Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Reaches Construction Milestone at Walt Disney World

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is currently under construction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World.  The Star Wars themed land will be a 14-acre expansion that will incorporate current space within the park as well as areas that were previously used as backstage areas.  This huge transformation will take multiple years to complete and we already can’t wait.  Recently a new construction milestone was reached at the site in Walt Disney World.  Cast members and Imagineers put drawings, signatures and messages on one of the construction beams that will be one of the support beams for the new land. These special touches become a part of the very special history of the attraction.  The beam signings are one of the construction traditions at Disney Parks and a really awesome experience for those that get to participate.

Currently the new themed land, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, is scheduled to open at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disneyland park in 2019.  The land will be an immersive experience into the Star Wars universe featuring new attractions, entertainment and dining options that are completely detailed to completely fit in with what you would expect to see in a galaxy far, far away.

Who else can’t wait for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to open?  Check back here for more updates as we have them!

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
