Starwars fans are will be over the moon to hear that Disney officials have announced that the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is opening ahead of schedule on May 31 at Disneyland Resort in California and August 29 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida.
Guests arriving for the opening of Phase 1 of the theme lands will be able to live their own Star Wars story through an immersive set of attractions, including the Millenium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run ride, galactic food and beverages, a collection of merchant shops and many more.
When Phase 2 of the launch opens later this year at both Disney parks, visitors will be able to enjoy Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. The attraction will put guests right smack in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance, blurring the lines between fantasy and reality.
The decision to open the themed land in phases comes after the tremendous demand from fans clamouring to witness and enjoy the one-of-a-kind experiences that make Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge so spectacular.
To enjoy the Star Wars festivities at Disneyland, travelers will need a valid theme park admission and a no-cost reservation, but do note that it will be subject to availability. Visitors staying at one of the three Disneyland Resort hotels between May 31 and June 23 will receive a designated reservation to access Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge during their stay.
For those of you visiting Disney World, a valid theme park admission to Disney’s Hollywood Studios is required to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge after its opening on August 29. The themed land will also be open during Extra Magic Hours.
