Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is now open at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Star Wars fans of all ages will love visiting the Black Spire Outpost on Batuu, the “long forgotten planet on the edge of the galaxy, between the Unknown Regions and Wild Space.” There are two new attractions, shopping, dining, and more experiences waiting for you in this new land so we wanted to share ten things to do in Galaxy’s Edge to help you prepare for your visit.
Pilot the Millenium Falcon: The headline attraction in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is Millenium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run. You can actually pilot the iconic spaceship as you take on a mission from Hondo Ohnaka. Other necessary jobs on the mission include engineer and gunner.
Tip: Take advantage of the single rider line, if you are able to be split up from the rest of your party to enjoy the experience at a significantly reduced wait time.
Build a Light Saber at Savi’s Workshop: You can build a custom lightsaber and then bring it to life with a kyber crystal at Savi’s Workshop. You can choose from one of four themes- peace and justice; power and control; elemental nature; or protection and defense. These are not inexpensive souvenirs though at $199.99 plus tax each.
Tip: There are less expensive build your own lightsaber options at Tatooine Traders, the gift shop located at the exit of Star Tours, that is perfect for younger fans.
Try the Blue or Green Milk: Stop by the Milk Stand to try the blue milk and/or green milk. They are both plant based blends of coconut and rice milks. The blue milk is sweeter while the green milk is a little more flowery or citrusy. They are a little different if you are used to dairy milk, but each had a refreshingly unique flavor. Both the blue and green milks are also available with alcohol.
Tip: These are available as a snack credit on the dining plan and also now available through mobile order so you can save time waiting in line to order one.
Build a Droid at Droid Depot: Droid Depot offers you the chance to purchase and build your own remote controlled R-series and/or BB- series droid that will interact throughout the land. You’ll get to choose the four components required for your droid and then have the chance to assemble your droid and bring it to life. There are a variety of colors and designs you can choose from. Please note that Disney does only allow one guest to accompany the builder during the experience.
Tip: Special backpacks are available for purchase which are a great way to carry your droid throughout the land where it interacts as well as to transport your droid home, especially if you are flying and need to safely carry it through the airport.
Grab a Drink at Oga’s Cantina: You can find a variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic creations at Oga’s Cantina, one of the galaxy’s most infamous watering holes. Although the food items are quite limited, there is an extensive list of beverages to choose from. While you visit the cantina, you’ll also enjoy musical entertainment courtesy of DJ R-3X, which some of you may remember as a former pilot from the Star Tours attraction. Please note that Disney does limit each party to only a 45 minute experience in the cantina.
Tip: Although guests of all ages are welcome in Oga’s, the majority of the location is standing room only which may make it difficult to enjoy if you are traveling with little ones that will need to be held as strollers are not allowed inside.
Stop for Photo Opportunities: You have the opportunity to travel to another planet on the outer rim when you visit Batuu so don’t miss numerous photo opportunities throughout the land. You will find ships, fighters, speeders, droids, the infamous Falcon, and so much more that make for awesome photo opportunities which is sure to make all of your friends jealous of your travels.
Star Wars Characters: You never know who you’ll find from the Star Wars saga during your time Batuu while you’re exploring the land. We’ve seen Rey, Chewbacca, Kylo Ren, and stormtroopers. The characters roam throughout the land which offer more unpredictable and surprise interactions in addition to unique photos from the traditional character meet and greets.
Tip: If you do want a longer or more personal interaction or just posed photos, be sure to stop by Star Wars Launch Bay to find BB-8, Kylo Ren, and Chewbacca.
Eat at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo: Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo is the primary quick service dining location in Galaxy’s Edge. The menu does have some unique offerings including ribs, pot roast, fried chicken, and more in addition to two specialty, non-alcoholic beverages, moof juice and sour sarlacc. The spacious hangar also offers an outdoor seating area. We have a comprehensive list of the food and beverage options in Galaxy’s Edge here.
Tip: Take advantage of Disney’s mobile order service to bypass the long lines!
Pick up Souvenirs at Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities: You can find a wide variety of iconic Star Wars souvenirs in the Den of Antiquities. As the largest merchandise location in Batuu, you won’t want to miss this hidden den. You’ll find kyber crystals, light sabers, ancient tools, and other treasures that are sure to delight Star Wars fans of all ages.
