Disneyland’s Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge theme park to open May 31

Star Wars Galaxy's Edge is coming soon to Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resort

The news was revealed in a Disney earnings call by company CEO Bob Iger, but a commercial offering fresh glimpses of the heavily-themed areas was released, confirming the opening dates. Walt Disney World announced that Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will open in Orlando on August 29. The park at Disneyland will now open on May 31, and the park at Disney World will open on August 29.

Guests at Galaxy's Edge will be able to use the Play Disney Parks app to interact with elements inside the experience including droids, ships, media screens, door panels and antenna arrays. Plus, reservations are required to visit the park in Anaheim between May 31st and June 23rd. Guests begin their adventure on the interactive ride Millennium Falcon: Smuggler's Run. That's a few months earlier than the initial opening plan, which slated the Disneyland and Disney World openings for summer and fall of this year, respectively.

Also, to prevent anticipated overcrowding, Disney is requiring guests to make a reservation to visit the attraction at Disneyland from opening day until June 23. They say details on getting these reservations will come at a later date.

"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.

Star Wars fans itching to get a taste of new Disney theme parks inspired by the iconic film franchise have some exceptionally good news to revel in on Thursday.

"For your vacation planning purposes, please be aware that Disney FASTPASS service, including access via Disney MaxPass, (at Disneyland park) and Disney FastPass+ service (at Disney's Hollywood Studios) will not initially be offered at Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run". It will be available during Extra Magic Hours at Disney's Hollywood Studios. But the company warned that it expects demand to be high and that Hollywood Studios will stop admitting visitors any time it reaches capacity.

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

The lands will also feature a fully immersive Star Wars-themed hotel that is "seamlessly connected" to the area.
