As a Disneyland passholder, the last few months has been exciting with more and more visible details of Star Wars Land! The best view hands down would have to be from the Disney and Friends parking structure. Everyday more and more construction updates keep on coming out. Walking around Big Thunder Mountain to the fence and you could see rock formations! With Critter Country open again, I was able to walk from the Haunted Mansion and see the elevated tracks of the Disneyland Railroad that will pass by the waterfall next summer! Before we get into the new stuff, let’s take a look at how far the project has come so far.

In January, Big Thunder Trail was closed along with the Rivers Of America and all the associated attractions. Within a few months, the backstage area was demolished. By summertime, it looked like this:

The Amazing site MiceChat created a graphic that shows what the area was like before, and what we expect the layout to look like when complete.

A new aerial photo from Near Map that looks to be from around late September shows how things have come along with the construction so far.
