The amount to see and do inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is astonishing and the land is home to epic rides like Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, galactic watering holes such as Oga’s Cantina and then there’s Savi’s Workshop where you will learn the ways of The Force. At over 14 acres this is Disney’s largest land expansion ever and we are going to countdown the top 10 experiences in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
With Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge now open at both Disneyland in California and the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida we couldn’t be more excited! Now we’re going to countdown the top 10 experiences you must do on your next visit to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
At more than 14 acres, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is the largest single-themed land in Disney Parks history, packed with immersive storytelling that allows guests to live their own Star Wars adventures. With so much to take in here are 10 “must-do” experiences for guests inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
10. Interact With the Characters
While exploring Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, be on the lookout, because you may encounter heroes of the Resistance or agents of the First Order. You might catch Supreme Leader Kylo Ren land his ship at Black Spire Outpost and gather Stormtroopers to help him hunt for Resistance fighter Rey. You may also encounter Millennium Falcon co-pilot Chewbacca or Resistance spy Vi Moradi.
9. Explore the Star Wars Data Pad
Once you’ve stepped inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the Play Disney Parks app transforms guests’ mobile devices into their very own Star Wars: Datapad. You can then scan the contents hidden inside containers, translate languages, and tune into communications happening throughout the land. You can also use this tool to hack into droids and door panels (what the locals call “slicing”) to unlock additional stories.
Also using the Play Disney Parks app guests can play together in a game called “Outpost Control” that takes place across the land. Guests can choose to support either the Resistance or the First Order by hacking the blinking light panels next to doorways throughout Black Spire Outpost. The faction that controls the majority of these panels first wins the game and demonstrates their allegiance to their side’s cause. The conflict plays out multiple times throughout the day.
8. Drop By for a Drink at Oga’s Cantina
The heartbeat of Black Spire Outpost, Oga’s Cantina is a place where even the blaster-fire scorches on the walls tell a story. Patrons can gather to share their own tales from around the galaxy as they enjoy exotic beverages served in unique vessels and listen to spirited musical entertainment from DJ R-3X, the former droid pilot from Star Tours. Whether sidling up to the cantina’s counter or sliding into one of the establishment’s back booths, this is the best place to catch up on local gossip, make a new friend or form a new alliance.
7. Build a Droid Inside the Droid Depot
Droids can be some of the most loyal companions in the entire Star Wars galaxy, and now you’ll have the chance to build and customize your own astromech droid at the Droid Depot. Patrons pick pieces and parts off a conveyor belt to construct one of two core models (R-series or BB-series), which can then interact with elements throughout Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
6. Craft a Lightsaber at Savi’s Workshop
Constructing a lightsaber is a rite of passage in the life of a Jedi, as this elegant weapon from a more civilized age is attuned to its owner through the Force. Guests in Savi’s Workshop feel the presence of the Force as they craft their own lightsabers, customizing them with various hilts, décor and the all-important kyber crystals.
5. Grab a Bite to Go at Ronto Roasters
Whether it’s the large podracing engine hanging overhead, the former smelter droid turning a spit of meats or just the savory smells wafting by, Ronto Roasters is sure to grab your attention. This quick-service location offers mouth-watering Ronto Wraps and sweet-or-spicy Nuna Turkey Jerky, as well as a selection of specialty beverages.
4. Take a Swig of Blue Milk
Ever since Luke Skywalker sat down for a family meal in “A New Hope,” Star Wars fans have had this burning question: What does Blue Milk taste like? Now at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, they finally have their answer. The Milk Stand in Black Spire Outpost offers both Blue Milk and Green Milk, delicious frozen blends with dashes of fruity accents.
3. Stroll the Black Spire Outpost Marketplace
Black Spire Outpost in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is home to a bustling marketplace, full of vendors showcasing wares from across the galaxy. Guests can pick up authentic Batuuan attire with a stop at Black Spire Outfitters, start a collection of toys at Toydarian Toymakers, or peek into the cages in the Creature Stall. The marketplace’s twisting pathway is just waiting to be explored, with something new to see seemingly around every turn.
2. Fly the “Fastest Hunk of Junk in the Galaxy” in Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run
The Millennium Falcon is a Star Wars icon, and Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge makes dreams come true for guests who’ve wished to step aboard the “fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy.” In Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, they strap into the Falcon cockpit and take the controls as pilots, gunners or flight engineers on a mission to deliver smuggled goods while avoiding any … unnecessary entanglements.
1. Experience Rise of the Resistance
In this exhilarating, multi-faceted ride. The most technologically advanced Disney has ever made in its 65-year history. It has guests attempt to join General Leia Organa’s Resistance but instead get captured by the evil First Order. There are many twists, turns, and, even, drops ensue, bringing passengers face-to-face with the likes of Finn, Rey, Poe Dameron, BB-8, Nien Nunb, and, of course, Kylo Ren himself. Once you safely land on Batuu, not only will the Resistance members there hail you as a hero of the movement, but so will a number of the other citizens of Black Spire Outpost.
