Guests will also encounter the Mandalorian and Grogu, meeting Guests at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland Park when they land in mid-November.
Guests will also see the long-awaited return of the Magic Happens parade, which was only performed for a few days before Disneyland, unfortunately, had to shut down due to the pandemic. And as if that wasn’t enough, next year, Guests will be able to experience two all-new nighttime spectaculars as part of the Disney 100 Platinum Celebration and meet Mickey and Minnie Mouse flaunting new outfits for the occasion.
