HOT DATES

Galaxy’s Edge

SUMMER

EVENTS Opened early!

Disneyland’s new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is, at 14 acres, Disney’s largest single-themed land expansion ever. Its Black Spire Outpost is a village on the planet of Batuu, full of unique sights, sounds, smells and tastes. Guests become part of the story, sampling galactic food and beverages, exploring the wares of intriguing merchants and, at Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, taking the controls of the most famous ship in the galaxy. Interactions with the Play Disney Parks mobile app deepen their engagement. p. 50
