What You Need to Know Before You Visit Disneyland’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

by May 30, 2019

When Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens at the Disneyland® Resort tomorrow, Guests will be invited to live their own Star Wars adventures in a land that has to be seen to be believed. Disney Imagineers have outdone themselves with the themeing and experiences they have created, and long-time and new fans of the franchise will really feel like they have stepped into a galaxy far, far away! To help you plan ahead and prepare for your visit, here are some things you will need to know before you go:



1. Reservations are required to enter Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge between May 31 and June 23. If you are visiting during this time, valid theme park admission and a reservation are needed to enter the new land at Disneyland Park. If you already have a reservation, you may check in at Star Wars Launch Bay in Tomorrowland up to 2 hours prior to your reservation start time, and go to the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge entrance as directed when your reservation begins. When you check in, you will need to bring your reservation confirmation (including QR code), government-issued ID and all members of their party listed on the reservation. Please note, at this time, general reservations are no longer available on Disneyland.com. For opening day, there is no need to arrive early, the same two-hour process will be in place. However, you may begin parking at select theme park parking lots at midnight.

2. If you don’t already have a reservation, you can still get a reservation to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge by staying at a Disneyland Resort hotel between May 31 and June 23*. Guests staying at one of the three Disneyland Resort hotels between May 31 and June 23 will receive a designated reservation to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge during their stay (one reservation per registered Guest; valid theme park admission required). Hotel Guests will be notified of their reservation date and time with their registration confirmation. Contact your Key to the World Travel® advisor today to make your reservation. If the hotel reservation is cancelled, the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge reservation will be cancelled.



3. No standby line will be available to enter Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge between May 31 and June 23. Only Guests with reservations will be able to access the land during this time.

4. After June 23, reservations will no longer be required to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. As needed, to manage demand, Disneyland® Resort will implement a virtual queueing system to visit the new land so you can enjoy the rest of the park while waiting to visit Batuu. The Disneyland app will have a dedicated module, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – Status and Access, which will be available from the main page. Here you can request to join a boarding group to visit the land, but you can only do this once you have entered the park. Boarding groups will be notified when it is their turn to enter the land. You will also be able to watch the status of boarding groups from the app. If you are not using the app, you will be able to join a boarding group from select locations inside Disneyland® park. These boarding groups are tied to an admission pass that will be scanned upon entry into the land. Look for signs throughout the park that will be displaying boarding group status. Please Note: Admission into Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will be subject to capacity, and having an assigned boarding group will not guarantee entrance to the land. 



5. From May 31 to June 23, 2019, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will not be part of VIP tours. Beginning June 24, 2019, VIP tours will include a visit to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. To book a VIP tour, please contact your Key to the World Travel® advisor.

6. The current Disneyland Resort costume policy will be in effect in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Costumes may not be worn by guests 14 years of age or older. Appropriate Disney bounding – dressing in outfits inspired by favorite characters – is permitted.



7. Be sure to download both the official Disneyland mobile app and Play Disney Parks mobile app before you arrive. The Disneyland app allows you to check the attraction wait time, locate character encounters and utilize the mobile ordering feature at select dining locations when you are in the new land. The Play Disney Parks app is how you will be able to interact with droids, translate Aurebesh, scan cargo crates and other containers to collect virtual items, and more.
