Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland® Resort – Here’s What You Should Know…

Meet iconic characters like Chewbacca at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is set to open in summer 2019 at Disneyland® Resort.

Calling all galactic travelers and Jedi Masters! We’re getting really hyped for the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge land set to open at Disneyland® Park this summer. Being a Disneyland® Resort Good Neighbor Hotel and huge Disney and Star Wars{™} fans ourselves, we’ve been keeping our eyes peeled for all things Galaxy’s Edge since it was first announced. Now that we’re getting even closer, we are out-of-this-world excited. Based on news reports and releases, here are a few of the exciting things that await us in a galaxy far, far away:

  • Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. This exciting interactive attraction puts you right behind the controls of the most famous ship in the galaxy! Get ready to blast off and check out the Disney teaser trailer.


  • Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. It’s the Resistance versus the First Order — and you’re right in the center of the epic battle. How cool is that?! Here’s a sneak peek of this motion-based dark ride from Disney.


  • New Star Wars music. Even non-Star Wars fans recognize the saga’s epic music. There be exclusive new and original themes just for the land — created by Oscar-winning composer John Williams! The music was recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios. Check out the below video for a preview.


  • Planet Batuu. This is new to Star Wars fans, which makes it all the more exciting and mysterious. According to the website, it’s “a remote outpost on the galaxy’s edge that was once a busy crossroads along the old sub-lightspeed trade routes.” Based on the construction video below, it’s shaping up to be one of the most massive and immersive lands yet!


  • Black Spire Outpost. It was revealed early last summer that the name of the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge village would be Black Spire Outpost. According to the news release, Black Spire Outpost is the largest settlement on the planet Batuu and “an infamous stop for traders, adventurers, and smugglers traveling around the Outer Rim and Wild Space.” There’s sure to be lots of galactic adventures around every corner.


  • Oga’s Cantina. Of course, any outpost needs a good cantina. It will feature themed music, characters, and drinks for both kids and adults — blue milk, anyone? This is the first time in history guests will be able to enjoy alcoholic beverages inside Disneyland (other than members-only Club 33). Visitors may also recognize RX-24, the former StarSpeeder 3000 pilot droid that once piloted the Star Tours ride in Tomorrowland, serving as the cantina’s DJ. Oga’s Cantina is the perfect spot for smugglers, bounty hunters, and locals alike to kick back and relax.


  • A quick-serve restaurant (rumored). Few details have been released, but the word around the galaxy is there will be a quick-serve restaurant. We’re keeping our eyes and ears peeled to see what exciting dining opportunities await.


  • The most realistic lightsaber ever? In late 2018, it was reported that Disney filed a patent for a “sword device with retractable, internally illuminated blade” — which sounds a lot like a lightsaber, right? Many are speculating that this “new and improved” design could be the most realistic on the market and available at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.


There’s a lot to still be released about this immersive experience and we can’t wait to hear more. We anticipate that we’ll see some iconic Star Wars characters, including Kylo Ren, Chewbacca, BB-8, and more, as well as themed food and beverage options, souvenirs, events, and more. Keep checking back because we’ll be sharing more details as they arise.

We’ll see you on Planet Batuu!
