    I would like to know more about Star Wars galaxy edge

    Bright Suns, Teresa!

    We take heart in knowing that you might soon be on your way to join the Resistance forces on Batuu. Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is an immersive experience, so come prepared to take flight, converse with other travelers, and escape the First Order!

    There are two main attractions in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge - Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. Both drop you in the middle of the action. On Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, Hondo Ohnaka is looking for courageous flight crews to deliver some important cargo. Our girls jumped in the pilot seats both times on our last visit. I have been a pilot, a gunner, and an engineer and am happy not being a pilot (still need to work on my flying skills)!

    Although Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run will soon have FastPass+ access, to experience Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, travelers are currently required to join a boarding group. To join a boarding group, we arrived at the park, cleared security, and were in the park prior to park opening. Once the park officially opened, we used the My Disney Experience Mobile App to join a boarding group. You must have a boarding group number to experience the attraction. Every member of your party who wants to ride must be in the park with you when you join a boarding group. We were there on two different days and all boarding groups were gone soon after park opening. So, I suggest that you arrive early if you want to experience this attraction. 

    There are also other ways to explore Batuu. Our girls were determined to enhance their skills in the Force so we diligently found the secret location of Savi's Workshop to build lightsabers and we reserved space at Oga's Cantina to enjoy a few beverages with other travelers. If your party needs nourishment, stop by Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo. Finally, be sure to bring your Star Wars: Datapad to hack into droids and translate galactic languages!

    Teresa, be prepared. We witnessed several travelers confronted by First Order operatives. They stayed strong and did not reveal the location of Resistance forces. We trust that soon, you will join the Cause!

    Good journey,
