Yes let's talk instead about how great Galaxy's Edge is going to be, how good of a ride MFSR is going to be, and how amazing a ride RotR is going to be.

omg can we make it so "TLJ", "The Last Jedi", etc. are banned in here. I JUST WANNA TALK ABOUT THE LAND
So I really like the part where you go through the green houses and view the various food crops... I especially like the ones hanging from the ceiling... There's also this pretty good attraction where you feel like you're hang gliding over various landmarks from around the world.... 😉

Still, I consider it bad form to *respond* to an off-topic argument and *then* to try to make sure you're the one who gets the last word by saying it is off-topic and that we need to get back to the original topic.

Now, let's get back to Star Wars Land.
This reminds me of the early days of e-mail when someone would 'reply all', then, everyone piles on to explain how that person is wasting everyone's time !

After some more digging, I've found evidence of the kind of interactions you can have in and around the land. There will be 'missions' available for you to go on separate from (but possibly related to) the ride missions themselves.

Some possible mission titles:
  • Prove Your Worth
  • Dianoga Mission
  • Mynock Mission
  • Brainworm Mission
  • Ollopom Mission
  • Discover the Threat
  • Find the Ship
  • Find the Master Mechanic
  • OTS Training
From the looks of it, you will be 'chatting' with a contact for these missions. They involve multiple steps each. You can make decisions to follow their advice or sabotage the missions. That will affect future missions. Some missions come with rewards (in the form of money, somehow).

Note that this is from a pre-release version, so there's no guarantee it will make it to the shipped version.

From another site... Broad General Review

One word: Incredible.
Other accolades apply, of course; amazing, authentic, transformative, detailed, inspired. They all amount to the same thing. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will be––no, is incredible.
In a mere handful of days, Disney’s eagerly-awaited new land will be opening inside Disneyland Park. Early unveiling has commenced for the few and fortunate. Cast Members and their invited guests can now explore much of Batuu and test ride the one available attraction: Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run.
Just seeing it is an experience. Following the incredibly creative example of Cars Land, and more recently, Pandora, the new Star Wars scene positively transports you to a movie set far, far away. The level of detail and authenticity drag you into another galaxy. The sights, sounds, and eventually the smells… most guests will never realize that the entire area was once––up until very recently––a backstage maintenance facility.
The attraction itself simply adds to the feeling. Guests wind their way through a convincingly fashioned spaceport for a time until making their way, undeniably, onto the decks of a perfectly-reconstructed Millennium Falcon. True to the brand, the queue is part of the adventure, which is fortunate, as guests will be spending a fair amount of time in it. The queue is insanely detailed, think Flight of Passage at Disney’s Animal Kingdom detailed.
It takes a while to get from the head of the line into a seat on the ride. Part of that is intentional. There are several pre-show segments, and a number of hallways and flight decks. Then, there is the fact the entire area is going to be beset by more humans that can practically fit into any limited space, despite what Disney hopes to alleviate with the novel reservation system.
Once in the captain’s chair, the sense of nostalgia is almost overwhelming. The rumors and fleeting online glimpses are true. The ride itself takes place within a true-to-life Millennium Falcon flight simulator.
Veteran Walt Disney World guests will immediately recognize similarities with the much-beloved Star Tours. I’d say the two experiences are parallel in terms of thrill level. While many would liken this to Epcot’s Mission: SPACE attraction due to flashing interactivity and scripted expectations, you really are in full control of your flight experience with the Falcon. That being said, if you incur damage on your journey, you will see it… and feel it.
Six guests at a time enter the legendary Millennium Falcon cockpit, adopting one of three roles: pilot, gunner, and engineer, and are then arranged into two rows, accordingly. The assignment is not strictly nominal. Should you choose to––and you ought––each flier has a series of duties to fulfill. The captain has certain flight responsibilities, gunners get to shoot at potential targets, while engineers are charged with fixing damage wrought by the actions of the others.
All the while, beyond the segmented flight screen, a dramatic galactic adventure unfolds. It can be difficult to focus upon and properly appreciate the space age creativity, what with all the button pressing and piloting going on. Try to balance your responsibilities with the available passive enjoyment, or you may come to the end feeling as though you have missed something. For those who want a more hands-off experience, there are autopilot buttons in the cockpit. You have the option of just setting them and simply enjoying the ride.
Smugglers Run fulfills a lifelong dream for many to pilot the Millennium Falcon, and the level of detail is above all that has preceded it. This, combined with the variations in each ride, will make this a highly repeatable experience for guests… despite the fact that it’s really just the world’s largest arcade gaming cockpit.
You can always ride Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run again, and you should. Who knows, though, when you’ll get that next opportunity.

She has been there... another review....possible spoilers I'm sure.




1. Cantina was too packed and she couldn't get in....I"m sure will be a common occurrence.
2. She was upset at her Falcon pilot for crashing into everything... everyone lost credits.
3. She loved the ride.... Walk up to Falcon takes your breath away. It's amazing.
4. Blue Milk taste like a blue flavored push-up or push-pop...whatever they are called.
5. Ronto Wrap is not bad...she liked it.
6. Resistance Troopers, Chewie, Kylo Ren walks around and interacts with you.
7. Light Sabers are really cool. Priced from 100-200
8. One of the coolest things is the sounds you hear....very immersive.
9. She didn't build a robot or lightsaber.
10. Only land she has been to where she felt completely immersed.
11. Cast members where all on point and in character.

Thanks kevlightyear- we've had insiders and sleuths, but I think you might be our first hacker.

Brainworm- I remember that episode of Clone Wars:

Never heard of Ollopom before:

Anyone who doesn't know what Dianogas or Mynocks are doesn't deserve to see this land before me.

I'll admit, I have no idea what those are. I haven't even seen all the movies. I just enjoy the hunt.

Kinda disappointed that they did not do a better job of incorporating these into a structure or onto a roof. Kinda takes away from the ambiance!

Don't worry, Disneyland CM's have explained on Twitter that those are temporary lighting rigs installed for the barage of media events that will begin this weekend and run through the following week. The lighting rigs will culminate in the Dedication Ceremony on May 29th, live streamed on the Internet. They will be removed on May 30th, along with other lighting and pre-opening equipment, as the land is "reset" for its May 31st official Grand Opening to the public.

The Dedication Ceremony is the evening of May 29th, as announced today by Disneyland here....
