We are so excited to learn that during D23’s Destination D Mickey Mouse Fan Celebration there was a major announcement made related to the attractions coming to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.  The new land is set to open at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and Disneyland Resort in California.  The land will be an immersive Star Wars themed land with new attractions, dining and shopping experiences for guests to enjoy.  Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products Chairman Bob Chapek has now revealed the names of the two signature attractions set to open in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge when it finally opens.  The land will open at Disneyland Resort next summer and at Walt Disney World Resort in fall 2019.


The new attractions are officially known as Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.  Guests will be able to take the controls and be part of one of three different roles on the Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run attraction.  During Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance guests will be a part of the battle between the First Order and the Resistance, which will also include a face off with Kylo Ren.

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!
