So, we all know that from May 31 through June 23, Guests wishing to visit Disneyland’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge must make a reservation, but what will happen when the reservations end and Guests can start pouring in on June 24? Well, according to the OC Register, Guests will need to then partake in a virtual queuing system, by procuring a free boarding pass.
According to Disneyland vice president, Kris Theiler, “It’s very, very important for us that our guests who are coming here don’t spend their time standing in line to get into the land.”
Early morning visitors will not have to have a boarding pass. Instead, they will be able to head directly into the land to experience the shopping, dining, and Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run attraction.
As the day progresses, Guests should check their Disneyland app and as the land fills, a status bar will be shown and will notify visitors when Galaxy’s Edge is full and boarding passes are required. Once you have your boarding pass, push notifications will be sent to visitors when it’s their time to enter the land. For those without smartphones, kiosks will be found throughout the park and they will issue paper boarding passes to visitors.
Once visitors are notified that via push notifications that their boarding pass time is available, they will have two hours to show up to enter the land.
Don’t think you can be at home and make your Galaxy’s Edge reservation and show up once your push notification comes across. You must be inside the park to select the option to make a Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge boarding pass.
The reasoning behind this boarding pass option is that it will then allow visitors to explore Disneyland’s other attractions, restaurants and shops while waiting to experience Galaxy’s Edge without having to stand in an extremely long line waiting to enter Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
Once the land opens on June 24 to all Guests, there will be no time limit on how long they may spend in Galaxy’s Edge.
Disneyland plans to stop using this virtual queuing system as soon as crowds for the land begin to die down.
