With all the construction set to begin soon & the addition of Star Wars Land on the horizon Disney has decided to axe one of Hollywood Studio’s most popular events. Star Wars weekends has been discontinued with 2015 being it’s last year.

Hopefully they will do Star Wars themed events during the year since having the entire park devoted to Star Wars was pretty cool. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what impact Star Wars Land has on the park.
During Disney’s D23 Parks & Resort panel they announced that Star Tours would be getting an expansion! Details are still scarce at the moment, but the attraction will feature locations, character & events from the new Star Wars film, The Force Awakens. Star Tours is already an attraction that I feel you have to ride multiple times to get the full experience since it features 50 different experiences! With this expansion that means you’ll be riding it even more times during your visit to Hollywood Studios. The new Star Tours experience is expected to be open later this year.
