DHS Makeover - What we know so far.....

Next Big Thing

Yes, the plan is to eventually turn DHS to a star wars park as shown in the picture. They are starting with Endor and eventually make everything else around the park. :D

Im kidding of course. We barely know much about Phase 1, much less about a 'Phase 2 SWL' I believe.
Disney knows all about Phase 1. A Phase 2 is not out of the realm of possibility of being in development.

When Hogsmeade was in planning at Universal, the plan - in 2007 mind you - was to eventually connect the two parks and create Diagon Alley at USF. So internally motors could be running on a phase 2 is all I was getting at.

I've missed that detail then... that's a shame. I really thought they were expanding the park.
The park is expanding. It sounds like Star Wars land will extend out into the current parking lot, and the new area will be used for replacement parking. Also Toy Story Land is going into land that is currently backstage.

And a small thing, but positive, the fireworks bunker across the street should allow DHS to keep all of their attractions open during fireworks unlike now, where the entire backside of the park has to close (which includes TSMM).

Hopefully it will also help the smoke problem with DHS' fireworks. Currently many are shot off right at the roof of the theatre (or nearby roofs), leading to a lot of smoke build-up in their firework shows. With fireworks shot from farther away, it should theoretically solve that problem.

At WDW all one needs to know about Phase 2 of any project is that it exists only in an imagineer's coffee table book

Well speaking of the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular not to get off topic because I'm not...but anyway Screamscape which I'm sure you guys do not read,I dunno why I keep getting info from them...their's no other good accurate sources out their related to theme park news but you guys and Screamscape-I think unless it's all totally unaccurate. I thought the show has bookings until 2018, so does that mean the show is guaranteed safe for the next 2 years?
On your website it has the indy stunt show outlined under a attraction named New Attraction 1...with I'm assuming the other 2 attractions would be Star Wars related.

They might keep the current Indy show open while initial construction begins on other parts of the 14 acre site and develop that section of the parcel last. Also, this is not the latest version of the "maybe map" that I have seen; the more current version "saves" Echo Lake, H&V, and 50s and has SWL hugging the curve of the pathway past what is now Indy.
