Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is the largest single-themed land expansion at Disneyland. The land transports guests to a never-before-seen planet that is a remote trading port and one of the last stops before the unmapped outer reaches of space.

Galaxy's Edge is also known as the Black Spire Outpost, a crossroads on the far-flung planet of Batuu. Not long ago, the First Order showed up searching for something, although what that something is remains unknown. Even more recently, the Resistance set up camp in the wooded area of the Outpost and began, well... resisting.

The area has two main sections: The south end is where the Resistance is and this tree-lined area contains the entrance to the Rise of the Resistance attraction as well as a few well-known ships like an A-wing and an X-wing fighter. Leaving the forested area brings you to the shopping and dining area, where you find most of the inhabitants of the town. At the far north end of the Black Spire Outpost is the section controlled by the Red Fury, the 709th battalion of the First Order. There you will find a TIE Echelon fighter guarded by some aggressive stormtroopers.

When you are in Galaxy's Edge you are not on Earth, but on the planet of Batuu and in the middle of the Star Wars movies. Do not expect the inhabitants to discuss Terran problems, but do expect them to talk at length about the goings on of the Black Spire Outpost. In the Star Wars timeline, you are in between the events of Episode VIII: The Last Jedi and Episode IX: Rise of Skywalker.

Important Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge Information:

  • Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Disneyland opened to the public on May 31, 2019.
  • Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run opened with the land on May 31. The other ride, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, is scheduled to open at an unknown time in 2019.
  • FASTPASS and MaxPass will not be available for any attractions in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.
  • Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will not be open during Extra Magic Hours or Magic Mornings.

Getting Into Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge

Beginning on June 24, 2019 advance reservations will no longer be needed, but day-of reservations (which Disney calls "boarding passes" and "virtual queue") will be available after entering Disneyland. Therefore, getting to the park 2+ hours before opening would be recommended to get the earliest entry time.

To enter the virtual queue/obtain a boarding pass, open the official Disneyland app on your phone and look for the Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge status and access page on the app's main screen. Touch "Join Boarding Group" in the app and then you will be given a time and a designated entrance. You can also include other members of your party in this step (but keep in mind, park tickets of your entire party must be linked in the app in order to obtain a boarding passes). After obtaining your boarding pass you can explore the rest of Disneyland until it's your time to enter Galaxy's Edge. When your time arrives, you'll have 2 hours to enter Galaxy's Edge before your boarding pass becomes void. Once you're in the land there is no limit to how much time you can spend in it.

If you do not have access to a cell phone, you can use your park ticket to obtain a boarding group at FASTPASS kiosks at select attractions. Currently those attractions are: Haunted Mansion, Indiana Jones Adventure, Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, and Matterhorn Bobsleds.

Reservations for Oga's Cantina and Savi's Workshop

Reservations for Oga's Cantina and Savi's Workshop become available at 7 a.m. on the day of your visit, and can be made in the official Disneyland app, or Disneyland's website. These two locations are extremely popular and usually fill all of their reservation slots after less than 30 minutes, so be on your phone and ready and ready to go at 7. For Savi's Workshop, a pre-payment of $199.99 is required. One lightsaber can be built per a experience, and only 3 people (1 builder and 2 guests) may enter. Oga's Cantina requires a $10 deposit in order to secure a reservation. Deposits for both of these experiences are non-refundable, so if you miss your reservation, your money is gone.

Arriving at Disneyland for Galaxy's Edge

The Disneyland Resort parking situation is tricky. The Mickey and Friends parking garage is very useful but often fills to capacity, leaving you in the far-flung Toy Story lot. A new garage is under construction but will not be open until summer. For many, driving will be the only option, but we encourage you to leave much earlier than you would normally plan to, in case you get rerouted to the Toy Story lot and have to bus to the park.

If you want to drive and avoid the traffic risks, consider using a ride-share service like Lyft or Uber to get dropped off at one of the Disney hotels or any along the park-adjacent Harbor Boulevard.

Guest Costumes in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge

The costume rules will not be changed for Galaxy's Edge. The normal Disneyland costume restrictions will be in place, which means that adults will not be allowed in costumes. Children under 14 are allowed to dress up, but masks or long robes are not allowed. Weapons are not allowed, including lightsabers and blasters.

We will update this page as more details are revealed. May the Force be with us all.

Shopping in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

In the heart of the Black Spire Outpost sits a Marrakech-esque marketplace selling unique in-universe merchandise, some of which are practically attractions in of themselves. None of the packaging being sold bears the standard Star Wars or Disney Parks logos, in order to maintain the illusion that all the souvenirs for sale were actually crafted by and for the Black Spire villagers themselves.

Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities

Dok-Ondar is a surly, hammerheaded Ithorian who’s the local godfather of black market goods; if you want to buy a historical character’s lightsaber or Sith holocron, you may need to barter with the animatronic bi-mouthed bigwig, who haggles with guests through his human helpers. Sharp-eyed fans will spot easter eggs from practically every Star Wars film and television show, including a 12-foot-tall taxidermied Wampa from The Empire Strikes Back.

Mubo’s Droid Depot

Here you can pick robot parts off of conveyor belts to build your own pint-sized R-series (like R2-D2) or BB-series droid (think BB-8), which will then communicate with its full-scale counterparts around the land. Pre-assembled droids, like a chatty C-3PO and an R-3X (“Rex”) bluetooth speaker, are also available. Greet the gregarious robots outside, one of whom is enjoying a relaxing oil bath.

Bina’s Creature Stall

Guests come to this stall to adopt a plush Porg puppet, a disgustingly adorable writhing baby Rathtar, or a shoulder-sitting Kowakian monkey-lizard, which is what the honorable Salacious B. Crumb is. All the animals react to your touch with sound and movement, and the stall is stuffed with additional animatronic aliens that unfortunately can’t be taken home.

Toydarian Toymaker

For kids young and old, the Toydarian Toymaker has plush dolls of legendary characters that look handcrafted from up-cycled scraps of fabric, metal AT-ATs assembled from spare parts, and other unconventional playthings. All toys are handmade by Zabaka the Toydarian, a flying creature much like Watto from The Phantom Menace.

Clothing and Accessories

For more typical T-shirts, hats, pins, and the like, you can either report to First Order Cargo, a spaceport hangar selling First Order-related clothing and gear as well as other Dark Side propaganda, or sign up at the makeshift Resistance Supply stall and show your support for the freedom fighters. Finally, Jewels of Bith has accessories and trinkets from across the Outer Rim.
