Disney fans are collectively losing their minds (and breaking open their piggy banks) today over news that the long-rumored high-end 21 Royal restaurant at Disneyland is now very, very real.

Disney Parks fan site WDW News Today is reporting that the ultra luxe 21 Royal is accepting reservations as of yesterday, with the premier experience costing a whopping $15,000. Don’t worry, that does include park admission, valet, tax, and tip.

So what do you get for your $15,000? A private dinner for twelve guests only, tucked into an amazingly opulent room at 21 Royal Street, which apparently was part Walt Disney’s apartment plans above New Orleans Square. The guided seven-course menu is created individually for each group by chef de cuisine Justin Monson, and includes wines from sommelier Matt Ellingson, as well as an opening cocktail reception.

While there, you’ll also get a winding history lesson on some of the finer points of not only the park, but of Disney the man. And when all is said and done, you’ll be able to retreat to a private balcony overlooking the park for coffee and petit fours.

The private dining experience is only available for those willing to pony up a cool $1,250 a head (again, that’s all-in though), but given the volume that a place like Disneyland does, there are sure to be more than a few willing participants. Want to throw down the cash yourself? 21 Royal is taking reservations now.

Love this idea...make money wherever they can. I'm surprised they didn't put the "dream suite" up for sale too.

Maybe Airbnb can sponsor the Dream Suite and make it available to the public. The security deposit would be INSANE!

Star Wars-Themed Lands at Disney Parks Set to Open in 2019
George Savvas
by George Savvas, Public Relations Director, Disneyland Resort

Our new Star Wars-themed lands at Disneyland park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be opening in 2019! Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger just made the announcement many of you have been so anxious to hear during today’s Walt Disney Company Q1 FY17 Earnings call.

Star Wars-Themed Lands at Disney Parks Set to Open in 2019

As we’ve shared, the Star Wars-themed lands are the largest-ever, single-themed land expansions at Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts. At each location, guests will be transported to a never-before-seen planet – a remote trading port and one of the last stops before wild space – where Star Wars characters and their stories come to life. Check out some of our earlier images, including a glimpse at one of the signature attractions which lets you take the controls of the Millennium Falcon!

There will be more exciting updates to share in the future as work progresses on each of these galactic lands. Keep checking the Disney Parks Blog for the latest.

Woot! I am excited for this!!!!

I am surprised that the Florida version will open within the same calendar year. Anaheim is considerably ahead in construction. And, I would think the weather in Florida might slow stuff down. But, I appreciate their ambitious schedule!!

^ Perfect! I'm hoping to get back to Knott's and Disney in September 2019.
And hopefully with another West Coast Bash happening, too. But still. The timing will
be pretty good, after Star Wars Land has had it's "shake down" for it's first summer.

Awesome! :mickey:

So minimum 2 years left... Possibly close to three. Ay Dios mio! I can't wait that long! Although this was not entirely unexpected, but I was still hoping for mid to late 2018.

^ You're young. You'll be fine. ;) Patience.

I'm trying to juggle all the new stuff coming up in Disney Japan, Hong Kong,
and maybe (eventually) Shanghai. The years 2020-2023 appear to be
good for traveling all over there.

I know. But I am closely following the construction progress every day from my apartment in Copenhagen and as soon as there's even a hint of a soft opening I'm booking a flight to L.A!

^ I totally understand. I wish I could go sooner, myself.

And I definitely need to get back to Trader Sam's too. :wink:

Star Wars Episode IX is tentatively scheduled for release on May 23, 2019. I'm sure that and the announcement of Star Wars Lands opening in 2019 are totally unrelated.
