Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge has quickly become a top destination for travelers around the world. The Disneyland park opened recently with reservations booked until June 23rd, and the Walt Disney World park will open August 29th.
The new Disney parks expansion will transport you to the Black Spire Outpost on the planet of Batuu with rides, aliens, droids, food, merchandise, and a full-sized Millennium Falcon. Whether you plan on waiting in line now or later, here’s our guide to Disney’s Star Wars theme park.
Fly the Millennium Falcon and Fight for the Resistance
When Galaxy’s Edge opens, you’ll have a chance to pilot the Millennium Falcon at the Smuggler’s Run attraction. The fully immersive ride puts you in the cockpit of the starship, where you’ll take on the role of a pilot, gunner, or engineer.
Meanwhile, the Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance ride will be hitting both parks later this year. This interactive experience will feature Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, and Adam Driver in their movie roles as you join the fight between the First Order and the Resistance.
Build Your Own Lightsaber and Droid
Galaxy’s Edge will also give you the opportunity to adopt iconic objects from the Star Wars universe. At Savi’s Workshop, you’ll be able to build you own lightsaber. You will join a small group guided by park employees as you construct a high-quality lightsaber, which will cost you around $200.
You can also travel to the Droid Depot, where you can make an astromech droid like R2-D2 or BB-8. Grab various droid parts from the conveyor belt to make a remote-controlled mini droid, which will have Bluetooth capabilities and can interact with the Black Spire Outpost’s settings. A droid built at the depot will cost you $100 and comes with a carrying case.
The Black Spire Outpost also has many other spots where you can buy Jedi or Sith robes, themed toys, and more.
Try Intergalactic Cuisine
The park has many places where you can finally get a taste of the Star Wars galaxy. One of the most sought-after items at Galaxy’s Edge will be the blue or green milk, which will be served at all five food locations in the park and at its own stand for $8. You can also purchase alcoholic beverages at Oga’s Cantina. Visitors are only permitted to two drinks within a 45-minute timeframe at the cantina. Ronto Roasters, whose menu includes exotic juices, teas, and more, is another place where you can grab a drink.
The park also features plenty of meal and snack options. Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo is the main hub for food, offering breakfast, lunch, and dinner options.
