We’ve been exploring every inch of Batuu at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland over the last few out-of-this-world days. And today, the new land has officially opened to the public!
We have enjoyed scouring the galaxy to experience all that Black Spire Outpost has to offer so we could present you with honest reviews of the new land along with helpful tips so you can optimize your time.
From building a lightsaber at Savi’s Workshop, to eating a Ronto Wrap at Ronto Roasters, and even hacking Blue and Green Milk, this truly is a unique and very immersive experience. But, as many of you know, Disney also loves to focus on the small details as well as the BIG ONES (we’re looking at you, Millennium Falcon). So Star Wars fans… listen to this.
Believe it or not, the Galaxy’s Edge exclusive gift cards (YES, the gift cards!) are quite possibly one of the most unique items on offer!
Galaxy’s Edge gift cards are a metal chip etched with the symbol of Black Spire Outpost! It is made to look like Batuuan Spira, which is the ancient currency of Black Spire Outpost. (SO! COOL!)
Now… the minimum amount that can be loaded on the chip is $100.00. But honestly, after seeing it for ourselves we think that it’s so worth it. And if you’re planning on dropping some Galactic Credits during your time in Galaxy’s Edge anyway, then why not? Because after all, once it’s loaded, it works just like a regular gift card (and the text says it can be used “wherever the Disney Gift Card is accepted.”)
We suggest you purchase yours at the beginning of your day on the planet Batuu at a merchandise location like Droid Depot (that’s where we got ours) and use it as you experience the land. Then, once it’s empty, you’ll be left with a pretty rad souvenir.
To use it, all you have to do is scan it, much like a MagicBand (for Disney World folks) or Apple pay.
