In an amusement park not so far, far away additional details are being released about Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the new Star Wars themed area slated to open at the Disneyland Resort in 2019.
The village of Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu will be home to smugglers, traders and Disneyland guests alike. Amongst the petrified spires, guests will be immersed in an intergalactic world perfect for those looking to escape the First Order.
Two new attractions have been announced for the new Star Wars Land. In the first, park guests will find themselves in the middle of a battle between the First Order and the Resistance. The second attraction will allow riders to step into the cockpit of the Milllennium Falcon to pilot Han Solo’s beloved ship while shooting blasters and preparing for hyperspace. It’s the same ship Solo made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs in.
After a successful mission, Disneyland guests may want to unwind or unload some of their smuggled goods. Oga’s Cantina will serve as the Black Spire Outpost’s watering hole, bringing celestial concoctions for padawans and libations for the 21 and older Jedis. In addition to themed cocktails, proprietary beer and wine will also be available. This is the first time, outside of the exclusive Club 33, that park guests will be able to order alcoholic drinks within the magic kingdom.
Out of this world drink menus will delight Stormtrooper and bounty hunters alike. Patrons will also be able to enjoy the musical stylings of resident cantina DJ, RX-24, who has previously made a park appearance as the pilot droid in Star Tours.
Black Spire Outpost will additionally feature unique merchandise, some of which is already available within the Disneyland Resort. With the 14-acre Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge park expansion, Disney will offer fans a true-to-story experience complete with galactic missions and on-planet immersive experiences. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is set to open in both the Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World in 2019.
