Fly-Through Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Disney Parks
Rumors have been circulating earlier this year that a Star Wars-themed resort would be coming to Walt Disney World.
Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts, has now revealed the official name of the Star Wars-inspired lands that are currently under construction at the Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts, and shared details on the immersive experiences guests will be able to enjoy when the lands open in 2019

According to Bob, this revolutionary new vacation experience will be a living adventure that allows guests to immerse themselves in an entirely new form of Disney storytelling.
“From the second you arrive, you will become a part of a Star Wars story! You’ll immediately become a citizen of the galaxy and experience all that entails, including dressing up in the proper attire.
Once you leave Earth, you will discover a starship alive with characters, stories, and adventures that unfold all around you.
It is 100% immersive, and the story will touch every single minute of your day, and it will culminate in a unique journey for every person who visits.”
“It’s unlike anything that exists today.” Bob said.
