Don't have a reservation for Galaxy's Edge? Or need to kill some time waiting for your boarding party to be cleared for entry? There is still plenty of Star Wars fun to be had around the Disneyland Resort even from outside Batuu - and it tends to be a lot cheaper, too! Here's every way to enjoy this far, far away galaxy with little to no planning whatsoever.

- THE VOID - STAR WARS: SECRETS OF THE EMPIRE | Downtown Disney - We've touted this amazing virtual reality experience before and that's because it's so awesome! It does cost a little bit, but after you're done facing off against Imperial forces and becoming part of a Star Wars canon story you'll realize it's totally worth it. Guarantee your spot by making reservations in advance at The VOID's website.
- STAR WARS LAUNCH BAY | Tomorrowland - Sure, this place will get busy occasionally through 23 June with all the Galaxy's Edge guests checking in for their reservations, but inside you'll still find recreations of ships, weapons and costumes from the entire Star Wars saga as well as meet-and-greets with the likes of Chewbacca, Darth Vader or Kylo Ren. It's also a great way to get out of the heat on a hot Californian summer day.
- GALACTIC GRILL | Tomorrowland - The food may not be near as exotic as what they serve at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo, but this traditional-style menu will certainly appeal to the whole family, cost much less, and still features dishes inspired by Star Wars characters. Most importantly - the food's really good!
