It feels so real: The force is strong at Disneyland’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

ANAHEIM, California — The bartender leaned over the glowing counter, his words barely audible over the techno beat that filled the cantina.

“This Resistance is real,” he countered. “I hear they’re in a camp on the outskirts of the village. They’re enlisting volunteers for their cause.”
