Flying the Millennium Falcon at Disney’s Star Wars land is fun but misses the ‘wow’ factor

For anyone who has ever dreamed of piloting the Millennium Falcon, the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy, here are two things to know about the new ride at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland.

First, the Falcon is a finicky ship, crashing into to this and colliding with that when not dodging incoming fire. Second, it’s impossible to destroy, no matter the grave shortcomings of the pilots.

The iconic ship is the heart of Disneyland’s new Star Wars land, as well as the star of Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run — the only ride at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge until the formidable Rise of the Resistance opens later this year.

Don’t confuse this motion-based ride with the older Star Tours, where riders watch passively as their craft bumps and turns in sync with the film.
