Disney is pretty good at making you feel you are in a different place/time, in my opinion. The theming they've done in Africa, in Asia, in the different World Showcase pavillions... I think that is exactly Disney's forte.
I drool at the possibility of a KUKA arm style ride(a la Harry Potter). You could choose to be in an x-wing or a tie-fighter. The x-wing would be on a mission to blow up the Death Star and the tie fighter could be Darth Vader trying to stop them. "I have you now!"

According to a variety of sources Bob Iger and possibly George Lucas are at Hollywood Studios today for Star Wars Day. Word is there will be some sort of announcement at 9:45.

Fingers crossed.

After all the actual announced press events where they didn't announce much, it would seem strange to make a major announcement that no one really knows about...

This is true, but why would he be there at all though? For what it's worth the Inside the Magic twitter account says that 2 Guest Relations CMs confirmed that Iger is there for an announcement. I'm cautiously optimistic

That's assuming he really is there. And he could announce anything...like they'll be serving special drinks at SWW or something.

Some people are saying that it could be the subtitle of Episode VII.

But a park expansion? Not going to be at some impromptu thing, methinks.

Update: Fireworks over, no sighting of Iger, no announcements. Park closes in another couple of hours, but nothing special planned.

How many times does it take on these "major announcement" rumors?

Apparently one more

~Hi Friendly Frog! Yay, you totally get it about Avatar. But, I have mixed feeling about Carsland -- I love "the look", (omg) it's so gorg, especially at night! But two of the three attractions are just underwhelming. So, I'm thinking Star Wars land & Pixar land with a Cars element. I don't know if you read the whole thread, but Twin Dad posted some fabulous pics from beautiful planets that look much better than Tatooine. And, honestly DHS could really benefit from both.

~This!
Thanks for the tip I have not seen the photos, I'll have to check that out. In all honesty I like the shops & restaurant themeing of CL, but Radiator Springs Racers is really the only ride I would care to see come to WDW. I have to say Radiator Springs racers it's now my favorite attraction at any park anywhere. I also appreciate that it is a ride that pretty much any age can ride..kids to grandparents all enjoying the attraction.

Star Wars I suggest poking around here. Enjoy!
~Thank you for the link, Twin Dad. And, for the record, I stopped reading after "medical droid." I love the hype and excitement from the fans more than "Star Wars" -- but can still get excited about it. I hope it grows on me a little more with the new upcoming films.

~These "big announcement" rumors are becoming more & more prevalent and equally tiresome -- at least they're fun. I believe a classic LOL lecture is in order -- at least ten paragraphs, no less. Seriously.

~Hi Friendly Frog! Great post & I totally agree with you on this! I would love for WDW to have RSR Racers and that beautiful neon Radiator Springs part for the night.

Expect most of DHS to be themed to Star Wars in the next 5 years.

I don't really see that happening. Done well, I wouldn't mind it happening, but I don't think that it will.

Could be right I've seen concept art for the following.

1. Indy show: New Star Wars Eticket
2. Sounds Dangerous becomes Master Yodas Jedi Academy aka Turtle Talk with Yoda
3. Theater of the Stars converted to Star Wars show
4. Streets of America converted to Corrasant.
