A sneak peek into Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge opening at Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World.
Today I had the chance to attend a sneak peek media event for Hollywood Studios 30th Anniversary Celebration at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. If you’re following me over on Instagram then you already knew this!
We are able to find out tons of the exciting new things happening at Hollywood Studios (such as the Disney Junior Dance Party) and things coming up in the near future. There’s SO many new things happening at Hollywood Studios. One of the most highly anticipated is the opening of Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, opening Aug. 29, 2019 – 14-acre immersive land that will invite guests to live their own Star Wars stories, including taking the controls of the Millennium Falcon.

Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge
I had the chance of a lifetime to get to go behind the scenes today and SEE INTO STAR WARS GALAXY’S EDGE!! WHATTTT?!!? My friend Alan (from MousePlanet) and I were two of the very first civilians to ever enter into Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge – which was INCREDIBLE. It’s more spectacular than anything ever at Disney before. From the rock formations to soaring buildings, the expansive 14 acre space will make you feel like you’ve been transported into scenes from the iconic films. Guests will be able to purchase food, merchandise, meet their favorite characters, fly the Millenium Falcon on a thrilling interactive smuggling mission, and join the Resistance in a climactic battle against the First Order.
Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge sits towards the back of Hollywood Studios and will be accessible from the walkway between Commisary Lane and Grand Avenue, and will also be accessible from beloved Toy Story Land.
While I wasn’t allowed to bring my camera backstage (bummer!), I was able to interview a Walt Disney World Imagineer about the new land. Check out my video below as I asked Chad, Project Manager for Walt Disney Imagineering, about what he’s most excited about!
