Admin

Countdown until we see the “Man Arrested for Stealing Family Brick from Disney’s Walk Around the World.”

I think I’d go chisel mine out myself.

From WDW News Today:

“The bricks, part of “Disney’s Walk Around the World,” were committed to be on display until 2011. Since the bricks were not designed to be removed individually, they will not be available to take home. Instead, anyone who sponsored a brick may purchase a commemorative version between now and Aug. 31, 2019.”

Why Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Won’t Be as Crowded as You Think It Will Be

From Attractions Magazine:

“Looking at those comparisons, we come to this: A new Star Wars-themed land that is nearly as large as Hogsmeade, Diagon Alley and Pandora – The World of Avatar put together!”

Even with the size of the land itself, I still want to ride the attractions without four hours in line for each one.

Just being in the land isn’t enough for us. Enjoy those benches!

Guests Inside Galaxy’s Edge Will Have Persistent Interaction with Star Wars Elements

Admin

From wftv.com:

“Every cast member will be in character, the food and beverage and language will be in story. The merchandise inside the shops won’t be in boxes that say Disney on them. Everything is very, very immersive.”

Definitely looking forward to this. Except for the crowds…

Immersive can only take me so far when the park is shoulder-to-shoulder and I’m constantly dodging scooters and strollers.
