Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is said to be the biggest attraction that can be found inside Disneyland and cost a whopping $1 billion. It features the replica of the iconic Millennium Falcon, which perfectly crafted from the Star Wars franchise.
Other attractions that can be found at Disneyland's Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge are the Rise of the Resistance and the Black Spire Outpost, which is a new village in the Star Wars world, per Unilad. People behind the park's development said the place was inspired by Middle Eastern architecture, from the cities like Istanbul and Jerusalem.
Aside from attractions and rides, there will also be restaurants and cafes guests can go to inside the park. It has Ronto Roasters and Oga's Cantina to fill visitors' hungry stomachs.
However, visiting the new attraction comes with a big price. Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge's one-day; one-park ticket costs $104 on a low-demand day. For the regular and prime-time visits, like on holidays and weekends, tickets cost $149.
But despite the big price, Disneyland is expecting a surge of people coming to see Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, according to Orange County Register. Although the soft-opening only caters guests with initial reservations, they should expect to wait in long lines before they get in a new attraction, ride the Millennium Falcon, visit the cantina, experience the DIY lightsaber, and droid shops.
Guests should also bring in a lot of patience before they get inside Disneyland. The soft-opening is said to be for the management to know how to control the crowd and see how visitors react and respond to the new Black Spire Outpost on the Star Wars planet of Batuu. Walt Disney World in Florida will also have its own Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge that will be opened on August 29.
