Hey, y’all! Last week I went to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge [Star Wars Land] at Disneyland. It was the coolest experience ever, and now that it’s open to the public, I wanted to do a recap of it for anyone thinking of going!
We had a bigger group of us, so we did not eat inside the land or do the Droid Depot or Savi’s Workshop Light Saber experience [but I want to build a droid SO BAD. Next time for sure!]
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge
Black Spire Outpost Shopping Area
When you first enter the land after passing Rise Of The Resistance [ride opening later this year], the first building you come upon is the Black Spire Outpost shopping area. This is a huge shopping area with awesome specialty shops including toys, Star Wars inspired clothes and tons of other items. This is also where the Outpost Popcorn is [a popcorn stand with sweet and spicy popcorn. I didn’t try any but I’ve heard it’s like fruity pebbles with a twist!] and Ronto Roasters [a quick service restaurant].
We did most of our souvenir shopping here. A lot of the stuff offered for sale inside of here isn’t available anywhere else in the park.
First Order Base
After you move passed the Black Spire Outpost and the Droid Depot, you hit the First Order Base. This area was so awesome because Kilo Ren and the Storm Troopers walk around and chat with people like it’s a normal day on a First Order Base. They were interrogating people and trying to get information on the Resistance. The entire experience was extremely immersive, but this was probably the coolest. One of our group members tried to get a selfie with the Storm Troopers and they kept avoiding the photos! Lol
This is also the area where you can grab Blue and Green Milk. These were good but definitely pricey at 7.99. They are milky but also like a slushie. It’s definitely a different flavor. The blue milk tastes closer to actual milk but I’d say the green milk is a fruitier flavor.
The Millenium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run & Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities
As you pass the First Order area, you head to the Millenium Falcon [this is also where the bar Oga’s Cantina is. When we went the wait time was like 60 minutes so we decided to pass]. This is where the Millenium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run ride is. Y’all. This ride is SO COOL. The line is insanely immersive you walk through Hondo Ohnaka’s business. In the end, you end up inside the Millenium Falcon where you can take photos and you get assigned your job during the ride. The jobs are Pilot, Gunner, and Engineer. The ride is extremely immersive, and as you pilot the Millenium Falcon, your actions directly impact how things turn out within the ride. If you crash land, as you walk out the Falcon sparks and makes noises like it’s broken.
This shop was by far the coolest! There are so many cool collectibles in this shop including Kyber crystals [the crystals that power light sabers] and different First Order relics. It is a pricier store, but they are all definitely collectors items in here.
We went during the reservation period the first month it was open, so I only got four hours to explore the land. I wish I had so much more! If you enjoyed this post, click HERE for all of my other Disneyland posts!
