Last month it was announced by Disney Parks & Resorts that Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge would open during the summer of 2019 at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim and in the fall of 2019 at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando. Specific dates were not given and since then park goers have been trying to narrow down opening dates at both parks. While nothing is official, we have have been given a Disneyland Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opening clue earlier this month!
A few days ago we shared the news with you that changes are being made to the Disneyland Annual Passport program beginning in June of 2019. This new program has blockout dates by park. There are also additional blockouts for Deluxe and SoCal annual passholders for June 2019 at Disneyland park vs the dates and pattern listed for this month.
The idea is that Disneyland will issue blockouts for as many APs as possible when this new land opens in the hopes that the massive crowds that are to be expected will be slightly less. We are also seeing that, unlike this June, Deluxe Annual Passport holders have fewer blockout days in June of 2019 at Disney California Adventure park. Maybe to help even out the crowds at both parks?
So let’s take a closer look at these dates, shall we?!?
In June of 2018 So Cal Select Passholders are blocked out for the whole month of June with the exception of the 4th through the 7th. For this year Deluxe Passholders are blocked out every Saturday for the month of June (2nd, 9, 16th, 23rd, and 30th). For June of 2019 however, So Cal Select Passholders are blocked out for the entire month of June. Deluxe Passholders are blocked out every Friday, Saturday and Sunday (with the exception of the first Sunday of the month) as well as the whole week of the 24th – so basically from June 21-30 Deluxe Passholders are blocked out of Disneyland park.
Signature and Signature Plus Annual Passport holders see no change in blackout dates.
All of this could lead one to assume that during the month of June Disneyland wants to control visitors to the park for some reason. And the most likely reason is the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Now we’re not saying pack your bags for California just yet – but if you’re looking to narrow down months, this may give you a better idea.
