And we were right! So, let’s travel to a galaxy far, far away to check out Disney World’s Oga’s Cantina menu!
Happy weekend! We’ve been hard at work in the parks scoping out all the latest news for you, which is compiled here! First, a few things to remember…
The 2019 Epcot Food and Wine Festival kicks off August 29 and we’re covering it all! Did you see the menus that are out now? See every single Food and Wine Festival MENU and some FOOD PHOTOS as well — here!
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is now OPEN at Disneyland and will open August 29 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios! Check out all our Disneyland Galaxy’s Edge coverage to start planning for Disney World (the two lands will be virtually identical!)!
Now — on to the news!
We have a lot to share with you this week, so let’s jump right in…
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!
Of course, this morning we headed to the park bright and early to experience the land again and to check out the crowds and the crazy. Let’s go!
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is officially open in Disneyland, so you know what that means: TONS of new and exciting merchandise… and it’s still rolling in!
Just yesterday the Milk Stand in Galaxy’s Edge at long last began selling the souvenir Milk Sipper — which you can see here. Another highly anticipated item (ever since its announcement in April) is the DJ R3X Funko Pop! which is now available exclusively in Disneyland!
The reservation-only period for Disneyland’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge ends in four days (!!!) on June 23 and park officials are gearing up for the huge crowds they anticipate on June 24th.
To help us all prepare for the land’s general opening, Disneyland has given us some beneficial planning tips! Let’s PUNCH IT!
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.
Know the Lingo!
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…]
