Thanks to our friends over at Fresh Baked Disney, we have another weekly look at how the construction of Star Wars land is going over at Disneyland Park. Here is a look at the project as of June 10th, 2017:
The race is on to complete the new riverbank for the Rivers of America before the 4th of July crowds arrive.
Trees are being moved into place currently, a good sign as landscaping usually is one of the last phases of a project like this.
Looking at the Star Wars site, we can see that they are getting close to enclosing the strange circular room which may be part of the pre-show experience for the “Battle Escape” attraction.
Meanwhile, the show building for Disney’s most advanced attraction ever built continues to grow…
Another look at this strange circular room which will present some special effect that will transport guests to the battle.
Back in Disneyland, the train trestle is getting painted.
The riverfront looks to be nearing completion.
A peek through a knothole reveals a pathway that will go along the shoreline and into Star Wars Land, passing under the train tracks.
As always, Fresh Baked Disney also has a video of the construction that you should check out:
Tom has been regularly visiting the Walt Disney World® Resort from the time he was 4 months old. While he has made countless visits in the last 28 years, he did not become a truly active member in the Disney fan community until the summer of 2007, when he decided to launch the WDW News Today website and podcast. Tom has since become an Orlando-local and is a published author on Walt Disney World.
