We take a deep dive into the new "Star Wars Land" at Disneyland as Jimmy Mac has returned from STAR WARS: GALAXY'S EDGE with a full report. From Oga's Cantina to Savi's Workshop to the cockpit of The Millennium Falcon, we cover it all with Billy Mac sitting in. What about the much-reported attendance numbers at the park? We get Jimmy's perspective on the crowds and wait times, along with in-depth reviews of the drinks, food, merch, sites, sounds and overall vibe. Plus, we follow up on our ongoing investigation: Is the STAR TOURS ride still featuring Lucas-Era content? All this plus Hyperspace Mountain and Swank on a beach!
