Batuu Peeking Through

In just two weeks, the most widely anticipated expansion in Disneyland (and arguably Disney park) history arrives.  Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will open to a limited, reservation-only audience on Friday, May 31, and remain reservation-only until Monday, June 24, when it will be open to all guests.  Over the past two-plus years, guests have been able to see glimpses of Batuu's Black Spire Outpost spring up.  Its towering, petrified tree towers and dramatic rockwork have enticed fans over this time, and as we near the finish line, I wanted to post what can effectively be considered to be finished views from within the park of this new land "far far away."  The forced perspective is pretty fantastic (though there are a few holes that betray the illusion that I'll detail in a future post), and the receding landscape of the Frontierland and Rivers of America horizon make for a pretty epic scene.

Oh, and to those braving the crowds once "Star Wars Land" opens? May the Force be with you.

The skyline of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge beckons beyond the Rivers of America.

Batuu's trademark spires look awfully impressive!

They've visible all along the riverfront.

The Disneyland Railroad chugs by in front of this scene of two timelines.

The view from atop Tarzan's Treehouse is great too.  The Bryce Canyon-inspired Big Thunder Mountain spires juxtapose wonderfully against Batuu's rock spires.

Soon, all these years of hard work by countless individuals will be unveiled for the public to enjoy.
