Walt Disney World will take guests far, far away!

The Mature Mouse™ is a Star Wars fan. I am very excited about Disney’s construction of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Disney announced the addition of a new resort, connected to Galaxy’s Edge, that will immerse guests in the Star Wars universe by allowing them to engage in a type of role-playing vacation.

From the Disney Parks Blog: This first-of-its-kind resort will combine luxury with a complete immersion into an authentic Star Wars story. Guests’ journey through space will start when everyone departs together for a multiday Stars Wars adventure by boarding a starship alive with characters and stories that unfold all around them during a voyage through the galaxy.

Are you looking forward to booking a stay at this Star Wars resort? Do you like the level of immersion Disney is promising?

Extra Magic Hours for Toy Story Land

According to the Disney World Calendar, Disney’s Hollywood Studio will be offering daily Extra Magic Hours through July, possibly longer. This is similar to the offering made at Animal Kingdom Park last summer after the opening of Pandora: The World of Avatar.

Do you think the guest response to Toy Story Land will be the same as it has been to Pandora?
