Guests who stay at the Galactic Starcruiser will visit for two nights, during which they’ll be able to participate in tons of Star Wars activities, including “Story Moments” that can change your experience depending on which characters you interact with, droid racing, a visit to Batuu in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and more. Today there’s a new way to bring the Galactic Starcruiser right to your devices, and it’s left us wondering which side we’d join. Maybe it will give you an idea of who you are in the Star Wars universe!
From our first drop on Tower of Terror to a life-sized Carnosaurus trying to eat us on Dinosaur, Disney has found more ways to freak us out than we would’ve originally expected.
For parents with younger children, traumatizing little ones through the power of Disney magic during a family vacation might not be part of the game plan. They may try to avoid scary-ish rides altogether, sticking with tamer rides that provide “a world of laughter” or “happy little thoughts.” But however hard you might try to protect your child from the darker side of Disney, there are some ride scares you might not be able to avoid — and some you may not have expected to scare younger ones, at all.
You used to really only be able to get Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge merchandise if you were IN Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disney World or Disneyland.
Over the past year though, Disney has released some Galaxy’s Edge merchandise to select stores outside of the parks AND online. Recently, we shared that a whole new batch of Galaxy’s Edge merchandise would become available online soon, and the day has officially arrived. Get ready to swing over to the dark side with the latest round of Star Wars gear!
In the before times, if you wanted to snag some EPIC merchandise from Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge you used to have to take an intergalactic trip to Batuu (a.k.a. visit Galaxy’s Edge in Disney’s Hollywood Studios or at Disneyland).
But, last year a whole BUNCH of Galaxy’s Edge items started to become available online or even in other stores around Disneyland and Disney World through the “Star Wars Trading Post.” We’ve seen robes, lightsabers, droids, plushes, and SO much more become available online. And now another shipment of Galaxy’s Edge merchandise is on its way.
One of the main ideas behind Disney World is that everything is a “show.” That’s why employees in Disney World are called “Cast Members” and why their uniforms are called “costumes.”
Every single costume you see Cast Members wear has been well thought out as to how it can help tell the story of each particular ride, restaurant, shop, or land. Some costumes have stayed with us over the years and have a special place in our hearts, so let’s look at TEN Disney World costumes that we truly love!
If you know us, you know we’re following any information about this new hotel/cruise-like experience like a hawk and we’ve got some exciting new details to share since our last update, because Disney is now hiring for positions aboard the Galactic Starcruiser!
In late February, we got a sneak peek at tons of the unique merchandise shops coming to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge (click here for all those details!), and now we have BRAND NEW concept art for two shops — one populated by the First Order and one for the Resistance!
Resistance Supply will let you “rendezvous with other Resistance allies in a forested area near the ancient ruins!” [Read more…]
