Are you excited for Disney’s Star Wars: Galaxy Edge coming to both Disneyland & Walt Disney World This Summer?
I was soo excited when I heard that Disney was building a new Star Wars themed attraction at both their US Theme Parks (Disneyland and Disney World.) As more and more announcements of what the attractions would include have come out I have only gotten more excited. Added to all the Pixar fun that came out last year and I can’t wait to take my kids to go and see.

This attraction is said to be the most ambitious that Disney has attempted. In this attraction, guests will enjoy the totally immersive experience of finding themselves in the middle of the galactic war between the Resistance and the First Order. Their journey will take them inside an actual full-size starship as well as onboard a nearby Star Destroyer.
