Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge To Open May 31 At Disneyland Resort, August 29 At Disney’s Hollywood Studios

 Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is opening ahead of schedule on May 31 at Disneyland Resort in Southern California and August 29 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida.

That’s right – it’s debuting early because of high guest interest in experiencing this new, immersive land.  On opening day for phase one, you’ll be able to live your own Star Wars story and take the controls of the most famous ship in the galaxy aboard Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, sample amazing galactic food and beverages, explore an intriguing collection of merchant shops and more.

And for phase two, opening later this year, will be Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, the most ambitious, immersive and advanced 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.  In light of tremendous demand, 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 in California 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. Information on how to make a reservation will be available at a later date on disneyland.com and the Disney Parks Blog. 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); valid theme park admission is required.

A reservation will not be offered or required to experience Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at the Walt Disney World Resort at this time.  And you should know that 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. Capacity is limited.  Additionally, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will be available 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.  Details will also be available at a later date on Disneyworld.com and the Disney Parks Blog.

John Williams Creating New Music, Attraction Names Revealed For Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

Bob Chapek, chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products, announced some major details about Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge today at D23’s Destination D: Celebrating Mickey Mouse at Walt Disney World Resort — including the news that John Williams, beloved Star Wars composer, is creating new and original Star Wars themes exclusively for the land. Star Wars wouldn’t be Star Wars without Williams’ incredible, sweeping scores; getting to hear new work from him at Galaxy’s Edge has us all the more excited.

You can listen to a preview of the music, recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios, in the video above, which also features footage of construction progress at Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

In addition, Chapek played two videos that revealed the names of the two major attractions that will be part of Galaxy’s Edge on opening day at Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

The first, named Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, puts guests behind the controls of the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy in one of three unique flight crew roles. We are ready to channel our inner Han, Lando, Chewie, and Rey!

The second attraction, which puts guests in the middle of an epic battle between the Resistance and the First Order, is called Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.

Along with the land’s dynamic elements and additional interactive integration with the Play Disney Parks app, these groundbreaking attractions at Galaxy’s Edge will invite guests to become galactic travelers and live their own Star Wars stories in a galaxy far, far away.

Indeed, there will be much to do at this exotic outpost, as detailed on the Disney Parks Blog. You can visit a street market in Black Spire Outpost, shop at food stalls where you can enjoy delicacies like blue milk, or visit the Cantina where you can see an old friend, Rex, as well as creatures and characters that are hallmarks of the Star Wars universe.

Also, Chapek shared new information about the currently in-development Star Wars-themed resort coming to Walt Disney World Resort. From the moment you board your launch pod, you’ll experience a fully-immersive, multi-day Star Wars adventure aboard a luxury starship complete with high-end dining, space-view cabins, and exciting action.

Galaxy’s Edge, the highly-anticipated Star Wars-themed land, opens at Disneyland Resort in summer 2019 and at Walt Disney World Resort in fall 2019.
