Welcome to Batuu ~ Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge To Open August 29, 2019

Category: STAR WARS- Galaxy's Edge


In just a few more days, you will finally be able to visit Batuu at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  Last week, our family had the privilege to visit during the Passholder’s preview and the new land definitely lived up to the hype. 

When you first walk into this fully immersive land, there is an overall feeling that you are about to embark on an adventure like no other.  We had a game plan to run straight to smugglers run, but once we entered, we were sidetracked because nostalgia quickly set in.  I was 7 years old when Star Wars was originally released in theaters and I saw it more times than I can count.  I immediately set my eyes on Luke Skywalker’s Landspeeder and felt as if I hyperspeeded back in time back to when I was a young girl.  We stopped to have our photo taken before we proceeded with our exploration.


Intergalactic travelers (aka visitors) may want to brush up on their Batuuese (the language spoken) as every cast member remains in character the entire time.  When conversing, you are likely to be asked if your allegiance is to the Resistance or if you are loyal to The First Order.  But be careful as you never know when a Storm Trooper will start following you throughout Black Spire Outpost to question your loyalty!  The more you are able to converse with this language, the more immersive your experience will be.    

While visiting Batuu, you can build the "Droid You Were Looking For" at the Droid Depot, you can customize your own light saber at Savi’s Workshop or quench your thirst at Oga’s Cantina.  Due to high demand, I would strongly suggest making a reservation as early as possible to any of these three experiences to ensure you will be able to participate.  Just be sure to read the full details including cancellation policy, because there are strict guidelines and policies. 

Jake and I decided to eat at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo.  Jake had the Smoked Kaadu Ribs and I had the Fried Endorian Tip-Yip.  Both were our of this world but know the ribs have some serious spice to them. If you order the Tip-Yip, ask for the sauce on the side as that also has a kick to it.  We also ordered the Moff Juice & Sour Sarlacc and they were quite refreshing on a hot August day.  My daughter went the preview the day before with her Uncle and they ate at Ronto Roasters and reported back that the grilled sausage was delicious.  They said the sweet and savory popcorn from Kat Saka's Kettle was worth getting!  Collectors alike will be thrilled with the refillable popcorn bucket.  Sorry to report, we did not get the chance to try the blue or green milk (yet).

After a few more photos and exploration, it was time to ride Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run. I am unable to ride but Jake went on 4 times and was able to be the Pilot, The Gunner & The Engineer (twice).   During the preview, I heard a few travelers say they enjoyed the ride, even though it was not what they expected.  He felt the same way, but quickly figured out a few tips on making his run more successful.  Without any spoilers, the better your team does, the more you will see and the further you will go. Now that he figured out how to get far, it’s one of the top rides on his list!  Should you see us wandering around Black Spire Outpost, feel free to ask him how.  He can hardly wait for Star Wars: Rise of The Resistance to open December 5, 2019
