When I first heard the news that a Star Wars land was coming to the Disney Parks, my heart was filled with geeky joy. As a long time fan of the Star Wars Universe, a wish began to take root that the agency would receive an invitation to the media event. Little did I know that my dream would become reality!
Exclusive media events are often held in the days prior to a new land opening and we've seen them recently for Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge in Disneyland (this May) as well as Toy Story Land and Pandora-The World of Avatar. These invitations are issued to members of the media (from blog to prime time) and a limited number of travel agencies. Last month, I received my "golden ticket" invitation email for the event at Walt Disney World Resort.
I'll be spending some time in Batuu exploring as well as attending a presentation and the dedication ceremony in the land! Be sure to follow along on my journey (Aug 26-29) on the agency Facebook page! And I'll be posting here after I return home. Join me as I travel to a galaxy far, far away.
