5 Can’t Miss Things at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

Summer is just around the corner, which means it’s time to start planning your most magical vacation yet! With Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opening on May 31st, you won’t want to miss out on the universe’s biggest event. Because of this, we’ve partnered with Get Away Today to share the five can’t miss things at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. So, grab your lightsabers and let’s get started!

1. Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run

As part of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, guests will be able to experience two new attractions. The first attraction is Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run. Here, guests will be able to climb aboard and even pilot the galaxy’s most legendary ship. As you travel throughout space to accomplish your mission, each person will have a different role; for example, you can choose between being a pilot, engineer or a gunner. How you perform within the ride will influence how Disney Cast Members will interact with you throughout the land. So, just make sure you don’t mess up or crash anything — or else you might have a bounty placed on you!

2. Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance

While not a lot of details have been released about this attraction, we do know that Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will be the most interactive ride to ever debut at a Disney park. During this ride, you’ll be able to battle against the First Order on a rescue mission gone wrong. With new ride technology and never before seen animatronics, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is an attraction you won’t want to miss!

3. Oga’s Cantina

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is set on a forgotten planet called Battu. While Battu was once a popular stop for galactic adventurers, it’s now become obsolete thanks to light speed travel. However, its residents still know how to have fun! At Oga’s Cantina, guests will be able to interact with the galaxy’s most interesting characters. In addition to hearing catchy music and reveling in the unique atmosphere, visitors will also be able to order food and drinks (yes, even blue milk).

4. New Merchandise

While Star Wars merchandise has gained popularity over the past few years, you’ve never seen merchandise quite like the items at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Here, you’ll be able to grab unique merchandise from a Toydarian. While we’re not sure what exactly you’ll be able to purchase, these items are sure to be out of this world!

5. Character Appearances

In addition to all of the fun, guests will also be able to meet some of their favorite Star Wars characters from the legendary franchise. So far, only BB-8 and Chewbacca have been confirmed. However, we have a feeling there will be lots of interactive experiences from the galaxy’s heroes and enemies.

As you can see, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge has something in store for everyone — Jedis and Wookies alike!
