Work continues at the Disneyland and Walt Disney World parks on Star Wars-themed "lands" planned to debut in 2019.

The latest update on the construction going on at Anaheim (preceded by news of Indy 5, Last Jedi, and Rebels):

Wife wants to go to Disney World for our upcoming 20th anniversary and I keep saying "Noooooo, let's wait until 2019!"

Go both times.  I have hit WDW several times for "no kids" trips, including my honeymoon. Time of year makes a big difference for success in such trips.  As a world traveler for work, (over 150k miles last year) I'm a WDW addict for vacationing.

I thought I would drop this here, rather than start a new Disneyland/World thread.  But holy cow! regarding the new Pandora area in Animal Kingdom and the GotG ride in Disney Land!

I can't imagine standing in any single line for such a period of time. In the case of GotG, this was just a reimagining of an existing ride. I'm thinking I may have to wait a could of years to try the Star Wars land when it breaks. Even the line just to get into the Pandora area was hours long. Wow!

Hm, I hate Avatar and all it stands for, so I won't be too heartbroken missing out on it. 

I don't want to even think about the lines for Star Wars land.  Yikes.

I don't really care about the Avatar films, but on some level it's pretty cool they had a practice run for making an immersive Star Wars space.

I've never been to DisneyLand. What's the average number of rides you get to go on per day?
I imagine that it has to be one of the most expensive cost/ride experiences that there is.

I find Disneyland to be a better value in terms of amusement parks. These
days, I tend to go on a 3 day pass and take things at a more leisurely pace, but
if I wanted to do the park from open to close, I could probably hit 15+ rides and
that's with time spent on parades, dining, and other exhibits.

The crazy long lines for the new rides tend to be full of Annual Pass holders
who go once a month and are fine with spending several hours in line for the
new thing.
