The wait is finally over!
The first new Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge land is opening to the public at Disneyland in California. Guests will get a chance to walk through the new world of Batuu and interact with cast members, new characters, shop in a marketplace, and drink some blue milk.
One of the major highlights for any Star Wars fan? Standing in front of a lifesize version of the Millennium Falcon. Guests will get to board the ship and FLY it themselves. Millennium Falcon Smugglers Run is one of two new major attractions opening in Galaxy’s Edge.
Unfortunately, I am not in California this morning to check it all out myself. But there is plenty of media there posting photos and videos of everything you’ll find at Galaxy’s Edge. The people at Theme Park Insider posted a video of the full Millennium Falcon Smugglers Run experience. If you want to avoid spoilers of what you’ll see on the ride or the line leading up to it, I would avoid this video. But if you’re like me and can’t get enough of everything Galaxy’s Edge, here you go!
Our sister station KTLA is LIVE at Disneyland all morning for the Galaxy’s Edge opening. I will post any of their video updates here as they come in. I am hoping to get down to Disney World when Galaxy’s Edge opens there later this summer.
