Disney announced many new coming attractions and entertainment during the D23 EXPO 2015 in Anaheim this past weekend. Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek delivered a behind-the-scenes look at what is coming to Disneyland. He was joined on stage by Imagineers working on the projects to give insight into the future of the lands. Of the many announcements, Chapek told everyone that the new and enhanced Star Wars experiences coming later this year to the Florida and California theme parks, plans for a new Toy Story Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios, and more details on Pandora-The World of AVATAR, which is already under construction at Disney's Animal Kingdom. Chapek also said that Soarin' Around the World will finally make its U.S. film debut at Epcot and Disney California Adventure taking guests to new places around the world. The Walt Disney Company's Bob Iger has plans to bring Star Wars-themed lands to Disney's Hollywood Studios in Orlando and Disneyland Park in Anaheim. Each land will be 14-acres and will transport guests to a never-before-seen planet from the new Star Wars film with two signature attractions, including a customized secret mission on the Millennium Falcon and an epic Star Wars adventure that puts guests in the middle of a giant battle. From a new Star Tours adventure to Star Wars Launch Bay, from a new Jedi Training Academy to "Season of the Force," soon guests will be part of both new and enhanced experiences at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort.

Star Tours - The Adventures Continue - Later this year, Star Tours will include a new adventure featuring locations and characters from the upcoming film, "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," giving guests a new adventure in the Star Wars galaxy.

Star Wars Launch Bay - Located in the Innoventions building will be an interactive experience that will take guests into the upcoming film, "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," with special exhibits and peeks behind-the-scenes, including opportunities to visit with new and favorite Star Wars characters, special merchandise and food offerings. Star Wars Launch Bay will be located in the Animation Courtyard at Disney's Hollywood Studios and in Tomorrowland at Disneyland Park. Also at Disneyland Park, Star Wars Launch Bay will share the space with the reimagined Super Hero HQ, featuring opportunities to meet and take photos with super heroes like Captain America and Thor, as well as experience the returning Iron Man Tech Presented by Stark Industries. Both experiences will be available for guests later this year in Innoventions.

Jedi Training Academy - A favorite of younger fans is reimagined with a new experience that includes new characters and a new villain to battle from the popular Disney XD series "Star Wars Rebels."

Season of the Force - This new seasonal event, beginning early 2016, brings new experiences to both coasts. In Tomorrowland at Disneyland Park, guests will explore the Star Wars galaxy with special entertainment throughout the land, themed food locations and more. Guests also will be thrilled to climb aboard Hyperspace Mountain, a reimagining of the classic Space Mountain attraction, in which guests will join an X-wing Starfighter battle. At Disney's Hollywood Studios, guests will close out weekend nights with a new fireworks spectacular set to the iconic score of the Star Wars movies.
