It's official... Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge has named its first planet. Batuu, as it's affectionately called by space voyagers and driods alike, sits on the outer edge of a galaxy far, far away.
To see it, you'll have to join a Star Tours intergalactic mission as they're the only craft fast enough to travel through space and time to see it and get you back before the year 2350. There's certainly no earthly space taxi fast enough to get you there and back, in this lifetime anyway. Not to worry though, the Star Tours fleet can scoot along at a pretty good clip. And don't forget that little thrust booster called hyperdrive that shoots you up to light speed at 186,000 miles per second, give or take a few thousand miles per second either way. In fact, Star Tours space fighters are so fast, you'll be back on solid ground before lunch.
We have some great Disneyland ticket prices you'll want to tak advantage of this season, as tickets will no doubt be heading up next year.
Opening in 2019, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland park in Anaheim, Calif., and Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Fla., are Disney Parks’ largest single-themed land expansions ever at 14-acres each, transporting guests to a never-before-seen planet, a remote trading port and one of the last stops before wild space where Star Wars characters and their stories come to life. These authentic lands will have two signature attractions, including the ability to take the controls of one of the most recognizable ships in the galaxy, the Millennium Falcon, on a customized secret mission, and an epic Star Wars adventure that puts guests in the middle of a climactic battle.
