A new era…

The history and heritage of Disneyland will always be special to those who love what Walt Disney created. As a new era dawns over Disneyland, the park is being changed more than fans have ever seen in 60 years. The Star Wars Land expansion caused the demolition and removal of many historic buildings on property, bringing a promise of “the future.”

In these nearmap photos from November 2015 and September 2016, we can see the incredible changes, mostly to the backstage area.
