Construction is booming this summer at Walt Disney World Resort. Now that Pandora – the World of Avatar has opened, it’s full speed ahead for Star Wars Land, Toy Story Land, and other locations around the property.
Our contributor @bioreconstruct on Twitter recently took some helicopter shots of the construction updates around Disney property.
Starting at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Toy Story Land is rising up more and more every day. Great progress has been made on the land’s attractions, including the Alien Spinning Saucers.
The Slinky Dog family coaster is also coming along nicely, with the coaster now starting to resemble its final shape.
Even the Slinky Dog coaster show building is taking form, which can be seen off to the right of the coaster. Additional construction is also taking place at what could be the new entrance to the land.
While we are still quite a wait away before the opening of Toy Story Land, this area of Hollywood Studios is slowly starting to take shape.
Heading over to Star Wars Land in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, we can see that this land’s construction is also moving at a much faster pace.
These aerial photos show the progress made on a structure in just five days, with steel roofing added over a second level of the building.
Star Wars Land is slated for a 2019 opening date, while Toy Story Land will receive an official opening date at this year’s D23 Expo in Anaheim, Calif. Details on Star Wars Land will also be released at D23.
Taking a trip over to Disney Springs, we can see major progress on the new restaurant and bar, The Edison.
The Edison is slated for a fall 2017 opening date, though no specific date has been announced yet.
At Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, demolition is underway to make room for its new expansions in the resort’s marketplace area.
No specific date has been announced for the completion of this expansion at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort.
With all this construction, guests are going to see some exciting changes and additions coming to Walt Disney World Resort in the not-so-distant future. Until then, check out our videos on some of the construction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and The Edison at Disney Springs below:
