Melinda’s Brew: Orlando-Bound For The Last Jedi

Melinda's Brew

Two paths. Two possibilities present themselves, each with the promise of immeasurable delights. One path steeped in tradition; one a new and exciting undertaking. Which to choose? Which to choose?

A bit earlier this month, Coffee With Kenobi put forth the inviting temptation to accompany our very own media specialist, Lisa D., to Disney World in Orlando, Florida for the opening showing of Star Wars: The Last Jedi!

Highlights from Disney’s Media Event for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Galaxy’s Edge, and Galactic Nights

Earlier this month, I was fortunate enough to be invited by Disney to the premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi at Walt Disney World. Events also included attending a panel discussion for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, and the Galactic Nights spectacular held on December 16. I was able to share many of my experiences across Coffee With Kenobi‘s social media accounts, and I hope they were enjoyable! I know I had an amazing time — especially since it was my first time at Disney World! To have my first trip to the Happiest Place on Earth revolve around a new Star Wars movie was pure icing.

Since my postings were spread around a bit, I figured I would gather them up into this one master post for easier access. If you missed out on anything, it should be found here. Of course, nothing beats actually being there, but I hope you get a sense of what a marvelous time can be had when Disney meets Star Wars!
