Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge immerses guests into a never-before-seen outpost on the edge of the galaxy. The new area located behind Frontierland and Critter Country is 14-acres and includes two major attractions, plus shopping, and dining. For context, the rest of Disneyland park, not including Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, is a combined 85 acres.
Guests will immediately be transported onto the planet of Batuu, whose glory days as a major spaceport ended after the creation of hyperspace travel. Now on the outskirts of civilization, the planet is perfect for those looking to get out from under the First Order's thumb. Even on Batuu, though, guests will still see the ever-encroaching presence of the oppressive First Order, as well as the Resistance who struggles to oppose them. Both sides are heavily felt throughout Batuu including Resistance and First Order ships including a full sized X-wing Starfighter and a First Order command shuttle.
Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is full of custom merchandise and highly themed food & drink. Guests can find apparel to support the Resistance or the First Order, they can build their own droids, or customize their own lightsabers. After working up an appetite, guests can visit a immersive cantina for out-of-this-world cocktails or grab a snack cooked over a podracing engine.
Guests can pilot one of the most famous starships in the galaxy in this interactive attraction that has guests creating their own adventures. Settle into the cockpit of "the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy" and discover what surprises the "bucket of bolts" has to offer.
Chewbacca has flown the Falcon to the Black Spire Outpost for repairs. In exchange for needed parts, Chewie has loaned the ship to smuggler Hondo Ohnaka for a mission which turns out to be the focus of the attraction. Hondo is a Weequay pirate who is always looking for the next big opportunity. Hondo runs Ohnaka Transport Solutions, a "legitimate business" on Batuu. He asks for help from guests as he has more cargo than he can handle and needs extra flight crews...especially those that won't ask a lot of questions.
You’ll be immersed into this adventure before you even step inside the cockpit. Guests will board the Falcon through an access hatch on the starboard airlock, then spend some time in the lounge where they can sit at the infamous Dejarik table or check out the ship's equipment. When it's time for the mission to begin, guests will be assigned one of three different roles: Pilot, Gunner, or Flight Engineer. Once the Falcon is powered up, guests will make the jump to lightspeed, with Hondo (and Chewbacca) helping them along the way. Following their mission, Hondo will let guests know how they did.
This attraction sets a new standard for what a Disney theme park experience can be, as guests become heroes of the Resistance in a climactic battle with the First Order. In one of the most immersive, ambitious and technologically advanced attractions ever created for a Disney park, guests launch into space aboard a transport shuttle, only to be captured by a Star Destroyer and pursued by Supreme Leader Kylo Ren as they frantically search for a way to escape the clutches of the First Order.
In addition to Kylo Ren and General Hux, guests will also encounter favorite Star Wars heroes Rey, Poe, Finn, and BB-8.
The attraction is one of the largest Disney has built and combines multiple ride systems to tell the story.
