“Project D” notice of commencement filed for Star Wars Land; ends September 2019

Walt Disney Imagineering has filed a notice of commencement for something titled “Project D” for Hollywood Studios and Disneyland. “Project Delos” is said to be the internal codename for Star Wars Land in Disneyland.

The big thing here is the end date, September 26, 2019. It seems like Disney is shooting for a late 2019 date to have the work done. While that doesn’t necessarily point to an opening date, it’s a good barometer for what their internal calendar looks like.

This notice of commencement doesn’t point to construction work, as we’d expect from a regular notice of commencement, but rather a “poly-party ipd”. From my very non-technical standpoint, this appears to be a document that outlines the different project owners for the various disciplines that are being contracted out for the project. Contractors listed range from General Contractors to Themed Plaster to Fire Protection.

Other blogs have just recently picked up on this date, but here’s our story from over a year ago. […]
