    Yes, these are the Droid's you are looking for...

    In a few years you will actually be able to take a trip across the US and truly find the Star Wars Droids which inspired us to create the DroidForums Android site logo/moto. Disney Studios announced over the weekend that they will be building Star Wars Land at both Disneyland in Anaheim, California and Disney World in Orlando, Florida.

    This "ground-breaking" news (pun intended) was revealed during the D23 Expo. CEO Bob Iger indicated that the new Star Wars Land will be the biggest theme park endeavor in the history of Disney, as they plan to model as many of the famous Star Wars "landmarks" as possible. Here's a quote from the Disney landing page for the announcement:
    We can't imagine how long it will take them to build something so ambitious, but let's cross our fingers it doesn't take too long!

    I've always wanted to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. I better do that in the next few years, because there's no way I'll ever go to Harry Potter World once Star Wars Land is opened!

    Never been to either park. Here's one more thing I'd like to see that I may never get to. Thanks Disney! Haha!

    Someday...someday...

    Very cool! Been to both. What I want to know is, where are they going to find 14 acres in Anaheim....that will be a tough one. Orlando on the other hand has plenty of room.
    Looking forward to it!

    Very cool, I bet it will be awesome. We took the kids to Disney World in '04 and it was a blast. We have talked about going back someday and this may be just the excuse we need to save up & plan another trip.

    Very cool, my wife will certainly want to go back and see that, but then again she goes every year... it doesn't hurt to be an hour and a half away.
