Play Disney Parks App


As guests explore Black Spire Outpost they can use the Play Disney Parks app to learn more about the events unfolding before them and become part of the story themselves.

There are surveillance box embedded into walls around town and guests can use the app to "hack" into them by solving puzzles. Guests can choose to deactivate them for the Resistance or activate them for the First Order.

There will be markers on containers and buildings that reveal more about the story. Both rides will have these in the queues. Some labels will be encrypted and need guests to solve a puzzle. The app is also a translator as natives of the land will be speaking their own languages.

Another feature is Tuning which helps guests listening in on broadcasts between the underworld, First Order, and Resistance.

Guests never actually choose a side in Black Spire Outpost but they can help either side. Your story is dictated by the simple action you take. The Play Disney Parks app allows visitors to engage with full scale droids and take on jobs with characters. There will be points awarded for completing tasks.

Use the “hacking” feature to interact with certain door panels or droids to see their memories, or open your “scanning” tool to peek inside of cargo crates you may spot while walking around. The handy “translation” tool will help you understand Aurebesh (the written language of the Star Warsgalaxy) signs throughout Black Spire Outpost, and you can even tap into and decrypt signals from antennas or communications devices and listen to secret messages with the “tuning” feature.

Throughout Black Spire Outpost, the First Order is trying to install surveillance devices in door panels to spy on the Resistance. Use your Datapad to join in “Outpost Control,” a landwide game, and choose to support either side as they vie for a hold on the land. Winners may even find themselves rewarded with galactic credits for their efforts.


Your Star Wars adventure continues when you make your way to get in line at Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. While getting ready to board the most famous ship in the galaxy, you can even take on a job for Hondo Ohnaka, the pirate turned “legitimate” businessman operating Ohnaka Transport Solutions out of Black Spire Outpost. Reroute misplaced cargo, learn how to keep your cover under pressure and prep the Falcon for your flight in this in-queue game!

MAXIMIZE THE MOMENT ON YOUR MOBILE PHONE

Make the most of your first—or hundredth—visit to Batuu by downloading the Play Disney Parks mobile app. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is the first land designed to integrate with the one-of-a-kind app, which debuted last summer and offers interactive adventures and experiences that bring surrounding environments to life at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort.

The app will provide new opportunities for guests to engage with the land, like translating a galactic language, learning what’s hidden inside crates and containers, or accomplishing certain tasks by participating in missions. Guests also can use the app to interact with a variety of elements, like antenna arrays, door panels, drinking fountains, droids, media screens, and ships.

    I am worried about so much of it being on the app. As is I am lucky if the app works at all 50% of the time on my phone

    Just worried relying so much on disney IT infrastructure
    I totally agree! I understand how at Disneyland the play parks app is needed but with everyone on Disney's wifi I could see the app crashing. Plus it drains your battery significantly. I hope DHS uses both the play app and magic bands but it doesn't seem like that's going to be the case.

    Well this is the Play Disney Parks app not MDE so different set up. I do agree though that it might get overloaded with this addition. I’ve only used the Play app a couple times.

    yeah, I meant the Play App - both that and the MDE app both crash/freeze/won't work more often than they work for me

    To initially download the play app will require WiFi, but apparently many of the interactions only require Bluetooth. That will also help with battery life!
