Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios has been transformed into a galaxy far, far away…
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge has officially opened at the Orlando theme park, just four months after it premiered at Disneyland in Anaheim, California.
The new land invites visitors to take a journey to Batuu, a remote planet on the edge of the galaxy’s Outer Rim Territories.
Black Spire Outpost
When guests walk into the Star Wars-inspired area, they’ll be stepping into Black Spire Outpost, “an infamous port for smugglers, traders and adventurers wishing to avoid any unnecessary… entanglements with the First Order.”
From meeting their favorite characters to eating unusual food, this is the home base for all the action and adventure guests will go on.
“The fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy” can finally be taken for a spin in the Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run attraction.
Guests who climb aboard the Millennium Falcon will be tasked with the responsibilities of a pilot, a gunner or an engineer.
The engaging experience takes visitors through one of three unique scenarios that respond to their actions in real time.
Food & Beverages
Kick back and enjoy a cold one at Oga’s Cantina, a jazzy spot all about exotic beverages in unique vessels. Sip on a Bespin Fizz or Fuzzy Tauntaun while listening to tunes from DJ R-3X.
Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo
Run by Chef Strono “Cookie” Tuggs, this multi-purpose transport shuttle is a mobile kitchen and restaurant that offers breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Traveling diners can enjoy braised shaak roast, fried Endorian tip-yip, yobshrimp noodle salad and much more. The diner offers allergy-friendly options for those that struggle with: egg, milk, peanuts, soy, tree nuts, gluten/wheat and fish/shellfish.
This barbeque pit draws its flames from the engine of a podracer, where guests can order grilled meat on the go.
Kat Saka’s Kettle
This colorful snack shop offers speciality popcorn that’s a combination of sweet, savory and spicy.
Probably the most iconic drink in all of Star Wars history will be found there: Bantha Milk. The blue beverage from “A New Hope” is joined by it’s green milk sibling from “The Last Jedi.” Whichever color guests pick, there are non-alcoholic and alcoholic versions of both.
Guests can channel their inner Jedi or Sith powers at Savi’s Workshop to handbuild their own lightsabers. There are four available hilt themes: Peace and Justice, Power and Control, Protection and Defense, and Elemental Nature.
Visitors get to construct their own astromech droids by picking pieces off a conveyor belt. The droids, which can also be bought pre-built, will interact with elements throughout Black Spire Outpost.
