TIME Magazine Names Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in “World’s Greatest Places 2019”

There have been tons of discussions surrounding the success and popularity at Disneyland’s Galaxy’s Edge. However, according to TIME Magazine, they have named the land one of their Greatest Places of 2019 to visit.

From TIME Magazine:

Nearly seven years after the Walt Disney Co.’s acquisition of Lucasfilm comes Disneyland’s largest-ever single land expansion—and a shift of the California theme park’s nostalgic identity toward more futuristic experiences. At Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, guests don’t simply mingle with their favorite characters, they live among them while customizing their own droids at the Droid Depot (see photo) and visiting Oga’s Cantina, Disneyland’s first public watering hole serving alcoholic space brews and “blue milk.” The 14-acre land brings planet Batuu and its trading post to life, along with two groundbreaking attractions: a Millennium Falcon–themed flight simulator, open now, and the multifaceted cinematic journey of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, opening later this year.

Galaxy’s Edge isn’t even complete as the highly anticipated attraction Rise of the Resistance is still on the way and will open on January 17, 2020, at Disneyland, and December 5th at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Galaxy’s Edge opened on  May 31, 2019, at Disneyland, and will open on August 29, 2019, at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World. The land will open sometime after 2021 at Walt Disney Studios Park in Disneyland Paris Resort.
