Galaxy's Edge - new details revealed!

Andy

As Disney prepare to open the Star Wars Galaxy's Edge theme park at their California and Florida resorts, new details have emerged from press previews of what promises to be the most immersive Star Wars experience by far.

The park is themed around the outer rim planet Batuu, with roleplaying experiences and missions to be discovered. Millennium Falcon: Smuggler's Run is sure to be a big hit with fans, as they pilot the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy, and in "Rise of the Resistance" visitors will be captured by the First Order and taken aboard a Star Destroyer.

Retail stores will allow you to customise your own droid and build your own lightsaber, while restaurants will showcase food from around the galaxy including Ronto Wraps, Endorian Tip-Yip, and of course, Blue Milk.

Galaxy's Edge opens in Disneyland California this summer, and in Disney World Florida in Fall 2019.

    • Disney's Galactic Starcruiser hotel details revealed

      Disney have revealed some details about a new Star Wars themed hotel currently under construction at Walt Disney World, Florida. The hotel will be an immersive experience titled Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser; and, as the name suggests, guests staying in the hotel will feel like they are taking a voyage on a star cruiser.
      In-universe the star cruise is called Halcyon, and is operated by Chandrila Star Line. The starcruiser has 32 cabins available to guests, with a mix of standard and first-class cabins catering for up to five people.
      Fans may recognise Chandrila as one of the worlds of the Core Worlds which served as an interim capital of the New Republic following the defeat of the Empire, and is also the homeworld of Loyalist Committee member and Alliance leader Mon Mothma. Chandrila is also the homeworld of Ben Solo.
      The hotel will tie-in to the Black Spire Outpost Star Wars themed area of the Disney resort, and guests will be able interact with Disney cast members who will remain in character allowing you to explore their stories during your voyage. Guests will also reportedly be given a backstory for their character while staying at the hotel.
      Prining and opening date details have not yet been released, but Disney have released some concept art, below:

    • You can now reserve your entry to Galaxy's Edge at Disneyland

      If you're intending to travel to the outer rim world of Batuu this summer, then you'll be pleased to know that reservations are now open for entry into the Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge park at Disneyland, California.
      Reservations will be required if you want to visit Galaxy's Edge 31 May and 23 June. There is a catch, however, as reservations are currently only open to those booking rooms at Disneyland Resort hotels. For those not staying in the resort, reservations will open on 2 May, with further details to be posted on the Disney Parks Blog that morning.
      Thankfully there are no additional fees to reserve your entry, but spaces are subject to availability, presumeably in an effort to avoid overcrowding.
      Galaxy's Edge promises an authentic Star Wars experience, with the production team going to whole new levels to ensure visitors are fully emmersed in a galaxy far far away.
