Guide to Disney’s Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge at Hollywood Studios

Disney’s Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge is an experience unlike any other! While there are amazing rides, food, and shopping the biggest change is an immersive experience. This land encompasses more Disney cast members than ever before just to provide an experience that makes you feel like you are on the planet Batuu. While the Star Wars attractions in Hollywood Studios are considered “off planet”, Batuu is known as “on-planet” being the marketplace of the people in the universe who don’t want to be found. You can also take part in the immersive Star Wars Data App or build your own Droid that allows you to interact with the land. Plus, last-minute missions and escapes can happen at a moment’s notice, so be on the lookout for Stormtroopers and be ready. Will you be part of the Resistance or helping Darth Vader with the First Order? Impromptu experiences await. Here’s everything to look forward to.

What is Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge?

Located in Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World, Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge is located at the Black Spire Outpost. Think of a secret hideaway for the outlaws of space. This land combines restaurants, shops, and rides along with interactive experiences. Beware of the Stormtroopers, they’re always on the lookout for trouble. 

Star Wars characters from the movies are also part of this new land. These characters run the gift shop counters, the quick service, and the line queue, as well as walking around as part of the experience. Immersive to the max.  You could also see Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, BB-8, and Chewbacca checking out the droids, or even shpopping. And of course, a variety of folks from the First Order are bound to show up, so be on the lookout. Note that not all Star Wars rides are inside Galaxy’s Edge. This is because the Star Wars Experiences in Hollywood Studios combine both on-planet ( Galaxy’s Edge) and off-planet ( rest of Hollywood Studios) experiences.

Millennium Falcon is available as a stand by line ride, or can be added to your Disney Genie+ selections.

Rumors around town are that we will also see Batuu in Star Wars Episode IX. The whole feeling of Batuu has been likened to the real-world Marrakesh. Bustling, filled with people who are on their way to something. Adventurers, smugglers, rogue traders, and people who are hiding from the First Order.
