Two days before Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge officially opened to the public, five active-duty members of America’s armed forces, and their families, were treated to a very special sneak peek. Disney wanted to share their gratitude and appreciation for the military and selected one member from each branch of service for this special day, representing the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard.
Bob Chapek, Disney Parks, Experience and Consumer Products Chairman, hosted the families personally. Everyone had a chance to crew the Millenium Falcon, build droids and lightsabers, peruse the marketplace, and finish it all off with cold blue milk.
What an amazing opportunity for our service members and their families.
That’s all we have for now, but check back here at Chip and Company, for all Star Wars and Disney related news!
