The Millennium Falcon Welcomes Its 1 Millionth Rider at Galaxy’s Edge
Over the past few weeks, the Disney sphere has been abuzz with the news that Disneyland Park attendance has been down over the Summer even with the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. However, if this delightful bit of Disney news is anything to go by the new Star Wars-themed land at Disneyland Resort has said a TON of guests into orbit! That’s right! Disney has just announced that earlier this week Disneyland welcomed its one-millionth guest to Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run!
Disney cast members welcomed the Ridgeway family from Ocean Springs, Mississippi. Johnathan Ridgeway (age 8) climbed aboard the “fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy” along with his mom Becky, dad Roger and his brother Logan (age 4.)
The family had an opportunity to spend time in the main hold of the ship as well as the lounge. Here they sat at the famous Dejarik table where they were surprised by a very special visit from Chewbacca. Then Jonathon settled into the cock-pit to co-pilot the Millennium Falcon.
Afterwards, the family was treated to some blue and green milk for a celebratory toast. Check out this incredible video capture the Ridgeway family’s incredible Galaxy’s Edge experience!
