On Tuesday, Downtown Disney Guests noticed a big change at one of the Disney storefronts. The WonderGround Gallery — known for selling Disney artwork — was replaced with a space entirely dedicated to selling Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge merchandise.
The WonderGround Gallery sign has been covered up with Batuu-style fabric, and small “Star Wars Trading Post” signs have been placed in the windows.
Within the store, Guests can shop for merchandise typically found at Galaxy’s Edge, from clothing to plush toys to lightsabers and even kyber crystals. These items were only sold at Black Spire Outpost before, so the fact that they can now be purchased outside of Disneyland park is a huge deal for Galaxy’s Edge fans in southern California, or those who have really been missing Batuu.

New store has arrived at Downtown Disney!!! What use to be Wonder ground Gallery is now gone and now become Star Wars Outpost which has just received a huge shipment from Batuu!!! This store is incredible ????? . . #disneyland #disneylandnews #disneylandresort #disney #galaxysedge #starwars #downtowndisney
But will this storefront ever return to WonderGround Gallery? And how long will this new Star Wars Trading Post be available in Downtown Disney for Guests to purchase their Galaxy’s Edge items? According to Disney officials, this Star Wars Trading Post offering will be available for the foreseeable future.
Below is a bit more information about what Guests can expect:
Star Wars Trading Post features authentic products from Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. From creatures to lightsabers, Guests can prepare for an upcoming journey to Batuu with these fun items:
• Legacy Lightsabers
• Pre-Built Droids
• Adult & Youth Robes
• Plush & Artisan Toys
• And more!
There is no word on when Guests will be able to return to Batuu to pilot the Millennium Falcon again, as Disney is still awaiting more news from the state when it comes to the reopening of Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. But until then, it’s great news that Star Wars fans can get their fix at Downtown Disney.
We will update Inside the Magic with more information pertaining to the offerings at Downtown Disney or the operations of Disneyland Resort as it is released.
