Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge at Walt Disney World
Last week, I was privileged with being one of the first people to step foot in Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge at Walt Disney World! To say I was excited about traveling to Batuu, is an understatement.
As soon as you find yourself leaving Grand Avenue, and entering the tunnel leading to Batuu, you are instantly fully immersed in an entirely different atmosphere. You hear NO surroundings of what is happening in Hollywood Studios. You truly experience an out of this world sensation almost immediately.

ATTRACTIONS at Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge at Walt Disney World :
There will be two new rides at Star Wars Galaxys Edge at Hollywood Studios, Walt Disney World. Initially, ONLY Millennium Falcon : Smugglers Run will be open. On December 5th, 2019 Star Wars : Rise of the Resistance will also be opening up.
Smugglers Run seems to be a highly popular ride at Disneyland, so I have no doubts about the quality of it. Choosing a role aboard the Millenium Falcon and escaping the first order, sounds right up my alley of Star Wars themed fun.
We have heard some rumors of food at Disneyland Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge, and what’s worth trying versus what is not.
So far, we have heard the blue and green milk is something to TRY, but definitely no need to have more than once. The taste has been compared to the Night Blossom drink you can find at Pandora in Animal Kingdom.
We will update this post as we try more food on our own terms at Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge at Walt Disney World.
Until then, here’s some pictures of yummy Star Wars themed Desserts we got to indulge in at our Disney Social Media Celebration :
A new resort directly inside of Star Wars Galaxys Edge is in the works at Walt Disney World. While there is no definite date of when it will open, here are a few things I personally know :
- There are only about 100 rooms, total. (not confirmed)
- The rooms are fairly small, but extremely cool, including giant screens that create a space like atmosphere in your room, and all throughout the hotel.
- The hotel will NOT be directly inside Hollywood Studios. While it was initially inferred by many that this was the case, it unfortunately, is not.
- It is not going to be a value tier resort, that’s for sure.
I hope you have the BEST time at Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge at Walt Disney World. For more information you can visit the Disney Parks Blog for the inside scoop!
