Star Wars Galaxy's Edge Has Its Opening Dates, With Some Fine Print

By Germain Lussier on at

Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge will open May 31st at Disneyland in Anaheim, California and August 29th at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. But there is some fine print.

When Galaxy’s Edge opens at both at Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the second ride, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, will not be open. Plus, reservations are required to visit the park in Anaheim between May 31st and June 23rd. Here’s the video.

Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run will be open, as will the many, many other shops and oddities of the Black Spire Outpost on Batuu.

About those reservations, here’s what Disney said in a press release:

Guests planning to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland Park between May 31 and June 23, 2019, will need valid theme park admission and will be required to make a no-cost reservation, subject to availability, to access the land. Information on how to make a reservation will be available at a later date on and the Disney Parks Blog. Guests staying at one of the three Disneyland Resort hotels during these dates will receive a designated reservation to access Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge during their stay (one reservation per registered guest); valid theme park admission is required.

The release also calls these dates “Phase One” of the opening. Phase Two, which includes Rise of the Resistance, will be “later this year.”
