You already own one of the most interactive parts of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge — your phone! Using the Play Disney Parks app, your phone will transform into a Datapad that can be used to hack into droids, scan cargo, translate galactic symbols, and tune into secret admissions!
We shared a bunch of details about using your data pad recently, but now we have screenshots of scanning a cargo crate in action!
You’ll know if a crate is scannable if you see this symbol on it. It’s rectangular and looks somewhat like a QR code (wink), but with a Star-Wars twist.
You’ll use the Scanning feature on your Datapad, which you’ll align with the symbol on the crate to initiate the scan.
Once your scan is complete, you’ll see this screen letting you know it was successful (or if you need to retry).And now it’s time to analyze — but we don’t want to spoil that for you! You’ll have to scan a few things for yourself.
As you can see, you can earn titles as you progress through various tasks. You will even get a military ranking!
So far, the Datapad is a super fun way to interact with the land around you, and keep you entertained during the queues. We can’t wait to keep exploring with it!
What do you think of the Datapad — are you excited to use it in Galaxy’s Edge? Let us know in the comments!
