The expanded universe of Star Wars is coming much sooner than expected, as Walt Disney Parks and Resorts revealed that Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will be opening in May 2019 at the Disneyland Resort. The official opening date is slated for May 31st, along with an opening date of August 29th at the Walt Disney World Resort.
The new land will open in two phases, starting with Phase 1 that includes the grand opening of Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. Later this year, the land’s second attraction, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, will debut and bring the full force of Star Wars front and center.
For all guests planning their trips to visit the new land, please note that at Disneyland Park between May 31st and June 23rd, an additional no-cost reservation will be required along with valid theme park admission. The reservations will be subject to availability and are limited, so stay tuned. More information on how to obtain a reservation will be available in the near future according to Disney Parks and Resorts.
All hotel guests staying on property at the Disneyland Resort will also receive a designated reservation to access Galaxy’s Edge during their stay. Make sure to make reservations quickly, as each hotel is bound to book up fast.
