Star Wars: Season of the Force Extended Through Summer 2016; How Long is it Staying?

Disneyland Park has officially extended the Season of the Force event through Summer 2016 as of today.


While Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple and Star Wars Launch Bay are set to be perennial attractions for the park, Path of the Jedi, the automatic Jakku sequence on Star Tours, and Hyperspace Mountain will be sticking around also.

Rumors indicate that Hyperspace Mountain will leave for Ghost Galaxy in September, but will likely return again in November to promote Rogue One which will be released theatrically in December 2016. When will normal Space Mountain return? It may not until the Star Wars-themed land is completed honestly, but that is purely speculation at this point.

Star Tours will remained locked on Jakku as the first destination through at least September 2016, but we are expecting a Rogue One sequence to be added to the ride around November 2016, which perhaps will randomize the earlier sequences for the attraction again. There has been no word on if the Jakku sequence lock has been extended for Walt Disney World.
