Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – One Last ‘Know Before You Go’ Review

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge - One Last Know Before You Go The DIS Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

With the opening Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland Park mere hours away, it’s time to review those all-important Know Before You Go tips that the Disney Parks Blog has been sharing over the last few weeks.

  • Between May 31st and June 23rd, reservations are required to enter Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Guests visiting during this period will need a reservation and valid theme park admission. These reservations are no longer available.
  • Guests CAN still get a reservation, however, by staying at one on of the hotels of the Disneyland Resort between May 31st and June 23. Stay at one of the three Disneyland Resort hotels and registered guests will receive one reservation during their stay. Valid theme park admission is required. Guests will be notified of their reservation time with their confirmation. If a hotel booking is canceled, the Galaxy’s Edge reservation is also canceled.
  • There will NOT be a standby line! Again, only guests with reservations will be able to enter the new land between May 31st and June 23rd.
  • Reservations will not be required after June 23rd. While reservations won’t be needed beginning June 24th, Disneyland Park may use a virtual queueing system to manage demand to Galaxy’s Edge. Guests will be able to request to join a boarding group via a special module in the Disneyland App once they’ve entered the park. Guests will be notified when it’s their turn to enter the land via the app. Having an assigned boarding group, however, does not guarantee access.
  • The Disneyland Resort costume policy is still in effect in Batuu! Guests ages 14 and older may not wear costumes anywhere in the Disneyland Resort. Dressing in clothing “inspired by favorite characters” (Disney bounding), however, is allowed.
  • Download the Disneyland App to access even more information while in Galaxy’s Edge. Via the Disneyland App, guests can check wait times, locate characters, and use Mobile Order at select locations.

  • Enhance your experience with the Play Disney Parks App. Through the Play Disney Parks App, guests can interact with droids, translate Aurebesh, scan cargo crates to collect virtual items, and much more.
  • Disneyland wants to provide a great guest experience. Guests in the queue for Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, for example, will be able to buy snacks, take restroom breaks, interact with cast, and play a special in-queue game on the Play Disney Parks App.
