Calling all Star Wars fans! By now you must have heard about one of the latest and most impressive additions to the Disney theme parks?
We are talking about Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, and it really is a dream come true for anyone (and we mean ANYONE!) who has ever wanted to immerse themselves in the Star Wars universe!
If you have ever wanted to feel like you are IN a Star Wars movie - this is an absolute must for you. Just like visiting Hollywood Studios makes you feel like you are strolling through California in the 1950s, and just like taking a trip to Animal Kingdom can transport you to the peaks of Asia and the markets of Africa, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is phenominal.
Located in both Disneyland in California and Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, Galaxy's Edge is a fully-realized world that transports visitors to the remote planet of Batuu. Here, you can explore the bustling marketplace of Black Spire Outpost, take a ride on the iconic Millennium Falcon, and even build your own lightsaber or droid. There are so many great rides, attractions and various ways to be entertained, you'll definitely need to be visiting again!
But what makes Galaxy's Edge so great for Star Wars fans? Here are just a few reasons:
It's an immersive experience like no other.
From the moment you step into Galaxy's Edge, you're transported to a different world. The attention to detail is incredible, from the weathered walls of the buildings to the exotic creatures roaming the streets. You'll feel like you're truly on a distant planet far, far away.
You can interact with characters from the Star Wars universe thanks to their groundbreaking interactive technology.
One of the coolest things about Galaxy's Edge is the chance to meet characters from the Star Wars movies and shows. From Chewbacca to Kylo Ren, you never know who you might run into. And if you're looking for a truly immersive experience, try the "Rise of the Resistance".
Set in the world of Star Wars, this ride takes you on a journey to join the Resistance in their fight against the First Order. From the moment you step into the queue, you are fully immersed in the story. You can see droids and Resistance fighters working alongside you as you make your way through the Resistance base.
Once you board the ride, you are in for a wild ride! You'll be dodging blaster fire, running from Kylo Ren, and even flying in a simulated X-wing battle. The technology used in this ride is truly impressive, making you feel like you're actually in the Star Wars universe.
But the best part? This ride is family-friendly! Even young Padawans can enjoy the adventure, without any scary moments or intense drops.
So pack your bags, grab your lightsaber, and make your way to Disney World for the ultimate experience - the Rise of the Resistance. May the Force be with you!ride, which puts you right in the middle of a battle between the Resistance?
Be a pilot, or an engineer, or a navigator with Smuggler's Run!
Look no further than Smuggler's Run at Disneyland's Galaxy's Edge! This immersive ride puts you and your team in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon, where you work together to complete a smuggling mission.
Before boarding, each member of your group is assigned a role, such as pilot, gunner, or engineer. Once you're in the Falcon, it's up to you to work together to fly the ship, shoot down enemies, and successfully complete the mission.
The attention to detail on this ride is incredible - you'll feel like you're really piloting the iconic ship from the Star Wars franchise. And the best part? Every ride is different, depending on how well your team works together and how successful you are at completing the mission.
So gather your family, prepare for takeoff, and get ready for an unforgettable adventure on Smuggler's Run. May the Force be with you!
The attention to detail is mindblowing.
Whether you're in the Cantina and you can see the gently breathing creature and it's "eggs" that end up in your drinks, or you're in the market and see the adorable "living" creatures in the cages, and even the dishevelled look and feel of everything down to the toilet blocks and the rubbish bins, Disney have really outdone themselves on creating a completely immersive and HUGE land, making you feel you really are on the outer rim, exploring planets far away in our galaxy!
Disney is great for created themed areas which can completely immerse you, and this is one of them, and it's a place that pay homage to the Star Wars franchise in the most amazing way.
So kids, are you ready to visit a galaxy far, far away and spend your family day out at a remote outpost, interacting with the first order as you enjoy delicious food, marvel at the entertainment and in our opinion, one of the best areas to visit in all of the Disney parks?
