Wish Families Visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Walt Disney World

In anticipation of the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Walt Disney World, there have been a variety of special guests and visitors who have been able to get a sneak peek. Disney Parks Blog shared that more than 140 wish families who are staying at the nearby Give Kids the World Village (which is a nonprofit resort that provides cost-free vacations to children with life-threatening medical conditions and their families) will get to experience Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios during special community previews that are taking place in the immersive, themed land.


According to Disney Parks Blog, “Disney has supported the nonprofit resort since it opened its doors back in 1986, and we are honored to be a place where so many of these children’s wishes come true. In fact, more than 8,000 Disney-themed wishes are granted each year at Walt Disney World Resort, continuing our legacy as the top-requested Wish destination among children and their families.”

“One moment of magic can make a world of a difference for Wish children and their families,” said Tajiana Ancora-Brown, director of external affairs for Walt Disney World Resort. “We are honored to help these families create treasured, lifelong memories, especially in a land like Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, where they can become the heroes of their own Star Wars stories.”

The new of the experience was shared with families at a celebration held at Give Kids the World Village. They were given accessories to prepare for their journey to Batuu.

We hope these kiddos and their families enjoy their visit to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge!

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!
