Disney's Plan For Galaxy's Edge Ruined Everything

As anyone who has EVER read one of my articles knows, I LOVE Disney. The company, the movies, the parks, all of it. However, with all of the park expansions and movie deals, I've been getting kind of annoyed recently. Galaxy's Edge, the new "Star Wars" land is set to open in the parks very soon. Personally, I've never seen a Star Wars movie in my life. I still want to see them, and I can't wait for the expansion to open, but I think it could have been done differently.

When Disney bought "Star Wars," it was a big deal. It's a popular thing with a HUGE fanbase, it's iconic. In my opinion, I think that Disney Co. saw this and knew that they would have to make that one of their main focuses. That's all fine and good, but now here we are a few years later and all of the good things are being tossed to the side to make room for more "Star Wars."

We lost parades, fireworks shows, certain performers, Photopass photographers in certain locations, and even more. Toy Story Land was sized down when it could have been much bigger and less rushed. There were way too many budget cuts in order to make Galaxy's Edge perfect while throwing new additions in alongside that as well.

Don't get me wrong, I'm always open to change. I love seeing what will be added next and watching the process of it being built. However, I feel like Disney always misses a lot of great opportunities or ideas that can be made into the coolest things. For example, a lot of people were saying that the Three Caballeros ride in the Mexico pavilion in Epcot could be made into a "Coco" ride. Some employees have addressed this, but never went through with it. It would have been such a cute concept and definitely would have educated people on the Mexican culture of Dia De Los Muertos.

I know that making Galaxy's Edge as stupendous as it can be isn't only for entertainment but marketing as well. I'm sure that on opening day, they will have to stop letting people into the park due to the crowd levels. That means loads of money and everyone gets to see the new things.

Whenever something new and anticipated opens up in the parks, it takes well over a year for the crowds to fully die down, and even then they're still pretty large. Pandora has been open for about two or three years I believe, and the rides can still have over 100-minute waits on a good day. Being that "Star Wars" is a way bigger franchise, I can only imagine how intense the wait for those things are going to be.

I'm glad that Disney is taking such an iconic and legendary thing and honoring it in such a big way, but I just wish they wouldn't have forgotten about the other things that reside in the parks.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
