You can live inside your own Star Wars story starting this Friday at Disneyland when the new Galaxy’s Edge park opens to the public. But CNET’s Vanessa Hand Orellana got a sneak piece this week during Media Day. Her TL;DR review: Galaxy’s Edge will make every fan’s dream come true. We’ve added in some of her impressions below, but be sure to check out her full Star Wars land review for more in-depth opinions.

Through June 23, a Disneyland park ticket alone won’t get you in — guests will need to make a reservation to access the Star Wars section of the park. Unfortunately, luxury replicas direct reservations are now sold out, but guests staying at one of the three Disneyland Resort hotels during June can still potentially get a reservation to access Galaxy’s Edge. But starting June 24, there’s no reservation needed, just a regular park ticket.

Stretching across 14 acres, this expansion to the current parks in Florida (opening at the end of August) and California will include a cantina serving alcoholic drinks, multiple shops and food stops, and two rides.
