This week, we continued our blog coverage of Star Wars at Disney Parks with several exciting updates, including sharing the location of the immersive resort planned for the Walt Disney World Resort.

Disney Parks Blog readers were among the first to learn the location of the Star Wars-inspired destination, which is currently under development on the south side of Disney’s Hollywood Studios, just east of World Drive. This location will allow the experience to be seamlessly connected to the highly-anticipated Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, enabling guests to fully immerse themselves in the story of Star Wars.

Black Spire Outpost

And earlier this week, we revealed that the name of the village in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is Black Spire Outpost. The largest settlement on the planet Batuu, Black Spire Outpost is an infamous stop for traders, adventurers, and smugglers traveling around the Outer Rim and Wild Space.

Visit our original Black Spire Outpost story to learn more about the history behind the name and how the village is closely associated with the geological formations that surround it.

Mobile Ordering at Disneyland Resort

And at Disneyland Resort, we shared news about the new mobile ordering service now available on the Disneyland App.

To order from any of the 15 fast casual and quick-service restaurant locations, download the Disneyland App (or install the latest app update) and follow the prompts to register for an account. From there, you can search for a participating location, select an arrival time window for pickup, choose items from the menu and place an order.
