Tips For Visiting Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Nighttime Star Wars

5. Decide On When You’ll Visit

If you plan on visiting Batuu in the coming weeks, just remember that your time here will be sandwiched between the land’s recent opening and the release of The Rise of Skywalker. As the Force will be particularly strong during this time, it might be best to hold off on your galactic adventure.

If you visit after December 5, you’ll finally get to experience Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. But with the incredibly unique excursion-experience Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser in the works (launch date pending), you may wish to wait a little longer. This will also give you time to make those all-important reservations.

4. Download Play Disney Parks

When you enter Batuu’s Black Spire Outpost, the Play Disney Parks mobile app transforms into the Star Wars: Data Pad. There’s a wealth of activities to be uncovered here, such as decrypting signals, scanning objects and even translating (though you’ll never be quite as multi-lingual as C-3PO).

With the Star Wars: Data Pad you’ll feel like a rebel as you breach locked doors and pick up virtual weapons along the way, as well as collecting rewards for completing missions. The Play Disney Parks mobile app really is the closest thing you’ll get to having the power of the Force in your hands…
