There are so many amazing components to these dual coast theme parks!
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will open in Disneyland park in the summer of 2019, and in Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios in late fall of 2019.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Planet of Batuu
Guests will step directly into Star Wars Canon when they set foot onto Batuu, the planet that is the setting for Galaxy’s Edge.
Black Spire Outpost is a village on Batuu, and it’s the one we will be visiting when Galaxy’s Edge opens. As the largest settlement on the planet, it’s also “an infamous stop for traders, adventurers, and smugglers traveling around the Outer Rim and Wild Space.” What were once towering trees now stand as spires comprised of the petrified remains… hence, the Black Spire Outpost.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Rides
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will be home to two attractions. One will even allow guests to take control of the Millennium Falcon.
The interactive nature of this experience will deliver an aspect unique to Galaxy’s Edge in that the guest’s own story and experience on the planet of Batuu will be directly tied to how they perform their duties on their mission on the attraction, as it will “follow” them, in a sense, around various parts of the land. Six guests will participate in each ride vehicle with varying duties from piloting the ship, handling weapons, and overseeing engineering issues.
Guests will also be able to enter a life-sized ship — a Resistance Troop Transport — on their way to the second attraction before setting off “on an adventure.” (You may even encounter a couple of full-size AT-AT Walkers on the way!)
Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge Restaurants and Dining
Galaxy’s Edge will offer uniquely themed dining experiences including a Cantina and a Supper Club!
Of course, there’s a Cantina coming to the new land! Oga’s Cantina will open in both Disney World’s Hollywood Studios and Disneyland.
Oga Garra is the alien proprietor of Oga’s Cantina… and as Black Spire Outpost is set on a smuggler’s planet, Oga is used to keeping “unruly patrons in check.” In fact, the Cantina has a history of being a safe haven for smugglers and patrons hoping to avoid authorities.
Oga’s Cantina is famous for its concoctions — which will be available with choices for kids and adults both — that feature “exotic ingredients using otherworldly methods, served in unique vessels.” Disney has confirmed that the menu will include themed cocktails, non-alcoholic specialty drinks (mocktails) and “proprietary beer and wine options,” making this a first (outside of Club 33) for serving alcohol in Disneyland.
Expect RX-24, the former StarSpeeder 3000 pilot droid from Star Tours, to serve as the Cantina’s DJ! And don’t be surprised to see Strormtroopers and more familiar faces at Oga’s Cantina.

Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge in Progress
The entrance to Galaxy’s Edge in Disney’s Hollywood Studios is already impressive, offering our very first glimpse of the 14-acre land.
Construction is happening at a fast pace to prepare for the 2019 openings!
Star Wars Hotel
A Star Wars Hotel will debut in Disney World, seamlessly connected to Galaxy’s Edge in Disney’s Hollywood Studios! It will be located on the south side of Hollywood Studios, just east of World Drive.
The experience will be unlike any other Disney destination anywhere. Guests will board a starship “that comes alive with characters and stories that unfold all around them during their voyage through the galaxy.” It will also come alive by way of its setting, with every cabin window offering views of space.
This “multi-day adventure” will also offer guests the chance to become residents of the Galaxy, as dressing in Star Wars attire will be welcome!
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Merchandise
Though Galaxy’s Edge will not open until 2019, you can actually find merchandise available in Disney World’s Hollywood Studios now.
However, specialty merchandise will also be available, unique to Galaxy’s Edge, upon opening. For instance, if YOU have a certain favorite creature from the Star Wars universe, you might be able to purchase one to take home with you from the Creature Stall… where Star Wars creatures come to life (including Loth-cats)!
This will be in addition to a Toydarian, who will sell handcrafted toys made by local artisans in the village.
