Both nights for the 2015 Night of Joy event at the Magic Kingdom have sold out.

Star Wars Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios will break ground in 2016 according to Walt Disney Co. Chief Operating Officer Tom Staggs.

Speaking at the Bank of America-Merrill Lynch 2015 Media Communications and Entertainment Conference in Beverly Hills yesterday, Staggs indicated that both the Disneyland and Walt Disney World versions of Star Wars Land will begin construction in 2016, but did not offer any other details or an expected opening date.

Disney announced that 2015 will be the final year for the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights.

Disney's Hollywood Studios is about to enter a period of significant change and major construction, and it is expected that the Streets of America, the home of the lights, will be removed as part of the redevelopment of the park.

From the Official Disney Parks Blog.

"As you plan ahead, we also wanted you to know that this holiday season will mark the finale for The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights. The display of lights has enjoyed a successful run at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, going all the way back to when it first appeared on Residential Street.


In order to prepare for some incredible experiences coming to the park, including the recently announced Toy Story Land and a Star Wars-themed land, we will not be able to present The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights in the future. Our heartfelt thanks go out to the family of Jennings Osborne for letting us share their family tradition year after year. And thank you to all of you for being part of the spectacle with us. Here’s to making more memories in this, the 20th and final year."
