Heading to Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios or Disneyland to try out all things Galaxy’s Edge? Here’s our 5 must-do’s for a day at Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge. Complete with rides, snacks and experiences to try!
Batuu in both Disneyland and Walt Disney World are almost exactly the same in both parks with the exception of slightly lighter building colors to combat Florida sun and optional alcohol at Walt Disney World, with Rum in the blue milk and Tequila in the green milk. If you find you need more than these 5 tips, or plan on doing multiple days, we’ve written a guide to Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge to help.
Try the Blue and Green Milk in Galaxy’s Edge
While the blue and green milk may have gotten wildly mixed reviews, and likely won’t become a staple in your Disney snack routine, we highly recommend tasting one(or both!) of these just to get a taste of what the rage is all about. We prefer the blue milk, however found that mixing them made them both more tolerable.
Try different roles on Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run
The newest ride at Galaxy’s Edge is a ride designed for 6, with 2 assigned to each role. This fully interactive ride includes 2 pilots, 2 gunners and 2 engineers. We were lucky enough to try this ride in all three roles and can confidently say that not only does your role make a difference in your experience, but so does your team. We recommend trying at least 2 different roles if you’re able so you can really enjoy what the Imagineers created for you in this ride.
Visit Oga’s Cantina
Oga’s Cantina is an experience that you’ll either love or hate. It’s loud, it’s crowded and it looks like a scene right out of a Star Wars movie. While it’s really mostly a bar, Oga’s does also offer non-alcoholic drinks and concoctions as well as a couple snacks and breakfast items. It feels like a huge party, with it’s very own robotic DJ and bartenders and waitstaff that occasionally break out into song. Although we do list Oga’s as a must do, it’s also important to know that you’ll likely need reservations to get in, that most of the cantina is standing room only, that you will be seated with strangers and it can be a bit pricey. This is one place that you are paying a bit more for the experience than the actual drinks, but it’s a fun experience nonetheless.
Visit the Droid Depot
Even if you can’t stomach the cost of building your very own droid, you are allowed to go watch the process, which is fun in itself! The droid parts come down on a conveyor belt where you are able to select which pieces you want for your droid. Once you have selected the parts you want, you can then assemble your droid and watch him come to life!
Everything in Galaxy’s Edge is immersive. From the character interactions to the cast member costumes to the signage and even the restrooms, every little detail has been though of in Galaxy’s Edge. Although it might be tempting to continuously post your experience to Instagram or be glued to your phone the whole time, this is one instance we recommend putting down your phone and taking it all in. There’s so much to see and do and we’d hate for you to miss something because you are looking down at your phone!
Rise of the Resistance
We’ll be sharing tips and tricks to maximize your Rise of the Resistance Experience. But in the meantime, you’re going to have to stand in line with the rest of the crazies outside the park gates ( think 5 or 6am folks) to catch a boarding pass on this ride. Worth it? ABSOLUTELY! Heck, you can always go back to your resort and sleep after you check in and get your place in line!
