For the last 2 years fans have been drooling over news and images from the Star Wars theme parks set to open at Disneyland and Disney World. Just moments ago, we got the official announcement on when those parks will be opening. Disneyland’s Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge will open to fans on May 31st of this year, while Disney World’s version of the attraction will open later this summer at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on August 29th. That means, if you get in line for either of the two big, e-ticket attractions right now, you should be able to ride them by Halloween or Christmas, respectively.
If you are one of the brave thousands that are interested in being there when the park opens, Disney has this advice for you:
Guests planning to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland park in California between May 31 and June 23, 2019 will need valid theme park admission and will be required to make a no-cost reservation, subject to availability, to access the land. Information on how to make a reservation will be available at a later date on Disneyland.com and the Disney Parks Blog. Guests 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); valid theme park admission is required.
A reservation will not be offered or required to experience Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at the Walt Disney World Resort at this time. And you should know that valid theme park admission to Disney’s Hollywood Studios is required to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge after its opening on August 29, 2019. Capacity is limited. Additionally, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will be available during Extra Magic Hours. During Extra Magic Hours guests staying at select Walt Disney World Resort hotels can spend extra time at Disney’s Hollywood Studios enjoying select attractions. Details will also be available at a later date on Disneyworld.com and the Disney Parks Blog.
