Wonderful World of Disney special airs this Sunday!


It’s almost here! The ABC special, The Wonderful World of Disney airs this Sunday! The new special will give us a look at the past 60 years of Disneyland, special musical performances, and an inside look at areas in the park that you normally can’t see. It’s also going to give us a look at the new Star Wars Land! In preparation for the new special, the park has released an all new video, showcasing some of the things we can expect to see this Sunday.


The new video showcases special performances by Pentatonix, Fall Out Boy and includes appearances by Derek Hough, Josh Gad and more!

While all that is very exciting, we’d be lying if we didn’t say the only reason we really want to watch is for Harrison Ford and the introduction of new Star Land features. What could we possibly expect? We’re hoping for a look at the new rides, including the rumored boat ride, Millennium Falcon ride, and the other major attraction that has been teased. We also hope for a look at the menu for a galaxy far, far away. Most importantly, we could very well get an estimated opening date for the new land. The strong rumor is that Disney wants the new land open in time for the last chapter of the new trilogy in 2019, so we could see an opening date of late 2018.

The one hour special airs this Sunday night on ABC.
