New Details on How the Play Disney Parks App Will be Used in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

Using the Play Disney Parks mobile app guests will be able to explore Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in a new interactive way. The Play Disney Parks mobile app will turn your mobile device into a Datapad, which will serve as a tool that can “uncover some surprises” throughout Batuu.

The app will allow you to “hack” into “certain door panels or droids to see their memories.” Another tool you’ll have in your arsenal using the app is the “scanning” tool, which allows guests to “peek inside of cargo crates you may spot while walking around.” The “translation” tool helps guests understand the Aurebesh language decrypting the signage throughout Black Spire Outpost. Lastly, the app has a “tuning” feature that allows you to listen to secret messages.

The First Order will be trying to “install surveillance devices in door panels to spy on the Resistance.” Using your Datapad you can help either the First Order or the Resistance in controlling the land. The winners of this challenge might be rewarded with galactic credits.

In line for Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run you’ll be able to use your Datapad to help Hondo Ohnaka as you prep the Millennium Falcon for takeoff!

The Play Disney Parks app is available on the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens at the Disneyland Resort on May 31, 2019, and at Walt Disney World Resort on August 29, 2019.
