As of the writing of this blog post, there are just fifteen days until Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opens to guests at Disneyland Park in California. Wow! It has been such an adventure just following along with the planning and development of this new, 14-acre land at the Disney parks, and it's going to be even more exciting to watch it all unfold.
If you're planning to visit Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Disneyland Park within the first few weeks of its opening date, there are a few things that you need to know to make sure your visit goes as smoothly as possible. Yes, it's going to be busy--CRAZY BUSY--but if you're armed with the right information, this will help ensure you get to enjoy Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge to its fullest!
Here are a few important bits of information for you to understand prior to your visit.
Access to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge experiences is subject to capacity. After June 23, 2019, when reservations will no longer be required, access to Disneyland Park, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge and experiences is subject to capacity.
I am constantly amazed at the number of strollers that are present at Walt Disney World theme parks when we visit, and thank my lucky stars I have not been a guest requiring a stroller at Magic Kingdom. Don't get me wrong, many families absolutely require the use of a stroller to get those tired kiddos around the massive parks, especially when they're tired out and just need a snooze. A stroller is also handy for helping families carry all of the items necessary for young children to have a fun a successful visit.
However, in recent years there has been an influx of very large strollers and wagons, making it difficult for some guests to get around.
Starting on May 1, 2019, Disney is adjusting its guidelines on stroller sizes that will be permitted in the parks. As of this date, strollers must be no larger than 31" wide and 52" long. Many of the strollers on the market, including many double jogging strollers will still fit within these new size guidelines.
In addition, wagons are not permitted in the parks, and beginning May, stroller wagons will also no longer be permitted. (Confession: I had to Google "stroller wagon" to even figure out what these are...wow.)
Why is Disney putting this new policy in place?
The Disney theme parks are BUSY places, with thousands of people visiting daily. The new policy is designed to help guest flow and ease congestion, which is sure to be at all-time highs with the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge on the horizon.
