    Now that Disney owns Star Wars will we ever get a ST Weekend at Disneyland?

    Forget Star Wars weekends, put Star Wars land in DCA
    There is no right or wrong in this debate. It is simply a matter of perspective.

    How about changing TL into SWL. They already have Star Tours, just put in a Star wars overlay in space mountian, change captain EO into a Star Wars theme 4D movie, instead of making Innoventions into Iron Man, use it as a new Star wars ride. They can have Yoda, Darth Vader, Storm Troopers, R2-D2, C3PO and even Jar Jar walking around. They can even change Autopia into sand speeders or race pods.

    I don't think it was ownership of the brand that was preventing them from having SW Weekends in Anaheim.

    How exactly does that fit into the theme of California?

    I agree. There's no reason they couldn't have struck a deal to hold it in Anaheim.

    The removal of any need to pay licensing fees makes it more likely, but I'm sure it was always a possibility.

    The only thing I could see at CA Adventure is maybe using this as the theme to the next street party after that stupid Alice theme is gone.

    I hope so. I doubt it, but maybe it will be part of "Limited Time Magic".

    I agree, if they wanted to, it already would of happened. It happens in WDW to drive attendance in a slow season where people take weeklong vacations. It's not as needed in Anaheim where weekends are plenty busy and few would make a week long visit for it.

    The franchise and new material coming since they are planning 3 more movies, plus Indy, could fill up their own lands. However using a space movie and explorer movie as the basis for two lands it might feel like a copy of Tomorrowland and Adventureland.

    Heaven forbid that actually happens to Space Mountain. The ride is perfect as it is.

    Now that sounds like a really cool idea. A Star Wars street party would be awesome.
