The Force is strong at Disneyland park where you can find galactic experiences and epic encounters, including the newly opened Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance attraction inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Here are all the ways to live out your Star Wars adventures at the Disneyland Resort:
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge
Transport to the remote planet Batuu, which is home to Black Spire Outpost. You become part of the story as you sample galactic food and beverages, explore an intriguing collection of merchant shops and encounter some of your favorite Star Wars characters, including the resourceful and loyal astromech droid R2-D2.
In addition, you can take the controls of the most famous ship in the galaxy aboard Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and race through the halls of a Star Destroyer on the all-new Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance! This epic, new adventure blurs the lines between fantasy and reality on a scale never seen before in a Disney attraction.
Head to the Creature Stall within the Black Spire Outpost marketplace, which houses some of the galaxy’s most unique (and cuddly) pets, including temperamental Loth-cats. Also on Batuu is Droid Depot, where you can build your very own BB-series or R-series droid, choosing from a colorful variety of components to customize the sidekick.* You may also feel the Force as you craft and customize your very own lightsaber at Savi’s Workshop – Handbuilt Lightsabers.** Droid Depot and Savi’s Workshop offer advance reservations up to 60 days in advance; check out the Disneyland Resort website or the Disneyland app to make your reservations!
To commemorate the opening of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, pick up essential items, such as apparel and accessories suitable for any Rebel. You may also be interested in the First Order Short-Range Evacuation Vehicle Play Set, which features a First Order transport with its own R5-series astromech droid.
Epic Food and Beverages
Snack on a new Ronto-less Garden Wrap at Ronto Roasters, featuring plant-based sausage, spicy kimchi slaw, sweet pickled cucumber and Gochujang spread all wrapped in pita. Another tasty bite is Kyryll Pork Rinds with cinnamon-sugar.
Over at Kat Saka’s Kettle, taste chocolate popcorn with Crait Red Salt then head to the Milk Stand for a refreshing cup of blue or green milk. The new Toydaria Swirl mixes Green Milk with swirls of savory chili lime seasoning and mango jelly. For a warmer treat, indulge in Black Spire Hot Chocolate, topped with shimmering whipped cream, available at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo and Ronto Roasters.
Star Tours – The Adventures Continue
In Tomorrowland, blast off on a thrilling 3D tour of the Star Wars galaxy aboard a Starspeeder 1000, which takes passengers to exciting destinations inspired by Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. After being rocketed to the farthest reaches of the galaxy, hold on tight as your ship hurtles through a climactic interstellar battle!
Star Wars Launch Bay
Go behind the scenes of some of the Star Wars films and get an up-close look at props, costumes and authentic replicas created specifically for Star Wars Launch Bay, also in Tomorrowland. While you are there, you may even encounter some epic heroes—and menacing villains—including Darth Vader.
