LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Last month Disney World opened its doors to a brand-new, immersive park experience: Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. Here, visitors can realize their "Star Wars" fantasies over 14 acres of property.

The new land, which opened on Aug. 29 in Disney's Hollywood Studios in Florida, is perhaps Disney's most ambitious park expansion thus far. It is also identical to the "Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge" that opened four months ago (May 2019) at Disneyland in Anaheim, California.

It's the perfect destination for travelers seeking to immerse themselves in everything "Star Wars."
