How Many Attractions Are In Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge?

Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run is open now….and it’s fantastic.  See my post, What To Expect Riding Millennium Falcon.  Gives you all of the details to know before riding.  The Rise of The Resistance will open later January 17th 2020.

Will I Get Motion Sickness Riding The Millennium Falcon?

Chances are, if you have a hard time riding Star Tours in Tomorrowland, you might have a similar response to the Millennium Falcon.  You have that flying sensation, but in a smaller ride space than Star Tours.  I don’t have any trouble with motion sickness, but Star Tours is a good comparison.

No official announcement has been made regarding FASTPASS for the Millennium Falcon.

What Is The Height Requirement For Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run?

You must be at least 38′ tall to ride.

What Should I Do First at Galaxy’s Edge?

This is a very popular question among guests that is honestly going to be a little different for everyone.  First question you’ll want to ask yourself….what is top on your list to do at Galaxy’s Edge?  If it’s getting into Oga’s Cantina you’ll want to get your reservation up to 60 days before your visit via the disneyland App.  If you are not worried about making it into Oga’s Cantina, get in line at Millennium Falcon first and experience that a couple times!  If you are dying to make a handbuilt lightsaber, make sure you get a reservation up to 60 days in advance as well.

Decide what is most important to you and do those things first.

If It’s In Your Budget to Build a Droid or Handbuilt Lightsaber

  • Build your own custom droid at the Droid Depot or Lightsaber at Savi’s Workshop!  Give yourself an hour start to finish at the Droid Depot with the line to get started.  Even if you don’t build a droid, go in and watch.  It’s pretty awesome!  If you are going the Lightsaber route, get your reservation the same day as your park visit before 7am via the Disneyland App.
  • Walk around to find some Galaxy’s Edge Characters to get photos with!  Storm Troopers and Chewie and Rey were our favorites!
  • Use Mobile Order Blue and Green Milk from the Milk Stand.  Definitely get both.  They’re very different and fun to taste test with your group.

Shop!

  • Check out all of the fun shops!  Black Spire Outpost Marketplace is my favorite.  There’s Jewels of Bith, Black Spire Outfitters, Toydarian Toymakers and Creature Stall.  Even if you’re just browsing, you won’t want to miss these!  Purchase the Galaxy’s Edge re-usuable shopping bag with your souvenirs.  I love using mine at home.  Inexpensive souvenir too!
  • Browse through Don Ondar’s Den of Iniquities.  Super cool gift shop with unique things to purchase.  Awesome details around this shop.
  • Don’t forget to mobile Order a Ronto Wrap and Meiloorun Juice from Ronto Roasters.  The Ronto Wrap is really good, even if you share it, get one!!
  • Grab a bag of Kat Saka’s Kettle Outpost Popcorn Mix and Star Wars Coke Bottles to go!

What’s The Best Food To Eat at Galaxy’s Edge

While I honestly loved everything I sampled….if I had to choose just a few things to order at Galaxy’s Edge it would be as follows…

  1. Ronto Wrap from Ronto Roasters is a must.  Roasted Pork, Grilled Pork Sausage, Peppercorn Sauce, tangy Slaw, wrapped in Pita It’s good!!  Mobile Ordering accepted.

  1. Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo Endorian Fried Chicken Tip-Yip (all day entree) and the Batuuan Beef Pot Roast (served on dinner menu only).  Order the Batuu-bon for dessert.

  1. Blue and Green Milk (not food, but you have to get these while in Galaxy’s Edge).  They’re both so good.  The blue milk seems to be most popular if you want to just order one, but I recommend ordering both!

Is Oga’s Cantina Worth The Wait?

Oga's Cantina Galaxy's Edge

Honestly, I don’t even drink alcohol and loved the Cantina experience so much!  There are plenty of non-alcoholic drinks available.  No matter if you are drinking or not, I highly recommend adding Oga’s Cantina to your Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge “to do” list.  You won’t be sorry.

Can I Dress Up/Wear Costumes?

    I have a 9am reservation this Friday for Ogas. Do i still need to line up early or can I arrive at Oga’s at my reservation time? Thank you for all the tips!!

    1. I would show up 10-15 minutes early. Generally even with your reservation, you’ll have to wait an additional 5-10 minutes. It’s nice to be there a little early so you can be at the front of the 9am group. Hope you enjoy!

    Thank you for this review! We are headed there this Sunday. We have an 8am reservation. If we have a party of 5 and want a saber and to go to Oga’s which should we do first or can we divide to get in the different lines?thanks!

    1. Yes! Have one person in your party head straight to Oga’s Cantina. You only need one for that. Have the rest of your party head to Savi’s Workshop for the Lightsaber experience. Both will have a line, but awesome you can split your group and get in both lines. Have a wonderful time!
