Disneyland Unveils New Guide Map That Includes Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge
The 14-acre Galaxy’s Edge takes up Disneyland’s back left corner, where it will be accessible from Fantasyland, Critter Country and Frontierland.
The colorful rendering provides a first look into what Galaxy’s Edge will look like on opening day. On the map, there is a Millenium Falcon parked in Black Spire Outpost, which is described as a bustling trading port on the planet Batuu.

7 days and counting until the all-new land, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, opens at Disneyland Park! Check the Disney Parks Blog at the link in our bio for a first look at the Disneyland Park guidemap to help you “map” out your Star Wars adventure. #StarWars #GalaxysEdge #Disneyland
Smuggler’s Run allows guests to fly the Millennium Falcon using state-of-the-art video rendering technology. There are also shops in which guests can build their own lightsabers, and restaurants like Oga’s Cantina will serve galactic fare like Blue Milk and fried Endorian tip-yip.
Galaxy’s Edge is a major investment for Disney’s parks and resorts unit. The company reportedly spent $1 billion creating an immersive experience for guests.
When guests pilot the Millennium Falcon, their choices on the ride will impact their experiences in the rest of Galaxy’s Edge.
“We want the place to feel deep, so that your relationship with it can also have that kind of depth,” Disney Imagineer Scott Trowbridge, the creative force behind the expansion, told CNN Business last month.
A second Galaxy’s Edge will open at Disney World in Florida in late August.
