Visiting Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

LAST UPDATE: 10/19/21

Jump to:

On Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, guests are recruited to meet General Leia Organa at a secret base. Along the way, they will be captured by a First Order Star Destroyer. With the help of some heroes of the Resistance, they break out and must escape the Star Destroyer, protect the secret base, and stay one step ahead of Kylo Ren. During a portion of the experience, guests will race through a Star Destroyer in a trackless ride vehicle featuring an onboard droid that reacts to its surroundings.

On Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, you get to take control of the Millennium Falcon as a pilot, engineer or gunner during a special mission. How well you execute your task affects the success of the mission.

To immerse yourself further in the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge experience, you can use the Star Wars: Datapad (available through the Play Disney Parks mobile app) and choose to support the Resistance or the First Order by selecting new jobs as you move around Galaxy’s Edge. While exploring the surrounding area and Black Spire Outpost, use your “scanning” tool to discover new items that you can collect or trade with fellow galactic travelers, as well as using your “hacking,” “tuning” and “translation” tools to explore the land. Other activities available include helping Hondo Ohnaka sort cargo during an in-queue game at Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, or joining in “Outpost Control” to show where your loyalties lie.

There are also various Star Wars themed quick dining food and beverage options available in Galaxy’s Edge, as well as shopping and entertainment. There is no table-service restaurant, but there is a table-service lounge: Oga’s Cantina. For a fee, you can also build your own droid at Droid Depot, or build your own lightsaber at Savi’s Workshop

Below are some important details to know if you are planning a trip.

Please note: all information below is subject to change. Capacity for the parks, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and its experiences is limited. Access to the park, land and experiences may be restricted or unavailable depending on guest demand and other factors.

Visiting Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Walt Disney World (Florida)

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Valid theme park admission to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and a theme park reservation are required to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Capacity is limited, so when crowds are forecast to be very high, they may implement a same-day reservation (“boarding group”) system for either the land or for certain experiences.

Park hopping is available from 2:00 pm until park closing. Read more about how Park Hopper currently works.

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance has a regular line or you can book an Individual (Paid) Lightning Lane Selection

If Disney brings back a virtual queue for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, it will be accessible via the My Disney Experience app. Read more about how to join a virtual queue.

Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run

Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run has a regular line or you can book a Genie+ Lightning Lane reservation if you upgrade your ticket to add Disney Genie+ .

Oga’s Cantina

Oga’s Cantina is a great themed bar, a little like the one Luke and Obi-Wan visit near the beginning of the original Star Wars (A New Hope). Oga’s has very limited capacity. Reservations are required and can be made up to 60 days in advance. Please note: guests at Oga’s Cantina are limited to 45 minutes per party. 

Droid Depot

Droid Depot is an experience where guests get to make their own custom remote-control R2 unit, with custom pieces and decorations that make your specific droid one-of-a-kind. Reservations for Droid Depot can be made up to 60 days in advance for the build-your-own droid experience. Reservations are not technically required, but unless you visit during very low season, a reservation is highly recommended.  

Savi’s Workshop

Savi’s Workshop is an experience where guests can build their own lightsaber, selecting components at least partially through a mystical “Jedi ritual.” The final saber can have unique decorative elements and one of several different blade colors. Reservations for Savi’s Workshop can be made up to 60 days in advance for the build-your-own lightsaber workshop. Reservations are not technically required, but unless you visit during very low season, a reservation is highly recommended.

Costume Policy

Walt Disney World’s current costume policy is in effect in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Costumes may not be worn by guests age 14 years or older. Appropriate Disney bounding – dressing in outfits inspired by favorite characters – is permitted.

Visiting Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland (California)

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is in Disneyland Park. Valid theme park admission and a theme park reservation for Disneyland Park are required to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

On any given day, Disneyland may implement a same-day reservation system for the Galaxy’s Edge area. Guests will not have to wait in line, but can visit other parts of Disneyland until it’s their turn to enter Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is subject to capacity limits, and having an assigned reservation time will not guarantee entrance to the land.

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance

There is a virtual queue for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, accessible only via the Disneyland app. Read more about how to join a virtual queue. There is no standby line; you must join the virtual queue. You can only join the virtual queue once per day. Please note: joining a boarding group does not guarantee access to Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. 

You cannot be in a boarding group for Web Slingers: A Spider-Man Adventure and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at the same time and will need to enter those virtual queues one at a time.

Sometime in Fall 2021, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is expected to have a Lightning Lane, with reservations available through individual (paid) ride selection

Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run

Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run has a regular line. Sometime in Fall 2021, Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run is expected to have a Lightning Lane, with reservations available through Genie+

If the boarding group system is being used for Galaxy’s Edge, Smuggler’s Run tends to develop long lines at the beginning of each group time slot as everyone makes a mad rush for it. About an hour later or so, the line settles down to a more reasonable level. You may want to walk around Galaxy’s Edge first and enjoy the atmosphere, then do Smuggler’s Run after the first hour.

If Disneyland is not using boarding groups for Galaxy’s Edge, it will probably be a good idea to get on Smuggler’s Run early, as the lines for it will probably look more like the lines for other premium attractions like Space Mountain or Splash Mountain.

Oga’s Cantina

Oga’s Cantina is a great themed bar, a little like the one Luke and Obi-Wan visit near the beginning of the original Star Wars (A New Hope). Oga’s has very limited capacity. Reservations are highly recommended, but not required and can be made up to 60 days in advance. A valid credit card number is required to make a reservation and there is a $10 no-show fee per person for Oga’s Cantina if you don’t check in for your reservation. If you don’t want to make a reservation in advance, you can put your name on the mobile dine walk-up list on the day you are in Galaxy’s Edge (if available). Please note: guests at Oga’s Cantina are limited to 45 minutes per party.
