From Morning to Night Here are 9 Activities You’ll Want to Incorporate Into Your Galaxy’s Edge Visit
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is now open at Disneyland park. With the crowds having died down a wee bit and reservations no longer required to enter the land, it’s the perfect time to visit the remote planet of Batuu. We’ve pulled together a day-to-night itinerary to help you plan your trip. Here are 9 activities we think you’ll want to make sure you get to during your visit!
Reserve Your Spot for Special Experiences
The business has been booming at Oga’s Cantina and Savi’s Workshop, so much so that reservations are required for entry to either experience. Reservations can be made as early as 7 a.m., the morning of your visit at Disneyland.com/Cantina, Disneyland.com/SavisWorkshop or the Disneyland app (subject to change). Be sure to check the Disneyland app or signage inside Disneyland Park to see if the digital queue is operating and whether you need to request to join a boarding group to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
Head to Ronto Roasters for Breakfast
If you arrive at Galaxy’s Edge in the AM, your first stop in Black Spire Outpost should be Ronto Roasters. The large podracing engine hangs overhead, which fires the barbecue pit, while a former smelter droid carefully turns a spit of meats. This marketplace stall offers mouth-watering Ronto Wraps, including the savory Ronto Morning Wrap. It’s a delicious snack with scrambled eggs, grilled pork sausage, shredded cheese, and peppercorn sauce wrapped in a pita.
Visit the Market for Some Out-of-This-World Wares
During your downtime be sure to stroll the Black Spire Outpost Marketplace to haggle with vendors from across the galaxy. Black Spire Outfitters has all the latest Batuuan styles and the Creature Stall houses some of the galaxy’s most unique (and cuddly) pets. The marketplace is yours to explore, with something new seemingly around every turn.
Get Behind the Wheel of the Fastest Hunk of Junk in the Galaxy
If you’re a Star Wars fan, no doubt you’ve dreamed about stepping aboard the “fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy.” Now is your dreams can become reality with Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. Strap into the Falcon cockpit and take the controls as a pilot, defend as a gunner or maintain the ship’s systems as a flight engineer. It’s up to you and your fellow passengers to smuggle goods while avoiding any unnecessary entanglements.
Galaxy’s Edge Quick Tip: The chess-type game played on the table in the Millennium Falcon main hold and lounge is called Dejarik. Sit at this table and snap a photo with your crew before taking off!
Build Yourself a Trusted Companion
Step into the Droid Depot, an immersive workshop stocked with stacks of parts, chips and manuals. Pick pieces and parts off a conveyor belt to construct one of two core models droids to call your own: the BB-series or R-series astromech. The Depot also offers prebuilt droids, housewares and apparel, all inspired by the design, engineering and building of droids.
First Order or Resistance?
Be on the lookout for agents of the First Order or heroes of the Resistance. Supreme Leader Kylo Ren lands at Black Spire Outpost and gathers Stormtroopers to help him hunt for Resistance fighter Rey. You may also encounter Millennium Falcon co-pilot Chewbacca or Resistance spy Vi Moradi. Which side will you form an allegiance with?
Sample Some Milk
Have you ever wondered what the Blue and Green milk Luke is seen drinking in the films really tastes like? Head over to the Milk Stand to find out! Sample Blue or Green Milk, which are both delicious frozen blends with dashes of fruity accents.
Curb Your Hunger With a Galactic Dining Experience
You’ll recognize Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo by the transport shuttle that is sitting atop this food joint. Chef Strono “Cookie” Tuggs’ journeys from system to system allowing him to fill his pantry with exotic ingredients he uses to concoct new dishes. This eatery is the perfect spot for a hearty lunch or dinner. Looking for recommendations? We suggest you try smoked Kaadu ribs or Fried Endorian Tip-yip, followed by a Batuu-bon for dessert. This restaurant also participates in Disneyland’s Mobile Ordering system allowing you to order up your food in advance and having it waiting for you when you arrive.
Round Out Your Visit With a Nightcap
No trip to Batuu would be complete without a stop at Oga’s Cantina. The heartbeat of Black Spire Outpost, here you can gather with other visitors as you enjoy exotic beverages such as the spicy Bloody Rancor, the foamy Fuzzy Tauntaun or the fruity Carbon Freeze. Also be sure to check out the entertaining tunes coming form DJ R-3X, the former droid pilot from Star Tours.
