We broke the news earlier today that an opening date for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge has been released! This new interactive land will be opening in two phases. Phase 1 will allow guests to pilot the Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. Guests will be fully immersed with out of this galaxy food, drinks, and shops. Phase 1 opens at Disneyland Resort on May 31 and Walt Disney World Resort on August 29. The opening of Phase 2 will be announced at a later date. Phase 2 will see the opening of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.
Those planning their visit to a galaxy far, far away may be interested in the height requirements of the new attractions.
Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run: Guests must be at least 38 inches.
Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance: Guests must be at least 40 inches.
Want any young Padawans to be disappointed, we do not!
Also, important to note is that FASTPASS service will not initially be offered for Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. This includes access via Disney MaxPass (Disneyland Park) and Disney FastPass+ (Disney’s Hollywood Studios).
Those visiting the Disneyland Park location between May 31 and June 23, 2019, will need valid theme park admission. Disneyland Park guests will be required to make a no-cost reservation, subject to availability, to access the land. No such reservation system will be offered at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, however unlike its counterpart, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will be included in Extra Magic Hours.
