The newest addition to Disney Theme Parks, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, will open ahead of schedule on May 31 at Disneyland Resort in Southern California and August 29 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida because of “tremendous demand.”

Disney's largest single-themed land expansions ever will now open in two phases—phase one will give guests the chance to ride through the galaxy aboard Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, sample galactic food and beverages, and explore a collection of merchant shops. (Read more on what you'll find in Black Spire Outpost, a village on the remote planet of Batuu.)

Phase two, opening later this year, will be Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. The attraction ever imagined that will put guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance and will blur the lines between fantasy and reality.

Disney made the decision to open the land in phases to allow guests to sooner enjoy the one-of-a-kind experiences that make Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge so spectacular.

Guests planning to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland Park between May 31 and June 23, 2019 will need valid theme park admission and will be required to make a no-cost reservation, subject to availability, to access the land. Guests staying at one of the three Disneyland Resort hotels during these dates will receive a designated reservation to access Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge during their stay (one reservation per registered guest).

A reservation will not be offered or required to experience Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at the Walt Disney World Resort. Valid theme park admission to Disney’s Hollywood Studios is required to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge after its opening on August 29, 2019.

Additionally, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will be open during Extra Magic Hours. During Extra Magic Hours guests staying at select Walt Disney World Resort hotels can spend extra time at Disney’s Hollywood Studios enjoying select attractions.
