Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is officially open today at Disneyland Park. The largest single-themed land expansion ever in a Disney park offers guests the chance to take part in a number of attractions and events from a galaxy far, far away. 

Attractions run the gamut from taking the controls of the Millennium Falcon in Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run to being a part of missions, games and in-line experiences while visiting the Black Spire Outpost via the Play Disney Parks mobile app. One of those games, “Outpost Control,” will allow travelers to join up with either the Resistance or the First Order and take part in a battle for control throughout the area. Players will be able to choose to support either the Resistance or the First Order by hacking the blinking light panels next to doorways throughout the Black Spire Outpost. The faction that controls the majority of these panels first wins the game. The conflict plays out multiple times per day. 

Guests will also have the chance to craft their own lightsaber at Savi’s Workshop, or build a droid inside the Droid Depot

Guests will also have the chance to taste the infamous blue milk at the Milk Stand in Black Spire Outpost. (A green milk variant is also available.)

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is also set to open August 29 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida
