We're back with more of Star Wars Galaxy's Edge, but this time on a coast far, far away (well, 2,501 miles) from the other Galaxy's Edge.
Excited to see how Galaxy's Edge is received in Florida, so far reviews have been overwhelmingly positive. Let's head in and see what Renée was up to on her birthday!!

Bright suns! Rising moons! Afternoon thunderstorms! The east coast Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is up and running for WDW cast member this month and we got to experience it
I hate to admit it, but where you’re seated on Smuggler’s Run does make a difference. On our first ride, we were the engineers, and weren’t impressed at all with the ride itself (the queue and entire building is phenomenal). But going on two more times as pilots was such a blast!
The Droid Depot was totally worth doing. I loved putting it together and then making it come to life. Very cool!
Really enjoyed our meal at Docking Bay 7. We got the vegetarian option, plus the chocolate cake. The cake was fine, but the garden spread was delicious!
There are still so many details I haven’t even seen yet, but I do think I spotted a Hidden Mickey on board the Millennium Falcon.
Oga’s Cantina is such a fun and well themed bar. So glad Rex made a comeback as a DJ! The drinks are quite pricey but we split all of the different beers. White Wampa Ale was the best!
I liked having no formal character meet and greets for a change. Towards the end of the evening, we were just walking around and Rey invited me to participate in a droid race!
Since the time slot we had for the preview was later in the day, we got to see the land transition into night.
Don’t know when I’ll be back yet, and I’m sure it’ll be much busier next time, but I really enjoyed my first visit to the Hollywood Studios SW:GE.
Time for a quick update from Walt Disney World where some great Halloween merchandise is now available. Just in time for the first Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party that is this week. Yes, this week.

With the first a Halloween party just a few days away (!!), all of the merchandise is beginning to appear in stores today.
I’m so excited for two and a half months of Halloween!
Does anyone care that this opened today?
Some of the Farewell IllumiNations merchandise is already on sale. $10 for the cup? Yes please!
