A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…
We’re quickly approaching the opening date for the new Star Wars Trading Post location in Downtown Disney. The Star Wars Trading Post will open on February 19th, and guests will be able to explore the hidden Resistance jungle base in a galaxy far, far away.
Unlike Galaxy’s Edge, the jungle base storyline will be placed outside of the limits of the Star Wars timeline, so you’ll be able to buy merchandise from all different Star Wars eras! As Star Wars fans ourselves, we can’t wait to visit this place! The new location of the base is actually the former home of Rainforest Cafe at Downtown Disney. So, how exactly did Disney transform the rainforest into a jungle from another galaxy?
While most guests will get the chance to visit it on February 19th, Disneyland Legacy Passholders can preview this spot a few days early. And now, reservations for this special Passholder preview are available!
A LOT happened at Walt Disney World in 2020!
The biggie was obviously the parks shut down due to the pandemic and then reopened with several new health and safety measures in place. Besides these big changes, we also had several things going on in the parks that were already planned. Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway opened up, we went through four EPCOT festivals, and several major projects continued construction. Oh yeah, we got a PINK Cinderella Castle, too! One of Disney’s most ambitious projects was supposed to hit a BIG milestone last year and it didn’t, which leaves us with the question — what’s going on?

Here’s a face mask pro-tip for your next visit to the Disney Parks — if you have long hair, wear it up!
We’ve noticed that throwing our hair up in a ponytail has helped us reduce the number of tangles we come home with and it’s helped us stay cool on particularly warm days park hopping! And, instead of packing any ol’ hair tie with you for the day, add some subtle Disney style to your look with these Disney scrunchies released online by BoxLunch!
