Disney's new 'Star Wars' theme park to open in May

Disney announces opening dates for Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge

The opening date was announced Thursday at the Walt Disney Co.'s annual shareholder meeting, along with the earlier opening of Star Wars May 31 at Disneyland in California.

Galaxy's Edge, the land where theme park guests will be able to join the Resistance in its battle against the First Order in the Star Wars saga, will open August 29 at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Phase Two, which includes Rise of the Resistance, will be "later this year".

At that time, guests will be immersed in the planet Batuu, where they can interact with odd characters, shop and dine at interplanetary hot spots, and partake in a new ride called Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run.

The Belgium global reportedly butted heads with his teammate over the latter's missed penalty against the Saints at Old Trafford. The Belgian striker had the chance to bag a hat-trick deep into stoppage time when United won a penalty.

More information about Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge should be on the horizon. The Walt Disney World version, at the Hollywood Studios park in Orlando, Florida, will follow a few months later on August 29, 2019. The attraction is said to be long and complex, with riders stepping on board a vehicle to escape from a First Order Star Destroyer, coming face-to-face with dozens of animatronic Stormtroopers, life-size AT-AT Walkers, and Kylo Ren himself.

At Disneyland in Anaheim, California, guests will need a reservation to enter the 14-acre (5.6 hectare) section called "Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge" between opening day and June 23, in addition to a park admission ticket, Disney said in a statement.

They also point to his renegotiation of Nafta as something that will help reduce the United States trade deficit in the long run. While goods exports hit a record $1.7 trillion in 2018, they declined in the last three months of the year, weighed by the U.S.

Restaurants serving blue milk and shops where you can build your own lightsaber or droid will also be open for business as guests are transported to the remote planet Batuu on the outer rim of the galaxy.

Park visitors who stay at one of Disneyland's own hotels during that time will automatically receive one reservation for each guest. Yes, creating new Star Wars movies is all well and good, but when you're Disney and you've also got a theme park element to your business empire, you're obviously going to create some Star Wars stuff.
