Names Announced for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Attractions Coming to Walt Disney World

We are so excited to learn that during D23’s Destination D Mickey Mouse Fan Celebration there was a major announcement made related to the attractions coming to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.  The new land is set to open at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and Disneyland Resort in California.  The land will be an immersive Star Wars themed land with new attractions, dining and shopping experiences for guests to enjoy.  Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products Chairman Bob Chapek has now revealed the names of the two signature attractions set to open in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge when it finally opens.  The land will open at Disneyland Resort next summer and at Walt Disney World Resort in fall 2019.

The new attractions are officially known as Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.  Guests will be able to take the controls and be part of one of three different roles on the Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run attraction.  During Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance guests will be a part of the battle between the First Order and the Resistance, which will also include a face off with Kylo Ren.
