Blastoff Minus Two Hours!
We are back at Downtown Disney about to receive our last meal should the adventure to the Galaxy's Edge be more dangerous than expected...and it may be! We await the Duda's who we will meet at the Star Wars Meeting point in the old Carousel of Progress in Tomorrow Land.
Chilaquiles looked pretty good!
Did You Know? - Typically, corn tortillas cut in quarters and lightly fried are the basis of the dish. Green or red salsa or mole is poured over the crisp tortilla triangles. The mixture is simmered until the tortilla starts softening. Pulled chicken is sometimes added to the mix. It is commonly garnished with crema, crumbled queso fresco, raw onion rings and avocado slices. Chilaquiles can be served with refried beans, eggs (scrambled or fried), beef and guacamole as side dish.
Paul went for the "Breakfast Sandwich" which was OUTSTANDING!
I can't believe I ate half of that whole thing!"
We got a snapshot before departing for Disneyland proper
The kids parked in the structure and they could see the construction underway. This this new feature, one can walk form the parking structure into Downtown Disney without having to go to ground level and cross the street...straight shot from structure to the old ESPN Zone.
Working hard... Should be done by July!
Easier to get to Downtown Disney
The old fashioned mode of transportation was thought to be fast!
We stopped by the Lost & Found again... No Bueno!
The baby ducks are all over the place
Did You Know? - Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is a themed area inspired by the Star Wars universe, located within Disneyland Park at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, and forthcoming at Disney's Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. The area encompasses 14 acres (5.7 ha) at each park. Set between the films The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker, Galaxy's Edge takes place within the village of Black Spire Outpost, on the wild frontier planet of Batuu, and features several attractions, shops, restaurants, and entertainment offerings.
The lands were announced on August 15, 2015 and construction at both parks began on April 14, 2016. The Disneyland version opened on May 31, 2019.
We transition from Frontier Land to the Galaxy's Edge easily ...
We are now on Batuu a remote frontier outpost and old trading port
We have arrived at the Edge!
Did You Know? - The development team drew inspiration from real-world locations, including Istanbul, Morocco, and Jerusalem, and traveled there to study the architecture, culture, and weather.
Bob was fascinated at the flowers...Kinda look like a Bottle Brush Plant
One is a Boy and one is a Girl?
Bob meets R2D2
Did You Know? - R2-D2, or Artoo-Detoo, is a fictional robot character in the Star Wars franchise created by George Lucas. A small astromech droid, R2-D2 is a major character and appears in nine out of the ten Star Wars films to date. Throughout the course of the films, R2 is a friend to C-3PO, Padmé Amidala, Anakin Skywalker, Leia Organa, Luke Skywalker, and Obi-Wan Kenobi in various points in the saga.
The name derives from when Lucas was making one of his earlier films, American Graffiti. Sound editor Walter Murch states that he is responsible for the utterance which sparked the name for the droid. Murch asked for Reel 2, Dialog Track 2, in the abbreviated form "R-2-D-2". Lucas, who was in the room and had dozed off while working on the script for Star Wars, momentarily woke when he heard the request and, after asking for clarification, stated that it was a "great name" before going back to writing his script.
The Falcon looks pretty good from this vantage point!
Did You Know? - The sound of the ship traveling through hyperspace comes from two tracks of the engine noise of a McDonnell Douglas DC-9, with one track slightly out of synchronization with the other to introduce a phasing effect. To this, sound designer Ben Burtt added the hum of the cooling fans on the motion-control rig at Industrial Light & Magic (ILM).
It's flown a few miles!
Time to go for a ride!
Where did they find all this stuff?
We made it to level two...so we can enter the Falcon without a ladder!
