Shellie, Karen and I went back to Galaxy’s Edge a few days later, but this time at night. Our appointment time was from 8:00 to midnight, and it was Karen’s first time.
We were instructed to enter though Critter Country. They let us in promptly at 8:00, and the land was already filled with people from the appointment slot prior to ours. It was still not crowded. We didn’t make a bee-line to the cantina like last time, but went through the shops instead.
As the sun went down, we decided to get a photo of the Millennium Falcon, and then of the Star Wars fighter jet. The Disney Photopass photographers were there, taking excellent shots at both locations.
After killing time walking around at the shops, we decided to go on the Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. The wait time was about 20 minutes, just like our first time.
After riding Smuggler’s Run twice, we waited for the Disneyland fireworks. Disney Photopass Cast member were there to take pictures of you enjoying the show.
We ended our night with dessert and drinks at the Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo. The Batuubon is the dessert on the left with Moof Juice, while the Oi Oi Puff is the dessert on the right, with Phattro. Batuubon is a decadent chocolate cake and White Chocolate mousse, while the Oi Oi is a Raspberry cream puff with a Passion Fruit mousse, not very heavy or sweet. It was my favorite of the two. The Moof Juice is a Fruit punch with Orange and pineapple-chipotle, while the Phattro is an unsweetened iced tea with lemonade and dessert pear.
Both visits we used our entire 4 hour allotment. There’s a lot of things to see and do at Galaxy’s Edge, and I am sure once the park opens to all guests, it’ll be quite the zoo!
