Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge: It’s Worth a Spot on Your 2022 Bucket List

Walt Disney World unveiled its most ambitious hotel venture yet. The Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is a two-night experience aboard the lavish starcruiser Halcyon. It allows its guests to live out their wildest Star Wars dreams in a fully immersive experience.

In 2019, Hollywood Studios introduced a new area at Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge, allowing visitors to taste life on the planet Batuu. Here’s the Ultimate Guide to Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge from the co-host of the Star Wars Friends Podcast, Star Wars Mega-Fan, and Screen Actors Guild Member, Maggie Lovitt.

The expansive section of the park has a lot to see and do, including the rides Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. When the latter ride launched in 2019, it utilized a somewhat frustrating virtual queue system that allowed guests to secure their spots on the ride. It was pretty much a zoo.

What’s in Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge?

Both rides are fully-immersive experiences and utilize state-of-the-art technology that you won’t find on other Walt Disney World attractions. Rise of the Resistance—while prone to breaking down—is a thrilling experience that takes you through multiple stages and unforgettable locations.

Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge: The Food, Drink, and Shops

Like most areas in the park, you will also find a delicious offering of food to sample during your adventure to Batuu. For casual dining, you can sit outside and enjoy a Ronto Wrap at Ronto Roasters or sit down for a more substantial meal at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo, which offers some ridiculously delicious desserts as well.

It comes in two varieties: green and blue, and you can also spike either drink with alcohol if you are so inclined. Like the Mantell Mix featured in Star Wars: The Bad Batch, you can pick up Outpost Mix from Kat Saka’s Kettle.

Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge is also very dedicated to sticking to the storyline, so you will have to learn some specific lingo to get around. For example, “Bright suns” and “Bright moons” are greetings, depending on the time of day, while “Til the Spire” and “May the Spires keep you” are typical goodbyes.
