'Star Wars' Forces Out Older Disneyland Attractions


Disneyland is getting a "Star Wars" face-lift. The Los Angeles Times says the change will be the Anaheim park's largest expansion ever.

Obviously, the changes cost money and require space. That's why Disneyland plans to close 10 eateries and attractions — some more permanently than others — starting Jan. 10.

The park also upped the cost on season passes recently — as much as 31 percent. But that hasn't kept attendance down; one theme park consultant told the Los Angeles Times, "The tourists will come, hell or high water."

It's also probably no coincidence that rival theme park Universal Studios Hollywood has plans to debut its Harry Potter attraction in April.

Because what better competition is there than "Star Wars" when it comes to fighting magic with space magic.
