It’s here! Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge has officially opened at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort. The 14-acre land transports guests into the planet of Batuu, where you can step into the most immersive Star Wars world yet.

As of 8:00 a.m. EST, the park already had a 150 minute wait at Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. Disney is taking steps to ensure a pleasant guest experience for all guests though, with different boarding groups to help with the flow of traffic in the park.

That area of the park includes all new restaurants, merchandise, and of course, rides.

Soar the Galaxy Aboard the Millennium Falcon – Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run makes dreams come true for guests who’ve wished to step aboard the “fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy.” Here, guests can strap into the Falcon cockpit and take the controls as pilots, gunners or flight engineers on a mission to deliver smuggled goods while avoiding any … unnecessary entanglements.

For food, you can visit the Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo, or visit Oga’s Cantina.

For a quick snack, you can also grab a delicious Ronto Wrap from Ronto Roasters or some sweet and spicy Outpost Mix from Kat Saka’s Kettle. And of course, you can always sip on the popular plant-based Blue Milk (or even Green Milk!) at the Milk Stand. For full menus and to make reservations for Oga’s Cantina, be sure to check out the My Disney Experience app or check out our recent Foodie Guide, and don’t forget – mobile ordering is available for the Milk Stand, Docking Bay 7 Food & Cargo, and Ronto Roasters!

For merchandise, you can visit the Black Spire Outpost for all of your needs!

Guests can pick up authentic Batuuan attire with a stop at Black Spire Outfitters, start a collection of toys at Toydarian Toymakers, or peek into the cages in the Creature Stall. Guests can visit Savi’s Workshop to craft their own lightsabers, customizing them with various hilts, décor and the all-important kyber crystals, or build and customize their own astromech friends at the Droid Depot.
