Star Wars Land: Galaxy’s Edge
First things first, this new Star Wars Land is called Galaxy’s Edge! Star Wars Land: Galaxy’s Edge will open in Disneyland May 31st, 2019 and in Walt Disney World August 29th, 2019!
I recently had the privilege to hear Bob Chapek (The Chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts) speak about Star Wars in Disney Parks. He revealed all the new Star Wars themed attractions & resorts. Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Do you want to live, eat, and breathe everything Star Wars? Then you need to book a trip to Disney in 2019!
*NEW* Star Wars Hotel & Resort
This brand new star wars inspired luxury hotel will be like no other themed hotel in the world. It will be built on the Disney World Resort property (in central Florida). This hotel will be so much more than a place to lay your head at night, it will be a completely immersive experience. You will be IN and PART OF the Star Wars Saga.
Families that visit will be able to get on board a real starship and take a trip around the galaxy. Every window will have a view of space. Guests will become active citizens of the galaxy where cosplay will be encouraged. Your stay here will also be connected with your role in the new Star Wars Land: Galaxy’s Edge”. This is an artist rendering photo that Disney just released of the guest rooms. Do you see those super cool bunk beds?
Are you geeking out yet? Keep reading, I have so much more!
*NEW* STAR WARS LAND: GALAXY’S EDGE
Star Wars in Disney is expanding into a whole new land called Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. It’s going to be huge, around 14 acres. That’s bigger than the other new land Disney is building, the highly anticipated Toy Story Land. Star Wars Land will be special because there will actually be 2 Star Wars lands, one in Disney World and one in Disneyland. Disneyland Galaxy’s Edge will open Mat 31st, 2019 and Disney World Galaxy’s Edge will open August 29th, 2019
The setting for Star Wars Land: Galaxy’s Edge is set on the Planet Batuu, which is a remote trading outpost. It is a safe haven for those who are fleeing the First Order. There will be two new epic ride attractions.
Millennium Falcon Secret Mission
Do you want to fly the Millennium Falcon? This ride will put you in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon during a critical mission. Aim those blasters and prepare for hyperspace!
New Era Battle
Guests will ride a life size X-wing Star Fighter. This attraction will put you inside a hangar bay that imagineers promise will be TO SCALE. There will be a battle between the First Order and the Resistance and you will be right in the middle of it.
Expect to see all your Star Wars character favorites in Star Wars Land: Galaxy’s Edge including aliens, humanoids and droids. All the cast members will no longer be cast members, they will be aliens! This is a brand new thing for Disney. The “cast members” working each restaurant and store will be costumed like local inhabitants of planet Battuu. One of the Restaurants, The Mos Eisley Cantina, will be serving Blue Milk – just like beloved Luke Skywalker drank in A New Hope.
Shopping will be a whole new experience. Disney had taken the inspiration from the exotic outdoor markets of Marrakech to create the Galaxy’s Edge Marketplace. And yes, one of the stalls are operated by merchant Toydarian! Remember him from The Phantom Menace? There will be new merchandise and toys that you cannot buy anywhere else.
It has been revealed that guests will be assigned a character or “role” in the galaxy. Your actions will determine your story. I’m not sure what exactly this means as a guest, but Bob Chapek assured me it will be unlike any theme park experience you’ve ever had.
When will Star Wars Land: Galaxy’s Edge open in Disney World?
May 31st in Disneyland and August 29th in Disney World!
The first order and resistance has gone International (but aren’t they already Inter-galactic? Anyway!) Feb 27, 2018 there were life sized Star Wars vehicles revealed inside the Disneyland Paris Park! Yes, you can now take a selfie in front of model X-wing starfighter or Imperial tie fighter soaring above you!
There will also be shows and characters from the legendary Star Wars saga. It promises to be a thrilling place for Star Wars fans. All I have to say is, Merci Disney!
I am able to share all this new Star Wars Land: Galaxy’s Edge info thanks to the incredible conference “Disney Social Media Moms Celebration”. I was invited this February 2018 and I got all the secret juicy details that they haven’t released to the press. To read all about my experience at the Disneysmmc, CLICK HERE.
