Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is a themed land at Disneyland and the first Star Wars-themed land in the parks.
Galaxy's Edge is located to the north of Frontierland, where Big Thunder Ranch and backstage areas were located. As a result of the expansion, Disney purchased nearby properties to relocate the office and warehouse space that was once on the land.
The construction of Galaxy's Edge resulted in a reconfigured route for the Disneyland Railroad and Rivers of America. A first look at how these changes would impact the park were revealed in January 2016, when concept art was released depicting the northern bank of the river after construction is completed.
While sharing the same attractions and overall layout, the Disneyland version of Galaxy's Edge differs from its Disney's Hollywood Studios version in several ways, often subtle.
Disneyland's Galaxy's Edge is accessible from three different entrances: A path from Critter Country leading into the Resistance's forest, a tunnel across from Big Thunder Mountain leading into the middle of Black Spire Outpost towards Droid Depot, and a path closer to the Fantasyland/Frontierland border leading to the First Order's headquarters.
The paint schemes throughout the Disneyland version are much more tan and neutrally colored in contrast to a more saturated color scheme employed at Hollywood Studios.
For a viewpoint from the Smugglers Run queue, one of the spires is painted a bright orange to compliment a view of the spire peak of Big Thunder Mountain.
The Resistance's forest base path is narrower then Florida, with the X-Wing and A-Wings being placed next to each other while Hollywood Studios has them parked on different sides of the path.
