Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Tips – What to Do First


Disneyland‘s latest land, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, is finally open. Set on the planet Batuu, the new land offers a completely immersive experience for the Star Wars fan. For the time being, you can only enter Galaxy’s Edge with a reservation. Reservations are granted in four-hour chunks. You may be thinking, “Why do I need four hours in a single land, with a single ride?” Trust me, there is plenty to do, so read on for our Galaxy’s Edge tips!

I was able to visit the land on opening weekend, and while we got to see a lot of stuff, we still didn’t see everything. Below are some of the things not to miss (though we missed out on a few) along with pro tips to help you make the most out of your trip to Batuu.


Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge Tips

The single ride in the land sends you on a mission in the Millennium Falcon. It is a motion ride, much like Star Tours, but without the 3D glasses. With six riders per vessel, you can choose to be the pilot, the gunner, or the engineer. Each position offers different tasks: pilots are responsible for steering the ship; gunners must shoot enemy ships; engineers must push buttons in sequence to repair damages.

PRO TIP: Don’t go straight to the ride. Everyone goes straight for the ride. We went on about an hour and a half into our reservation. By that time, the wait was less than 15 minutes and we were able to go on it three times.
