One Night Only: Star Wars Galactic Nights

Having grown up being a huge Star Wars fan I was ecstatic when given the opportunity to attend Galactic Nights.

Out of this World Food

Disney is known for having stunning desserts and scrumptious food. But the chefs outdid themselves for Galactic Nights. From mouthwatering entrees including crab duo to pork wings with blueberry slaw, everything was delicious. And don’t get me started on the desserts. They were too pretty to eat. Well, almost!

Special Meet & Greets plus Unique Photo Ops

Guests of the special ticketed event got the chance to take pictures with characters not normally in the parks including the Seventh Sister, K-2SO and even the cuddly Porgs from The Last Jedi. There was even the chance to have your picture taken in front of the Millennium Falcon from artist renderings of Galaxy’s Edge.

Galactic Destinations

All night long the Hollywood Tower Hotel was transformed with an out of this world projection show featuring famous destinations throughout the Star Wars Saga. Stunning imagery took Guests on a ride through hyperspace visiting old favorites and giving glimpses of what’s to come.

Behind the Scenes of Galaxy’s Edge Panel

Everything was outstanding for Galactic Nights, but the Galaxy’s Edge panel was by far my favorite.

Star Wars Alum, Warwick Davis introduced the panel of Walt Disney Imagineers that gave us an inside peek at what to expect from Galaxy’s Edge in 2019. The panel included Scott Trowbridge -Portfolio Creative Executive at Walt Disney Imagineering; Chris Beatty -Executive Creative Director at Walt Disney Imagineering Robin Reardon -Executive Creative Producer at Walt Disney Imagineering and Doug Chiang – VP/Creative Director at Lucasfilm along with host David Collins.

It was a fun-filled hour of laughs, looks behind the scenes and just a smidgen of what will be waiting for Guests in Galaxy’s Edge in 2019.

The 2nd annual one night only event was a huge hit with Star Wars fan and I’m hopeful we’ll see it back for the 3rd year in 2018.
