​Disneyland Resort Current Event

Here is what ‘Star Wars’ land will look like, according to Disney’s model at the D23 Expo

"Two major rides will anchor the land – a Millennium Falcon simulator ride, which guests can pilot, and a second that pits the First Order against the Resistance. Chapek described the First Order ride as an immersive experience that 'defies categorization.'"

‘Star Wars’ land: A closer look at where things will be

"The north side will have two entry points. One will be a tunnel from the Fantasyland area, and the other will be through an arch near Mickey’s Toontown. This area looks to be more under control by the First Order with a TIE fighter parked on the north side. It will feature loads of First Order troops."

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Announced as Name for Star Wars Lands at Disney Parks

"One attraction will make you feel like you’re on a Star Destroyer inside a hangar bay. It’s an attraction built on a scale we’ve never done before.

The second attraction will give guests the opportunity to fly the Millenium Falcon, piloting the ship, shooting blasters or preparing for hyperspace – all while completing a critical mission."
