The Place to go in 2019? Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

The Place to go in 2019? Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

Travel to another galaxy at Disneyland Park, when Star Wars: Galaxy Edge opens this summer.

Live out your own intergalactic adventure at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge on planet Batuu, in one of Disneyland Park’s largest expansions ever. Feel like you’re in a galaxy far, far away at this mysterious station full of all kinds of interesting characters, alien languages and ancient antiquities, not to mention both the starship Millennium Falcon and, opening later this year, an adventurous transport ride, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.

This immersive setting, with ultra-detailed scenery and the latest ride technologies, will have you interacting with the inhabitants of Batuu, such as alien toy makers and crime boss Oga Garra, a cantina owner, with whom you can sample some of the local beverages and other curious concoctions. You’re not just a visitor though, you’ll be part of the story and customize your experience from personalizing your own lightsaber* according to different themes at Savi’s Workshop or building your own droid at the Droid Depot. 

Such experiences aren’t your everyday kind, and neither is the main attraction, Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, which is the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy. Pull back on the throttle level and make the jump to hyperspace. Are you ready to be the pilot, gunner or engineer? In this flight simulator, you are responsible for the craft, while a galactic adventure unfolds around you.

So, raise a glass of Blue Milk, because the time has come to have an adventure in a galaxy far, far away at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
