What to Expect at Disney’s – Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and how to get a FREE day at Disneyland

Maybe youve heard of a new little Disneyland experience opening this month…?
Okay, so its actually a huge 14 acre expansion called Star Wars: Galaxys Edge and theres more than just a little bit of excitement in the air.

Star Wars: Galaxys Edge

Galaxys Edge is the biggest, single-themed expansion in Disneyland history. To help you visualize 14 acres, thats about the size of Disneylands Critter Country, New Orleans Square and Adventureland combined. Since Galaxys Edge is situated on the planet Batuu, it makes sense that its such a large area for Disneyland guests to explore. This new land opens May 31, 2019 in Disneyland, and we have all the details from our friends at Get Away Today to help you make the most of your visit.

Star Wars: Galaxys Edge – Reservations

For anyone visiting Star Wars: Galaxys Edge May 31 – June 23, 2019, no-cost reservations are required in addition to valid theme park admission. General reservations sold out within two hours on May 2, but there is one other way to procure one! If you book a Disneyland Resort Hotel stay May 31 – June 23, 2019, each registered guest will be issued a four-hour reservation to visit Galaxys Edge. So you not only get to experience the magic of the intricately themed Disneyland Resort Hotels, but you get a Star Wars reservation as well. Get Away Today still has availability for Disneys Paradise Pier, Disneyland Hotel and Disneys Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, so you can book a room at one of the Resort hotels to see Galaxys Edge between its opening and June 23, 2019.

Star Wars: Galaxys Edge – Visiting After June 24, 2019

If you plan to wait and visit Star Wars: Galaxys Edge on or after June 24, 2019, you will only need valid theme park admission to do so. However, Disney will still be regulating the number of guests in the land during peak times. Instead of making a reservation, guests will need to use the Disneyland app to request a no-cost boarding pass to access Galaxys Edge. This will be in an effort to give everyone the best experience possible.

Requesting the boarding pass puts the guest in a virtual queue, allowing them to still enjoy other parts of Disneyland while awaiting their designated entry time for Galaxys Edge. In order to request a boarding pass via the Disneyland app, guests will need to physically be in the Resort.

Guests who have smartphones will receive a notification via the Disneyland app regarding their Galaxys Edge entry time so they wont miss out. After that notification is issued, guests will have two hours to respond and show up at Galaxys Edge. But, once guests enter Galaxys Edge, they will not have a time limit for their visit. If you dont have a smartphone, you can request a boarding pass from a physical kiosk and receive a paper boarding pass with an entry time.

A good tip to keep in mind is that early-morning entry to Star Wars: Galaxys Edge may not be regulated. This means that you can check the Disneyland app and see what the crowd situation is like. If crowds are small enough, no boarding pass will be required to get into Galaxys Edge. The same may be applicable in the evenings; so be sure to check the Disneyland app to know whether or not youll need a boarding pass at the time you want to visit Galaxys Edge. If you leave the land at any time, you will have to request another boarding pass to reenter, so plan accordingly.

Star Wars: Galaxys Edge – Attractions

Now that you know how to get into Galaxys Edge, we should probably let you know whats in it! Since its set on the new planet of Batuu, there will be a lot of foreign experiences, from apparel to souvenirs and food.

Star Wars: Galaxys Edge – Rides

For its initial opening this month, one of two rides will be up and running in Star Wars: Galaxys Edge. Millennium Falcon – Smugglers Run will take up to six guests on the ride of their lives. With six different roles to play on the galaxys fastest ship, you and five friends will have the option of experiencing the ride from various points of view. Ride Millennium Falcon as a gunner, a pilot or an engineer and help on a high-stakes smuggling mission.

Disney has teased that later in 2019 a second Galaxys Edge ride will be open, showcasing never-before-seen technology and thrills in Disneyland. Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will be an immersive experience that is rumored to be like four rides in one. When we have more info from our travel partners well be sure to update you!

Star Wars: Galaxys Edge – Merchandise

Savis Workshop – In this outpost youll be able to make your own lightsaber to take home. It will have authentic elements such as kyber crystals. This is a great way to not only purchase a souvenir, but to have a hands-on experience as well.

First Order Cargo & Resistance Supply – Show your support for either the First Order or The Resistance by purchasing apparel, supplies and more at one of these two outposts.

Star Wars: Galaxys Edge – Dining

Remember, Galaxys Edge is on a different planet than the rest of Disneyland, so you can expect the food to be out-of-this world and authentic to the Star Wars franchise. That doesnt mean it wont be delicious, though! Youll find family-friendly dining, quick-service vendors and even Coke products in Galaxys Edge.

Ogas Cantina – A favorite spot for locals and visitors alike, Ogas Cantina offers a family-friendly dining atmosphere and a DJ.
