  • Disney's Star Wars Galaxy's Edge Theme Park Opening Dates Revealed

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will open May 31, 2019, at Disneyland Park in California, and August 29, 2019, at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Florida.

Galaxy's Edge opens in California on 31 May, while the Florida location will swing its gates wide on 29 August.

"It will be jaw-dropping, incredibly emotional to walk into the land for the first time", Carrie Beck, VP of animation and live-action series development at Lucasfilm, said in a Disney Parks video.

Phase one will introduce a ride, called Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. We finally have the opening dates for both lands! For now, visitors in Orlando will just need to have an admission ticket to Disney's Hollywood Studios for a chance to get into Galaxy's Edge there (reservations aren't yet available or required).

"For the past 35 years, one of my greatest pleasures has been to see Star Wars passed from one generation to the next", Lucas said in a statement, according to USA Today.

Muller angered by Germany dropping
Boateng, however, took a less confrontational tone when he posted on social media about being dropped by the national team. Even so, I would have liked a different farewell for us, of course. "Good luck to the team for the future!"

Also of note, at Disneyland, the Disney FASTPASS service, including access via Disney MaxPass, and at Walt Disney World, FastPass+ will not initially be offered at Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run.

To avoid the huge crowds and extremely long waits that visitors faced when Pandora: The World of Avatar opened at Disney's Animal Kingdom in 2017, Galaxy's Edge will open in two phases. Access to the park, land and experiences may be restricted or unavailable depending on guest demand and other factors.

The 14-acre land at Disney's Hollywood Studios is designed as a settlement on a remote planet named Batuu, with full-scale X-wing and A-wing starfighters parked among the bazaar stalls. Just a year ago, Disney guests had to wait hours before entering the brand-new Toy Story Land, and we do not expect Galaxy's Edge to be any different. And the company is expecting a massive turnout for the opening days of the experience.

It's looking like the force may be with all of you as soon as this spring.