Drink a Coca Cola beverage: Coca Cola designed specialty bottles just for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney Parks. You can pick up a thermal detonator inspired bottle of Coca Cola, Diet Coke, or Sprite throughout the land.
Tip: These are more expensive than the other bottles in the parks at $6 or just one snack credit on the dining plan!
We also recommend downloading the Play Disney Parks mobile app before your visit so you can enjoy additional interactive experiences throughout the land including translating languages from across the galaxy, interacting with droids, and discovering precious cargo.
Bonus: The second new attraction in Galaxy’s Edge, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, is scheduled to open at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on Thursday, December 5, 2019. This will be one of Disney’s most technologically advanced attractions yet as you join the Resistance in an epic battle against the First Order.
Please remember that reservations are accepted and strongly recommended for Oga’s Cantina, Droid Depot, and Savi’s Workshop up to 180 days in advance. However, walk ups may be welcome to enjoy these experiences, as well.

Follow these tips and you’ll leave the Disney World water parks relaxed and filled with enough memories to last you a lifetime.
Here are fourteen tips for visiting Disney World Water Parks!
1. Choose a Family Meeting Spot – If you’re spending the day with a group, it is always a good idea to choose a meeting spot or home base that everyone in your party can go back to throughout the day. Some of my favorite meeting spots include the Beachcomber Shacks and Getaway Glen Umbrellas at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon and the Polar Patios and Lodge Umbrellas at Disney’s Blizzard Beach. You can reserve any of these spaces by calling (407) WDW-PLAY or (407) 939-7529.
2. Stay Hydrated – At Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, there is beautiful weather almost all year long! Whether it’s summer or fall, it’s important to stay hydrated and drink lots of water. The Disney World water parks offer special refillable mugs for purchase that let you quench your thirst at any drink station throughout your day.
3. Eat ALL the Food – Both Disney’s Blizzard Beach and Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon have some seriously delicious menu items that you won’t want to miss. From chocolate-dipped key lime pie and guacamole flights to plant-based bratwurst sandwiches, there is something for everyone. Adults can also enjoy specialty drinks, beer and wine. My top picks? The Fish Tacos from Typhoon Tilly’s at Typhoon Lagoon, the Blizzard Burger from Lottawatta Lodge at Blizzard Beach and the mini donuts, which are available at both parks!
4. Pack Light – Packing up a beach bag with all the essentials can be a hassle, especially when you are visiting from out of state. One of the things guests love about the Disney World water parks is that you can rent towels and umbrellas for the day. That means less bulky items to carry and less laundry when you get back home – it’s a win-win! Pro tip: Walt Disney World Resort guests receive complimentary towels at the water parks.
5. Plan A Visit That Compliments Your Vacation Itinerary – The Disney World water parks make a great addition to any Disney vacation and can easily fit into your busy itinerary. Plan a full day at the water parks or visit for a few hours- the choice is yours! Personally, I love spending a full day at one of our water parks and ending the night at Disney Springs!
6. Use the Walt Disney World Bus Service – Staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel? Make sure to take advantage of the Walt Disney World Bus Service, a convenient and complementary way to get to and from the Disney World water parks. If you plan on driving yourself, there is complimentary parking.
7. Worry Less About Taking The Perfect Picture – Have you heard of Disney PhotoPass? Helping you capture professional photos of your vacation, Disney PhotoPass photographers let you focus on having fun and worry less about getting the perfect shot. If you do decide to take your own pictures, I recommend purchasing a waterproof bag to protect your phone and easily carry it around the park. You can find waterproof bags in Singapore Sal’s at Typhoon Lagoon and Beach Haus at Blizzard Beach. Make sure to share all your Disney Water Parks pictures using the hashtags, #DisneyWaterParks, #TyphoonLagoon and #BlizzardBeach.
8. Save With the Park Hopper Plus Ticket Option – In my option, the Park Hopper Plus Option is a MUST when planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. In addition to admission to multiple Disney theme parks in one day, the Park Hopper Plus Option also includes a visit to other iconic Disney venues such as both Disney World water parks and both miniature golf courses! It’s a great value, especially if you’re trying to see and do it all while you’re here.
