Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is Still Worth Visiting!
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland and Walt Disney World is a highly immersive and interactive themed land that brings the Star Wars universe to life. It includes unique attractions, dining experiences, merchandise, and entertainment based on the iconic Star Wars franchise.
Visitors can take part in their own Star Wars adventure by visiting the planet of Batuu, where they can explore the Black Spire Outpost, interact with droids and aliens, and even pilot the Millennium Falcon. The land also includes two signature attractions: Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.
The attention to detail and overall design of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge make it a truly unforgettable experience for fans of all ages. The theming extends to the food and drinks, with menu items inspired by the Star Wars universe, and the merchandise, which features one-of-a-kind items that can only be found in the land.
Some of my favorites include:
- Blue Milk: A non-dairy frozen drink inspired by the Star Wars franchise and is a must-try for fans.
- Ronto Roasters: A counter service location that serves grilled sausage wrapped in a pita with tangy slaw and a unique spice blend.
- Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo: A full-service restaurant that offers a variety of entrees and sides inspired by the Star Wars universe, including the famous “Fried Endorian Tip-Yip”.
- Kat Saka’s Kettle: A snack stand that offers a sweet and savory popcorn mix made with flavors inspired by the Star Wars galaxy.
And then there’s a premium experience around lightsabers. At Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, visitors have the opportunity to build their own custom lightsaber at the marketplace location, Savi’s Workshop. The process involves choosing a hilt and listening to a storyteller who guides you through selecting the components that make up your lightsaber.
Building a lightsaber at Savi’s Workshop is considered expensive by some visitors because it is a premium experience and a one-of-a-kind collectible item. The lightsaber hilts range from $200 to $260 and each component, such as the kyber crystal, adds to the overall cost. However, the cost is worth it for fans of the Star Wars franchise and those who want a unique and authentic experience. Plus, you can swap out kyber crystals for different colored sabers!
So yeah, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is worth the money for those who are fans of the Star Wars franchise and are looking for an immersive and interactive experience. The level of detail, unique attractions, and overall atmosphere of the land make it a must-visit for those who love all things Star Wars… though it could use more rides. And no, I’ve yet to check out the ‘hotel’ but if you want to send me a $5,000, I’ll be happy to check it out. 🙂
