Who’s excited for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge? We are! Disney just gave us a deeper look into what we are going to see inside the world of Batuu, a remote outpost on Galaxy’s Edge, including food and merchandise.
The new land located inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios doesn’t open for months but Disney is slowly teasing its fans with information. This week the Disney Parks Blog gave everyone a “taste” of what is to be expected when it comes to the food and merchandise on Batuu.
Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo – Chef Strono “Cookie” Tuggs has traveled throughout the galaxy following his longtime gig as the chef at Maz Kanata’s castle on Takodana and brings exotic flavors and unusual dishes to his traveling diner “Tuggs’ Grub.”
Ronto Roasters – A recycled podracing engine fires up a spit of exotic meats, meticulously turned by a former smelter droid, 8D-J8. Guests can even sample some of the tasty Ronto fare.
Milk Stand – The place to go to get your farm-fresh blue milk or green milk, direct from Bubo Wamba Family Farms.
Kat Saka’s Kettle – One of the many street market stalls, this grain vendor sells the ever-popular Outpost Mix (blend of sweet, savory and spicy popcorn).
For those looking to purchase in-story Star Wars merchandise and rare finds from across the galaxy, you need to look no further than our many different Outpost stores and market stalls.
Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities – For those in the know, Dok-Ondar is the Ithorian you seek for selling and buying rare and uniquely-valued items from across the galaxy and spanning all eras.
Savi’s Workshop – Handbuilt Lightsabers – Guests come to the workshop to meet with the Gatherers – a secretive group of people who have dedicated their lives to restoring balance in the galaxy by passing on their knowledge of Jedi lore and the Force. The workshop Master guides guests to customize and build their own unique lightsabers, and instructs them on the ways of the Jedi.
Droid Depot – Visitors to Mubo’s workshop can choose parts and construct their own individual astromech droids to accompany them on their journey, and then take them home with them.
First Order Cargo – A spaceport hangar bay serves as the temporary base and landing spot for the First Order. First Order officers have brought in crates of gear, uniforms and other supplies to win the hearts and minds of locals and visitors to Black Spire Outpost.
Resistance Supply – Resistance members and local sympathizers oversee a makeshift stall that supplies Resistance uniforms, pins, badges, hats, helmets, jackets, maps, tools, training supplies, food rations and other items.
There are also several market stalls which sell a variety of merchandise such as:
Toydarian Toymaker (toys)
Creature Stall (interesting critters that you can take home with you)
Black Spire Outfitters (clothing)
The Jewels of Bith (accessories and other trinkets to treasure)
If this information doesn’t get you even more excited to travel to this far away land, I don’t know what will! Over the coming months, Disney promises to release more information as to what is to be expected when you visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge! Talk about it in our all-new WDW Kingdom Disney Forums!
