Take a look inside Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge at Disney World and Disneyland during the park’s shutdown amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Disneyland and Disney World are giving fans a look inside Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge during the parks’ shut down.
The parks are closed until further notice amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic with minimal essential staff operating inside the parks. Disneyland and Disney World’s social media teams showed what it looks like without guests and the group of workers keeping the parks functioning.
Disney Parks first shared a photo of Walt Disney World Resort’s president, Josh D’Amaro, holding a blue lightsaber while standing just outside the Rise of The Resistance queue.
Disney Parks then shared a photo of the essential workers in Disneyland while they posed in front of the Millenium Falcon, while standing six feet apart from one another and donning face masks.
The Disney Parks Twitter account posted photos of Galaxy’s Edge without any inhabitants on Batuu.
A security guard named Emilio also gave fans a behind the scenes look at what the park looks like without any visitors during the shutdown. He even took a selfie with a stormtrooper and admitted that he’s a huge Star Wars fan, himself.
Finally, the parks shared a ride-through point of view video of Rise of The Resistance while giving interesting factoids about the creation of the ride.
Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios, where Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge resides, recently celebrated the park’s 31st anniversary on May 1, 2020. To commemorate the occasion, Josh turned on the speakers in the park for a moment to play the park’s theme music that typically plays while guests roam the park.
It’s been interesting to see inside the parks and what they look like without fans roaming around and enjoying the sights.
There’s no word on when the parks will re-open as states are waiting for safer conditions to do . In the meantime, we get a little peek behind the curtain to see just what is going on.
