Set to open in two phases this year, 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.”
Disney World Galaxy’s Edge Star Wars Land Update on What’s Coming
On opening day for phase one, guests will be transported to the remote planet of Batuu, 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.
Phase two, opening later this year, will be Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, another rides which places guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance.
Once guests arrive on Batuu, they will be able to use the Play Disney Parks mobile app to fully immerse themselves in the Star Wars Land experience.
Guests can decide to aid a smuggler, join the Resistance or pledge their loyalty to the First Order. In this all-new environment, guests can make choices about their experience that could impact their adventures as they travel throughout the land by using the Play Disney Parks mobile app in a whole new way.
Batuu is a far-flung destination along the galaxy’s Outer Rim, on the frontier of Wild Space – the uncharted region beyond all known star systems. It is home to The Black Spire Outpost, named for the petrified remains of its once towering ancient trees. These “spires” now stand guard across the river valleys and plains.
The Black Spire Outpost is an infamous port for smugglers, traders and adventurers. You never know who or what you may see! Don’t be surprised if you encounter some familiar faces, from Rey, Finn, and Poe to BB-8 and Chewbacca.
