ANAHEIM, Calif. (WLOX) - One very lucky South Mississippi family got the opportunity of a lifetime during a trip to Disneyland.

One member of the Ridgeway family of Ocean Springs became the one-millionth rider on the Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run earlier this week.

Jonathan Ridgeway, 8, climbed aboard the “fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy” along with mom Becky, dad Roger and brother Logan, 4.

As a treat, the family got to meet Chewbacca and enjoyed a celebratory toast with blue and green milk.

Since opening on May 31, visitors to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland park have had the opportunity to step inside the largest single-themed land in Disney Parks history.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge also opened at Walt Disney World Resort in August of this year.
