There’s a rumor going around that a big expansion is in the works over at Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida and, as part of that expansion, we may see an East Coast version of Cars Land and (be still my heart) the first ever Star Wars Land.

Yep. Multiple sources have told me the long-awaited dream of theme park geeks everywhere is actually happening. Disney’s moving ahead with both Cars Land and Star Wars Land at the Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World.
I spoke to a Disney Cast Member who not only confirmed Niles’ report, but added some new information. This Cast Member heard directly from Disney supervisors that Disney is discussing building a Cantina-themed restaurant in the new Hollywood Studios Star Wars area.
Seems to me, that’s a lot of chatter over at Disney from multiple sources that all points to loads of fun for Star Wars and Cars fans. Of course, it was a given that Disney would eventually make this move after acquiring the rights to Star Wars earlier this year—but now we might know the where and when.
I’m definitely going to be keeping an eye out for more news on this and I’m gonna have to start saving my pennies now so I can head to Florida when it’s time to get my Star Wars geekdom on.
