*Update: There are rumblings all around that Disney has asked for all travel based employees to be on high alert and ready for a big day tomorrow! It is speculated they will announce the opening dates of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge during the shareholders meeting tomorrow! We are also hearing that the opening date for the Walt Disney World based land could be moved up to an earlier date as well. This is apparently due to the construction progress of the land being way ahead of schedule!
We have just found an article Barron’s that was published online Friday, Jan. 4 that Disney CEO Bob Iger spoke of a June grand opening for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland. Iger was asked about efforts to grow attendance and increase capacity at Disney parks.
“When Star Wars opens in Anaheim in June and in Florida later in the year, that’s adding capacity,” Iger told Barron’s. “You’re adding 14 acres of land (each), more rides and more for people to do. It’s the biggest land we’ve ever built.”
Did Disney just drop a clue to the opening date of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland? We have been waiting patiently(well not really) for the new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to open at Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Searching for clues and reading everything we can find a hint to what the official opening date could be. While there is nothing official, Disney released a promo today that could possibly give us a clue!
On January 7th a special priced tickets will go on sale. The 3-day 1 park ticket is priced at $179.00, or if you prefer, the 3-day park hopper ticket for $234.00. The tickets may be used on consecutive days or on separate days. Tickets will expire May 23, 2019… Sooooo, does that mean they are trying to pack in as many people as they can right before the opening of the new edition to Disneyland?
We can only speculate at this time because no official word has been announced, but we are hoping we will know the opening dates so we can book those flights! If it isn’t opening the weekend of May 23rd, we think it has to be very soon after! What do you think? Stay tuned and check back for more details as we get them on the opening of Disneyland’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
