Heartwarming Video Shows ‘Star Wars’ Fan’s Reaction to Seeing Galaxy’s Edge for the First Time

Visiting a Walt Disney World Resort for the first time can produce moving reactions. Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, and Animal Kingdom are full of amazing sights, sounds, and experiences.

But there’s no better feeling for Star Wars fans than laying eyes on Hollywood Studios’ Galaxy’s Edge for the first time.

One Guest captured her fiancé’s genuine reactions upon seeing the Disney magic of Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge in this video, and it’s nothing short of heartwarming.

Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge is one of the largest single-themed lands in Disney Park history and easily one of the most immersive. So we can understand this Guest’s excitement as he approaches the themed land in Hollywood Studios.

The original poster of the video, Megii (@megiipierson on TikTok), and her husband are from Canada, so one can imagine how long they must have waited to see an entire land dedicated to Star Wars in the iconic Disney Park.

Under her video on TikTok, Megii comments, “The pictures of him with the falcon are just pure joy.”

The official Disney Parks TikTok account (@disneyparks) reposted Megii’s video, giving her husband’s touching reactions to the Star Wars land a huge spotlight.

In the video, you can see Megii’s fiancé’s reactions to Kylo Ren’s ship, to the immersive language Cast Members use in the Disney Park (“Safe travels, and may the force be with you”), themed foods such as Blue Milk, and of course, to the stunning attractions found in Galaxy’s Edge.

The Guest’s reactions to all of the details and props decorating Galaxy’s Edge are so sweet, they transport us back to the first time we saw this dazzling testament to the talent of Walt Disney Imagineers for ourselves.

If you really want to feel like you’re visiting a planet on the Outer Rim of the galaxy, then be sure to visit Black Spire Outfitters to pick up some themed clothes.
