Star Wars lightsaber

Wow! It’s been a crazy couple of weeks since the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opening at Disneyland® Resort in Anaheim in May. Star Wars fans like us have been going insane — and for good reason. We’ve been geeking out right alongside fellow Disney guests. It truly is an out-of-this-world experience. Haven’t booked your trip yet? What are you waiting for?! Here are just a few of the reasons you need to get to California to check out this amazing new Star Wars land at Disneyland® Resort ASAP!

1. Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run

This immersive attraction that takes you aboard the iconic ship was something fans were looking forward to long before the Star Wars theme park opened. According to Star Wars fans on social media, it didn’t disappoint. However, keep in mind you’re going to be waiting a while. Reports have been showing wait times for Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run between 1-3 hours. Worth it? Definitely.

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is set to open soon, so we’re excited to see what fans think of this experience too!

2. Immersive character meet and greets

Have you ever wanted to meet your favorite Star Wars characters? There’s no better place than here. Disney lovers will tell you all the time about magical character experiences at the parks. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is no exception. Fans are loving the non-formal meet-and-greets around the land — from one-on-one chats with Rey to watching fireworks with Chewbacca.

3. The amount of detail is incredible.

We all know that Disney doesn’t do anything that isn’t spectacular. However, the detail and imagination that went into Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Anaheim is beyond expectations. This one fan put it better than we can, calling it “an extraordinary artistic achievement.” If you’re a true Star Wars fan, you simply have to see it to believe it. Some people were even saying they forgot they were at Disneyland® Resort!


4. The coolest merch in the galaxy.

Does anyone have a spare $25,000? You could get this customizable, life-size R2-D2. Not quite in the budget? That’s OK! You’re sure to find other amazing and incredibly realistic goodies at the Droid Depot to bring a little bit of a galaxy far, far away back home with you — at various prices. Fans are also loving constructing a lightsaber at Savi’s Workshop.


5. Blue Milk, anyone?
