Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge


No day at Hollywood Studios is complete with out a visit to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Also known as Star Wars Land, this area encompasses 14 acres and will immerse you in Star Wars Theming.


There are attractions, shops, and restaurants here that will truly make you feel like you are in a galaxy far, far, away.


Green Milk in Star Wars Land


Our favorite stop is the Milk Stand where you can get Blue or Green milk shown in the movies. My favorite is the green, but my family likes the blue. Tell me in the comments below which one you prefer.


Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run


Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run is one of the two attractions in Galaxy’s Edge. The other is Rise of the Resistance which happened to be closed the day of our visit because it had recently been struck by lightning!

Half the fun of riding Millennium Falcon is the theming in the queue. Disney pulled out all of the stops to give guests an amazing experience.


For the ride, Each member of your group will be given the job of pilot, engineer, or gunner and will sit accordingly inside the Millennium Falcon.

Each of these jobs requires you to push buttons and move levers to steer the ship, but don’t worry, they light up when it’s time to use them.


When shopping in Galaxy’s Edge, there is only one group or family allowed in each shop at a time. And don’t forget to wear your mask!


Star Tours – The Adventures Continue


Just outside of Galaxy’s Edge, you can have more Star Wars fun by riding Star Tours-The Adventures Continue.

Vacation Fun starring Mickey & Minnie is an animated short film that features fun vacations the Mickey & Minnie have taken. It’s a great place to escape the heat and take a break for a few minutes.

My husband ordered Mom’s Old Fashioned Pot Roast and I ordered Cousin Megan’s Traditional Meatloaf, with the intent to share. But my husband loved the pot roast so much, sharing didn’t happen.

My boys ordered Grandma’s Macaroni and cheese and Grandpa’s grilled chicken. They each had a cupcake that came with tons of frosting.
