing quite like this show building for the “battle” attraction. It is already being billed as the largest, most complex E-Ticket ever constructed.
