There has been a ton of new information and details about Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, from all sorts of different sources. The Disney Parks blog, Star Wars Celebration, things that have popped up in various facebook groups, and through my travel agent email. It seems like a lot to keep track of, and with my own visit approaching soon I wanted to get it all into one place. I thought it might be helpful to other people who are visiting or just curious as well!
If you want to know the basic details about how visiting Galaxy’s Edge will work and planning your trip, you’ll want to check out this blog post for helpful information.
Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run
The queue will be part of the attraction. Here you will be assigned jobs within your group of 6. You will hang out here for 2-3 minutes, take pictures, check everything out, before being called down the hallway to the cockpit. The CMs will help you get seated and strapped in for the mission. Once the crew is ready, Hondo will be your guide.
Besides the flashing buttons that you need to push, you will hear Hondo helping you through the mission – “Let’s go to Lightspeed” and maybe he’ll encourage you to shoot some TIE Fighters. Once your mission has been completed, you will return to Hondo’s base and land inside where you started.
the exit hallway (while you’re still “onboard” the Falcon) will change depending on how well you performed. If you bumped a lot of stuff or took some blaster hits, it will look damaged…
Must be 38″ or taller to ride.
Rise of the Resistance
Rise of the Resistance will not be opening when Galaxy’s Edge first opens, and there is no opening date for this attraction announced yet – but we do know it is intended to be the headliner attraction, and is supposed to be even better than the Millennium Falcon.
It will be a trackless dark ride and rumored to last 25 minutes long. News sources say it will have a 40″ height requirement.
When you reach the point where all of the queues meet inside the mountain, everyone will see BB-8 there. He will project a holographic message from Rey, explaining that the Resistance needs YOUR help. After her message, 2 large doors will open in front of you and you will see the ITS shuttle (see image attached) – 48-50 people at a time will be ushered into the ITS shuttle for transport.
Food and Drink
Oga’s Cantina – “Welcome to the local cantina, where bounty hunters, smugglers, rogue traders and weary travelers of all ages come together to refuel, enjoy music and conduct meetings—no questions asked. ” Because the Cantina is so small, drink buyers will be under a one-hour time limit. When your time is up, you’ll be asked to leave so another guest can experience the location.
There will be a variety of alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages served, including Moogan Tea, Blue Bantha, Bloody Rancor, and the Black Spire Brew.
Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo – “Chef Strono “Cookie” Tuggs has docked a food freighter loaded with fresh supplies and he’s ready to satisfy the appetites of visitors and locals alike with an array of exotic offerings.”
Food served will include Braised Shaak Roast, Felucian Garden Spread, Fried Endorian Tip-Yip or Oven-roasted Tip Yip (chicken), Ithorian Garden Loaf (plant based “meatloaf”), Oven-roasted Burra Fish, Smoked Kaadu Ribs, and a Yobshrimp Noodle Salad
Ronto Roasters – a stand serving a Ronto Wrap (filled with spiced grilled sausage and roasted pork). You’ll also find turkey jerky here and a few non-alcoholic specialty drinks.
Milk stand – serves blue milk and green milk, but they don’t actually have milk – it will be plant based and frozen, similar in consistency to a smoothie or milkshake. Blue Milk: Berry and melon flavors. Green Milk: Tropical and citrus flavors.
Kat Saka’s Kettle – Serving Outpost mix, a popcorn mix that will be spicy, sweet, and salty.
Coca-Cola beverages in unique bottles printed in Aurebesh will be available for purchase.
Savi’s Workshop – Handbuilt Lightsabers – Guests come to the workshop to meet with the Gatherers – a secretive group of people who have dedicated their lives to restoring balance in the galaxy by passing on their knowledge of Jedi lore and the Force. The workshop Master guides guests to customize and build their own unique lightsabers, and instructs them on the ways of the Jedi.
Droid Depot – Visitors to Mubo’s workshop can choose parts and construct their own individual astromech droids to accompany them on their journey, and then take them home with them.
First Order Cargo – A spaceport hangar bay serves as the temporary base and landing spot for the First Order. First Order officers have brought in crates of gear, uniforms and other supplies to win the hearts and minds of locals and visitors to Black Spire Outpost.
Resistance Supply – Resistance members and local sympathizers oversee a makeshift stall that supplies Resistance uniforms, pins, badges, hats, helmets, jackets, maps, tools, training supplies, food rations and other items.
There are also several market stalls which sell a variety of merchandise such as:
- Toydarian Toymaker (toys)
- Creature Stall (interesting critters that you can take home with you)
- Black Spire Outfitters (clothing)
- The Jewels of Bith (accessories and other trinkets to treasure)
The Play Disney Parks app will give you even more opportunities to enjoy Galaxy’s Edge. Get ready to bring your adventure to life in the following ways:

“Till the Spire” – just so you are prepared when you arrive at Galaxy’s Edge, they have a saying you should be familiar with. When you finish talking to someone on Batuu, instead of saying “goodbye” or “See you later” – the locals like to say “Till the Spire” – kind of a “Until I see you at Black Spire again”
So if you finish a conversation with a local, be sure to say “Till the Spire” as you leave!
