When Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge opened in Disneyland this summer, it was groundbreaking for a few reasons. Not only was it the first theme park expansion dedicated entirely to Star Wars, but Oga’s Cantina marked the first time that alcohol would be available in the park outside of the the exclusive Club 33 and other private events on park grounds. Now, Walt Disney World in Florida will offer another first in Galaxy’s Edge when it opens in August: alcoholic beverages will be available in the land there outside of Oga’s Cantina. Read More »

Disney Parks announced a new nighttime spectacular that will be opening at the park in 2020, a new limited time experience at the Epcot Center, details on a Ratatouille experience and Beauty and the Beast sing-along coming to the France Pavillion, and a ton of Mickey Mouse-centric celebrations, including a new cinematic nighttime experience that starts with the iconic mouse and runs through Disney’s history of spectacular animation.

With the success of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, it’s a wonder that Disney hasn’t forced movie adaptations of every single one of their theme park rides into existence. On the other hand, 2015’s Tomorrowland (not to mention 2003’s The Haunted Mansion) was a sign that not every theme park adaptation is a guaranteed hit, so it’s unsurprising that Disney would tread cautiously.

That didn’t exactly change with tonight’s big Star Wars Land preview on ABC’s The Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60 special — we still don’t know when exactly it’ll open, and we don’t know that much about what rides, stores, etc. to expect — but we did get a better sense of what the themed area will look like.
