Galaxy’s Edge will be opening on August 29, 2019, and Star Wars fans everywhere are counting down the days to this iconic moment! We had the privilege of visiting Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge twice before the opening this week which was absolutely incredible!

We are so grateful we were able to enjoy it before the crowds arrive next week; however, we also know we’ll be there many times after it opens because Robert is such a big Star Wars fan.
