Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge

On a Galaxy Far Far Away…

In 2019, both Walt Disney World and Disneyland brought the Star Wars universe to life. I grew up watching the Star Wars movies but I’ve never been a huge Star Wars fan and I was blown away by the new world that Disney has created! When you visit Disney’s Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge make sure to wear your Star Wars apparel, you’ll fit right in with the crowd! 

Star Wars: The Rise of the Resistance

The headliner attraction of Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge is the Rise of the Resistance! This attraction is the most technically advanced attraction Disney has ever created and it’s definitely worth the wait!

Rise of the Resistance allows you to join the Resistance in their fight against the First Order. Your journey brings you face to face with Storm Troopers, First Order soldiers, Kylo Ren, and many more Star Wars characters.

Disney created Rise of the Resistance to be an immersive experience that provides thrills in a non-traditional way. The success of Rise of the Resistance will certainly influence how Disney creates future attractions.

Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run

The other attraction in Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge allows you to drive the Millennium Falcon!

The coolest part about this attraction is you are actually driving the Millennium Falcon! Your experience is determined completely by you and your driving skills!

Tip: This ride has a single rider line. If your family doesn’t mind getting split up, the line is usually much shorter than the regular line.

Oga’s Cantina

When you were a kid watching Star Wars, did you ever dream of sitting in a cantina with droids and aliens? Now you have the chance. Sitting in Oga’s, you would think you are sitting inside the movie set!

Oga’s Cantina serves unique and delicious alcoholic, non-alcoholic drinks, breakfast, and snacks.

Tip: Get a reservation if possible. If not, wait in line! The wait usually isn’t longer than 45 minutes.


Droid Depot and Savi’s Workshot

Did you ever dream of having your own lightsaber? In Savi’s Workshop, you have the chance to build your own custom lightsaber and bring it life with a kyber crystal

Everyone grew up loving CP30 and R2D2, now you can take home your own droid. Like R2D2 and CP30, your droid will have it’s own personality and come to life!

Tip: Both Savi’s Workshop and the Droid Depot have been very busy so I would recommend getting a reservation in advance.


Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge allows so many people to life their fantasies and immerse themselves in the world of Star Wars! I highlighted a few attractions above but there are so many other things to do and see in Galaxy’s Edge.

  1. Funny story, I never watched any Star Wars movies until December 2019 because the last one was coming out and my husband wanted to watch it. I had to watch all movies in like two weeks and educate myself.

  2. Thanks for the tip about single rider for Smuggler’s Run! I had never noticed it had one and I will definitely fit in an extra run or two once Disneyland opens back up.

  3. Fun! I haven’t been to a Disney property since the Star Wars attractions came out. They sound like fun! I’ve always been a fan of this franchise.
