Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opened at Disneyland park on May 31st, 2019. The new, immersive land opened with new shopping and dining experiences as well as a new attraction, Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. The land has already recently celebrated a major milestone, the 1 millionth rider on Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run!


Disney Cast Members were there and welcomed the Ridgeway family from Ocean Springs, Mississippi. The family included mom Becky, dad Roger, Jonathan (8) and Logan (4). They spent some time in the ship’s main hold and lounge and sat at the famous Dejarik table. They also got to meet Chewbacca! The family was also treated to Blue and Green Milk for a celebratory toast for this amazing milestone!

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
