Top 10 Things to Do in Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

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.

blue and green milk in Galaxy's Edge

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.

droid depot

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.

Oga's Cantina
Oga’s Cantina

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.

Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo Menu

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.

Complete Guide to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Food and Beverage Offerings

From the Disney Parks Blog:

Photo: Disney

With Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge on the horizon, Disney’s creative teams have been hard at work crafting the innovative food and beverage offerings that guests will experience when they visit the Black Spire Outpost. The Disney Parks Blog recently shared all of the menus in a Guide to the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge food and beverage offerings for these highly-anticipated lands coming to Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort this year.

Located on the never-before-seen planet of Batuu, the Black Spire Outpost (which is the name of the village in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge) serves as a remote trading port for smugglers, traders, and adventurers traveling the Outer Rim and Wild Space. A once busy crossroads on the galaxy’s edge now surpassed by the rise of hyperspace travel, the infamous village is a thriving port for those traveling between the frontier and uncharted space. The outpost also serves as a home to those who prefer to stay out of the mainstream, as well as a safe haven for those avoiding the reach of the First Order.

Photo: Disney

In the Star Wars galaxy, due to the remote nature of the planet, Batuu has a deep history of “farm to table” style whole foods with cooking traditions that have been passed down generation to generation, influencing the dishes found in the outpost. Each dish tells a story of the local culture, drawing inspiration from unique spices, ingredients, and cooking techniques. 

Weary travelers can take refuge in Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo or even grab a specialty cocktail in the outpost’s favorite watering hole, Oga’s Cantina. They can also grab a quick bite (or some Blue Milk!) at one of the stands located in the Black Spire Outpost.

Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo

A multi-purpose transport shuttle docked on top of a large hangar will beckon guests into Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo, a designated location for traveling food shuttles. Docked in the hangar is Tugg’s Grub, a “traveling diner for diners traveling” run by Chef Strono “Cookie” Tuggs. In high-demand for his cooking skills, he moves from site to site in a modified Sienar-Chall Utilipede Transport that can be transformed into a mobile kitchen and restaurant. His travels across the galaxy allow him to fill his pantry with exotic ingredients which he uses to make new and unusual dishes inspired by his time on Takodana.

Oga’s Cantina

Run by the boss of the Black Spire Outpost underworld, Oga Garra, Oga’s Cantina is an establishment that attracts some of the most interesting and disreputable characters in the galaxy. Very little is known about Oga herself. She’s not usually at the Cantina, preferring to collect payments remotely, and most of the locals have never laid eyes on her before. Her patrons come from across the galaxy to sample the famous concoctions offered here. These beverages are created with unique ingredients using “otherworldly” methods. In addition, Oga regularly procures unique shipments of beers, cider, and wines. While partaking in these thirst-quenching concoctions, guests can enjoy the musical stylings of DJ R-3X (also known as REX), the former Starspeeder 3000 pilot droid we first met in Star Tours. He’s reinvented himself as the cantina’s resident DJ and is quirky and talkative as ever, just trying to do his best on the job.

Four Dining Options, Five Stores, and More Planned for Batuu at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

Photo: Disney Parks Blog

Disney has finally announced the dates that we’ve all been waiting for! Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will open at Disneyland Park on May 31 and at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on August 29, 2019!

Batuu is the home of Black Spire Outpost, the location you will visit when you arrive at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, which has become a haven for the galaxy’s most colorful — and notorious — characters.

There will be several locations in Black Spire Outpost to satisfy the appetites of most rogue adventurers:

Photo: Disney Parks Blog

Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo – A multi-purpose transport shuttle docked on top of the large hangar will beckon guests into this fast-casual restaurant, a designated location for traveling food shuttles. Chef Strono “Cookie” Tuggs is in much demand for his culinary skills, so he moves from site to site in a modified Sienar-Chall Utilipede-Transport that becomes a mobile kitchen and restaurant – like an intergalactic “food truck.” His travels across the galaxy allow him to fill his pantry with exotic ingredients he uses to make new and unusual dishes inspired by the fare he created during his time working for Maz Kanata in her castle on Takodana. Now, “Cookie” is proud to share his cuisine with visitors at Tuggs’ Grub, a “traveling diner for diners traveling.”

Cookie’s food shuttle, now docked on the roof of the hangar bay, has lowered a series of pods into the hangar, carrying precious cargo – Chef Tuggs’ finest ingredients gathered from across the galaxy. Situated inside Docking Bay 7, other pods from Black Spire Outpost provide other produce, provisions, and equipment for all incoming freighters to the hangar. Guests may choose to dine indoors in the hangar bay or outside in a shaded courtyard.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will feature innovative and creative food and beverage offerings that enhance the immersive storytelling of the various dining establishments located in Black Spire Outpost. Throughout the outpost, guests will encounter familiar flavors but sometimes with unexpected and surprising colors and textures. The unique presentation takes Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo to the next galaxy.

One of the new dishes that you’ll be able to try at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo is the Ithorian Garden Loaf, a plant-based “meatloaf” that comes served with roasted vegetable mash, seasonal vegetables, and mushroom sauce.

Another hearty option at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo is the Smoked Kaadu Ribs. These country sticky pork ribs come with a unique blueberry corn muffin and cabbage slaw.

Ronto Roasters – A recycled podracing engine fires up a spit of exotic meats, meticulously turned by a former smelter droid, 8D-J8. Guests can even sample some of the tasty Ronto fare.

Milk Stand – The place to go to get your farm-fresh blue milk or green milk, direct from Bubo Wamba Family Farms.

Kat Saka’s Kettle – One of the many street market stalls, this grain vendor sells the ever-popular Outpost Mix (sweet and salty popcorn snack with a hint of spice).

For those looking to purchase in-story Star Wars merchandise and rare finds from across the galaxy, you need to look no further than our many different Outpost stores and market stalls.

Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities – For those in the know, Dok-Ondar is the Ithorian you seek for selling and buying rare and uniquely-valued items from across the galaxy and spanning all eras.

Savi’s Workshop – Handbuilt Lightsabers – Guests come to the workshop to meet with the Gatherers – a secretive group of people who have dedicated their lives to restoring balance in the galaxy by passing on their knowledge of Jedi lore and the Force. The workshop Master guides guests to customize and build their own unique lightsabers, and instructs them on the ways of the Jedi.

Droid Depot – Visitors to Mubo’s workshop can choose parts and construct their own individual astromech droids to accompany them on their journey, and then take them home with them.

First Order Cargo – A spaceport hangar bay serves as the temporary base and landing spot for the First Order. First Order officers have brought in crates of gear, uniforms and other supplies to win the hearts and minds of locals and visitors to Black Spire Outpost.

Resistance Supply – Resistance members and local sympathizers oversee a makeshift stall that supplies Resistance uniforms, pins, badges, hats, helmets, jackets, maps, tools, training supplies, food rations and other items.

There are also several market stalls which sell a variety of merchandise such as:

  • Toydarian Toymaker (toys)
  • Creature Stall (interesting critters that you can take home with you)
  • Black Spire Outfitters (clothing)
