Galaxy’s Edge Attractions & Resort Names Revealed

Star Wars Resort Rendering

ORLANDO, Fla. –  Bob Chapek had a packed house as Destination D fans highly-anticipated the naming of Galaxy’s Edge new attractions, along with other Disney Parks news. Chapek is Disney’s Experience and Consumer Products Chairman, and when he talks, we like to listen!  So, with the closing of an AMAZING week at this years IAAPA, we quickly turn our attention to Disney’s Contemporary Resort. 

Exploring Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

It’s been 3 years since Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge was announced at D23 Expo, and it’s no surprise both Disney and Star Wars fans are eager to hear more. Today, Chapek gave us more! We now have two names for Galaxy’s Edge attractions! 

Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run

One of the most highly anticipated attractions will take fans on an interactive motion-simulator attraction of the most iconic Star Wars starship.

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance

Guests will embark on a battle like no other between the First Order and the Resistance – including a face-off with Kylo Ren.

Black Spire Outpost

The attractions will be located at Black Spire Outpost, a trading outpost located on the planet Batuu. Here is where it gets pretty cool. Visitors of Black Spire will have their scores and reputation built on interactions within the outpost, ultimately affect their score. All which can be tracked in the Play Disney Parks app. Ah, technology!

Star Wars Resort

But Chapek was far from done. He also provided a sneak peek of the groundbreaking Star Wars resort coming to Walt Disney World Resort. This multi-day, fully immersive adventure will take guests aboard a luxury starship with all the features expected of a first-class hotel, including dining, recreation, and accommodations, all authentic to the Star Wars universe. He also announced that the music for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will feature original themes created especially for the land by Academy Award-winning composer John Williams. Chapek shared a stirring preview of the all-new music, recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios.

There is no doubt that these new experiences, paired with the land’s interactive components and optional integration with the Play Disney Parks app, will invite guests to become galactic travelers and live their own Star Wars stories in a galaxy far, far away.
