New Details Revealed for Star Wars Lands, Reign of Kong

by Mommy Frog on February 26, 2016 Orlando

Hi there! Welcome to our weekly roundup of the most interesting theme park news around the Walt Disney World Resort, the Universal Orlando Resort, SeaWorld Orlando and other theme parks. 

Here are this week’s theme park highlights:

  • Star Wars Land - The Millennium FalconDid you watch the "Disneyland 60" special on ABC this past Sunday? Of course, we did because Lily just had to see Sofia Carson, her favorite Descendant, and Idina Menzel, who gave a spectacular performance of "Let It Go" from Disney California Adventure. For you Star Wars fans, Harrison Ford introduced more artist concepts for the coming Star Wars Lands to Disneyland and Disney World, including The Millennium Falcon, which guests will get to pilot as it speeds through space. Guests will also join the battle between stormtroopers and resistance fighters in the First Order. And viewers got a closer look at the new Shanghai Disneyland and its headliner TRON Lightcycle Power Run. The new resort will open June 16.
  • Skull Island: Reign of KongUniversal Orlando made news of it own, releasing more details about Skull Island: Reign of Kong, which opens this summer at Universal's Islands of Adventure. Guests will begin this new 3D experience by setting out on an island populated by prehistoric creatures—and perhaps something else—toward the 8th Wonder Expedition Company's campsite. You'll board an expedition vehicle that will take you deep into the island and a temple filled with caves—and more creatures!
  • Luigi's Rollickin' RoadstersLuigi's Rollickin' Roadsters at Disney California Adventure finally has an open date. The new trackless ride system that replaces Luigi's Flying Tires officially opens March 7.
  • While the Wizarding World of Harry Potter officially opens April 7 at Universal Studios Hollywood, we frogs were so hoppy to get a sneak peek. Here's what you can expect!
  • Make-A-Wish Mouse EarsYou might have heard, but Disney is giving you the chance to take part in its Make-A-Wish "Share Your Ears" campaign. Between now and March 14, Disney will donate $5 to the charity for every "ear photo" you share on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter—up to $1 million—using hashtag #ShareYourEars. Disneyland has also created a limited-edition ear hat, and 100% of its $19.95 sales price goes to the charity as well.
  • Last but not least, our annual price rise right around the corner. Now is the time to buy your Orlando theme park tickets for the biggest savings of the year!

That’s it for the theme park news this week. Have a great weekend!

Hoppy planning!
