I don't think Cars Land is going to come to DHS. Possibly Radiator Springs Racers where LMA and Backlot Tour are, with a big queue area, and maybe sometime down the line they can add the town of Radiator Springs just south of the water tower, but I don't think the whole thing is coming. I would rather them do a Cars World Grand Prix, which would just be RSR with ride areas going through nighttime Tokyo, the Casino Bridge in Italy, and through the streets of London past Big Bentley, ending up in a Radiator Springs queue area. Would differentiate it from DCA a bit, but still the same concepts.

I do think Star Wars is going to be a big project in DHS though. I think it does expand the park eastwards a little bit. I'm not sure how soon it would be though, probably 2018 or 2019.

This could be a general timeline -

2013 - New Fantasyland (MK)
2016 - Pandora (AK)
2019 - Star Wars Galaxy (DHS)

In the meantime, Epcot gets some upgrades to Future World, as they have finished a bunch of upgraded/added dining options in World Showcase. I don't think they are going to pay for a new country pavilion in the World Showcase, as they had the individual countries pay/sponsor the current ones. Would probably cause some issues there, maybe even breach of contract/paybacks.

Tatooine - are currently comprising Indy Jones, Backlot Express, Star Tours, and Tatooine Traders
- Where Indy Jones is, construct Jabba's Palace as a interactive queue area for a Pod Racers attraction, which would be a Dumbo-style spinning ride with different pod racers (Pod Race from Ep1)
- Retheme Backlot Express to Mos Eisley Cantina
- Leave Star Tours and Tatooine Traders as is.

Coruscant - area including Sounds Dangerous, Sci-Fi Dine-in, and Streets of America
- New facade on Sounds Dangerous to make it the Jedi Temple, hosting a Turtle Talk style Master Yoda's Jedi Training Academy
- New facade on Sci-Fi Dine-in to make it the Senate Dome, hosting a TS restaurant on one floor, and an upper floor as a queue for an updated TTA type ride
- Streets of America re-themed to Coruscant buildings
- The TTA type ride would start at the senate dome then take you through the tops of the Coruscant buildings

Naboo - area including Pizza Planet, Mama Melrose's, and Muppet Vision 3D
- Buldings demolished to construct Naboo Falls, a Matterhorn Bobsled style ride through the Naboo palace and over the falls

The next part would require the park to the east, and would require the service road to be re-routed a bit, around the water that runs to the east of the property.

Death Star - would be behind where Mama Melrose's restaraunt is.
- Star Wars villians meet and greet's, including Darth Vader, Darth Maul, Palpatine, Boba Fett, Jabba the Hutt
- Dark Side of The Force dark ride, takes you through the saga highlighting many of the lightsaber battles
- entrance queue to TIE Fighter vs X-Wing attraction

- TIE Fighter vs X-Wing attraction show building would be just south of the parking lot
- attraction would be two tracks, one would have Tie Fighters, the other X-Wing, both equipped with the Buzz Lightyear shooting technology. Ride cars would be suspended like the Peter Pan ride cars. Tracks would cross each other (obviously at different heights), and there would be targets on the back of ride cars, along with targets along the walls and props alongside. You get points for hitting targets, just like with Buzz.

Endor - To the southeast of where the Death Star would be
- Hero area meet and greet's including Luke, Han, Leia, Chewbacca, R2D2, C3-PO, etc.
- Play area for kids

Another area directly to the east of the Death Star, between Endor and the show building for TIE Fighter vs X-Wing, that would host a TS restaurant. Possibly Hoth?

So it would add 2 E-Tickets in Naboo Falls & TIE vs X, a TTA type cruising ride through Coruscant, a Dumbo style ride in Tatooine, a play area, a couple of meet & greet area's, a enhanced Jedi Training Academy, and a couple of TS restaurants. Would include most major areas of the saga, including Tatooine, Coruscant, Naboo, Endor, and the Death Star.

A lot of these have been brought up by other posters, just wanted to put some ideas together...
No Jar Jar Binks meet and greet????

Just a general question not only for you, but for everyone, where do you get your information from? I would love to look some of this stuff up!!

A lot of it is from other thread information I gather and from looking at part things disney has done and how they approach these types of things most of these year/time frames are estimations and some turn out to be pretty accurate. So I use and I would others use background knowledge and information of other disney websites and other disboards threads.

Don't forget disney springs in 2016 as well but agree with all of what you said.

This was posted in another thread about possible Planes attractions - http://www.disneybymark.com/2013/04/...r-ride-system/

Potential new ride system, I think it would work pretty well for the TIE Fighter vs X-Wing ride that I proposed. Make it a 3D ride with TSMM style shooting sequences, with targets on the TIE Fighter or X-Wing in front of you, and along the movie going "past" you on the sides/top of the ride tube, and you have a pretty good attraction I think.

Where would they build this? It looks to me like there are roads everywhere but the front. I would definitely love to have a Star Wars area that was bigger.

If you look at DHS on google maps, there is room to the east of the park, south of the parking lot. They can build a new road around the expansion.

I figure it would also take over Indy Jones Stunt Show, Streets of America, the Muppets area, Pizza Planet/Mama Melrose's, and Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater.
