It wouldn't be Star Wars without ships, speeders and transportation vehicles, and you can find several, built at full scale, throughout the landscape of Batuu.


A-wing Starfighter

Location: Resistance Mobile Command Post

With its sleek arrowhead shape, streamlined cockpit and massive twin engines, the A-wing suggests raw speed. Used first by the Rebel Alliance and now the Resistance, it is well suited for quick strikes.

First Order TIE echelon

Location: Docking Bay 9 (First Order Encampment)

A new assault vehicle in the TIE (twin ion engine) series, this echelon shuttle is used by the First Order mainly for small troop and cargo transport.

Landspeeders

Location: Black Spire Station

There are two models of speeders in for repairs in the garage at Black Spire Station: an X-34 model, similar to one Luke Skywalker uses in “Star Wars: A New Hope,” and a Jakku speeder, built from scavenged parts.

Millennium Falcon

Location: Spaceport

Once flown by iconic smuggler Han Solo and his Wookiee first mate, Chewbacca, the Millennium Falcon is sometimes lovingly referred to as “the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy.” The YT-1300 Corellian freighter is currently being loaned to Hondo Ohnaka, the former pirate who owns and operates Ohnaka Transport Solutions.

Sienar-Chall Utilipede-Transport

Location: Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo

Chef Strono “Cookie” Tuggs uses this modified shuttle as a mobile kitchen and restaurant, jumping from one planet to the next as a “traveling diner for diners traveling.” It is currently atop Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo, turning the hangar into a dining establishment in Black Spire Outpost.

X-wing Starfighter

Location: Resistance Mobile Command Post

A versatile ship balancing speed and firepower, the X-wing is a nimble starfighter used in dogfights first by the Rebel Alliance and now the Resistance. Its name comes from the “X” its four wings create when they’re locked in attack position.

Finally had the chance to ride RotR at DLR. Best Disney ride built in the USA since RSR in Cars Land. Got to see both routes the cars take you, and it was A-mode for Kylo Ren both times. As far as Disney trackless dark rides, I think I still like Mystic Manor better, though. I prefer the theme and there's more to look at.

Did they get rid of the themed bags? I have two different versions - the regular plasticy ones that are (unfortunately) Dallas Cowboy colored and a more canvassy one that is burgundy and has Black Spire Outpost on it. They were available as of Thanksgiving week 2020.

Absolutely. It’s quite baffling to me they don’t have custom bags for the land (could also use them in the SW shops in Disney Springs). I mean they have like a dozen shops in GE.

I still find the use of generic “Disney Parks” bags the most ridiculous considering the lengths and expense they went to remove credit card and Coca Cola product names, etc from these lands. In addition to no BGM as it was deemed not thematically appropriate.

Lol i was there opening weekend (before ROTR was open) i remember the forest area just having all of those industrial fans in the shrubbery....i have never seen something make less sense in a theme park so the only sounds were a constant brrrrrrr of fans. To each there own but the music around TWWOHP never came across as too overwhelming. Its the perfect volume.

I like that the land itself doesn’t have SW music blasting all over and instead has ambiance sounds… but I’d agree with having SW music at the entrance points to set the mood

We went last week at DHS and Bespin Fizz was on the menu and all the drinks were in different glasses (I assume appropriate ones for each). The Fizz was smoking when it came out. there was no rushing us out. We were able to stay as long as we wanted. The music wasn’t loud but it was certainly audible. Tough to hear too clearly due to the number of people but about what you’d expect for any crowded place

Not much has changed, as far as I can tell. Drinks were being served in their appropriate glassware and guests were smiling at the Rex and the overall vibe. It actually felt like a far more settled experience, in a good way, since last time I went. Hosts/bartenders weren't rushing people out like before.

I haven't been in Oga's at DHS since before the Pandemic. We did get into Oga's at DLR this past week though and the "atmosphere" has changed significantly. At DLR, they turned down the volume of REX and the music where you can hardly hear it, they are using generic glasses for all drinks instead of drink-specific glasses, and they no longer serve the Bespin Fizz. Before March 2020, I could have stayed all day in Oga's. It was fun and interactive. This past week, I powered my drinks down and couldn't wait to get out of there. So, what is Oga's like at DHS these days? Have they incorporated these same changes in Florida?

I found the answer in a reddit thread where someone else asked the same question.

According to the Cantina's page on the official site, it looks like it's open up to an hour after park close. But the reservation I saw was 10 minutes before Oga's closing time. So I guess 10:00pm is last call and everyone has to be out by 10:30pm? The page says 45 min max per party.

Is Oga's open after park close? I saw reservations available after the official closing time. Could be that they plan to extend hours though.
