Experience Disneyland's Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge like a Jedi

You won’t find roller coasters in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland. Instead, you’ll encounter two immersive Star Wars attractions designed to put you squarely in the middle of the action.

The newest Disneyland attraction — which opened May 31, 2019 — also has Star Wars-themed food and drink, customizable droids and lightsabers and other merchandise to let you take this immersive experience back home.

Here's what you need to know before you go:

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Rides

Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run is a flight simulator set in the cockpit of the galaxy’s most beloved spaceship.

You’ll get a flight debrief in the ship’s Chess Room, then take the controls in the cockpit as a pilot, gunner, or flight engineer.

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, a multipart attraction that will open later this year, includes a trackless vehicle and makes you a new Resistance recruit.

You’ll find yourself inside a full-size spaceship and aboard a Star Destroyer as you battle the First Order and Kylo Ren.

GALAXY’S EDGE FOOD and DRINK

Forget burgers and cola on Batuu. Disney’s culinary team has created exotic new Star Wars fare — think Fried Endorian Tip-Yip (tastes like chicken) washed down with Sour Sarlacc (a fruit juice mix). Among the highlights:

At Oga’s Cantina (pictured above), an animatronic DJ R-3X spins the galaxy’s hits. You can order whimsical nonalcoholic drinks such as blue milk, which Luke Skywalker sipped in Star Wars: A New Hope. Perhaps you could use something stronger after going mano a mano with the First Order? You’ll also find beer, wine and exclusive Outer Rim cocktails. Jedi Mind Trick, anyone?

Black Spire Outpost is home to two casual eateries:

Ronto Roasters’ barbecue pit turns out nosh-worthy sandwiches. Pictured below is the Ronto Wrap, Meiloorun Juice and Turkey Jerky.

Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo serves smoked Kaadu ribs (pork ribs) with a side of intergalactic corn bread.

Vegans should try the Felucian Garden Spread, featuring vegan meatballs, hummus, and grilled pita.

BUY DROIDS AND LIGHTSABERS, YOU CAN

Shopping for exclusive toys and other merch that Disney has developed for Black Spire Outpost is designed to be fun and immersive.

Drop into Droid Depot and you can construct a droid to your specifications (choose from R- or BB-series).

At Savi’s Workshop—Handbuilt Lightsabers, you can build a battle-ready customized lightsaber.

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge RESERVATIONS

Batuu might be a backwater planet on the galaxy’s Outer Rim, but it’s bound to draw crowds.

Reservations to access Galaxy’s Edge between opening day and June 23 sold out fast, but visitors staying overnight in one of the three Disneyland hotels during that period can still get reservations to visit the land during their stay.

After June 23, reservations will no longer be required. To continue to manage demand and provide a great guest experience, Disneyland will offer a virtual queueing system, as needed, to visit the land. Check disneyland.com for updates.
