Galaxy’s Edge Pro Tips
To really live your Star Wars adventure you need the right equipment to do it. Download the Disney Play app and set up a profile for the Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge Datapad. this tool will give you the ability to interact with the Black Spire Outpost in a number of ways, including hacking controls, scanning cargo, tuning in to satellite communications and more.
There will be apparel for kids who want to dress the part as well. Black Spire Outfitters has everything a Padawan needs. They are also encouraged to wear their own costumes pursuant to Disney’s guidelines.
A couple of Galaxy’s Edge pro tips regarding surveillance. know the lay of the land before you head in. It’s not exactly tricky, but there are a lot of details. The layout of Galaxy’s Edge is also an aspect of the storytelling of the land. The Resistance Forest is on one end of Black Spire and the First Order are located on the other. Both sides are battling for control of the Outpost. You will find 7 merchandise locations and five food and drink locations pretty close to one another. The one outlier is the Milk Stand, which is near First Order Cargo.
There is no table service restaurant, but Docking Bay 7 has a menu that changes throughout the day. Breakfast Lunch and Dinner have separate offerings. Oga’s Cantina is also open for breakfast. Although they do not serve food there (aside from a bar mix), they do have morning cocktails.
Two things to prioritize on your visit to Batuu are Millennium Falcon Smugglers Run and Savi and Son Salvage. In Savi’s workshop, you can build your own lightsaber for $200 plus tax. It’s an experience that involves a little showmanship and takes about 20 minutes. However, it’s very popular and they do run out of scrap metal sometimes. Millennium Falcon is the only attraction in Galaxy’s Edge, so it’s popular as well. Your efforts on Smugglers Run will have an impact on the rest of your experience in Galaxy’s Edge, so don’t wait. Get on faster by using the single rider line.
Plan of Attack
Savi and Son Salvage and Oga’s Cantina both have a virtual check-in process, which means that they will text you when an opening in the line becomes available. Make sure you do this if you want to have either of these experiences. Note that Oga’s Cantina has limited seating and is mostly standing room.
While in Galaxy’s Edge, use your Datapad as much as possible to play your part in the galactic struggle. You can do jobs for either side and join the fight to win control over Black Spire Outpost.
