Galaxy's Edge is here (in Disneyland...) - All you need to know!

Well...it's here, and it appears to be quite incredible. We're talking about Galaxy's Edge, of course, and while there's still a couple of months to wait for the Disney World edition, the Disneyland edition is up and running and accepting reservations! By the way, reservations is a key word here. You can only get in with a reservation, but we'll cover that in more detail shortly. For now, let's dive into all of the awesome experiences at Galaxy's Edge, and what you can expect in the galaxy far, far away!

Attractions

As of now, there aren't a ton of attractions at Galaxy's Edge, but what does exist are really quite amazing. If you're a Star Wars fan (or, like us, complete geek), then Galaxy's Edge is going to be something you have to see.

Millenium Falcon Smuggler's Run

Did you grow up with the (or, still) wish of one day piloting the Millenium Falcon? That day has arrived. The Smuggler's Run attraction combines navigating the ship with a virtual ride throughout the Galaxy. If you do happen to get the Pilot role (there are two other roles), you legitimately get to FLY THE FALCON. Like, c'mon...does it get cooler than that?!

Savi's Workshop (Lightsabers)

So you had your chance to fly the Falcon, and it was incredible. Obviously. But, what about those dreams you had where you used the force to jump on a platform and engage in a brilliant lightsaber battle with your Sith nemesis? Well, head over to Savi's Workshop and get 'treat yoself' to a lightsaber! It will be very expensive ($200!), but shouldn't anything with a kyber crystal inside it be expensive? I mean, it's the most sought-after mineral in the galaxy, after all. 

Shopping

Shop to your heart's content at the many stores around The Edge (we're trying to spread the nickname around...).

Droid Depot

You built your saber, the weapon of the Jedi, but you need a droid companion to join you on your trips across the galaxy as your copilot, right? Right. Head over to the Droid Depot and legitimately BUILD YOURSELF A DROID. Like the form factor of the R2 droids? Great, built an R2. What about an R4 droid? You can build that, too. So. Dang. Cool.

Toydarian Toymaker

Stop by the toymaker to satisfy your craving for Star Wars-specific plushes and figures. There are a TON of collectible items available, and as you can expect, some of them are pretty expensive. However, if you're willing to spend, you're going to take home some incredible stuff. 

Dining

You might get hungry while you're there, and in the California heat, you'll certainly get thirsty. Thankfully, there are tons of places to stop while you're in The Edge! (we're really trying with this nickname...).

Oga's Cantina

Need I say more? The Cantina is a real thing. You HAVE to go to the Cantina. You have to. Get one of their amazing beverages, share a treat, and take in the atmosphere of the only "club" in the Galaxy that's actually worth waiting to get into. 

Docking Bay 7

Looking for a place to actually sit down and eat? Great! Here's your spot. It offers a nice menu of options, and obviously, all of the food is Star Wars themed!

Reservations

This part may actually be the most important part of the entire blog. So, if you made it here, congrats! You're getting the most important information! Until June 23rd, you'll be required to get reservations to get into Galaxy's Edge, and they're 4 hours long. Once your 4 hours is up, you have to leave. That's how it works. Also, if you leave during your reservation (can't imagine you'd want to do that), you cannot get back in without making another. That's just the dealio.

There you have it! A full rundown of the newest, and most "out of this world" attraction at Disneyland! Enjoy!
