Rumor: Using the Force at Disneyland’s Star Wars Land.

I recently spoke to someone in the know regarding the creation of Star Wars Land at Disneyland (aka The Star Wars Experience). While it sounds like the park won’t be open until 2019–the year we get the final film in the current Star Wars trilogy–we did learn the Force will be with the park. Seriously. You will apparently be able to use the Force.

There are going to be some kind of “Force Opportunities” placed throughout Star Wars Land. Imagine a boulder. Kids will walk up to the boulder and attempt to lift it all day. But at one special moment, one special child will actively use the Force and lift the rock. We don’t know if it will be a ship or just a rock or what. It sounded like there would be smaller “Force Opportunities” that occur often and others that only happen once or twice a day.

It reminds me of King Arthur’s Sword in Fantasy Land at Disneyland. Kids can pull on it all day but only one kid gets to be King Arthur and pull the sword out.

For fun here’s some dirt to look at. This is what Star Wars Land looks like right now:
