The realistic-looking lightsabers will set them back $158. That’s a lot of lawn mowing money. And Disney won’t take galactic credits. Only credit cards or cold hard cash. The price of the the hilt, or handle, will be around $109 while the cost of the blade will be $49 depending on the style of lightsaber purchased, according to the Associated Press. Disneyland officials said lightsaber prices are still being finalized for Galaxy’s Edge. The $158 lightsaber price tag would be costlier than a $149 single-day ticket at the Anaheim theme park on the busiest “peak” day. And considerably more expensive than the $20 plastic toy … [Read more...] about Want a Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge lightsaber from Disneyland? Be prepared to pay
6 minutes ago Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will have everything you'd ever want from a theme park, exciting attractions, delicious food, beautiful scenery and killer merch. It will also have everything you'd ever want from actually being inside a Star Wars movie. Aliens, droids, the Millennium Falcon, blue milk, and of course, lightsabers. We already knew that the new land would let you build your own lightsaber, but new details about exactly how it works will make the experience even cooler than we thought, because the shop is actually designed to be a secret. You see, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge isn't really a theme park land. It's actually the alien planet of Batuu. While the Resistance has a stronghold on Batuu, the First Order has also taken up residence, and, as you might guess, the First Order doesn't take kindly to somebody selling lightsabers. This is why the shop that sells the Jedi device is, according to the sign, actually Savi & Son Salvage. At least, that's what the … [Read more...] about Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Will Have A Secret Shop For Building Lightsabers

By Steve Scauzillo | [email protected] | San Gabriel Valley TribunePUBLISHED: February 18, 2019 at 8:00 am | UPDATED: February 18, 2019 at 2:12 pm In 1959, Walt Disney watched his monorail encircle Disneyland in Anaheim, a train from the next century bringing park guests, appropriately enough, into Tomorrowland. Disney figured transportation planners would take his monorail concept — a sleek, elevated, electric-powered train straddling a single beam — and replicate it inside real cities. “He wanted to build a whole city with monorails and people-movers,” said David Koenig, author of several books on Disney’s legacy. “He was convinced everyone was going to build monorails all over the world.” Instead, California in the 1950s and ’60s built roads and freeways. But in the last 30 years, Los Angeles awoke to the potential of hard-rail subways and light-rail trains as a way to unclog jammed freeways. Now the transit world is … [Read more...] about From Disneyland to China, the monorail is riding a new high. But would it work in LA?
