Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to Open August 29 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

For the first time ever, there’s a place where you can live your very own Star Wars™ story. Come discover yourself in a whole new land where a galaxy far, far away unfolds all around you. Welcome to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, opening August 29, 2019 at Walt Disney World® Resort.

You’ll be immersed in the alluring offerings of a mysterious outpost that’s a haven for scoundrels, rogues and smugglers. Around corners and through back alleys, you can encounter strange creatures and alien languages. Touch ancient antiquities from across the galaxy. You can build your own droids and a custom lightsaber. And be sure to drop by the cantina to sample the local beverages and curious concoctions. This marketplace summons your senses to life like never before.

On Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, you’ll board the Millennium Falcon, where legends have been made and new ones are about to be created. You and your crew are part of a covert mission that directs you to take control of the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy. The engines rumble as the Falcon blasts off as you enter hyperspace and into the adventure you’ve always dreamed of. Along the way you’ll face excitement around every turn and sway, plus the looming threat of the First Order!

Next, it’s Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, opening later in the year. Steady your nerves and summon your resolve—because you and other Resistance recruits have boarded a transport that has been captured by a Star Destroyer. In an instant, you’ll be caught in blaster fire from stormtroopers surrounding you. And if that’s not enough, you’ll discover how huge the excitement can get when you round a corner and discover a towering AT-AT—with its lasers pointed…Right. At. You. At last, a sudden red glow cuts the darkness and the crackle of a lightsaber announces an inevitable showdown with Kylo Ren himself.

So, raise a glass of Blue Milk. Because soon the time will come to live your adventure in a galaxy far, far away at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios®, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge and its experiences are subject to capacity. Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is not available at opening and will open later in the year.

Work Continues On The ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’-Themed Roller Coaster at Epcot

"May 4, 2018 - Today we have an exciting update to share with you from Future World at Epcot.

Earlier this week, 960 trucks’ worth of concrete was poured to create the foundation of what will soon take shape as Epcot’s mammoth “Guardians of the Galaxy”-themed attraction. The attraction is on track to become one of the world’s longest enclosed coasters, and to house it, a new facility is being built adjacent to the existing Universe of Energy building.
