Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is the most technologically advanced land that Disney – and perhaps anybody – has ever built. It’s the first land designed to integrate with an app too.

Play Disney Parks debuted last year and enhanced guests’ experience in the theme parks, in queue lines, in Disney resort hotels, and even from home.

Now, when you enter the Batuu limits, your Play Disney Parks app transforms your smartphone into your very own datapad. As you explore the 14 acres of Galaxy’s Edge and use the app, the land comes to life! You can even earn Galactic Credits and build your own personal profile; the more you do, the more detailed your profile.

This version of the app allows you to engage with the land in an entirely new way. You can translate Aurebesh and other alien languages, scan cargo containers and find out what inside, hack door panels and interact with droids, and tune antenna arrays to eavesdrop on the First Order and the Resistance. It’s up to you what you do with the information that you gather; your actions will have an effect on the land and other guests, so choose wisely.

Check out this video for details on how to use the app to find an active door panel, hack it, and earn points!

Here are some photos which show the process also:

Look at the details in the land. How about this interesting door in an archway with a controller nearby?
