Each of the parks will represent a brand new Star Wars planet, complete with a marketplace, dining establishments, and cantina. Visitors will reportedly be able to meet droids,  aliens, and characters from the movies as they wander through this new world, tasting local delicacies in an “otherworldly street market.”

The new parks will also include at least two new rides. In the first, visitors will be able to take the helm of the Millennium Falcon and fight off agents of the sinister First Order. In another, visitors will find themselves caught in a gun battle between Resistance fighters and First Order Stormtroopers. Other potential rides have not been announced yet.

Construction has already begun on the 14-acre expansions to the parks, but it’s not clear exactly when fans will be able to step into the world of Star Wars. It may be several years before the parks are open for visitors — Disney doesn’t seem to have a set timeline yet — and when they are, we’ll let you know.
