Shortly after 8 o'clock this morning, Oga's Cantina opened in Disneyland's new Star Wars land, and a bartender served the first alcoholic beverage sold to the public inside Walt's original Disneyland park.
And the world did not end.
DJ R3X is playing music by the Modal Nodes, people are having a good time, Disney's making (lots of) money, and the only people inconvenienced by any of this are those queued up outside Oga's Cantina because once again Disney built a bar that was too small for public demand. (Trader Sam, meet Oga. I'm sure you two will have a lot to talk about.)
Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge has opened to the public at Disneyland and it has been our pleasure to bring you along as we experience Disney's biggest and most ambitious theme park land ever.
FULL LAND REVIEW: Bringing Star Wars to life in Disneyland's Galaxy's Edge
The new ride in the land is Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, where you get the opportunity to fly the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy.
Then we had some fun in the queue, learning more about this epic new interactive experience.
Traveling to the edge of the galaxy will make you hungry, so let's learn about the food and drinks available inside Disney's new Star Wars land.
And if you want to take home a souvenir from your visit, let's see what for sale in Galaxy's Edge.
Disney Parks chairman Bob Chapek spent a few moments with us during the media event to answer our questions about Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, why Disney built it and whether or not it might come to other Disney theme parks around the world.
To dedicate the new land, Disney CEO Bob Iger welcomed Star Wars creator George Lucas, as well as Billy Dee Williams, Mark Hamill, and Harrison Ford.

Once you have visited, we invite you to rate and review the locations within Disney's Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.
Even though the media preview is over, we’re not going to stop talking about the land. I will have a few more analysis posts coming over the weekend to keep the conversation going. The land's second attraction, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, will open later this year.
Now through June 23, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is open only to people who made reservations in advance earlier this month. The land opens to all Disneyland ticket holders on June 24. Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opens at Walt Disney World's Disney's Hollywood Studios on August 29 and no advance reservations will be necessary (or available) there.Tweet
