We have been waiting for months to find out when we’d finally be able to go into Galaxy’s Edge. There have been rumors of a June opening in Disneyland and a December opening in Walt Disney World. Surprisingly, Disney seems to be ahead of schedule. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will open on May 31 in Disneyland and August 29 at Hollywood Studios.
Phase One and Two
Since the date was moved up, this new land will open in two phases. Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, the shops and the restaurants will be ready for on opening day for phase one. Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance seems to have run into a few hiccups, so it won’t be ready until phase two. We don’t have an official opening date other than the vague “later this year.” Both lands will have this two phase opening, so don’t expect Rise of the Resistance to open until late fall.
Star Wars fans have been anxiously awaiting the opening of Galaxy’s Edge and you can bet that there are thousands of people who will want to visit Batuu as soon as it opens. Thankfully, Disney has decided to create a reservation system for those wanting to visit Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland between May 31 and June 23, 2019. We don’t know how those reservations will work, but more information will be released as we get closer to May 31. We do know that if you stay at one of the Disneyland Resort hotels, you will be guaranteed a reservation. Make sure you book quickly because those rooms are sure to sell out fast!
