Aerial Footage Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge

While Walt Disney World moves ahead with its phased reopening of the theme parks, the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, still sits with Disneyland and Disney California Adventure closed. But that has not stopped ambitious photographers from taking to the skies and catching a glimpse of the Happiest Place on Earth in its current slumber.

This time, the Twitter User @bioreconstruct has shared aerial photos of Black Spire Outpost at Disneyland’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

While one can simply look at this as being another picture of a theme park taken from a plane, helicopter, or drone, what we have here is the same view Poe Dameron would have coming to land in his X-Wing.

Imagine coming out of lightspeed, descending through the clouds, and seeing the Black Spire Outpost and the entirety of Disneyland open up to you as you try to negotiate permission to land.

Coming around for your approach, you get a glimpse of Sleeping Beauty Castle and the landmarks of neighboring Frontierland, Fantasyland, and Tomorrowland.

As you approach again from the west, you first fly over the newest attraction, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, and can see a fellow X-Wing already parked below.

Stuck in a holding pattern, you can see the Millennium Falcon parked outside Millennium Falcon Smuggler’s Run, Oga’s Cantina, Dok Ondar’s Den of Antiquities, Ronto Roasters, and Savi’s Workshop where Guests can build their own lightsabers. You can also get a glimpse of the First Order Tie Fighter parked off to the left next to the First Order Cargo shop.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and the rest of Disneyland park was originally scheduled to reopen in Mid-July along with Disney California Adventure park, and resort hotels, in time to celebrate Disneyland’s 65th Anniversary on July 17. However, that reopening has been delayed with no new reopening date announced. Downtown Disney District, however, was able to reopen on July 9.
