Update: We have added some additional photos to the article. Enjoy.

We’ve been waiting for more details about the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge hotel for months, and the curtain was pulled back tonight during the D23 Expo. Bob Chapek, Disney’s head of parks, introduced attendees to the Halcyon, the name of the Star Wars galactic star cruiser that will serve as a lodging place for paying visitors at the Walt Disney World theme park in Orlando. Check out some new photos below. Read More »

Star Wars Galaxy's Edge Food Menu

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 »

On Friday’s episode of Ordinary Adventures, we return to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to take a look at more ridiculous merchandise being sold in Star Wars Land. As we said in our original video, we love that Batuu sells some insanely obscure prop replicas that only real Star Wars fans could love. We profiled the most ridiculous Star Wars prop replicas and Galaxys Edge merchandise in a video, which has become one of most popular videos to date. In today’s video, we return to Batuu to show you a few things that just didn’t make it into our initial video.

crashing the millennium falcon in galaxys edge

Last month we ran an experiment to see what would happen if you rode the Millenium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run attraction in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge without touching a button or controlling the steering. The result was one of our most popular videos, and you can watch that here. We have returned to Batuu to run another experiment, this time we are trying to crash the Millenium Falcon. Oh, of course, you can’t crash the ship — there is no fail state, this is a theme park ride after all. But we’re going to do our best to hit everything we possibly can. The gunners are going to shoot at nothing as much as they possibly can and the Engineers will fix nothing and do nothing. The purpose? Let’s see what the lowest possible score we can get on this Star Wars Land ride.

Rise of the Resistance opening

One of the few disappointments regarding the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in California was that Rise of the Resistance, the new expansion’s most advanced ride, would not be ready in time for the land’s grand debut. But now the official opening dates have been revealed for both Disneyland and Disney World, and they’re accompanied by a cool new poster featuring Kylo Ren looming over the action. Get all the details below. Read More »

Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run, the first ride to open in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, puts you in the cockpit of the most famous hunk of junk in the galaxy. It’s a fully-interactive motion simulator which puts you and a group of five people on a smuggling mission with Han Solo’s infamous ship. But we’ve been wondering, what happens if you don’t do anything? What happens if the pilots don’t steer the ship? What happens if the gunners don’t fire at the incoming tie fighters and obstacles? What happens if the engineers don’t fix the damage? What happens if you don’t pull the lever to jump to hyperspace? We attempted to conduct an experiment to find out. Watch and see what happens.
