So by now you’ve heard that there are several changes in the works at the Disneyland Park. Star Wars Land has been announced, and construction of Disney’s newest Land will be beginning very soon. But what does that mean to Park visitors? How will it impact the Park as you make your way around the happiest place on earth?
Above is a overhead view of the Park and gives you a glance into the area that is rumored to be transformed. As you can see the plan is to use the area that has been used over the years as a holiday park, a dining spot, and even left locked up and setting aside an empty space.
This image shows more closely the proposed area that the new Star Wars Land should occupy . The open areas just above the trees will be used along with portions of the Rivers Of America, and part of the ground that the Rail Road occupy. So during the construction the Mark Twain will be closed, along with the Rail Road, the walk way along the back side of Thunder Mountain Rail Road.
All of these attractions will close for more than a year at Disneyland, including the railroad, Fantasmic! and most everything’s along the Rivers of America.
And, the Big Thunder Ranch, which houses a barbecue restaurant, petting zoo and the Jamboree stage, will close permanently on Jan. 10, Disneyland officials said on their parks blog.
So starting in 2016, all four train stations along the Disneyland Railroad, the nightly Fantasmic show, the Mark Twain Riverboat, the Sailing Ship Columbia, the Davy Crockett Explorer Canoes and the Pirates Lair on Tom Sawyer Island will close temporarily.
