Tantalizing Thrills

Millennium Falcon: Smuggler's Run

It might feel like a dream, but we assure you, it's reality. Yes, you are really sitting in the cockpit of Han Solo's beloved Millennium Falcon. Others may think it's a worn-out old jalopy, but you know the truth—this is the fastest freighter in the galaxy. Whether engaged in an aerial assault against the Death Star or speeding through space to outrun Han's debts, the Millennium Falcon is one awesome ride. You'll depart on your own special space adventure when you enter Smuggler's Run.

 

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance

It's time to put on a brave face, because you're about to join the Resistance for a gripping battle. Rise of the Resistance finds you on the front lines of a dangerous journey to destroy the First Order and restore peace to the galaxy.

Note: Rise of the Resistance will not be open on August 29—the attraction is scheduled to open in late 2019.

 

Terrific Treasures

Droid Depot

The droids in the Star Wars stories are easily some of the most beloved characters ever to grace the big screen. Whether you love R2-D2's quirky sounds or you prefer BB-8's super cool gadgetry, you can build your very own astromech unit. Once you enter the workshop, you'll choose from a variety of parts to construct the droid of your dreams.

 

Savi's Workshop

Now that you've built a droid, you're going to need to protect it. Stop by Savi's Workshop to build your one-of-a-kind lightsaber. Choose from several themes to create a lightsaber that fits your own special powers and abilities. Themes include "Peace and Justice", "Power and Control", "Elemental Nature", and "Protection and Defense". Each theme uses components found in different areas of the galaxy, drawing power from the unique attributes of each part.

 

Creature Stall

Galaxy's Edge is the perfect place to find a loveable new friend for your home. Visit the Creature Stall to find a wide assortment of exotic critters, from an adorable furry Porg to the rare Kowakian monkey-lizard.

 

Toydarian Toymaker

This spot is reminiscent of Santa's workshop. Zabaka the Toydarian toymaker whiles away the hours creating unique, enjoyable toys to amuse children (and adults!) across the galaxy.  You'll see a partially-completed tauntaun rocking horse amidst the clutter, and you'll find plenty of superb playthings to bring home with you.

 

First Order Cargo & Resistance Supply

These shops are a must for anyone who wants to show their allegiance. If you believe in the First Order's mission to restore order to the galaxy (it's okay, we won't hold that against you), then you'll definitely want to peruse the selection of clothing and accessories at First Order Cargo. If you're determined to help the Resistance fight against the oppressive leaders of the First Order, then you're going to need some gear from Resistance Supply.

 

Great Grub

Oga's Cantina

Cantinas are popular spots for bounty hunters and smugglers, but they're also a welcome respite for travelers like yourself. Take a load off as you listen to the musical stylings of a very talented droid and sip a thirst-quenching beverage or two.

 

Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo

This unique dining area is found in an unlikely spot—a working hangar bay. Fill your belly with unusual fare from far-off places in the galaxy. You can also enjoy a seat outdoors in the rustic marketplace.

 

Milk Stand

You're sure to enjoy the frothy, frozen confections found at the Milk Stand. These treats are brightly colored and come highly recommended—after all, Luke Skywalker loved them!

 

Ronto Roasters

Your mouth will water at the smell of the juicy meat roasting at Ronto Roasters. Choose delicious grilled sausage or savory roast pork for a tasty snack.

 

Kat Saka's Kettle

Kat Saka's Kettle is home to a favorite galaxy snack—Outpost Mix. A sweet and savory blend of popcorn and local spices, this is a great spot to stop for refueling.

 

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is bound to be one of Disneyworld's most popular attractions. Visitors will find themselves transported to another world, a world where the Resistance battles tirelessly against the First Order. A world filled with incredible sights and sounds and marvelous creatures. A world that you'll never forget. 

 

To make your trip even more enjoyable, we're happy to offer a free, one-day Hollywood Studios ticket for guests staying with Jeeves from August 1, 2019 through December 5, 2019!
