Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is upon us. It is just about to open in Disneyland at the end of May, and the Disney World opening is right behind it in August. So what’s all this Summer and Fall stuff we kept hearing about? Now, it has suddenly become real, and you need to know how to plan your trip to be prepared for what’s ahead. Here is some quick info to help you plan for Star Wars Land admission.
Star Wars Land Admission Strategy & General Overview for Disneyland & Disney World
Rise of the Resistance
First off, Rise of the Resistance will not be open. That means there will be only one ride in operation for the foreseeable future in Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge. That does not mean there will be a shortage of things to do there. The new land will be a bustling market place full of interactive possibilities and lots of food.
Lay of the Land
The Major attraction that is opening with Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. This interactive space flight simulator puts you and five other guests behind the controls of the millennium falcon, and once you take flight, anything goes. Pass or fail, riding this will gain you a reputation in this corner of the galaxy.
The shopping opportunities in the Black Spire Outpost will include stores where you can build your lightsabers and droids, and you can even adopt a creature to take home with you. Dining will consist of Oga’s Cantina and several counter service offerings including Ronto Roasters and a Milk Stand serving blue and green milkshakes.
Disneyland is opening Galaxy’s Edge First, and due to the limited capacity of the new land, it is available by reservation only. These reservations are at no additional charge, but without reserving your place, you will not be able to get in to experience it. Guests at the Disney hotels will automatically get reservations to Galaxy’s Edge.
Walt Disney World
As of yet, Disney World has not announced any such reservation system to get into their new Hollywood Studios expansion land. However, This Galaxy’s Edge is the same as the one at Disneyland and therefore has the same limitations for attendance. Guests will be admitted into the new land accordingly. This method of opening a new area is very different from what we have experienced even with the most recent openings with Toy Story Land and Pandora over in the Animal Kingdom. This first-come-first-served system means you will almost certainly have to be at the Hollywood Studios gate hours before opening to secure your spot.

We love Star Wars. Bev probably more than me but still, I do like it. Probably not enough to goto L.S. for Disneyland, but we do like it. 🙂
Have a great Thursday, Janine! The sun is shining and life is good.
Bill, so dod Kevin and I. We are seriously so excited for this opening. Maybe you and Bev could try Disneyland at some point. Seriously it is going to be epic! Happy Thursday to you, too and yes the sun is also shining here with temps almost 60 today. So can’t complain 🙂
I didn’t know about the reservation system! We are hoping to go to Disney this fall. Thanks for the heads up!
Aw, you are so welcome and so excited for your fall visit now!! 🙂
OMG.. I wish we’d gain admittance because of Cassidy working for George Lucas! We’re hooked up, yo!
You know this is a dream of ours.. and we’ll get there one day.
If you get there, take me with you!! ?

Fantastic scoop! And I just forwarded to my husband–the new Star Wars land is the main reason we are planning a trip to Disney next year! Thanks, Janine 🙂
Aw, thanks Meredith and so happy to help both you and your husband on the Star Wars scoop here 🙂

So, as you know, we just got back from Disneyland on Monday night, and there are three Star Wars attractions already open and they were amazing. I can’t wait for the other ones, your photos look amazing. I think we might wait for the crowds to die down because the Star Wars people are REALLY REALLY into it, and we already heard a lot of talk about the upcoming Disneyland ones from locals and tourists alike. It’s going to be epic though, and I cant wait to read about your adventures
I am so glad you enjoyed Disneyland and what is already there so far for Star Wars. That said, I hear you about waiting until the crowds die down. Judging from Pandora and Toy Story Land when they opened, Star Wars will definitely be crowded, but even more so if that is possible as Star Wars fans are just a very large and massive group. Hoping maybe to get a sneak peek this fall, fingers crossed. But will keep updated here if and when 🙂

This all sounds SO EXCITING, Janine! Thanks for including all the important information we’ll need to know about the coming Star Wars attractions. SO fun!
Aw, totally my pleasure and here is to a fantastic Star Wars Land opening when it does happen now for all 🙂
Love this!!! I’m definitely a Star Wars fan. I hope you had a great weekend and here’s to fun sci-fi stuff! Hehe.
Aw, thanks and love that you are also a Star Wars fan. Wishing you a wonderful week now!! 🙂
