News from Amy at Pure Magic Vacations for May 28, 2019!
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.
This morning, Disney shared the opening dates for Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge during its Annual Shareholders meeting.
Without further delay:
Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will open at Disneyland Resort in California on May 31, 2019
Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will open at Walt Disney World in Florida on August 29, 2019
This is the "phase one" opening of this new experience, and you'll be able to live your own Star Wars story and take control of the most famous ship in the galaxy on Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, sample galactic food and beverages and explore Star Wars themed shopping!
Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance attraction will be opening during phase two.
More information for you to know:
If you're planning to visit Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Disneyland between May 31 and June 23, 2019, you'll need valid theme park admission and you'll be required to make a no-cost reservation (more details to come). If you've already got a reservation for accommodations at a Disneyland Resort hotel during these dates, you'll automatically receive this reservation for access.
Reservations won't be required for Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Walt Disney World, but valid theme park admission to Disney's Hollywood Studios will be required to visit. Capacity will be limited, and Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will be open during Extra Magic Hours. More to come!
Disney FASTPASS service, including access via Disney MaxPass, (at Disneyland Park) and Disney FastPass+service (at Disney’s Hollywood Studios) will not initially be offered at Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. Disney will continually evaluate operations and services in order to help provide you with the best experience!
Vacation packages, park tickets and Disney Resort hotel stays do not guarantee access to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. The land —including participation in its experiences—will be subject to capacity restraints and other restrictions.
Capacity for Disney's Hollywood Studios, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge and its experiences is limited. Access to the park, land and experiences may be restricted or unavailable depending on guest demand and other factors.
