    Hi, What is there to do at Galaxy's Edge if we are not doing Smuggler's Run or Rise of the Resistance? My son is excited about a Star Wars world but those rides would be too scary for him. Anything require Fast Pass reservations?

    Bright suns, Casey!  Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel on your way to the planet Batuu.

    In addition to the attractions found within Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, there is so much to see and do as you explore Black Spire Outpost.  Get ready to live your very own Star Wars adventure at this immersive new land!

    As you enter Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, the sights and sounds truly make it feel as if you have traveled to another planet.  I love strolling through the shops in the marketplace and browsing through all of the otherworldly goods.  The Creature Stall, where you can find critters from across the galaxy, is one of my favorite shops to visit.  Be sure to stop and see the Loth-cat sleeping in its cage.  I would also recommend visiting Dok-Ondar's Den of Antiquities.  Star Wars fans of all ages will marvel at Dok-Ondar's unique collection of galactic artifacts and memorabilia.

    After you have done some shopping, be sure to sample some of the local cuisine.  If you've ever wondered what the legendary blue milk tastes like, now you can try it yourself at the Milk StandDocking Bay 7 Food and Cargo is the perfect place for travelers to enjoy a meal.  My favorite Batuu snack, the Ronto Wrap, can be found at Ronto Roasters.  Reservations are not needed for any of these quick-service locations, but if you're hoping to enjoy a drink at Oga's Cantina, reservations are recommended for this local watering hole.

    There are a couple of additional experiences at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge that accept reservations.  Reservations are recommended for travelers hoping to visit Savi's Workshop - Handbuilt Lightsabers and for those wishing to build their own custom astromech droid at Droid Depot.  Reservations for these activities can be made up to 180 days in advance.

    Before you travel to Batuu, be sure to download Star Wars: Datapad on the Play Disney Parks mobile app to enhance your visit to Black Spire Outpost.  While you are exploring the land, keep your eyes open.  You might just see some familiar faces from the Star Wars universe interacting with travelers.  After your visit to Batuu, don't forget to explore all of the other Star Wars offerings throughout Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    'Til the spires!
