Update! Reservations are gone, but there are still some spots open if you stay at a Disneyland Resort Hotel.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will open on May 31 at Disneyland Park in California. From that date until June 23, guests who want to visit the new land will need a free reservation, in addition to their theme park ticket. Reservations are on a first come, first served basis, and they are for a four hour time slot. Guests staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel will automatically be assigned a time. It’s a free-for-all for everyone else.
If you would like to try for a reservation, the reservation page can be found here. You must have a My Disney Experience Account in order to obtain a reservation. You can reserve spots for up to six people per time frame, and you must have their names. Everyone in your party who is over 18 will need a photo ID in order to get into Galaxy’s Edge.
After June 24, there will be no more reservations. Remember that Galaxy’s Edge will not immediately have FastPass+, and it will not be included in Extra Magic Hours or Magic Morning. The same will be true of the Florida version of Galaxy’s Edge; no FastPass+ and no Extra Magic Hours.
There has been a lot of speculation on whether or not reservations will be required when Galaxy’s Edge opens at Walt Disney World on August 29. Disney has said that there will not be reservations in Florida. Of course that could change, but for now don’t expect a similar system.
Please, if you’re not planning a trip to Disneyland, don’t try to get a reservation that you are not going to use. Not only will that be a waste of your time (I’m sure the virtual queue is quite long), but it’s just cruel. Let the people who are planning to go get the reservations. Also, don’t think that you can make a Disneyland Resort Hotel reservation and then cancel it to get a slot for Galaxy’s Edge. If you cancel a hotel reservation, your Galaxy’s Edge reservation will automatically cancel as well.
