We here at Chip & Co. are pretty excited about the opening of Galaxy’s Edge coming to Disneyland and Walt Disney World next year. Star Wars fans all over the world are waiting to visit their favorite galaxy far, far away. We’ve already shared the exciting news about the new attractions and the new music that is coming with these new lands. Today, we have some photos. James Taylor Baker, also known as Heliguy on Instagram, got some overhead shots of the progress in Anaheim.
From what we can see in his photos, Galaxy’s Edge is going to take up a pretty big chunk of Disneyland property. He also zoomed in on everyone’s favorite Star Wars ship, the Millennium Falcon. There are some high rise buildings that have gone up and are waiting for their new exteriors. From the wide shots, we can see that some of the rock formations are complete, but not all of them. The Millennium Falcon looks to be a centerpiece for this new area, and I really like that you will be able to see it from the outside. This will be a great photo opportunity and, hopefully, we’ll spot some Photopass photographers over there.
In addition to a pretty awesome sounding experience going on in the Millennium Falcon (who doesn’t want to try to fly it?!) there are a few other fun things coming, as well. The Black Spire Outpost will feature some shopping from street vendors, and Oga’s Cantina will be serving blue milk. Also, for the first time in Disneyland, alcoholic beverages will be available in Oga’s Cantina, as well. Keep your eyes open for RX-24, your original Star Tours pilot, because he has made a career change and will now be appearing in Oga’s Cantina as the DJ.
