Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Announced as Name for Star Wars Lands at Disney Parks

Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts, revealed the official name of the Star Wars-inspired lands that are currently under construction at the Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts, and shared details on the immersive experiences guests will be able to enjoy when the lands open in 2019.

The lands, both called Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, will allow guests to visit a remote trading port on the edge of wild space, where Star Wars characters and their stories come to life – and where guests will find themselves in the middle of the action.

The lands will feature two major attractions that put guests in the middle of a battle between the First Order and the Resistance. Each attraction – and even the land itself – will offer guests the chance to immerse themselves in the Star Wars universe like never before.

One attraction will make you feel like you’re on a Star Destroyer inside a hangar bay. It’s an attraction built on a scale they’ve never done before.

The second attraction will give guests the opportunity to fly the Millenium Falcon, piloting the ship, shooting blasters or preparing for hyperspace – all while completing a critical mission. But how you perform on the mission holds even bigger stakes: perform with skill and you may earn extra galactic credits, while bringing the ship back banged up could put you on the list of a bounty hunter. End up on Harkos’s list and you may face a problem if you show up at the local cantina!

Guests will also encounter many familiar faces inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, including BB-8, Chewbacca, members of the First Order and – among many others – Rex, the troublesome pilot you may remember from the previous version of a certain Disney attraction who takes on a new role in this land as the DJ at the cantina.

And speaking of the cantina, here guests will be able to try unique concoctions like blue milk. Nearby, they’ll also be able to acquire trinkets and treasures from across the galaxy.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will open in 2019, first at the Disneyland Resort and later in the year at the Walt Disney World Resort. (No further opening dates have been announced yet.)

Walt Disney’s First Hand-Drawn Map of Disneyland To be Auctioned

Though dozens of Disneyland attractions that were in the original park have since been torn down or replaced, there are some still standing today that were a part of Walt Disney’s vision from the very beginning.

In 1955, Disneyland opened its doors and became Walt Disney’s first theme park dream-come-true. But before that day could come, Walt needed investors.

The New York Times reported that a hand-drawn map, created by Walt himself and a friend named Herb Ryman, was completed “over one rushed weekend in September 1953 as part of a frantic effort to secure funding to build Disneyland.”

Now that map – the first piece of paper that shows Walt’s vision for Disneyland – is going to be auctioned off to one serious Disney fan.

Van Eaton Galleries will auction the map in June and its value is currently estimated at $750,000 to $1 million,

Take a closer look at the map HERE.
