There’s an adventure brewing in a galaxy far, far away – Disney’s Hollywood Studios®, to be exact. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge pulls out all the stops with intergalactic experiences nearly indistinguishable from those featured on the silver screen.
At Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, even the dining is on theme. Feast on your galactic favorites inside a working hangar bay at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo or sample curious concoctions at Oga’s Cantina. Whether you’ve proclaimed your allegiance to the mighty First Order or you’ve opted to aid a daring mission with the Resistance, you’ll find plenty of options to shop for recruitment gear, discover exotic creatures from across the galaxy and collect unusual antiquities to take home with you. You can even build your own lightsaber or design and assemble a customized droid. All in all, this land is a must-do for Star Wars fans and adventure-seekers alike.
Pandora – The World of Avatar
Connect with nature on an inspiring hike through the lush Mo’ara Valley, where you could meet a Pandora Ranger operating a towering Exo-Carrier Utility Suit, have your face painted with authentic Pandoran markings or stumble upon a Na’vi-built drum circle with instruments playable by all. After your adventures, tuck inside the Quonset-hut of Satu’li Canteen — a former RDA mess hall turned peaceful eatery festooned with unique Na’vi art and cultural items — or trek to the corner of Windtraders to Pongu Pongu, a curious drink stand run by an expat who fell in love with Pandora and never left. With dreamy landscapes, exciting rides and on-theme shops selling everything from science kits to Na’vi jewelry, Pandora – The World of Avatar is equally thrilling for both fantasy-lovers and fans of the movie.
It’s a draw! Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and Pandora – The World of Avatar both offer out-of-this-world experiences that need to be experienced to be believed. Depending on the age of your explorers, both parks offer attractions and dining experiences that skirt the line between sci-fi and fantasy in bold, unexpected ways. Our advice? Add an extra day to your stay to make time for both.
