Located at both Disneyland park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World® Resort, these projects mark the largest “land” expansion in the history of the parks.
Galaxy’s Edge will feature 2 new attractions:
Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run will allow guests to pilot the famed ship in a simulator. (Available on opening day)
