After taking a closer look at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge––coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida and Disneyland park in California in 2019––at D23 Expo, we’ve been anxiously awaiting more updates on the exciting project. Luckily for us, our friends at the Disney Parks Blog just shared an awesome milestone from the construction site at Disneyland park––the topping out of the tallest peak in the 14-acre land. Standing at 130 feet tall, the steel that makes up the highest point in the new land was put in place yesterday as the design and construction teams from celebrated the tradition.
Before the beam was put into place, Disneyland Resort cast members were invited to take part in another part of this tradition, by signing the steel beam. Some of these cast members will soon take on roles to help bring the land’s two signature attractions to life.
We’re that much closer to a galaxy far, far away! Stay tuned to D23 for more updates.
