Disney Parks To Open 'Star Wars Land' In The Upcoming Year

There are few Disney franchises as iconic and beloved as the Star Wars Universe. The unforgettable characters, iconic movies, and exciting rides have made these movies popular with people of all ages. With millions of fans across the world, many have wondered when the entertainment conglomerate would incorporate Star Wars into their Disney parks more.

Well, it's finally here! Recently, Disney has announced they plan to open Star Wars land Galaxy's Edge next year, in both Disneyland Park in Anaheim and Disney World Park in Orlando. Fans are pumped and for good reason.

In addition to new rides and an entire landscape designed after the Star Wars Universe, the Park is going to also have an immersive Star Wars Hotel, complete with fine dining and designed to look like a high-class Starship.

Two of the rides expected to be in the new addition to Disney Parks were announced at a recent event at Walt Disney World Resort. The first attraction was revealed to be the "Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run," a ride in which riders are able to embark on an adventure on the infamous Millennium Falcon with Han Solo and Chewbacca. According to sources, guests are able to work as one of the three different roles on the ship, completing a secret mission with the characters.

The second attraction was announced as "Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance." This ride takes aim at the more modern installments of the Star Wars franchise. The ride places guests in the middle of a battle between the Resistance fighters and the First Order. The high stakes circumstances are sure to thrill riders!

As if to make things even better, the Star Wars land attractions will have theme music and songs orchestrated by the original Star Wars composer, John Williams. The work of this iconic artist seems to be the cherry on top of an already perfect sundae! The park itself is expected to cover over 14 acres at each location, so guests can expect there to be plenty of new rides to experience.

Among the rides, music, and luxury hotel, the park is going to host opportunities for guests to battle enemies such as the Sith, stormtroopers, droids, and First Order operatives, much like guests get to do in Disneyland's "Tomorrowland." Much to the joy of older guests, the park will feature Oga's Cantina, the first such location to sell alcoholic drinks in Disneyland Parks. All of these things and more are designed to indulge visitors into a completely immersive experience at the Park.

For a long time, Disneyland has featured Star Wars themed attractions and rides in the its "Tomorrowland," but now with Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opening soon, both Disney-lovers and Star Wars fans have something incredible to look forward to in the next year!

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.

Launched by Iranian journalist Masih Alinejad in 2014, My Stealthy Freedom is a commendable campaign that shows women going against the strict hijab restrictions in Iran. This movement has recently gained a lot of momentum on their Facebook page and is currently even gaining support from tourists in Iran. Ms. Alinejad shares photos of men in hijabs and women inside Iran who have taken part in a moment of 'stealthy freedom' by removing their hijabs to the outside world.

10 Reasons Coffee Is The Best In Honor Of National Coffee Day

National Coffee Day falls on September 29, a fact that I don't think I'll ever forget, even though I didn't even know it was a "holiday" until just recently. Maybe that's because my love for coffee is still a recent development, or maybe I just don't keep up enough with the times, but either way, I can't think of any better time to recount why we all probably love it so much.
