The United States Department of Defense is not the group you would necessarily expect to see taking a tour around Walt Disney World. Interestingly enough, they did! Recently, a group of Department of Defense engineers took a tour of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. We can’t think of a better place to learn more about the fascinating technology that makes that portion of Disney’s Hollywood Studios so exceptional.
As shared by Walt Disney World Cast & Community Facebook: “Bright suns! We have an incoming transmission from Batuu. Walt Disney Imagineers recently met with students from the Naval Postgraduate School’s Department of Systems Engineering for a tour of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios! As part of an industry familiarization tour, the group learned about the latest state-of-the-art concepts, tools, and best practices in corporate engineering. We were honored to host this group of Department of Defense engineers and technologists as part of our long history of respect and appreciation for the U.S. Armed Forces.”
Imagine being part of THAT tour! Brilliant minds building brilliant futures for sure! Interested in learning more about Galaxy’s Edge?
