SWGE GUIDE: Inside ‘Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run’ at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland

20190531_212348

The Millennium Falcon is docked at the Black Spire Outpost on Batuu in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and she’s looking for a flight crew to help pilot her on a new adventure on the new Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. This is no passive experience, every crew member on board must do their part to aide in the journey.

If you’re connected through the Play Disney Parks app, your journey will be logged and the results of your efforts will recorded onto your gaming account where you will either earn credits or owe them back for all the damage that you caused!

20190531_213028Below are some of the safety and experience considerations for Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run!

  • Height Limit: 38” (97 cm) or Taller
  • 3D Glasses: No
  • FastPass / MaxPass: Not offered
  • Single Rider: Available
  • Accessibility: Guests must transfer from Wheelchair/ECV onto a high-backed seat which requires a seatbelt. A separate boarding experience is offered for guests who need more time for loading.
  • Experiences: Thrill ride that is dark, loud, and features simulated drops similar to a motion simulator like Star Tours

If you’re in the land when Disneyland does the fireworks, you’ll be in for a special treat as a battle erupts over the sky with the Millennium Falcon as backdrop. There’s no musical accompaniment for the dazzling spectacle. Would be amazing if Disney integrated drones flying back and forth over the mountain range as the fireworks ensued.

Inside the Queue

The entrance has no obvious attraction marquee. You’re entering Ohnaka Transport Solutions which is currently in possession of the Millennium Falcon.

The attraction is FastPass / MaxPass ready but for now it does not offer this service. However, the scanners are currently used to redeem return times for guests with disabilities.

Hondo Ohnaka is the proprietor for Ohnaka Transport Solutions and he’s looking for flight crews to help be pilots, gunners, and engineers. He’s so pressed for help that he’s willing to take crew members with no prior experience. GOOD LUCK!

Workers at Ohnaka Transport Solutions will hand guests color-coded tickets. Each boarding group can accommodate up to six guests and parties might be mixed with other smaller parties including Single Riders.

Three to four groups are found are inside the ship with you but there’s time to look around the ship and take photos. And trust us, you’ll want to take photos…

The Djarik holochess table is not in working order but you can still sit around it for a classic photo-op.

Walk the storied hallway like the best of them!

Get final instruction from Hondo on a screen before entering the cockpit. Maybe spot a Hidden Mickey while you’re at it.

Enter the cockpit and get ready for your ride!

The cockpit has six seats for two pilots, two gunners, and two engineers. Hondo Ohnaka joins you on the journey giving direction to left and right positions independently.

Kiss your lucky dice and get ready for a bumpy ride!

Depending on how much damage your mission encounters, you’ll either be rewarded with galactic credits or end up owing Hondo a lot of space bucks.

The damage is tallied at the end and Hondo will let you know how well you did.

Exiting the Attraction

Depending on how well you did, the appearance of the Millennium Falcon as you exit will vary. As you can see here, we did pretty well our first voyage. #HumbleBrag. Less fortunate pilots, gunners, and engineers may see more emergency lights flashing and malfunctioning modules as they exit the ship.

The exit hallways inside of Ohnaka Transport Solutions will feel oddly familiar to Star Wars fans and yet completely new and different.

If you need a bit of refreshment after your journey, you can fill your water bottle or take a swig and be on your way.
