‘Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge’: See What Awaits You in the Disney Theme Parks

     February 28, 2019

star-wars-galaxys-edge-detailsThis year, fans all around the world will be able to live out their Star Wars dreams when Disney unveils their new theme park, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Set on an outpost on the fictional planet Batuu, the immersive experience will allow Star Wars fans to fly the Millennium Falcon, participate in the Resistance (or work for the First Order if that’s more your speed), and explore all-new canon adventures in the galaxy far, far away. But the biggest draw that Galaxy’s Edge has going is that visitors will get to create their own unique adventures set against the Star Wars backdrop, making memories that will last lifetimes. We’re only just starting to see what the park has to offer, but new details emerged today.

As the Disney Parks Blog reveals, the themed land has a lot for Star Wars fans to enjoy when Galaxy’s Edge opens in Disneyland this Summer, followed by a fall opening for Disney World. The blog has done a fantastic job of keeping readers (and visitors) apprised of the goings on at all the parks, but with a special focus on the new and highly anticipated arrival of Galaxy’s Edge. That trend continues as they share more about Batuu and the Black Spire Outpost attraction where guests will visit upon arrival. So far today, they shared a bit about the restaurants and merchant shops you’ll be able to frequent later this year.

If it’s food you’re looking for, Galaxy’s Edge has a variety of dining establishments to suit visitors’ many and varied tastes:

  • Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo – “Chef Strono “Cookie” Tuggs has traveled throughout the galaxy following his longtime gig as the chef at Maz Kanata’s castle on Takodana and brings exotic flavors and unusual dishes to his traveling diner Tuggs’ Grub.”
  • 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).”

And it wouldn’t be a Disney theme park without the opportunity to buy some signature merchandise. The interesting wrinkle here is that everything you buy on Batuu is tailor-made for the outpost planet, not part of the larger brand of Disney gear. Here’s where you can get your hands on some truly unique swag:

  • 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’s more merch to be found at smaller market stalls scattered throughout the outpost as well:

  • Toydarian Toymaker (toys)
  • Creature Stall (interesting critters that you can take home with you)
  • Black Spire Outfitters (clothing)
  • The Jewels of Bith (accessories and other trinkets to treasure)

The Disney Parks Blog will be sharing more info on the food and beverage offerings and Disney cast members’ costumes throughout the day, so be sure to follow along at their site! And for more of our previous and continuing coverage of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, be sure to revisit these write-ups:
