You no longer have to go to a galaxy far, far away, to get your fill of Star Wars vibes, movie fans.

An epic Star Wars theme park is opening at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, so you can now live out your wildest Star Wars fantasies in ways you could’ve never dreamed of.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is officially opening on Friday, May 31, when it will welcome the public into its land of adventure.

The park will feature two signature attractions – Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, opening May 31, 2019, and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, opening later this year.

Visit the park to ride in the famous cockpit of the Millennium Falcon on a daring flight at intense high speeds.

You can also travel to the workshop in Black Spire Outpost to build your very own customizable lightsaber to help you be one with the force.

Once in the workshop, you can even build your own droid from a blueprint – a custom Astromech droid that’s your choice of the BB-series unit or R-series unit.

The park also offers an epic galactic dining experience set to please the appetite of any hungry adventurer, including snacks, food, coffee, and cocktails.

Oga’s local cantina has an expansive menu of exotic concoctions for young ones and even a number of drinks for adults, including the Jedi Mind Trick cocktail, Bad Motivator IPA, or Toniray wine.

There are other food options if guests are looking for something heartier, including heading over to Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo, a restaurant housed in a working hangar bay.

The park wouldn’t be complete without a Milk Stand so that adventurers can sip on the blue or green milk that Luke Skywalker famously drank in The Last Jedi.

You can even shop around for a galactic souvenir at Dok Ondar’s Den of antiquities, or find an outfit for your galactic adventures at Black Spire outfitters.

Reservations are required for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge visits between May 31 and June 23, 2019. There are no costs to make the reservation, but spots are subject to availability.

Beginning June 24, 2019, a separate reservation will no longer be required though capacity for the park, and its experiences, will be limited.

With no shortage of things to do for adventurers of all ages – what are you waiting for?
