You and the family will be soon be transported to a destination in a galaxy far, far away, to the remote planet of Batuu where there exists an infamous, off-the-beaten-path haven called Black Spire Outpost, where the galaxy’s most notorious and colorful characters hang out. Here you will encounter, traders, adventurers, and smugglers who travel around the Outer Rim and Wild Space wreaking havoc and causing chaos!
On Disney’s Batuu, you will also find yourself smack in the middle of two action-packed attractions that are completely immersed in the Star Wars world. The first, called Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, and the second, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.
As you can only imagine, and as only Disney can create, guests are put behind the controls of the most famous ship in the galaxy, the Millennium Falcom. There they are given one of three unique flight crew roles. In the second attraction, guests are put right in the middle of an exciting high staked battle between the Resistance and the First Order. There both interactive, so your choices in action determine your experience and your game outcome!
But that’s not all! There is so much to do on this exotic, galactic outpost. You can shop at the street market for space delicacies or visit cantinas to hang out with some old Star Wars friends. You will encounter creatures and characters from the Star Wars Universe at every turn, throughout Galaxy’s Edge.
