Aside from Pandora in Animal Kingdom and Toy Story Land in Hollywood Studios, no other land has been more anticipated than Galaxy’s Edge in Hollywood Studios. There are many things to do at Galaxy’s Edge in Disney World, but you won’t be able to do them all on opening day.
That is because Galaxy’s Edge in Disney World is opening in two phases.
The first phase will allow guests to ride just one of the two planned rides in Galaxy’s Edge. While there is only one ride currently, there are plenty of other things to do in Galaxy’s Edge.

This new land will allow guests to fully immerse themselves in the planet Batuu, part of the Black Spire Outpost, described as a“remote outpost on the galaxy’s edge.”
It is full of unique sights, sounds, smells and tastes. Guests can visit two new food & beverage experiences in Star Wars Land, stores featuring unique Star Wars merchandise and ride the most famous ship in the galaxy, the Millennium Falcon. Here are just a few of the things to do at Galaxy’s Edge:
