Your Complete Guide to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

Sharing is caring!

Star Wars fans are celebrating the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge on both coasts!  Galaxy’s Edge has been open at the Disneyland Park for a few months now and guest feedback has been fantastic.  Walt Disney World-goers are anxiously awaiting the official opening at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on Thursday, August 29, 2019.  Cast previews are taking place and the feedback is equally positive about the Orlando version of Galaxy’s Edge.  With two enormous new lands at both Disney destinations offering unique experiences, character interaction, menus, and attractions, I’ve put together a list of resources, so you know exactly what to expect during your next visit so read on for Your Complete Guide to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge!

Our fan-site, TheMouseForLess.com, has several blog posts and informational pages that will explain what you can wear, where you can buy blue milk, and how to go about building your own droid!  You may be wondering if you can wear costumes, or how tall you must be to pilot the Millennium Falcon, and we have compiled all that information for you.

First off, Galaxy’s Edge is where you cross over into another galaxy to the planet Batuu.  Batuu’s largest settlement is known as Black Spire Outpost, where you’ll find members of the First Order along with smugglers, villagers, and possibly those associated with the Resistance.

Not sure how to navigate another galaxy?  Here’s the best place to get started: Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Guide

 

Dining

Dining in Galaxy’s Edge will be like no other experience.  You can try the infamous Blue Milk seen in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, or maybe something specific to Batuu like a Ronto Wrap?  We’ve got the menus so you can plan ahead!  Reservations are now being accepted at Disneyland for Oga’s Cantina (read here) as well as Hollywood Studios (read here).

Since you may be eager to get to Batuu (and it will be open early!), it’ll be good to know that there are breakfast items available!

Shopping

There are some seriously cool items to be purchases in Batuu, but they’ll come at a price and you’ll need a reservation!  What Padawan doesn’t want to build his/her own lightsaber?  You’ll want to note that the lightsabers cost $199 and are non-refundable. Customized droids can be designed and purchased for $99.   There are some recommendations and guidelines for both of these experiences.  Check out the details of what’s offered and how to make a reservation!

Attractions

“Chewie, we’re going home!”  This is it!  We can finally have the same experience as our beloved characters– a ride in the Millennium Falcon!  The first new attraction to open in Galaxy’s Edge is Smuggler’s Run: Millennium Falcon and you may be able to pilot this ship!  Rise of the Resistance will open December 5,, 2019 at Walt Disney World and January 17, 2020 at Disneyland.  Guest can still get some Star Wars love outside of Galaxy’s Edge, riding Star Tours or participate in the Jedi Training.

When to go

Disneyland Park has seen surprisingly low crowds since the opening of Galaxy’s Edge, but we’re not sure how things will go at Walt Disney World.  Currently, we only know that there will be Extra, Extra Magic Hours for two months where resort guests can enter Disney’s Hollywood Studios at 6:00 am.  We’re all anxiously awaiting news of what opening week (and even after) will bring!

About Jocelyn Martins

I have been traveling my entire life and love any time at Disney parks, Universal Orlando, on cruise ships, at the beach, and really any place with my family and friends. While Walt Disney World is my home park, I've visited Disneyland and Disneyland Paris- when it first opened as EuroDisney, and find it hard to choose a favorite park but especially love all thing Epcot! I am also a huge Harry Potter fan and just love soaking up the Wizard World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando. And any cruise or destination by the water simply makes my happy (salt water heals everything). ?I love to make memories while traveling and am passionate about helping others plan time together, making their own memories. My three girls have been traveling since my oldest was just 10 weeks old so I'm experienced at traveling with children, as well as multi-generational families and large groups.There are so many options available with Disney and Universal destinations, as well as cruises, that I believes there is a magical trip out there for everyone, and thrive on finding that perfect-for-you trip! I am a specialist in these destinations and love helping guests put together the best trip for them.I also stay active throughout the year training for the runDisney race challenges on both coasts – there’s nothing like running through the parks! My other loves include any time spent with my husband children, reading, and going to the beach.
