You’ll be immersed in the alluring offerings of a mysterious outpost that’s a haven for scoundrels, rogues and smugglers. Around corners and through back alleys, you can encounter strange creatures and alien languages. Touch ancient antiquities from across the galaxy. You can build your own droids and a custom lightsaber. And be sure to drop by the cantina to sample the local beverages and curious concoctions. This marketplace summons your senses to life like never before.

On Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, you’ll board the Millennium Falcon, where legends have been made and new ones are about to be created. You and your crew are part of a covert mission that directs you to take control of the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy.

Along the way you’ll face excitement around every turn and sway, plus the looming threat of the First Order!

Next, it’s Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, opening later in the year. Steady your nerves and summon your resolve—because you and other Resistance recruits have boarded a transport that has been captured by a Star Destroyer. In an instant, you’ll be caught in blaster fire from stormtroopers surrounding you. And if that’s not enough, you’ll discover how huge the excitement can get when you round a corner and discover a towering AT-AT—with its lasers pointed…Right. At. You. At last, a sudden red glow cuts the darkness and the crackle of a lightsaber announces an inevitable showdown with Kylo Ren himself.

So, raise a glass of Blue Milk. Because soon the time will come to live your adventure in a galaxy far, far away at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

And that’s before you even get to World of Disney — the largest Character store on the planet, packed with apparel, collectibles and of course, Disney toys.

Unique entertainment

There’s always plenty to do at Disney Springs. Day or night, enjoy a ride in a tethered helium balloon or a vintage Amphicar, catch a movie at AMC 24 Dine-In Theatre, or score big bowling at Splitsville Luxury Lanes. Once the sun sets, this late-night hotspot offers plenty of live entertainment and incredible, one-of-a-kind venues that are perfect for a special night out

Delicious dining

Whether you’re craving spicy tuna sushi rolls or wood-fired paella, Disney Springs has over 50 drool-worthy eateries on the menu, offering everything from quick bites to special meals. There are restaurants that double down on family fun, spectacular rooftop patios, food trucks, and even a dinosaur-themed café!
