Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge offers many opportunities for visitors to personalize their journeys on Batuu. From the Play Disney Parks app that allows guests to interact with the land to carrying the burden (or glory!) of your Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run results everywhere you go, Black Spire Outpost has tons to offer.
