Star Wars Galaxy's Edge - Disney's Hollywood Studios

Follow the crowd to the new Star Wars Galaxy's Edge entrance at the end of Grand Avenue

There are several different ships on display.  This is an A-Wing

This is an X-wing

The Rise of the Resistance ride is not quite ready, but here is the entrance for it

This is the Market Place at Black Spire Outpost

Lots of interesting shops to explore

The details are amazing

Seriously a very neat looking place

This appears to be a pet shop

At the end of the Marketplace there are several places to get food including Kat Saka's Kettle which has two different types of flavored popcorn

Ronto Roasters is another restaurant that features grilled sausages and pork wraps

Dok-Ondar's Den of Antiquities is an interesting store to check out

It is a very neat looking shop

There is Dok-Ondar taking inventory and keeping an eye on the shop

Some mounted creature heads on the wall

Storm Troopers are on the patrol everywhere in Black Spire Outpost

This is Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo

I had this delicious dish called Endorian Fried Chicken Tip Yip which features crispy chicken with a side of vegetable mashed potatoes and a herb gravy 

The main attraction right now in the new area is Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run

The queue line is an experience in itself

We are pretty confident that this is a pod racer motor that's in the maintenance bay

You get some amazing views of the Millennium Falcon while in line

The first preshow has this amazing animatronic.  You wouldn't be faulted if you thought it was real person

The waiting area to board your cockpit features the famous chess board.  Remember to let the Wookiee win

Heading to our cockpit.  Each cockpit holds 6 passengers.  Each of the 6 are assigned 1 of 3 jobs (2 per job).  

Pilots - which controls the up/down and left/right, as well as the hyperdrive
Gunners - they shoot the cannons to fend off attackers
Engineers - they fire the anchors and also help repair the ship while in flight
You have to work together as a team to score more points and a higher ranking
