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.
