Disney Announces STAR WARS: GALAXY'S EDGE Opening Dates and You'll Need Reservations
Disney has made the big announcement that Star Wars fans have been waiting for! Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is set to open ahead of schedule at the Disneyland Resort in California on May 31st, and at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida on August 29th!
There is one thing that you’ve got to know before you try and get in, though. If you plan on going to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland park between May 31 and June 23, 2019 along with your valid theme park admission, you “will be required to make a no-cost reservation, subject to availability, to access the land.” But, if you plan on going to experience Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at the Walt Disney World Resort, a reservation will not be offered or required.
Check out the announcement video below:
Information on how to make a reservation will be available at a later date on Disneyland.com. Guests who are staying at one of the three Disneyland Resort hotels during these dates “will receive a designated reservation to access Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge during their stay (one reservation per registered guest).”
On opening day for phase one, you’ll be able to live your own Star Wars story and take the controls of the most famous ship in the galaxy aboard Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, sample amazing galactic food and beverages, explore an intriguing collection of merchant shops and more.
And for phase two, opening later this year, will be Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, the most ambitious, immersive and advanced attraction ever imagined that will put guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance and will blur the lines between fantasy and reality. In light of tremendous demand, Disney made the decision to open the land in phases to allow guests to sooner enjoy the one-of-a-kind experiences that make Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge so spectacular.
While I’m pumped up about Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, I probably won’t even attempt to try and go until a year or two after it opens. I just don’t want to fight the insane crowds that will be flooding the place.
Will you be attempting to go when it first opens?
