Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is Now Open at Walt Disney World!


The highly-anticipated Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens today at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World! This land brings guests into the new but familiar Black Spire Outpost for encounters with heroes, villains, droids, and outlaws. Here’s what to expect at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge!

Attractions

Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run

Why is the Millennium Falcon on Batuu? Apparently Hondo Ohnaka has it here for safekeeping after the events of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and it’s the perfect vessel for the mission guests will embark on. Your job is to complete the mission with as much cargo intact as possible. Become a pilot, gunner, or engineer to get the job done, and see how you fare piloting the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy.

Minimum height is 38 inches. Please note that FastPass is not available.

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance

*Opens December 5, 2019* Guests enter the Resistance side in a battle against the First Order that will take guests into the hangar of a Star Destroyer. Minimum height is 40 inches. Please note that FastPass is not available.

Play Disney Parks App

Be sure to download the Play Disney Parks app before your visit. This app unlocks some fun interactive activities throughout Disneyland Resort. In Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, you can transform the app into your Star Wars Datapad, which allows you to scan objects around the land, translate alien languages, and tune in to communications by the planet’s residents. You can also learn more about your mission as you wait for Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run, and declare your allegiance to the Resistance or the First Order.

Special Experiences

Savi’s Workshop – Guests come to the workshop to meet with the Gatherers – a secretive group of people who have dedicated their lives to restoring balance in the galaxy by passing on their knowledge of Jedi lore and the Force. The workshop Master guides guests to customize and build their own unique lightsabers, and instructs them on the ways of the Jedi. Charges apply – reservations required.

Droid Depot – Build your own remote control droid at Black Spire Outpost’s industrial depot. Charges apply – reservations required.

Dining

Oga’s Cantina – Guests can grab a unique beverage and take in the DJ skills of R-3X, the former Star Tours pilot. Reservations required.

Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo – Chef Strono “Cookie” Tuggs has traveled throughout the galaxy following his longtime gig as the chef at Maz Kanata’s castle on Takodana and brings exotic flavors and unusual dishes to his traveling diner “Tuggs’ Grub.”

Ronto Roasters – A recycled podracing engine fires up a spit of exotic meats, meticulously turned by a former smelter droid, 8D-J8. Guests can even sample some of the tasty Ronto fare.

Milk Stand – The place to go to get your farm-fresh blue milk or green milk, direct from Bubo Wamba Family Farms.

Kat Saka’s Kettle – One of the many street market stalls, this grain vendor sells the ever-popular Outpost Mix (blend of sweet, savory and spicy popcorn).

Shopping

Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities – For those in the know, Dok-Ondar is the Ithorian you seek for selling and buying rare and uniquely-valued items from across the galaxy and spanning all eras. The mysterious Dok-Ondar will also be present in the shop to oversee his wares and employees.

Droid Depot – Visitors to Mubo’s workshop can choose parts and construct their own individual astromech droids to accompany them on their journey, and then take them home with them.

First Order Cargo – A spaceport hangar bay serves as the temporary base and landing spot for the First Order. First Order officers have brought in crates of gear, uniforms and other supplies to win the hearts and minds of locals and visitors to Black Spire Outpost.

Resistance Supply – Resistance members and local sympathizers oversee a makeshift stall that supplies Resistance uniforms, pins, badges, hats, helmets, jackets, maps, tools, training supplies, food rations and other items.

There are also several market stalls which sell a variety of merchandise such as:

  • Toydarian Toymaker (toys)

  • Creature Stall (interesting critters that you can take home with you)

  • Black Spire Outfitters (clothing)

  • The Jewels of Bith (accessories and other trinkets to treasure)
