Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Walt Disney World

Have you ever dreamed of visiting a galaxy far, far away? Well, now's your chance! Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is a dream come true for every Star Wars fan out there. 

You actually have two options for visiting Galaxy's Edge and luckily, neither option is too far, far away. You can visit Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Disney's Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World in Florida and at Disneyland Park in California. For this post, we're focusing on Walt Disney World's version of the land.

It's hard to visit Galaxy's Edge without feeling totally immersed in the Star Wars galaxy. From unique attractions to dining and shopping opportunities, this galaxy has it all!


Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run
Take control of the fastest ship in the galaxy! Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run gives guests the chance to fly the iconic starship on a mission for Hondo Ohnaka. Each ship is assigned two Pilots, two Gunners and two Engineers so if you have a party larger than six, you'll have to split up.

The attraction is available with the Genie+ Lightning Lane service and has a Single Rider Line in addition to the traditional standby queue. The attraction has a 38" height requirement so the little ones will need to sit this one out. This is a thrill/simulator ride so for safety, guests should be in good health and free from high blood pressure, heart, back or neck problems, motion sickness, or other conditions that could be aggravated by this adventure. Expectant mothers should also not ride.

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance
No spoilers here but this attraction is absolutely amazing! Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is an attraction like we've never seen before with multiple ride systems and is a truly thrilling, one of a kind experience.
This attraction is available to experience by the standby queue or you can purchase an Individual Lightning Lane for this attraction. This attraction is not included in the Genie+ service. The prices for Individual Lightning Lane vary by date but at the time of this posting, prices for this attraction have been around $20 per person, plus tax. You can only use the Individual Lightning Lane option once per day for this attraction so if you want to ride more than once, you'll need to wait in the standby queue. 

Another important thing to note about this attraction is that there is a 40" height requirement. This is a thrill ride with small drops so for safety, guests should be in good health and expectant mothers should also not ride. If you guests in your party can't/don't want to ride this attraction, you can use the Rider Switch service. 


Savi's Workshop - Handbuilt Lightsabers
Live out every Star Wars fan's dream and build your own lightsaber at Savi's Workshop. This experience is extremely popular so reservations are highly recommended. You can make reservations up to 60 days in advance. The cost is $249.99 per lightsaber, plus tax and includes one lightsaber/carrying case per experience. Payment will be due upon arrival at Savi's.

This experience is limited to the builder plus one guest and at least one person in the party must be 14 years or older. So if you want to make more than one lightsaber, you'll need to make more than one reservation. 

Droid Depot
If you love R2-D2 and BB8, you'll love visiting the Droid Depot where you can build your very own droid! You'll be provided a basket and blueprint to design your BB-Series or R-Series unit. After you gather your parts from the conveyor belt, you can visit a Build Station where you can assemble your droid.

Reservations are highly recommended but the Droid Depot can also accommodate walk-ins based on availability. If this is on your Must-Do list, I recommend making a reservation 60 days in advance. The cost is $119.99 per droid unit, plus tax and includes a box to carry your droid plus instructions and remote. Personality chips and other accessories are available at an additional cost. The experience area is limited to the builder and one guest, with at least one person in the party being age 14 or older.


Oga's Cantina
Visit Batuu's notorious watering hole to try a sampling of unique libations. Oga's Cantina offers a wide variety of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails that are out of this world. Space inside Oga's is extremely limited, so we highly recommend advance reservations. Due to the limited seating and it's popularity, your visit is limited to 45 minutes. 

Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo
Fuel up at this Black Spire quick service dining location. An added bonus to this dining location is you can now order food through the My Disney Experience app on your mobile device. Docking Bay 7 is available for lunch or dinner, serving dishes from across the galaxy like Batuuan Beef Pot Roast and Roasted Endorian Chicken Salad. Seating is available inside the hanger or you can grab a table outside. 

