When you return to Disney again and again, you begin to understand that the people who operate the Vacation Kingdom on a day-to-day basis aren’t a mysteriously friendly alien race, but rather, passionate people who are motivated by a desire to make your vacation that much more special.

Rave reviews are already pouring in for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. There’s no doubt that this new land at Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios is going to be a huge success, and the future looks very bright for the presence of that galaxy far, far away in Disney parks.

We already know quite a bit about what is coming in phases two and three for Galaxy’s Edge, starting with the opening of the highly-anticipated attraction, Rise of the Resistance. Other upcoming arrivals will include a sit-down restaurant which could take character dining in exciting new directions, as well as the opening of a Star Wars role-playing experience set in a themed resort.

We’ve even already seen hinted references to the Old Republic in some of the merchandise available in Dok Ondar’s Den of Antiquities—significant considering rumors that a Knights of the Old Republic film or TV series is in the works. There are just so many possibilities for how Galaxy’s Edge could expand in the future.

Time for a bit of shameless speculation. Where do you want to see Galaxy’s Edge go next once the phases we know about are complete? Here are a few ideas to ponder…
