  1. “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” is kinda generic, I get what they’re going for and it’s not awful, but it doesn’t fit Disneyland’s layout at all. The closest that park has is “Mickey’s Toon Town”, then “Critter Country” and “New Orleans Square”, with the only other non “-land” name being Main Street, U.S.A., and “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” is a very different feel from all those.

  2. I think it works. SW is a different concept, even how Disney is warping it, and works this way. This way, they can fit in any SW character, locale, ship, event as "just stopping by."

    And they could have called it "Star Wars Land" and one or two or 20 million visitors would still shell out credits to get stuck in its crowded lines, of course.

    "Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge" is kinda generic, I get what they're going for and it's not awful, but it doesn't fit Disneyland's layout at all.

    Sounds like a Star Wars branded smart phone… or ladies' razor.

  4. A few of us journeyed to the park during daylight hours last weekend and checked it out from every angle the park offered – Big Thunder, the Mark Twain, and the train. In daylight, the amount they’ve achieved is staggering. There are MOUNTAINS up there, and large structures, and a sense of the grandiose is really coming together. It’s also impressive how much larger than Toontown it is – the original knockdown looked roughly the same size, which made sense, but they kept going, it now stretches from behind Critter Country all the way to Toontown! Taking Disneyland from 85 to 100 acres is apparently going to be a very large expansion.

    Also, WDW had a small event where they gave out trading cards that had promo info on the land: http://www.slashfilm.com/star-wars-galaxys-edge-images/