Milk Stand
You can't visit Galaxy's Edge without trying a legendary blue or green milk from the Milk Stand! These really don't taste like milk and are more of a fruity, frozen concoction. You can also try an alcoholic version of the blue or green milk. 

Ronto Roasters
A quick service option on Batuu, Ronto Roasters is available for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Specialities include Ronto Wraps and Galma Snack Sampler.
Kat Saka's Kettle
If you're looking for a sweet, savory snack, Kat Saka's is the place for you. You can grab some Outpost Popcorn Mix and a Bottled Orb Soda. I had to get both and I'm happy to report the popcorn was very tasty! The Bottled Orb Sodas are pricey but they make great souvenirs. I have my empty Diet Coke orb displayed in my movie room. 


Dok-Ondar's Den of Antiquities
The details in this shop are out of this world! At Dok-Ondar's, you'll find a little bit of everything. 

Black Spire Outfitters
This is the perfect place to update your Jedi wardrobe. 

First Order Cargo
Make sure to stop by First Order Cargo over on Docking Bay 9 to show your support for the First Order. 

Creature Stall
You'll find some of the cutest and most unique creatures from across the galaxy at the Creature Stall.
Toydarian Toymaker
Browse handcrafted toys and collectibles made by Zabaka the Toydarian. 

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is not to be missed! On my recent trip, I spent hours exploring all of the amazing details throughout the land and still left wishing I had more time to explore.

House of Blues Brunch

Brunch is probably my favorite meal to go out for, and Disney Springs has some hidden gems in the brunch department. House of Blues offers weekend brunch with one of the best deals on property, bottomless mimosas!  If you’re up for it, House of Blues offers a laid back atmosphere with live music for brunch. It is available Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 2pm, with the full menu available after 12pm. We were sat in the back room where we couldn’t see the stage but could hear it and it was a great vibe!  Bottomless mimosas and coffee were the popular choice for beverages, but they also offer a variety of brunch cocktails and other options. Bottomless mimosa! We were a party of 8 and hungry, so we started with an order of nachos from the lunch menu and they were a HUGE portion, so glad we had a lot of people to share them with.  BBQ Nachos - Four cheese sauce, avocado, roasted corn salsa, pickled red onion, tomato, Memphis BBQ sauce, cilantro crema, cotija cheese. Chicken, Brisket or Pul

Remy Brunch Review

On a recent Disney Cruise with a dear friend, we treated ourselves to a brunch at Remy. At the time of writing, this adult only dining option starts at $75 per person. There is a dress code and even at brunch guests definitely dress up for this dining experience. We got all gussied up after rolling out of the oh so comfortable beds on the Disney Fantasy, and went upstairs.  We were quickly escorted to our seat while being given a brief synopsis of the history of the restaurant. Our table had a lovely water view and if one looked hard enough, a small amount of the AquaDuck! We were given a water menu and asked what kind we would like. Simply put, if I am going to indulge in a beverage during an already expensive meal, it's going to be an adult libation nine times out of ten. For that reason, I told our server that I would be happy with tap and so did my dining companion who whispered in my ear she could not justify $15 on breakfast water. We were quickly served complimentary champag

Giovanni's Table on Liberty of the Seas

Royal Caribbean Cruise Line has wonderful specialty dining options on all of their ships.  They all have some variety of an Italian restaurant and I've tried Jamie's Italian on the Symphony of the Seas and now Giovanni's Table on Liberty of the Seas. The restaurant is located by the Windjammer Buffet, tucked off to one side as you enter the area.  Once inside, the atmosphere is dark and cozy, very different from the buffet hectic world outside the doors.  There is an open kitchen along the one wall and windows along the other.  The restaurant is a set upcharge, and then you can order whatever you want from the food menu that is to your liking throughout the meal.  Giovanni's is actually undergoing some changes on a lot of RCCL ships, but Liberty hadn't had those changes yet so it was still the "old" one, which was fine by us. We had an amazing meal here, and wouldn't hesitate to come back again on a future cruise.  You might see Giovanni's Kitchen
