We spotted Star Wars Galaxy's Edge being built in the distance from the top of the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad ride. Later as we left the Park, standing on the top floor of the Mickey & Friends Parking Structure, we could see the whole thing! My son couldn't wait to go and fantasized about our trip to Star Wars Land the entire car ride home.
As a mom and longtime Disney Annual Passholder, I expect long lines and lots of crowds due to the popularity of Star Wars. We have one shot to see Star Wars Land for the first time … and I'm determined to make these memories the best ever for me and my child.
Before your little Padawan explodes from excitement, you need to get prepared. To help, I've collected the best Star Wars themed ideas you can wear, make, and bring to create the most memorable Galaxy's Edge experience ever!
