BRIGHT SUNS! It’s blog five of our countdown and we’re here to show you the best Instagram photo spots at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge! This new addition to Disney’s Hollywood Studios® opens on August 29th, 2019, so read along to make the best out of capturing your visit!
(Haven’t read our last blog yet? Make sure you check that out here! Hint: A POV of a long-awaited attraction aboard the Millennium Falcon)
1 – The “Han & Leia” Booth
Famous for the iconic first kiss between Han Solo and Princess Leia, this booth can be found inside of the queue for Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. If you’re able to have a seat for a moment, take advantage of this stand-out photo spot. It has the perfect combination of cinematic history and photogenic aesthetic for any Star Wars fan!
2 – The Booths At Oga’s Cantina
Booths are suddenly a running theme and for good reason. The ambient lighting of Oga’s Cantina sets a warmer mood than the previous mention. Gather around with everyone or just yourself, have some drinks from the bar in hand, and snap some shots!
3 – The First Order Wall
For many visitors, finding colorful or simple walls has become a growing trend, so why not have one in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge? We found a wall under a flag for the First Order, and regardless on which side you’re on, it’s a pretty rustic photo spot. Take a close-up shot with just the wall! Or. have your photographer stand further to show your connection to the First Order.
4 – In Front of Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run
Good morning with “Bright Suns” and good evening with “Rising Moons”. This is probably the best focal point in all of Batuu.
Whether during the daytime or later on in the evening, you’ll capture a beautiful picture with an out-of-this-world backdrop. It’s also a great spot to take photos with your newly-built droid or custom lightsaber!
5 – Savi’s Workshop
We bet you didn’t think of this one! Venture into Savi’s Workshop to create your personalized lightsaber. Choose your side and pose with your finished product in this exclusive building, only accessible to lightsaber-builders. It’s a great room for pops of color, dim lighting, and presenting your newest creation.
6 – The Stairs by Ronto Roasters
When we were traveling through Batuu, we noticed this set of stairs close to Ronto Roasters that no one was taking advantage of! This spot is AMAZING for its theming and the backdrop that seems to go on forever. The way its layout stands makes Batuu seem to go for miles. We absolutely loved it and think it’s definitely Instagram-worthy.
7 – The Market
With the lights from above and the hint of sunlight shining through, the lighting here makes for beautiful photographs. There are so many possibilities for great photos here and with the details throughout, this lands in one of our top favorite spots! Wear your best outfit and get ready to pose at The Market.
8 – First Order TIE echelon
And last (but certainly not least) we have the First Order TIE echelon. The closer you are to this ship, the cooler it looks. If you side with the first order, this will be your go-to place for stunning photos!
Til The Spire
The countdown is nearing its end! It’s time to purchase your Disney Theme Park tickets and get ready for the grand opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Book your Magical Vacation Home, pack your bags, and prepare for the galaxy NOT so far away.
Stay tuned for Monday where we’ll go over everything you can eat while on your trip to Batuu!
Until then, Til the Spire, and have a Magical day!
