Posted: Februar 14, 2019

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will be opening very soon at two different Disney Parks, but don't actually expect to hear much about it from Disney. The fact of the matter is that everybody already knows that Galaxy's Edge is coming and the company knows that the minute an official opening date is announced, everybody will know that too, so Disney won't need to spend a lot of money promoting the fact.

Dancing through Disneyland Park? You're as likely to see a character, or even a character-filled guest, shimmying down Main Street as you are people munching on churros and dill pickles.

What, though, of a "family-fun dance party," one that can be found "throughout the park,"

Toddlers and preschoolers can be challenging travel companions, but travel destinations like Disneyland are made for them.

Consequently, I've been to Disneyland more than a dozen times with at least one toddler or preschooler in my traveling family. I've
