2019 can’t come soon enough!  As we get closer we get more and more details on Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.  At D23 Destination D, we were given additional information on what’s coming to Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort in 2019!  And it looks amazing!

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will feature two signature attractions that will immerse guests in the Star Wars galaxy.  At D23 Destination D, the official attraction names were released.  Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will be part of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort!

Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run

We were thrilled when we first heard that Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge would feature the Millennium Falcon.  But we were elated when we heard this would be an attraction!  We cannot wait to board the Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and jump into hyperspace!

Guests will be tasked with a unique mission aboard the Millennium Falcon.  Each guest will be have one of three flight crew roles – pilot the Millennium Falcon, shoot blasters, or prepare for hyperspace!

Here’s a teaser released by Disney of Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run coming to Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort:

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance

The second attraction at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance!  This attraction will be the biggest built in scale ever at Disney Parks.  It will immerse guests inside the hangar bay while in the middle of an epic battle between the First Order and the Resistance.

Here’s a sneak peek of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance coming to Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort:
