PHOTOS, VIDEO: Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run Enters Hyperspace Once Again With Backstage Queue and No Pre-show at Disneyland

Disneyland Park is open once again, and so is Hondo Ohnaka’s operation. Ohnaka needs crews to pilot the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy: the Millennium Falcon. We gladly accepted the mission. Let’s take a look at Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run.

Like other attractions at Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure, attraction queues are mostly outside. California may lift this and other restrictions as soon as June 15.
