richmond side of the bridge. of course our typical delays are building there for that emergency road repair, but since it's friday, since a lot of folks only seem to go into the office four days a week, it's not as bad as a monday through thursday commute. mass transit looking great, 50 b.a.r.t. trains in service. ace 1, 3, and 5 on time. no delays for ac transit. >> nothing like friday work from home day. happening today, are you ready for an epic adventure in a galaxy far, far away? the waiting is finally over. star wars galaxy's edge opens this morning at disneyland. it is the most anticipated new expansion and the largest in disneyland history. so i was one of the first to go inside to get a sneak peek, and this is me on the big attraction open right now, the millennium falcon smugglers run. you do pilot the fastest junk in the galaxy and i loved it. it is the most fun i've ever had on a ride. >> that is saying something. >> i love me some rides.

park pretty soon. those who do have be able to go star wars galaxy's edge around 8:00 this morning. once again for those of you planning to come down here to anaheim to check out the new expansion to the disneyland park, you need to have a reservation. they sold out online in about two hours a couple months ago. you can still get one by staying at a disneyland hotel, there are three of them. rooms are available but very pricey, cheapest rates at $412. live in anaheim, abc 7 news. >> reggie, of course, you are just coming back and we loved watching your reports on social and here on the air. what was the most surprising thing about your time there? >> the most surprising thing, i was surprised that i loved it more than i thought i was going to. everyone knows i'm a huge disney fan. >> sure. >> i'm not necessarily a "star wars" fan boy. i like it but am not into the
