Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge

Whether you keep up with Disneyland news or not, I'm sure everyone has heard of the new Star Wars: Galaxy Edge land that has opened up! Before the land opened up to the public, access was granted through a reservation system, and luckily for Ian and I we scored reservations!

With the new expansion, I have to say the park feels so much bigger now. The land itself is pretty big with lots of open space which I loved. I am not the biggest Star Wars fan, but I have heard from fans that the land is extremely detail-orientated and done well.

Some highlights:

Blue and green milk: I have heard so many mixed opinions on this. I personally would not order these again. They're vegan drinks formulated with rice milk, and have a slight frothy texture which I am not a fan of. The blue tasted more sweet, meanwhile the green had a more earthy taste.

Smuggler's Run: I'm all about the attractions so I was most excited about this! On Smuggler's Run, you board in groups of 6. There are pilots, gunners, and engineers. Pilots get to fly the Millennium Falcon, and get to control either left and right or up and down. Gunners fire missiles when commanded. Engineers fix our engine throughout our flight by pressing flashing lights. After experiencing all three of these roles, pilot is most definitely my favorite. I feel that your fight crew could also effect your experience. When we had crews that were super energetic and loud, I felt like the ride was way more fun compared to crews that were a little more on the quiet side.

Ronto Roasters: First off, the aesthetic here is super cool. We tried the Ronto Wrap which is pork, sausage, and tangy slaw wrapped in pita. I honestly think this is one of my favorite snacks through the entire park, I would highly recommend it. We also had the spicy turkey jerky which is available in either sweet or spicy, and I thought this was great for a snack. I would not recommend saving any for the next day, because in my experience it got really hard. We also tried Meiloorun Juice, which is a mix of aqua frescas pineapple, lemonade with blueberry, white cranberry juice, lemon juice, and desert pear. It tasted as amazing as it sounds and was a perfect refresher for the hot day.

There is still a ton more we have yet to experience such as the Droid Depot, Oga's Cantina, and more. Overall, we spent our reservation days getting a feel for the land and exploring every corner and merch stand. I had so much fun visiting Batuu, and would say it is DEFINITELY worth checking out for any Star Wars fan.

World Of Color @ DCA

As Disney passholders, I feel that watching World of Color at least once is a part of the Disney experience! Luckily for me, my boyfriend recently surprised me with a dining package at Wine Country Trattoria :)

We started the night having dinner underneath the stars, and then immediately headed to our preferred viewing area. The huge perk of booking a World of Color dining package is that there is no need to worry about getting a fast pass, which can run out quickly in the day, especially on weekends.

Our view was great, and most importantly the show was so worth it. If you have any type of appreciation for Disney movies and music, the show is bound to leave you smiling ear to ear. Personally, my favorite part was The Little Mermaid and Pocahontas. I highly recommend viewing the show at least once!
