The Star Wars and Marvel attractions at Disneyland have begun to emerge from the minds of the theme park’s imagineers, according to the Disney rumor dissection squad MiceChat. Here’s a mock-up as to where the Star Wars Land attraction will go:

What can we expect to see in the new space? MiceChat writes,

The plan for Star Wars Land has grown immensely in scale, and it’s now aimed squarely at the land north of Disneyland itself … The majority of Star Wars Land in the northernmost park acreage will be inside a massive series of show buildings, meaning the land won’t have to close for fireworks fallout. The rides and shows in the land itself are being developed in a top secret Imagineering lab in Glendale with Imagineers signing extra confidentiality agreements because the plotlines and characters are pulled from the next three episodes in the Star Wars saga and the Lucasfilm folks understandably guard that information with their lives. But what we can tell you is that Star Wars Land will include multiple attractions, anchored by a mega E Ticket using a trackless vehicle that will break the mold when it comes to how theme park visitors interact with a ride environment.

Plans for a Marvel-themed land have continued as well; that park will pop up behind the Tower of Terror, according to MiceChat’s map.

Here’s some info about a Marvel land ride in the works:

[T]he E Ticket thrill ride that is planned to anchor that expansion is going to be very unique. The ride will feature a newly Imagineered hybrid ride system that might be best described as a combination of Rock N’ Roller Coaster and Universal’s Transformers ride using every trick and gimmick WDI can throw at it, including on-board audio and effects and elaborate sets and animatronics.

The only problem? All of these new attraction plans have had an effect on the Disneyland parking lot lay-outs. The Imagineers will have to find some creative ways to accommodate the huge influx of nerd attendees that will soon be flying in.
