At more than 14 acres, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is the largest single-themed land in Disney Parks history. This intergalactic playground is packed with immersive storytelling that allows guests to live your very own Star Wars adventures. With so much to take in at Disneyland Park, here are 11 “must-do” experiences for guests inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge:
Join a Climactic Battle in Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance
The Star Wars saga comes to life as guests experience the most ambitious, immersive, advanced and action-packed attraction ever created at a Disney park. Board your full-sized transport shuttle before being captured by a Star Destroyer. Before you know it, you’re in the middle of an epic fight between the Resistance and the First Order. Guests will come face to face with some of your favorite Star Wars characters, including Resistance heroes Rey, Poe and Finn, as well as Kylo Ren and General Hux of the First Order.
Fly the “Fastest Hunk of Junk in the Galaxy” in Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run
The Millennium Falcon is a Star Wars icon, and Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge makes your dreams come true as you climb aboard the“fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy.” In Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, you’ll strap into the Falcon cockpit and take the controls as pilots, gunners or flight engineers on a mission to deliver smuggled goods while avoiding any … unnecessary entanglements.
Stroll the Black Spire Outpost Marketplace
Black Spire Outpost in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is home to a bustling marketplace, full of vendors showcasing wares from across the galaxy. Guests can pick up authentic Batuuan attire with a stop at Black Spire Outfitters, start a collection of rare artifacts at Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities, or peek into the cages in the Creature Stall. The marketplace’s twisting pathway is just waiting to be explored, with something new to see seemingly around every turn.
Take a Swig of Blue Milk
Ever since Luke Skywalker sat down for a family meal in “Star Wars: A New Hope,” Star Wars fans have had this burning question: What does Blue Milk taste like? Now at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, they finally have their answer. The Milk Stand in the Black Spire Outpost marketplace offers both Blue and Green Milk, delicious frozen blends with dashes of fruity accents.

Grab a Bite to Go at Ronto Roasters
Whether it’s the large podracing engine hanging overhead, the former smelter droid turning a spit of meats or just the savory smells wafting by, Ronto Roasters is sure to grab your attention. This marketplace stall offers mouth-watering Ronto Wraps and sweet-or-spicy Nuna Turkey Jerky, as well as a selection of speciality beverages.
Craft a Lightsaber at Savi’s Workshop
Constructing a lightsaber is a rite of passage in the life of a Jedi, as this elegant weapon from a more civilized age is attuned to its wielder through the Force. Guests in Savi’s Workshop – Handbuilt Lightsabers will feel the presence of the Force as you craft your very own lightsabers. You can customize everything from hilts to kyber crystals.
Build a Droid Inside the Droid Depot
Droids can be some of the most loyal companions in the entire Star Wars galaxy, and now you have the chance to build and customize your own astromech friends at the Droid Depot. Visitors to the depot pick pieces and parts off a conveyor belt to construct one of two core models (R-series or BB-series), which can then interact with elements throughout Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
Drop By for a Drink at Oga’s Cantina
The heart of Black Spire Outpost, Oga’s Cantina is a place where even the blaster-bolt scorches on the walls tell a story. Guests can gather to share their own tales from around the galaxy as they enjoy exotic beverages served in unique vessels and listen to spirited musical entertainment from DJ R-3X, the former droid pilot from Star Tours. Whether sidling up to the cantina’s counter or sliding into one of the establishment’s back booths, this is the best place to catch up on local gossip, make a new friend or form a new alliance.
Hack Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge with the Play Disney Parks Mobile App
When accessed inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the Play Disney Parks app transforms your mobile device into your very own Star Wars: Datapad. You can use it to scan the contents hidden inside containers, translate languages, and tune into communications happening throughout the land. Visitors can even use this tool to hack into droids and door panels (what the locals call “slicing”) to unlock additional stories.
Support the Resistance or the First Order to Gain Outpost Control
Using the Play Disney Parks mobile app guests can play together in a game called “Outpost Control” that takes place across the land. Guests can choose to support either the Resistance or the First Order by hacking the blinking light panels next to doorways throughout Black Spire Outpost. The faction that controls the majority of these panels first wins the game and demonstrates their allegiance to their side’s cause. The conflict plays out multiple times throughout the day.
Be on the Lookout for Kylo Ren, Rey and Other Star Wars Characters
Guests should keep their eyes open as you explore Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, because you may encounter heroes of the Resistance or agents of the First Order. Supreme Leader Kylo Ren lands at Black Spire Outpost and gathers Stormtroopers to help him hunt for Resistance fighter Rey. Guests may also encounter Millennium Falcon co-pilot Chewbacca or Resistance spy Vi Moradi, as well as the resourceful and loyal astromech droid R2-D2.
