Len Testa & Jim Hill talk with Carlye Wisel of “Travel & Leisure” magazine. Ms. Wisel shares what she learned about “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” while participating in that three day-long media event that Disney Parks & Resorts held this past weekend


Over the course of this episode, listeners will learn about:

How Imagineers who are parents with small children have influenced the design of the queue space within “Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance” attraction

How it would be very smart if the folks who handle the retail end of things at Disney Parks & Resorts could have a recording of the songs that RX-24 spins at Oga’s Cantina available for purchase on the day that “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” opens to the public

How making comparisons between “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” and “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter” isn’t really fair as of this moment (because one of those things is still a construction site)

The cinematic tricks & techniques that WDI has used when it comes to positioning iconic Star Wars items like the Millennium so that their reveals will then have the maximum impact

How – between the Droid Deport and Salvi & Son Salvage – Star Wars fans will ending their visit to Black Spire Outpost with big smiles and empty wallets
