  • I’ve been waiting a lifetime for this land. I was 5 in 1977. Star Wars Kenner toys were the focal point of my childhood. Now as an adult, THIS land will be my Fountain of Youth. As DVC Members, Annual Passholders, runDisney freaks and Disney Cruise Line aficionados, I’m BEYOND excited to visit and pilot the Falcon in November during Wine N Dine and again in January to experience Rise of the Resistance during Dopey. Proudly watching from Oakville, Ontario, CANADA!

  • One of the magical parts of Smuggler’s Run. Is the daylight on the ride reflects the time day in the real world. Yesterday flying just after sunset. was so special. it was the first time i noticed this magical effect. 82 flights and counting. Download the Disney Play Data pad for GE. I have almost complete all the scans, hacks, tunes and jobs. When you have the app open and you fly the falcon, Hondo pays you galactic credits. I have earned $400,000.

    Could you send the link for making reservations for the light saver building shop?

  • Bright suns, #DisneyParksLIVE team! Thank you for sharing such an outstanding and very symbolic dedication ceremony for those of us who couldn’t be there in person! The music and sights gave me goosebumps and fondly reminded me of our first time seeing the Storm Troopers open Star Wars Weekend by marching on the turnstile’s roofs. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge looks absolutely breathtaking and we can’t wait to explore it when we visit Disney’s Hollywood Studios in November! Thanks!
