From the Toydarian Toymaker'and Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities, to Savi’s Workshop, and the Droid Depot, the merchandise from Galaxy's Edge is made to have an in-universe feel.

"Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will be the first area within the Disney park designed to fully integrate with the Play Disney Parks mobile app, which... will allow guests to find secrets and Easter eggs strewn throughout the land, such as translating a galactic language, participating in smaller side missions and learning about hidden treasures inside crates and containers. The app will also allow guests to interact with the droids roaming around, as well as ships, display screens and even drinking fountains. Disney cast members (park staff) will also be a large part of the land. They will all have newly designed costumes, which we previewed, and they will have character backstories to better interact in the world with guests. One of the more interesting parts of the costume aspect is that the staff will get to choose their ensemble from a large array of options. They will be allowed to mix and match some looks to give their own unique style."

I feel like Disney maybe shouldn't have doubled down on the First Order stuff at the park.

I guess it's due to the First Order being more recent and being created after they acquired the franchise but I get where you are coming from.

It's not as iconic as the stuff from 20 or 40 years ago, which would probably draw bigger crowds.  If they wanted to promote the current trilogy, perhaps they should have had the park be representative of all three trilogies.

If I could afford it, I’d go just for the experience. Being able to buy officially licensed tunics, robes and belts is cool; not sold on their lightsabers, tho...
