All 4 Disney Play Star Wars Pins on a table

Galaxy’s Edge Achievement Pins Now Available

Disney has taken the Disney Play App to a galaxy far, far away by allowing guests to earn digital achievements and datapad achievement pins for experiencing some attractions and shows in and around Galaxy’s Edge. There are currently three Star Wars datapad achievement pins in Galaxy’s Edge and one that can be earned on the Star Tours attraction. 

How Do I Use the Disney Play App?

These pins are a great way to remember your Galaxy’s Edge experience after you leave Batuu for your home planet. Galaxy’s Edge has its own special function inside the Disney Play app called the datapad. Guests can use the datapad to play games, answer trivia, spy for the Resistance or the First Order, and collect datapad achievement pins along with the digital versions. All you have to do is simply log in, opt into Bluetooth and Location Services, and ride or watch the attractions featuring these achievements.

Once the qualifying achievement has been earned and unlocked in the app, travelers just show the digital achievement screen to a cast member to purchase the pin at participating locations. The Play app is free to download in the Apple or Google Play App stores. The app also features games, trivia, and other interactive elements that families can enjoy while in line for various attractions or while exploring the land.

Do I Get the Achievement Right Away?

We have had mixed experiences with the Play app. Most of the time as soon as we get off an attraction the app notifies us we earned an achievement. Other times we didn’t receive the achievement until days later. Our suggestions for this issue are to try the following:

  • Closing the app and re-opening it
  • Turning off your phone and restarting it
  • Be patient and give the app time to recognize your achievement

If you are still having issues with earning the achievement the app allows you to give it to yourself by double-tapping on the achievement image.

Now with that out of the way here are all the pins you can earn.
