A bet already won without even needing MI lottery promo code. We are talking about Galaxy’s Edge, the new section of Disneyland in Anaheim that has been getting a resounding success since its opening day, on May 31.
With 18.6 million admissions last year, the park, which has recently celebrated its first 60 years, is hoping that, with this further expansion, it will exceed 20 million admissions by the end of 2019. In the meantime, until June 23, Galaxy’s Edge will be open only to those who have booked their stay in the hotels of the park. The lucky ones will be able to visit the 113 thousand square meters of the new section of the park, “the most immersive we have ever built” according to what Bob Chapek, head of Disney’s parks division, said during an interview.
Two days before the opening to the public, Disney wanted to launch everything with an unforgettable fireworks display that was attended by some of the most famous faces of the Star Wars universe, from the “father” of the saga George Lucas, to truly iconic actors such as Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Billy Dee Williams, respectively playing Han Solo, Luke Skywalker and Lando Calrissian.
An experience that can take visitors to their beloved “faraway galaxy” and allow them to enjoy a reckless flight on the legendary Millennium Falcon (in the attraction “Smugglers Run”, which can accommodate up to six people on the deck), a snack at the Oga Garra alien’s winery or a stroll on the new and distant planet of Batuu, shaped for the occasion by getting inspiration from cultures and architectures not only of the original trilogy but also from metropolises such as Istanbul and Jerusalem, and landscapes such as the Moroccan ones.
Food and drink are the ones that populate the many films in the series, all the characters (those famous such as Rey, Finn, Kylo Ren, Chewbacca or the less known ones) wander around the different attractions, there is even a soundtrack expressly composed by John Williams (a main theme arranged and used in various versions for different environments) and of course there are shops with gadgets and official products.
All in an integrated way, limiting as much as possible the artificial sensation that is typical of parks, even the most involving ones. To do all this, Disney has spent a billion on Anaheim’s “Galaxy’s Edge” and for the one that will open on August 29 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios within the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida.
Each employee and operator of that gigantic section of the park, which develops north of “Frontierland“, will have their own role and background, as a member of a cast perpetually on stage, and can thus place their figure within Star Wars’ infinite ecosystem. The aim is to make those who interact forget, at least for a moment, that they are in a colossal amusement park.
Let’s not forget also that the Star Wars saga will soon be back on the big screen with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Episode IX, the last chapter of the new trilogy to be released in cinemas around the world next December.
