Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Disneyland opened in May of 2019 in Disneyland California. The highly anticipated new themed land has quickly become a fan favorite with some of the most popular rides, restaurants and Star Wars characters in all of Disneyland. If you are planning a trip to Galaxy’s Edge and worried about the crowds be sure to check out our Disneyland Crowd calendar for additional help planning your trip!
The Disneyland Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge is located in the northwest portion of the theme park with three entrances (from Frontierland, Critter Country, and Fantasyland). The major offerings are nearly the same as the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida.
Below is everything you can enjoy in Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland as far as attractions.
As you can see Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland features two new main attractions: The first of the Galaxy Edge Disneyland rides is the Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run Star Wars attraction Disneyland, where guests are invited on a thrilling interactive smuggling mission. You can quite literally take control of the fastest ship in the galaxy. This ride gives me similar vibes to Star Tours, so if you enjoyed that one you will definitely love this.
Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is an experience. This is a must do at Galaxy’s Edge. It’s an extremely immersive battle against the First Order, complete with multiple ride systems unlike anything before at Disneyland. This is very popular, but very worth it. Note: to reduce long lines at Star Wars Galaxy Edge, there may be times when guests will be required to join a virtual queue to experience this attraction. It will not be required every day; however, the virtual queue will be used as needed. After entering the park, you can request to join the virtual queue and will be assigned a boarding group. The virtual queue is not a physical line, so you can enjoy the rest of Galaxy’s Edge California while you’re waiting.
Guests can only join the virtual queue for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance once per day. This policy allows as many people as possible to have the opportunity to experience this amazing new attraction and to keep Disneyland Star Wars lines reasonable.
In addition to the two main attractions, guests can participate in several other interactive experiences while in Disneyland Star Wars Galaxies Edge:
Luckily there is no special Disneyland Galaxy’s Edge ticket price. You will need valid theme park admission to Disneyland Park to visit Star Wars: Galaxy Edge Disneyland. Be sure to check out our Disneyland ticket page for the latest discounts and deals!
The new dining options in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge include:
Oga’s Cantina: This local cantina at Disneyland Star Wars Galaxy Edge specializes in fantastical drinks sourced with ingredients from across the galaxy and includes musical entertainment courtesy of a droid DJ. But to order selections with alcohol—like the Jedi Mind Trick cocktail—you will need to show your ID.
Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo: Located in Disneyland Galaxy Edge, visitors are invited to fuel up on “galactic grub” at this eatery. This restaurant lives in a working hangar bay and offers dishes prepared with ingredients from across the galaxy—all of it delicious, none of it familiar—including items such as “Batuu-bon” and “Moof Juice.”
Milk Stand: Also located in Star Wars Galaxies Edge Disneyland, this place offers “Batuu’s legendary blue or green milk, served frozen.” According to reports, the backstory involves Star Wars: Episode IV—A New Hope, in which Luke Skywalker can be seen enjoying blue milk, and green milk in Star Wars: Episode VIII—The Last Jedi. No visit is complete without trying this frosty confection.
Ronto Roasters: This exotic meat stall features a savory grilled sausage and roasted pork wrap. A pitmaster droid turns the mechanical spit, grilling a large side of “ronto”—a massive beast native to the planet Tatooine.
Kat Saka’s Kettle: You can’t miss the “Outpost Mix” here—a sweet, savory snack made with popcorn. The backstory alleges that this joint is “run by the grain merchant Kat Saka and offers customers a unique taste of Batuu.” A true Star Wars experience.
Unfortunately there are no official Star Wars meet and greets in Disneyland. However guests will be delighted to see some of their favorite Star War characters walking around in this themed area, including Rey, Kylo Ren, Stormtroopers, Vi Moradi, Chewbacca, and more.
