5 Reasons to Fall in Love with Galaxy’s Edge

Galaxy's edge
Walt Disney World Resort just celebrated the first anniversary of Galaxy’s Edge, an immersive Star Wars-themed land located inside of Disney’s Hollywood Studios. I was lucky enough to be there and experience opening day and knew immediately that Disney had hit a home run. As an avid Star Wars fan, the new land literally blasted me off to a galaxy far, far away and I felt as if I had been transported to another world. I’ve visited Galaxy’s Edge multiple times this past year and every time I discover something new. To celebrate the first anniversary of this galactic land, let’s go over 5 things to love about it!

1. The Immersive Theming- Disney cut no corners when creating this land, and it is very apparent when you visit. Everything is completely immersive, right down to the water bottles and Cast Members name tags! Prepare to marvel at the life-sized Millennium Falcon and Tie Fighter! You will absolutely feel like you are on another planet!

2. The Amazing Attractions- Star Wars fans rejoice! Galaxy’s Edge is home to two thrilling and unique attractions! Smugglers Run gives guests the chance to fly the Millennium Falcon and Rise of the Resistance is a brand new trackless thrill ride that you must experience to understand. I was absolutely blown away by Rise of the Resistance and it’s quickly become one of the most popular attractions throughout Walt Disney World Resort.

3. The Experiences- Galaxy’s Edge also offers some unique experiences! Build your own custom lightsaber at Savi’s Workshop or build your very own customized talking droid at The Droid Depot. These hands-on experiences offer a whole new way to bring the magic home.

4. Ogas Cantina- Looking for a unique, interactive place to grab a one-of-kind beverage? Look no further than Ogas Cantina!
