First and foremost, just last night Disney released, much earlier that expected, (which hadn’t even officially started yet) a model of Star Wars Land at he event. The entire set up will be on display throughout the weekend and it is truly hard to put into words. The model is gigantic and based on live video rolling out from the event this morning, it looks as if cast are telling guests that this is in fact the model for Disneyland. There have been a few inconsistencies in that fact, but if it is the case, this will be a huge expansion for Disneyland. Honestly, it will be interesting to see how it will fit in the park!
Another aspect worth mentioning is that if this is the size of the Disneyland model, I can only imagine what the Disney World version could look like when it is complete. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the display that I see getting overlooked by many sources is the small window on the model which showcase the “entrance” into this new land. It truly will be like stepping into a different galaxy. Based on what has been debuted so far, it looks as if you will step through an opening in the path (which blocks your view) creating a grand reveal as you enter the new land!
If you haven’t seen the images yet, be sure to check out the photos debuted by the Disney Parks Blog included in this post!

Last, but not least, a few vague details were shared about an upcoming Disneytoon studios film about the next generation of aviation in the “cars/planes” realm of films. While the concept is title-less right now, more details will likely arrive in the future. Pixar also shared some more info about a continuing franchise we all know and love, Toy Story. The next leg in the series will be Toy Story 4 and will be directed by Josh Cooley. While very little was shared about the film itself, it is supposed to debut June 21st, 2019. Frozen 2 was also supposedly mentioned at the event and is set to debut November 27th, 2019. If all of these films debut at the set dates, 2019 will be a huge year for animation!
Well, that about wraps up the highlights for today, but be sure to return right back to this post tomorrow for even more info as it is shared. Again, we are not at the event, but will get the facts and our opinions out to you as soon as we can! Thanks for reading!
UPDATE: Saturday 9:25pm
After the mass release of Disney parks info that just rolled out in the parks and resorts panel, we’re going to take some time and really look at the whole release. We should have a full report at some point in the next day or so. Thanks for sticking with us. There’s a lot to take in. This will likely be the end of this post and a new article will roll out with more info!
