5 Awesome Things You’ll Be Able to Do With the Play Disney Parks App at Galaxy’s Edge
For those of you that may have missed it, Disney held a live broadcast this morning of the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge panel at this year’s Star Wars Celebration current being held in Chicago! One of the neat things we learned during this streaming event was the way that the Play Disney Parks App will be used to enhance your experience while in this exciting new area of the theme parks!
Disney unveiled the Play Disney Parks App last year to introduce a fun way for theme parks fans to pass the time while waiting in line at the parks. The app is already brimming with games that guests can enjoy while standing in queues, interactive elements allowing you to unlock different experiences depending on where you on the theme parks and also the ability to listen to some of your favorite theme park tunes.
However, when Galaxy’s Edge opens at Disneyland in May and Hollywood Studios in August, the app really becomes next level! Under the upcoming system, your smartphone will be transformed into a Star Wars Data Pad which will be used as an “In Story Tool” in a handful of fun and different ways. Let’s take at 5 of the ways you’ll be working with Play Disney Parks when Galaxy’s Edge opens.
The Play Disney Parks App will feature a Hacking Tool in it’s Galaxy’s Edge interface. It’s perfect for all you slicers out there and will provide guests with the ability to interact with droids at Black Spire Outpost as well as some of the panels in the ships!
2. Scanning Tool
The Scanning Tool will allow you to scan precious cargo and items throughout the land. An example given during the panel discussion is that you may see a stack of cargo crates in Black Spire Outpost. By utilizing the tool you’ll be able to see what’s in these precious packages to give you a clearer understanding of storylines weaving throughout your visit to Batuu.
3. Translation Device
This is a distant planet after all and you can’t expect everything to be written in English. This tool will actually allow you to translate what various signs say throughout your visit so that you don’t end up in the wrong place at the wrong time!
4. Tuning Tool
One of the things that we here at MickeyBlog are the most excited about is all of the awesome backstories and active storylines weaving their way through your Galaxy’s Edge adventure. With this tool, visitors will have the ability to tune into various satellites and eavesdrop on the amazing plotlines happening around you!
5. Interactive Game Dubbed Outpost Control
One of the awesome features of a Galaxy’s Edge visit is that guests will be able to make a choice regarding what side you’re one – The First Order or the Resistance. One of the ways you can do this is through a fun interactive game called Outpost Control. At many of the hangar bays and doorways throughout Batuu, you’ll notice that surveillance devices have been set up by the First Order. If you’re on their side your goal is to maintain the systems. Fighting for the resistance? They dismantle them. Your decisions will allow you to earn faction points with whatever side you choose!
