Walt Disney World

In Orlando you can live your own Star Wars story every day in a Galaxy Far, Far Away at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Hollywood Studios, plus you can enjoy special food options throughout the resort to celebrate May the 4th.


Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios transports you to the village of Black Spire Outpost on Batuu—a remote trading planet that acts as one of the last stops before Wild Space.


Step into this exciting planet. Explore exotic shops, restaurants, back alleys, hidden Resistance rendezvous areas and even a First Order base. Sample curious concoctions at the local cantina, snack on favorite galactic foods, shop for ancient antiquities and build your own customized droid or lightsaber.


Gather your crew and take control of the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy on Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. Blast off into hyperspace and experience an adventure beyond your dreams.


On Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance you join the Resistance in an epic battle against the First Order. This massive, multi-platform ride, is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced at Walt Disney World Resort.


Plus, enhance your visit to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge when you download the Play Disney Parks app for interactive adventures throughout Black Spire Outpost.
