Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge

(Copy courtesy of DisneyCopyright.com)

For the first time ever, there’s a place where you can live your very own Star Wars™ story. A place where you can fly the galaxy’s most legendary ship, the Millennium Falcon. A place where you’ll find yourself caught in a battle between the First Order and the Resistance. With a whole new land, you can finally live your adventure in a galaxy far, far away. Welcome to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, now open at Walt Disney World® Resort and Disneyland in California.


Set your coordinates for the edge of the galaxy to the planet Batuu where you’ll be immersed in the alluring offerings of a mysterious outpost and thriving port that’s a haven for scoundrels, rogues and smugglers. Throughout its markets, around corners and through back alleys, you can encounter strange creatures and alien languages. Touch ancient antiquities from across the galaxy. You can build your own droids and even construct a custom lightsaberfor your adventures ahead. Drop by the cantina to sample the local beverages and curious concoctions. Whether it’s taking in the sounds of the otherworldly music, the fragrance of exotic cuisine or the sights of things never before seen, this marketplace summons your senses to life like never before.


Ever flown a starship before? No matter. On Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, you’ll board the Millennium Falcon, where legends have been made and new ones are about to be created. You and your crew will answer the call to be part of a covert mission. And whether you’re a pilot, engineer or gunner, every role is crucial as you take control of the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy. The engines rumble as the Falcon blasts off as you enter hyperspace and into the adventure you’ve always dreamed of. Along the way you’ll face excitement around every turn and sway, plus the looming threat of the First Order—who will forever label you as an enemy. Get ready to punch it!


On Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, opening December 5, 2019, steady your nerves and summon your resolve because you and other Resistance recruits have boarded a transport that has been captured by a Star Destroyer. Keep your head down. In an instant, you’ll be caught in blaster fire from stormtroopers surrounding you. And if that’s not enough, you’ll discover how huge the excitement can get when you round a corner and discover a towering AT-AT—with its lasers pointed…Right. At. You. But then, what’s that? In the heat of it all, you’ll feel an unmistakable presence in the air as a sudden red glow cuts the darkness and the crackle of a lightsaber announces an inevitable showdown with Kylo Ren himself.


So, raise a glass of Blue Milk. Because soon the time will come to live your adventure in a galaxy far, far away at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.



Purchase required. Reservations may be required.

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance attraction opens December 5, 2019.



What you need to know about Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge:

(Information complied by Vacationwiser.com using material provided by Disneytravelagents.com)


Opened in Disneyland in May 2019 and Walt Disney World Hollywood Studios on August 29, 2019.


A separate “land” within each park but included in your admission to the park (Disneyland Park in California and Disney Hollywood Studios in Orlando).  One day tickets to any single Disney park start at $200 (to finance through Vacationwiser.com).  The more days you buy the cheaper the price per day.


Encompasses 14 acres at Hollywood Studios making it the single biggest “land” in Disney parks


A totally immersive and interactive attractive with a “lack of visual intrusions”, meaning you don’t see any evidence of another park while in this area. As far as you know, you are on the planet Batuu.


The story takes places at the Black Spire Outpost -- a new storyline in the Star Wars saga.  For a heads up check out the prequel book “Black Spire” by Delilah S. Dawson.  After devasting losses at the hands of the First Order, General Leia Organa has dispatched her agents across the galaxy in search of allies, sanctuary, and firepower—and her top spy, Vi Moradi, may have just found all three, on a secluded world at the galaxy’s edge.  Batuu, a planet of lush forests, precarious mountains, and towering petrified trees, is on the furthest point of the galactic map, the last settled world before the mysterious expanse of Wild Space.  it is populated by rogues, smugglers and adventurers, many of whom are more than happy to engage you in conversation and reveal their own backstory.


The main attraction is Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run.  A second attraction, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, will open at Disneyworld on December 5 and Disneyland on January 17, 2020.   Another highlight is Savi’s Workshop where you build your own customized lightsaber.  Reservations are required and can be made up to 180 days before your visit.  But be prepared to leave a credit card deposit of $199 plus tax for each lightsaber you want to build. Each builder can bring along one guest to observe.  Try out your engineering skills by building your own droid at Droid Depot.  Again, reservations are required, and the deposit is $99 plus tax.  Both Savi’s Workshop and Droid Depot will have a limited number of same day appointments.


Everything within Black Spire Outpost fits into the Star Wars theme and food and beverage options are no different.  Oga’s Cantina is the bar you remember from the Star Wars movies where many of the worst characters of the galaxy hide out from the authorities. Reservations are needed and space is limited.  Sample exotic concoctions for young and old, enjoy light snacks or just relax to the “bold musical entertainment” courtesy of droid DJ-R-3X, a former Starspeeder 3000 pilot.


Head over to the Milk Stand for a “frosty confection” that is a favorite of Luke Skywalker.  Try the blue milk from Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope, or the green milk from Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi.


For a more substantial meal you want to visit Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo operated by Chef Strono “Cookie” Tuggs.  For a full menu click on the link below.  I can’t wait to try the Smoked Kaadu Ribs or the Fried Endorian Tip-Yip (I am told it tastes a lot like chicken}.  All made with the freshest ingredients flown in daily from across the galaxy.



Sink your teeth into a savory grilled sausage and roasted pork wrap at Ronto’s Roasters.  Or, check out Kat Saka’s Kettle where the specialty is a sweet, savory snack made from popcorn.


What kind of outpost would Black Spire be without an interesting array of local merchandise?  At

Dok-Ondars Den of Antiquities you will find a rotating collection of unique items such as jewelry, ancient tools, rare kyber crystals, statues, even famous lightsabers.  Resistance Supply is a makeshift post where you can join the battle to defeat the First Order.  Exotic creatures and critters from around the galaxy are the attractions at the Creature Stall.  Toydarian Toymaker features all manner of artisanal toys, games, playthings and collectibles “handmade” in Black Spire Outpost.  If you want to fit in with the locals, head over to Black Spire Outfitters for some casual Batuu attire.  Jewels of Bith has local goods and other trinkets.


A must for all attendees is the Stars Wars Datapad.  All you need is to download the Play Disney Parks app to interact with droids, decipher Aurebesh, or, even, thwart the First Order.
