Fans have been waiting for the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at the Disneyland Resort for years. How much money should you expect this immersive experience to cost?
Since it was announced in 2015, Star Wars fans have had one thing on their mind: “Will I be fully transported to a galaxy far, far away?” The answer is one hundred percent…but it’s going to cost you. I’m here to break down just how much money you should expect to spend at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland if you plan to fully immerse in this world. Remember, for the opening month of the 14-acre land expansion, annual passports discounts will not be accepted.
Disclaimer: Not all of these items need to be purchased in order to have a fulfilling experience at Galaxy’s Edge. This list is geared towards Star Wars fans who want to feel like they are a part of the story of the land. Prices are subjected to change, but this is how they will appear on Opening Day, May 31.
Admission into the park: $122-$149
Your first purchase on your quest to Black Spire Outpost is a theme park admission ticket into the Disneyland park. There is no separate ticket to enter Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge (you need a reservation to enter the land May 31-June 23). If you do not have an annual pass to the park, you can purchase a one-day, one park general admission on the Disneyland app or on the disneyland.com website for $122 for guests 3-9 years old, and $129 for guests 10+ years old on opening day. Starting June 1, prices increase to $141 for guests 3-9 years old, $149 for guests 10+ years old. Once you have acquired a ticket, you are on your way to your intergalactic travels!
Lightsaber (Legacy/Handbuilt): $108.86-$217.74
Every Star Wars fan dreams about the day they can create their own lightsaber. Now we can at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, thanks to Savi’s Workshop! For intergalactic travelers lucky enough to find the password to the hidden workshop, the secrets of the Force can be unlocked. Create a custom handbuilt lightsaber based off of one of four categories: Peace and Justice (Jedi era), Power and Control (Sith era), Elemental Nature, and Protect and Defense (the era of the Old Republic). After you have built the body of your lightsaber, you will choose a Kyber crystal from an assortment of iconic colors: blue, green, red, and purple. You will also be provided the “blade” part of your lightsaber. How much does this entire experience cost? $199.99 before sales tax, $217.74 after. These handbuilt lightsabers are battle-ready and will last a long time.
But what if you wanted to have an exact replica of one of the movie lightsabers, from Force wielders such as Luke Skywalker, Mace Windu, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, and Darth Vader? Savi’s Workshop has Legacy Lightsabers for the price of $99.99 ($108.86 after sales tax). However, the Legacy Lightsabers do not come with a “blade”part. In fact, the lightsaber “blade” is sold separately for $49.99 before sales tax, $54.43 after.
After you have your lightsaber, you can purchase a Kyber crystal from a large array of crystal colors (yellow, white, etc.) for the price of $14.99 before sales tax, $16.32 after.
Handbuilt Droids: $108.86
In the Star Wars universe, no hero is complete without their droid. At Galaxy’s Edge, guests can build their own remote-controlled BB unit or R2 unit at Droid Depot for the base price of $99.99 before sales tax, $108.86 after sales tax. The experience has guests choose the color scheme of their Droid in all aspects. After having completed their droid, guests can further customize their droid with body decal stickers and accessories.

Furthermore, guests can purchase personality chips to have their droid interact with the land. These personality chips come in one of three allegiances: First Order, Resistance, and Smugglers. With an installed personality chip, droids will react to their surroundings. For example, if a droid has a First Order personality chip installed, they will begin to make chirps and beeps to voice discomfort if they are in the Resistance area. You can purchase a personality chip for $13.99, or $15.23 with sales tax.
Intergalactic Food: $7.99-$34.99
Blue Milk and Green Milk can be found in the Black Spire Outpost milk stand inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. For the price of $7.99 ($8.70 after sales tax), fans will finally be able to drink the iconic non-dairy beverage. Whether you choose to drink the rice-milk-based Blue Milk or the coconut-milk-based Green Milk, this drink is a must-have!
Other drink options come from Oga’s Cantina, the authentic Star Wars-themed cantina. Being a traditional cantina, intergalactic travelers can partake in either alcoholic or non-alcoholic concoctions (reminder, alcoholic drinks must be consumed within the cantina and cannot be taken outside to the rest of the land). These mix drinks are offered all day, with some being specific to breakfast offerings and dinner offerings.
Throughout the land, there are food offerings that show the exotic culture of Black Spire Outpost. The best in galactic dining include Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo, where hungry travelers can head inside a working hangar bay to feast on galactic favorites.

In the bazaar of Black Spire Outpost, guests can be fully equipped with the galaxy’s finest apparel, rarest antiquities, and adorable toys. One of the most iconic of these toys is the wearable Salacius Crumb replica. Similar to the wearable Banshees found in Pandora at the Walt Disney World Animal Kingdom park, this Kowakian monkey-lizard can be found at Toydarian Toymaker shop for the price of $74.99 ($81.65 after sales tax). Guests who want to immerse themselves in the cultural attire of Batuu can purchase movie replica outfits of some of your favorite Star Wars characters at Black Spire Outfitters. For those who want to take the custom droid experience to the next level, Star Wars fans can purchase a remote-controlled, customizable R2D2 replica for $24999.99 ($27,218.74 after sales tax).
So, after all of the opportunities listed above – with the exception of the R2D2 replica – a Star Wars fan who pay for a fully immersive experience with all the bells and whistles can expect to spend between $394.71 and $716.36 per intergalactic travel.
