To help you plan ahead and prepare for your visit to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at the Disneyland® Resort, here are some tips for this epic, new land, opening May 31, 2019.

1. Reservations are required to enter Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge between May 31 and June 23.

Guests visiting during this time will need valid theme park admission and a reservation to enter the new land at Disneyland® Park. At this time, reservations for guests not staying at one of the three Disneyland® Resort hotels are no longer available.

2. Guests 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 visitStar Wars: Galaxy’s Edge during their stay (one reservation per registered guest; valid theme park admission required). Get Away Today will notify guests of their reservation date and time with their registration confirmation. If the hotel reservation is cancelled, the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge reservation will also be cancelled.

If you need to make any changes to your hotel reservation during this time, please call 855-GET-AWAY as soon as possible and an agent will assist you.

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. However, after June 23, reservations will no longer be required to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

4. Reservations will no longer be required to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge after June 23.

On June 24, 2019, the Disneyland® Resort will implement a virtual queueing system to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. This way, guests can enjoy the rest of the Resort while waiting to visit Batuu. The Disneyland® app will have a dedicated module called Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – Status and Access available from the main page, on which guests can request to join a boarding group to visit the land, once they have entered the park.

Boarding groups will be sent a push notification when it is their turn to enter the land and they can monitor the status of boarding groups from the app. Please note that guests will have two hours to show up for their boarding pass entry after receiving their push notification. If you do not have access to a smartphone or are not using the Disneyland® app, you will have the ability to join a boarding group from select kiosk locations inside Disneyland® Park.

The boarding group is tied to admission media that will be scanned upon entry into the land. Signage throughout the park will also display boarding group status. 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. 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.

6. Download the official Disneyland® mobile app to plan ahead and make the most of your visit to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

The Disneyland® app allows guests to check the attraction wait time, locate character encounters and even utilize the mobile ordering feature at select dining locations when they are in the new land.

7. Download the Play Disney Parks mobile app before your vacation to enhance your visit to Battu.

The Play Disney Parks app allows guests to deepen their engagement with the land and interact with the world around them on the planet Batuu. Guests who choose to engage through the app will be able to interact with droids, translate Aurebesh, scan cargo crates and other containers to collect virtual items, and more.

8. Inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Disney’s goal is to provide a great guest experience.

Whether you’re a padawan in training or a Jedi Master, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is going to be enjoyable for everyone. Because of this, Disney’s main goal is to provide a great experience for everyone who visits Battu. For example, guests who are in the queue at Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run will have the ability to purchase snacks, utilize a continued process to visit the restroom, enjoy cast interactions, and also engage with an in-queue game while using the Play Disney Parks mobile app to make wait times fun, interactive and enjoyable.

We can’t wait for you to experience an out of this world adventure at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge! If you have any additional questions or concerns regarding Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, please give our agents a call at 855-GET-AWAY and we’d be happy to assist you.
