It seems another layer has been added to the heavily rumored and talked about "Star Wars Land" at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. PopWrapped reports that the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular, which sits adjacent to Star Tours in Disney's Hollywood Studios, is scheduled to close at the end of the year. They explain that show was initially never intended to last more than a few years, and that now it is finally being closed to make way for "several major Star Wars additions... with construction set to begin in the spring of 2015." Also expected for closure is the nearby American Idol Experience, and that too, according to Popwrapped sources, is going to be replaced with Star Wars themed attractions, as well as the entire area surrounding Echo lake.
This news is bittersweet for both myself and others. The Indiana Jones Stunt show is an awesome, classic Disney attraction that has been operating since 1989. Losing it would be a great loss for the park. But at the same time, more Star Wars themed rides and attractions does sound very exciting. But as always this is just a rumor, take it with a grain of salt.
So sound off in the comments(or on Facebook & Twitter)! Is closing the Indy show justified by replacing it with something Star Wars? Or should they simply find somewhere else to put "Star Wars Land"?
