    I am going to Disneyland in a week and haven't been back since the pandemic. What is the best way to see Star Wars Land?

    Welcome to planDisney, Lynn! I'm glad you found us and sent this question our way!

    I'm so happy to hear that you're returning to the magic at The Happiest Place on Earth! I know when the Disneyland Resort was closed, I missed it so much. There are many ways to best explore Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge during your day at Disneyland Park. One of the many things I love about the immersive land of Batuu is you can guide your own adventure! Are you planning to join the Resistance or will you pledge your allegiance to the First Order? Either way, there are many experiences for both sides. If you want to join the Resistance, you can help on Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance by entering the standby queue or purchasing an Individual Lightning Lane entry for a shorter wait time. You can also help pilot the Millennium Falcon on a smuggling mission on Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. In my experience, the wait times for these attractions are shorter in the evening and closer to the park closing. However, you can check the wait times on the Disneyland Mobile App to decide which time and entry method are best for you. I really love visiting Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge during the daytime and again at night! 

    If you are feeling especially adventurous, you can use your MagicBand+ and the Play Disney Parks App to track down hidden targets throughout Black Spire Outpost. When you have worked up an appetite, you can use your Disneyland Mobile App for Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering at select dining locations in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. My favorite spot to take a break is Oga's Cantina. While you cannot mobile order from this location, you can use the Disneyland Mobile App to join the walk-up list. I suggest checking for available times as soon as you arrive at the park, as this is a very popular spot. You can also check for an advanced dining reservation before you arrive that day.

    I hope this information helps you feel more prepared and excited to visit a Galaxy Far, Far Away! I'm wishing you a very magical and memorable visit!
