Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge Details

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, it’s still a Must Try! While this 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. While this does make the list, it could be a one and done experience for you. There are a lot of variables to this ride experience that can make or break the fun. But again, you should do this at least once.

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. they also serve 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. And that most of the cantina is standing room only. Or that you will be seated with strangers. PLUS, 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. And again, a must-do at least once.

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! While the Visit is a MUST DO the actual purchase may be something you can just skip. Mainly because while your little droid will interact with Galaxy’s Edge it won’t come alive elsewhere and may dim the glory of the purchase.

Galaxy’s Edge Stuff You Can Skip?

Ok, so a quick rundown of stuff we think you can skip? Buying the Droid at the Droid Depot. Building the 200 Dollar Lightsaber. Note, this isn’t the equivalent of the buying your want at Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Because, you see, there the wand picks you! Here you just assemble the thing on your own. And then have to lug it around all day. Through all those security lines!

Details, Details…

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 thought 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. The only reason you should be on the phone is to play the Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge game. That way you can really get into the experience. 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!

  • What do you think about the people who say that Galaxy’s edge is not driving attendance the way Disney thought it would be? There are multiple videos on Youtube that says Galaxy’s edge is a flop…

  • Hey Audrey! We really think it’s completely a matter of opinion. We love Galaxy’s Edge in that it is completely immersive and we also love that anyone can enjoy it even if they aren’t a huge Star Wars fan. That being said, ironically we also know a lot of people who are staying away simply because they are afraid it will be too crowded. Others don’t want to commit to it just yet because Rise of the Resistance isn’t opening until December. I think it’s difficult to decide whether or not it’s a flop right now since it’s not yet complete. And for every person on YouTube saying it’s a flop, there’s always someone who is saying it’s a complete win on Disney’s part. Disney also decided to open it at the beginning of what is normally known as low season, so that could also be a factor in the attendance being lower than expected. It’ll be interesting to see what happens after December!
