Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is the largest and most technologically advanced single-themed land expansion ever in a Disney park. The 14-acre land transports guests to the remote planet of Batuu, full of unique sights, sounds, smells and tastes.
Here, guests can become part of their own Star Wars stories as they experience galactic food and beverages, craft their own lightsabers, build their own droids and much more.
Here’s a roundup of some of what you can expect when you step onto Batuu…
Soar the Galaxy Aboard the Millennium Falcon – Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run makes dreams come true for guests who’ve wished to step aboard the “fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy.” Here, guests can 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.
Drink & Dine in Batuu – Weary travelers can take refuge in Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo or even grab a specialty cocktail in the outpost’s favorite watering hole, Oga’s Cantina. For a quick snack, you can also grab a delicious Ronto Wrap from Ronto Roasters or some sweet and spicy Outpost Mix from Kat Saka’s Kettle. And of course, you can always sip on the popular plant-based Blue Milk (or even Green Milk!) at the Milk Stand. For full menus and to make reservations for Oga’s Cantina, be sure to check out the My Disney Experience app or check out our recent Foodie Guide, and don’t forget – mobile ordering is available for the Milk Stand, Docking Bay 7 Food & Cargo, and Ronto Roasters!
Shop for Wares Found Only On Batuu – Black Spire Outpost 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. Guests can visit Savi’s Workshop to craft their own lightsabers, customizing them with various hilts, décor and the all-important kyber crystals, or build and customize their own astromech friends at the Droid Depot.
Encounter Characters in Batuu – Nothing brings the adventure on Batuu to life like encountering a familiar face from the Star Wars galaxy. Be on the lookout for Chewie, Rey, Kylo Ren, stormtroopers and Resistance spy Vi Moradi.
