Happy Feel Good Friday!

Today, we’re sharing a healthy dose of both #FeelFoodFriday and #FlashbackFriday. You may remember that a few weeks ago, we welcomed more than 1,000 local students from Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida to Batuu to experience Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge before it officially opened to guests.

As the students piloted the Falcon, tasted the local treats, and steered clear of the First Order, I couldn’t help but notice just how much they had our hundreds of cast members smiling from ear to ear. Their positive energy was contagious!

But these outstanding students didn’t stop the feel-good moments there—we recently received hundreds of beautifully illustrated, handwritten letters from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida, overflowing with enthusiasm about their visit to a galaxy far, far away and thanking our cast members for providing such a memorable trip.

Watch the video below to join us in reminiscing in the positive moments created for children and adults alike through the words of these thoughtful local students.


  • Very nice of Disney to make this magic happen. These folks will remember this for life. Maybe inspire a few to work for Disney.
