Hey, Star Wars is great and all but I still can't believe they decided to put the Star Wars-themed land into Disneyland rather than DCA. To me, it's a no brainer. DCA needs to attract more Guests, Disneyland needs a break from the crowds. Even if they have some master plan for DCA down the line (adding more Marvel) that doesn't take into consideration the YEARS of suffering Disneyland will face with overcrowding. Even if the new land turns out beautifully which I'm sure it will, it still doesn't "go" with the overall concept of the park. And I really, really hope they're not just going to call it "Star Wars Land"!!

I'm a little surprised but I think a very Disney name for Starwars land would simply be "A long time ago..."

The signs would be neat!
A long time ago... ->

I am excited to see Star Wars take a more prominent position in Hollywood Studios. The streets of America are boring and confusing and I don't think anyone cares to see them go.
I am not thrilled to hear that Disneyland is getting a new land. Honestly, I wouldn't even like to see Discovery Bay happen. I like classic Disneyland and don't want to see another land shoehorned in.
In my opinion they should pull out Autotopia which takes up an enormous amount of space, and replace it with whatever E-ticket attraction comes out of Star Wars land in FL.

Should have found room to put it in CA Adventure, since that parks needs something more to counterbalance disneyland. It's basically an overflow park, and the imbalance is just going to get bigger.

And no, I don't want them to make the park like DisneyWorld. The park's charm is that it is small and intimate. Yes it's crazy crowded during the fireworks or parades or fantasmic, but that is fun in it's own way, and the park has much more magic late at night when the crowds thin out.

Star Wars land is great for Hollywood Studios, but I hate it being added to Disneyland. It doesn't fit that park. So sad. Disneyland is my favorite.

I like my Jedi Mickey. So, I disagree with you on that topic.

We aren't going to see Star Wars land open anywhere until the next decade. There will be minimum 4 more movies out before then, and that's plenty of time for the film makers and animators to start putting examples of Star Wars food on the big screen and the Disney XD cartoon. We saw a glimpse with the instant green bread Rey ate in The Force Awakens, and I think we will see more food placement in the years to come.

I agree that the star wars land is a good idea, but I also agree that it doesn't fit within Disneyland Park and should be built at a third gate. I'm really looking forward to seeing it in Florida but believe it would totally change Disneyland and not in such a great way!

Star Wars land in Disney Hollywood Studios makes sense because they are essentially redesigning the park into a Islands of Adventure format without the water. Toy Story Land, old hollywood, star wars land, and with the new muppet restaurant muppet land. Not to mention whatever additional themed area that is eventually going to be build in lights, motor action section of the park. Star wars land does seem to stand out in Disneyland, but I think Walt would not be against it. He wanted disney to constantly be changing declaring that it will never be finished. Theme parks are evolving people want to enter the places of there fantasies in the biggest way possible and star wars land will be able to do that more so than discovery bay. Discovery bay represents old theme park ideas-- there is nothing wrong with that, but there is nothing wrong with transforming with the times either.
