TIME Magazine has released their Greatest Places of 2019 and Disney’s newest land, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland, has made the “To Visit” section of the list. Here’s what they had to say:
Nearly seven years after the Walt Disney Co.’s acquisition of Lucasfilm comes Disneyland’s largest-ever single land expansion—and a shift of the California theme park’s nostalgic identity toward more futuristic experiences. At Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, guests don’t simply mingle with their favorite characters, they live among them while customizing their own droids at the Droid Depot (see photo) and visiting Oga’s Cantina, Disneyland’s first public watering hole serving alcoholic space brews and “blue milk.” The 14-acre land brings planet Batuu and its trading post to life, along with two groundbreaking attractions: a Millennium Falcon–themed flight simulator, open now, and the multifaceted cinematic journey of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, opening later this year.
Although TIME Magazine mentions that Rise of the Resistance opens later this year at Disneyland, it doesn’t. Rise of the Resistance will open on January 17, 2020 at Disneyland, and December 5th at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge has been open at Disneyland since May 31st and will open in one week at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. We offered our thoughts and first impressions of the Disney’s Hollywood Studios version earlier this week.
