The anticipation is OVER and Walt Express has a first look into this brand new land at Disney World’s Hollywood Studios! Join us (in my Darth Vader voice), as we take a first look into Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge at Hollywood Studios. If you were brave enough attend the opening day at Galaxy’s Edge, the force was definitely with you! Here is a peek of what it was like and what you can expect!
Opening Day At Galaxy’s Edge
WOW! That is a lot of people and they are all ready to immerse themselves in Galaxy’s Edge at Disney World’s Hollywood Studios. Some were looking for droids to build while others were looking for the famous blue milk. Some were hunting down light sabers and some were standing around in awe! What a sight to see!
Entering Galaxy’s Edge
Welcome to the Planet Batuu! This new land will have everything you need and even some things you didn’t know you needed!
Millennium Falcon, Smuggler’s Run opened today, August 29. Star Wars, Rise of the Resistance will open later this year on December 5, 2019. As of right now, no fast passes are available for these attractions.
We found some delicious dining options in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge! One of our favorites being Oga’s Cantina! You will some pretty amazing drinks such as the Jedi Mind Trick featuring Ketel One Botanical Grapefruit and Rose Vodka, John D. Taylor’s Velvet Falernum, Bols Blue Curaçao, White Grape Juice, Lime Juice, and Grapefruit Bitters. There are also non-alcoholic drinks available.
We also enjoyed Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo, where you will find breakfast, lunch and dinner! A local favorite is Braised Shaak Roast: Cavatelli Pasta, Wilted Kale, Mushrooms. Another fave is the Smoked Kaadu Ribs: Sticky Pork Ribs, Blueberry Corn Muffin, Cabbage Slaw. If you are looking for something a little sweeter, try the Batuu-bon, which is a chocolate cake, with white-chocolate mousse and a coffee custard. OUT OF THIS WORLD!
Merchandise And MORE!
Of course with any new land, there will be new shopping experiences and Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge does not disappoint! There are several new shops to choose from, just according on what you are looking for! Our favorite is the Creature Stall, featuring exotic animals from a galaxy far away!
Are you part of the FIRST ORDER or does your loyalty lie with the RESISTANCE? Or are you somewhere in between? Be prepared to visit both of these shops and pledge your loyalty!
Don’t forget to build your droid at the Droid Shop!

Oh and btw: Who doesn’t love popcorn? We had to show you the new popcorn bucket!
