Topic: Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge (NO SPOILERS)

I know we have a bunch of movie fans here, and a lot of Star Wars fans, so I'm curious what everybody thinks about Galaxy's Edge, opening at Disneyland this weekend and Walt Disney World later this year.

I will ask to avoid spoilers where we can, because I'm trying to go in spoiler-free and I live near Walt Disney World, but suffice it to say, I'm very excited. Both attractions sound really incredible, and I love the idea of free-roaming droids and characters. Pretty sure I'm going to skip the $200 build-your-own lightsaber, but the cantina sounds fun. And I did peek at the special bottles for Coke and Sprite inside the land.

I also do know there's a full-size replica of the Millennium Falcon, and blue milk. The dedication was last night for Disneyland, and you can check it out on YouTube if you so desire.

Wow, we're finally here, huh? Seems like just yesterday I was hearing about this for the first time.

...

Then again, longer and longer periods are beginning to seem like just yesterday, so... nevermind.

I saw the couple photos that Mark Hamill threw on twitter today, and, like, I was already excited, but holy crap it looks SO. GOOD.

And if everything works out by the time I can actually afford to go, all the crowds will have died off and I will be able to actually enjoy it.

I'll tell you what I think. I'm really excited for this, I really am!


But I live in Norway.

I wanna go, but like, I'm afraid of the cringe factor.  Can you rent it out to sulk in by yourself? :-P

So... I went last night, here in Orlando.

The spoiler free version is "OH MY GOD THAT WAS AMAZING," and only one of the two planned attractions, the attraction everybody is calling "the B-attraction," was open.

SPOILER Show
When I walked through the Smugglers Run queue and it transitioned from an intergalactic jetway to the hallways of the Falcon, I literally stopped walking, my knees decided to stop working, and I kind of stumbled down into a crouch and sat on my heels because... it was the Falcon. I was standing in a corridor of the Millennium Falcon.
