Disney’s Galaxy’s Edge is a remarkable place, designed from top to bottom to bring the world of Star Wars to life. Even the cast members who work there are in on the action, role-playing as residents of the planet Batuu.
The highlight of my first trip to Disney Parks’ largest-ever themed land was a visit to Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities, a combination souvenir shop and Star Wars museum. I was expecting a sort of TGI Friday’s experience, with ephemera bolted haphazardly to the walls. But what I found inside was so much more elaborate and thoughtful than I could have possibly imagined.
