You first stop in Black Spire Outpost should be Ronto Roasters to fuel up for the day. The large podracing engine hangs overhead, which fires the barbecue pit, while a former smelter droid carefully turns a spit of meats. This marketplace stall offers mouth-watering Ronto Wraps, including the savory Ronto Morning Wrap. It’s a delicious snack with scrambled eggs, grilled pork sausage, shredded cheese, and peppercorn sauce wrapped in pita.
To market, to market
After breakfast, you can stroll the Black Spire Outpost Marketplace to haggle with vendors from across the galaxy. Black Spire Outfitters has all the latest Batuuan styles and the Creature Stall houses some of the galaxy’s most unique (and cuddly) pets. The marketplace is a great place to explore, with something new to see seemingly around every turn.
Tip: Kowakian Monkey-Lizards and Porgs are among the “critters” you will find at the Creature Stall available for purchase.
Take control of the “fastest hunk of junk”
If you have ever wished to step aboard the “fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy,” now is your chance with Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. You can strap into the Falcon cockpit and take the controls as a pilot, defend as a gunner or maintain the ship’s systems as a flight engineer. It’s up to you and your fellow passengers to smuggle goods while avoiding any unnecessary entanglements.
Tip: The chess-type game played on the table in the Millennium Falcon main hold and lounge is called Dejarik. You can sit at this table and snap a photo with your crew before taking off!
First Order or Resistance?
You should be on the lookout for agents of the First Order or heroes of the Resistance. Supreme Leader Kylo Ren lands at Black Spire Outpost and gathers Stormtroopers to help him hunt for Resistance fighter Rey. You may also encounter Millennium Falcon co-pilot Chewbacca or Resistance spy Vi Moradi.
You can build and customize your own indispensable sidekick at Droid Depot. Guests can step into this immersive workshop stocked with stacks of parts, chips and manuals. They can pick pieces and parts off a conveyor belt to construct one of two core models: BB-series or R-series astromech.
Tip: Droid Depot also offers prebuilt droids, housewares and apparel, all inspired by the design, engineering and building of droids.
Blue or green?
What does Blue Milk taste like? You can head to the Milk Stand to find out! You can sample Blue or Green Milk, which are delicious frozen blends with dashes of fruity accents.
You will notice Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo by the transport shuttle that is sitting atop this food joint. Chef Strono “Cookie” Tuggs’ journeys from system to system allow him to fill his pantry with exotic ingredients he uses to make new and unusual dishes. Perfect for a hearty lunch or dinner, you may want to try smoked Kaadu ribs or Fried Endorian Tip-yip, followed by a Batuu-bon for dessert.
Tip: You can save time by using the mobile ordering feature on the Disneyland app for Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo, Ronto Roaster’s and Milk Stand.
Local watering hole
No trip to Batuu would be complete without a stop at Oga’s Cantina. The heartbeat of Black Spire Outpost, gather with other visitors to share tales from around the galaxy as you enjoy exotic beverages such as the spicy Bloody Rancor, the foamy Fuzzy Tauntaun or the fruity Carbon Freeze.
Tip: You can groove along to the entertaining jams from DJ R-3X, the former droid pilot from Star Tours.
