We have ONE WEEK until Galaxy’s Edge officially opens to the public!
So get ready, because you’re going to need your park tickets loaded on this galactic gadget before you can pilot the Millennium Falcon!
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge (finally!) opens in Walt Disney World this month (August 29!), and if you are planning to visit Disney’s Hollywood Studios in the early days of Black Spire Outpost, you’re likely sitting on some FastPass+ reservations or trying to figure out what to select.
With the announcement that Hollywood Studios will change to a tiered FastPass system on August 29 (of course) and knowing that Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run won’t utilize FastPass in the land’s initial opening period, it’s trickier than ever to know what to do. [Read more…]
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opened with a bang at Disneyland Park on May 31, and the Disney World version blasts off in just a matter of weeks on August 29.
And with so much to experience in this immersive new land, we’re taking a look at seven things — big and small! — that you CAN’T miss when you visit Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu!
For the Galaxy’s Edge grand openings, only one of the two major rides has been ready to roll: Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. [Read more…]
We’re BACK at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland because TODAY IS THE DAY we have all been waiting for: the first day for regular guest admission into the land.
Since the opening of Galaxy’s Edge on May 31, 2019, guests have only been able to enter if they had a reservation, which they could obtain by staying at a Disney resort or by getting one of the few offered online. But now, anyone can get into Galaxy’s Edge (here’s how to get into Galaxy’s Edge now that the reservation period is closed)…and the land is experiencing some growing pains!
Calling all Resistance Pilots and First Order Captains: we spotted some out-of-this-galaxy phone cases in Disneyland that you NEED!
The Star Trader in Disneyland Park is always chock-full of Star Wars goodies, and this is no exception! Let’s start with these awesome Black Spire Outpost specific cases:
It’s time for YOU to take control of the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy on Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run!
Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run is one of what will ultimately be two attractions in Galaxy’s Edge. (Its counterpart, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, will open later this year.)
And when you step into Smugglers Run, you’ll be on a mission. Through your assigned role of Pilot, Engineer, or Gunner, you’ll help your crew either succeed or fail in transporting contraband cargo as directed by Hondo Ohnaka. [Read more…]
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland Park has opened its gates, and we’ve explored the planet of Batuu and its pock-marked village, Black Spire Outpost, to bring you the Ultimate Guide to this brand new land.
The citizens of Batuu (a/k/a cast members!) use many unfamiliar expressions when interacting with each other and with guests. You might start your visit hearing “Bright suns”, which is Batuu for hello. “Till the Spire” is one way to say good-bye. But if you’re leaving Black Spire Outpost to return to Earth (i.e. Disneyland Park), you might hear a citizen ask if you’re “going off-world”.
There are some Star Wars-themed expressions that contribute to the spirit and backstories of the land. [Read more…]
Disneyland Park’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens in a matter of days, and last evening, Disneyland President Josh D’Amaro shared a picture on his Instagram that is blowing. our. minds. It’s a sea of “inhabitants of Batuu” gathered for a cast member rally in Galaxy’s Edge, and it’s EPIC!
In the image we see hundreds of cast members in costumes designed to help them set the stage as Citizens of Batuu. (Click here to see Galaxy’s Edge costumes up close!) In the background: the impressive Millennium Falcon showcased in the land’s first major attraction Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. Further back, we spy a delivery shuttle on the top of the land’s fast casual dining spot Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo. The skyline of Black Spire Outpost features jagged rock outcroppings, while buildings show the wear-and-tear of galactic life.
Yeah, we want to go to there. 😉
Walt Disney World is experiencing a lot of growth, and we’re not just talking about the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, which will occur on August 29!
Indeed, Disney World is growing in many different ways, and by 2021 — just two years from now — our vacations to the World might look very different.
Let’s take a look at the changes coming to Disney World and what they might mean for you and your visit!
