The Star Wars Trading Post is a store designed after a hidden Resistance base from the “Star Wars” universe. Disney describes it as follows:
Spot Rey’s iconic speeder outside the entrance to this new shop, inspired by the look and feel of a hidden jungle Resistance base. Once inside, you’ll uncover an exciting variety of authentic “Star Wars” merchandise—from “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” gear to novelties inspired by “The Mandalorian.”
This line launched as part of the Disney Parks celebration of “Star Wars” month, and much of it is also available at Walt Disney World Resort in Hollywood Studios.