9. Learn To Surf at Typhoon Lagoon – If you have ever wanted to learn how to surf or you are an experienced surfer who wants to catch some waves while you’re on vacation, make sure to go to Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon one morning. That’s where you can participate in surfing programs in state-of-the-art wave pool that creates the perfect wave every time and offers the perfect venue for surfing, no matter what your skill level. The best part? Classes take place before the park opens!
10. Wear Lots of Sunscreen – When you’re having fun, it’s easy to forget to put on sunscreen. Make sure to apply it multiple times throughout the day and spend time in the shade to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. You can purchase sunscreen in Singapore Sal’s at Typhoon Lagoon or Beach Haus at Blizzard Beach.
11. Meet Your Favorite Characters – The four theme parks aren’t the only places to meet your favorite Disney characters. You can spend time with Goofy at Disney’s Blizzard Beach or Lilo and Stich at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon during your next visit to the Disney World water parks.
12. Annual Pass – The Disney World Water Parks Annual Pass includes a year of admission to Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon and Disney’s Blizzard Beach and an endless amount of fun! If you plan on going to the Disney World Water Parks more than once in one year, you’ll definitely want to check this out.
13. Unplug From the Real World – The Disney World Water Parks make it easy for you to unplug and focus your attention on enjoying the moment and spending time with your friends and loved ones. If you like, you can easily rent a locker to securely keep all of your electronic devices out of mind and out of sight. A day of relaxation and fun awaits you!
14. Dress the Part – Part of the fun of visiting Walt Disney World Resort is the chance to incorporate your favorite Disney characters into your personal style. From towels and swimwear to clothing and thoughtful souvenirs, Blizzard Beach’s Beach Haus and Typhoon Lagoon’ Singapore Sal’s have everything you need for a Disney-inspired fashion moment at our water parks.
Bonus: If you’re visiting during the summer, be sure to consider H2O Glow Nights at Typhoon Lagoon. This special ticket event offers exclusive nighttime fun at the water park.

Disney recently announced a new “Beauty and the Beast”-inspired lounge coming to Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. Located on the second floor of the lobby, this re-imagined lounge will be called the Enchanted Rose Lounge and will celebrate the magic and romance of Disney’s popular live-action movie.
Featuring four unique spaces inspired by Belle and the Beast, you’ll find charm and elegance around every corner. The lounge includes a chandelier inspired by Belle’s flowing ball gown as well as a formal library that will showcase classical baroque designs and French furnishing. A garden room will take its inspiration from the enchanted forest surrounding the castle, and an outdoor patio will evoke the romance of Beast’s garden terrace.
Enchanted Rose Lounge will feature a delicious menu with a variety of shareable bites. Snack on an artisanal cheese selection with pine nut bread and raisins or enjoy an exquisite dish of white sturgeon caviar served with egg timbale, crème fraiche, and chives.
In addition, you could try the Mini Smoked Short Rib Sliders with glacier blue cheese and onion marmalade on brioche buns. Or if seafood is more your style, you can order the Espelette Pepper-Spiced Shrimp or Octopus a la Plancha with black olives, blistered tomatoes, and fingerling potatoes. There’s also the Crab and Gnocchetti Gratin, which comes with jumbo lump crab, gnocchetti sardi, robiola bosina mornay, and citrus breadcrumbs.
Other options include truffle fries as well as a house-made flatbread pizza featuring charred broccolini, seasonal mushrooms, fennel sausage, ricotta salata, and tomato confits.
On the beverage menu is a variety of beverages including cocktails and martinis as well as spirits, beer, cider and even a few non-alcoholic options for guests of all ages. Featured cocktails include beverages such as the Island Rose with grapefruit and rose vodka, lime, orgeat, pineapple, bitters, and rose water. You can also sip on the Lavender Fog (dry gin, crème de violette, English breakfast tea, vanilla, and cream) or the Garden Daisy (tequila, midori, lime, egg white, and cucumber). The lounge will also be pouring an extensive collection of wine and Champagne by the glass.
Non-alcoholic options include a Garden Cocktail (non-alcoholic spirit, lime juice, agave nectar, and soda) as well as the B&B (fresh-brewed iced tea, lemon, blueberry, and basil) and the Rosemary Cooler (Odwalla lemonade, vanilla, and rosemary).
