Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Led to Over 7,000 Jobs Created in Central Florida

As part of their increasing media build up ahead of the August 29th opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Disney put out some jobs numbers as it relates to the new 14-acre land.

The 7,000 jobs created figure comes from the start of the project and includes 1,700 operational roles, including leadership positions, entertainment performers, attractions engineers, and food and beverage and merchandise hosts and hostesses. Additional jobs resulted from the support of both small and large Florida-based companies, creating over 5,500 local trade, artisan and construction roles.

Of course, now that the construction has largely come to an end, those 5,500 local trade and construction jobs leave the project. That said, Walt Disney World is in the midst of a huge construction boom as they prepare for the resort’s 50th anniversary in 2021.
