Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge Episode III: Its Opening Week

By the time you’re listening to this podcast Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at the Disneyland theme park will be well into its second week of operation. This is a moment we’ve been waiting for, for years now. In fact you could say we’ve even been waiting for this since 2012 when Disney acquired Lucasfilm and the Star Wars properties from George Lucas.

Now the land itself was first publicly announced in 2015 at D23 it feels like its taken longer than that to get it up and running. Next, to the opening of Disneyland in 1955 and the opening of Walt Disney World in 1971, this might be the biggest Disney theme park opening ever.

There’s still plenty to come, in fact not only are we waiting for the Orlando version to open in Hollywood Studios at the end of the Summer but we’re also still waiting for the premier attraction in Rise of the Resistance to open in Disneyland.

In previous episodes, we’ve brought you our Star Wars Saga which we will now continue today. So get ready for Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge Episode III: Its Opening Week.

We have to, of course, preface this by saying neither of us has been out to Disneyland yet to see this land so today we’re really just going to tell you to want we’re hearing about the grand opening of the land. The pros and cons and what we’re most looking forward to now that we can see inside the land.

Plus, Hollywoods Studios looks to be getting a change in their FP+ tier system and we share our thoughts on the new Summer One World Ticket coming to Disney World. All that and more on this episode of WDW Opinion.
