Disney Reveals Epic, Model of Star Wars-Themed Lands

During a special preview of D23 Expo 2017, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek unveiled a first look at the epic, richly detailed model of the Star Wars-themed lands under development at Disneyland park in Anaheim, Calif. and Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Fla. This stunning exhibition, on display in Walt Disney Parks and Resorts’ “A Galaxy of Stories” pavilion at D23 Expo, is yet another example of the breathtaking new worlds, immersive storytelling and transformational guest experiences that set Disney apart.

“To say we are excited for the Star Wars-themed lands to open in 2019 is an understatement,” Chapek said. “All along, we have said this will be game-changing, and through the model we can begin to see how truly epic these immersive new worlds will be.”

Chapek plans to share exciting new details about the project during the Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Hall D23 Presentation on Saturday. The model will remain on display at the pavilion throughout the weekend to give visitors an up-close look at what’s to come on this never-before seen planet. In addition, the pavilion will display models, artwork and media that provide a first-ever look at some of the locations, starships, creatures, and droids that guests will encounter when they visit this new planet.

At D23 Expo 2015, The Walt Disney Company Chairman and CEO Bob Iger announced the Star Wars project to the delight of thousands of fans in attendance. The jaw-dropping new lands will open with two anchor attractions – one that gives guests the chance to pilot the Millennium Falcon on a customized secret mission, and one that puts guests right in the middle of a battle between the First Order and the Resistance. Representing the largest single-themed land expansion at 14 acres each, the Star Wars-themed lands will open in 2019.

However, guests don’t need to wait until 2019 to be immersed in the Star Wars galaxy. From special character encounters to fan-favorite attractions like Star Tours – The Adventures Continue, and interactive entertainment like Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple, guests of all ages can experience Star Wars stories at Disney parks and resorts around the world.

First Look: Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

The much anticipated, and long awaited Pandora – The World of Avatar in Disney’s Animal Kingdom finally opened to the public on Memorial Day Weekend, and we were there. To say it was busy would be the understatement of the year.

Crowds were incredibly large and the wait times were a testament to the patience of a die hard Disney fan. In fact, the crowds were so large that, at times there was a 2 hour wait just to get into that section of the park so you could then wait up to 4 more hours to get to experience one of two new attractions; Na’vi River Journey, a boat ride deep into a bioluminescent rainforest in search of the Na’vi Shaman of Songs, or Avatar Flight of Passage, an expedition that lets interstellar explorers like you climb atop a mountain banshee for a breathtaking, first-person flight over the moon’s incredible landscape.

There were even waiting lines to get into the gift shops.

Needless to say, a six hour wait is a little extreme, but we did bring back a great collection of photos to give you an idea of the detail that went into creating this amazing world.

2017 Spring Training – Florida’s Grapefruit League

Spring is just around the corner… and spring training is about to begin! Florida is the home of Major League Baseball’s Grapefruit League and spring training 2017.

Spring training typically lasts about six weeks, starting in late February and running until just before the season opening day (and often right at the end of spring training, some teams will play spring training games on the same day other teams have opening day of the season), traditionally the first week of April. Pitchers and catchers report to spring training first because pitchers benefit from a longer training period. A few days later, the position players arrive and team practice begins. Team members normally wear their batting practice uniforms for the duration of spring training and only wear their normal jerseys beginning on Opening Day.

Below you’ll find 2017 Spring Training park information, maps, and home game schedules for all the teams. Catch a game!
