Buuut, we’re hopping over to a galaxy far, far away to take a look at everything happening over at the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser near Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
We know that Christmas merchandise has taken over Disney World, but some people would love to find Star Wars items under their trees this year (AKA us).
And, there’s nothing less than parks-full of Star Wars merchandise right now with Endor and The Mandalorian Spirit Jerseys, new “scrap metal” for customizable lightsaber parts, and apparel and accessories galore from Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
While some of us may have a pretty expansive collection of Minnie Ears, Star Wars fans might have a growing stock of lightsabers for BOTH the Light and the Dark Sides.
Although you can head to places like Savi’s Workshop in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to build your own, custom lightsaber, other places in Batuu like Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities feature pre-made Legacy Lightsabers instead. These non-customizable lightsabers allow guests to become one with the Force carrying around the sabers of heroes and villains like Kylo Ren, Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Mace Windu and more!
Bright Suns, traveler! This summer Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge celebrated its first anniversary! It is impossible to fathom — it feels like just yesterday that we were walking through the gates to The Black Spire Outpost for the first time. We get chills just thinking about it!
Traditionally the first-anniversary gift is paper, but we always find it best to celebrate with something of the food or drink variety. Disney Parks Blog is here with an assist. They’ve published the recipe for the famous, non-alcoholic, Cliff Dweller.
Savi’s Workshop is an immersive experience in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. It’s here that guests can build their very own custom lightsaber with hilts, kyber crystals, and other elements of their choice.
When Walt Disney World reopened in July, some attractions remained closed. The Savi’s Workshop building reopened, but the immersive show qualities were removed from the attraction. Guests could buy a lightsaber then enter the workshop to take a look around. It was announced recently that Savi’s will officially reopen on September 20th with some of the immersive qualities we experienced prior to closing. Today, reservations for the Savi’s are available to book on the Disney World website!
Welcome back, DFB friends! We’re here with another What’s New at Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
And, we’ve got plenty of merchandise updates to share with you, so let’s dive right on in!
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Hollywood Studios is a mystical place filled with unique dining and merchandise offerings. Here, you’re truly transported to another planet (the planet of Batuu, if you’re wondering). You can sip on Blue Milk, pilot the Millennium Falcon, and even create your own droid.
And since you’re being transported to a new planet, of course, Disney wants guests to be able to use that planet’s form of currency, if they’d like. When Galaxy’s Edge opened, guests could purchase a gold Batuuan Spira metal gift card. This was popular and sold out quickly at both Disney World and Disneyland. Yesterday, we shared that a silver version of this gift card was on the way.
Disney World and Disneyland have LOTS of construction planned for multiple attractions and experiences around the parks over the next few years (we can’t wait to see the new The Princess and the Frog ride).
Construction has just started to pick up in the parks after the closures, with other projects being postponed until later dates. However, Disney continues to be one step ahead in planning the next big thing coming to the parks. And, there might be an entirely new line of space cocktails that could come with the creation of Disney’s next bar!
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is not only a Star Wars fan’s dream, but the lands in Disney World and Disneyland have so many gorgeous details.
If you happen to be one of the Walt Disney World Annual Passholders who currently has a Disney Park Pass Reservation to visit Disney’s Hollywood Studios in the next few weeks, then you will have the chance to take advantage of a pretty great discount!
