This land is NOT YET OPEN!
It is expected to open on May 31, 2019.

A Star Wars-themed land, named Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, is being constructed at Disneyland. The new area will open on May 31, 2019 although the Rise of the Resistance attraction will not open until a later date.

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will be the largest ever, single-themed land expansion at Walt Disney World. The land will have Guests transported to a never-before-seen planet that is going to be a remote trading port and one of the last stops before wild space.

Galaxy's Edge is also known as the Black Spire Outpost, a crossroads on the far-flung planet of Batuu. Not long ago, the First Order showed up searching for something, although what that something is remains unknown. Even more recently, the Resistance set up a camp in the wooded area of the Outpost and began, well... resisting.

The area has three main sections, the most southerly is where the Resistance is. The tree-lined area contains the entrance to the Rise of the Resistance attraction as well as a few well-known ships like a land speeder and an X-wing fighter. Next is the shopping and dining area where you find most of the inhabitants of the town. Lastly is the section controlled by the Red Fury, the 709th battalion of the First Order. There you will find a TIE Echelon fighter guarded by some aggressive stormtroopers.

The black spires themselves are long-petrified trees and structures have sprung up around and in them. One in particular is blacker than the rest but no one really knows why, but they do know it must mean something. When you are in Galaxy's Edge you are on the planet of Batuu, not on Earth. Do not expect the inhabitants to discuss Terran problems, but do expect them to talk at length about the goings on of the Black Spire Outpost.

Getting Reservations for Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge

For Disneyland Resort Hotel guests: Any guest staying at one of the 3 Disneyland Resort Hotels--The Disneyland Hotel, the Grand Californian, and Paradise Pier--with a reservation between May 31 and June 23 should have already received an email with their designated Galaxy's Edge reservation time. If you have not, or if the time needs to be changed, call Disney's specialized hotline at (888)854-3104. The Galaxy's Edge reservations are in 4-hour time blocks and Disney has indicated that guests will be expected to leave after their time is up.

For guests not staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel: Thursday, May 2 will be a big day for anyone not staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel. At 8:00 AM Pacific Time, Disney will release specifics about how to get a reservation for Galaxy's Edge. Then, at 10:00 AM Pacific Time on May 2, 2019, the Galaxy's Edge reservations will become available to all. Disney suggests that everyone wanting a reservation have a Disney account which leads us to believe that the reservations will be made online.

Getting into Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge after June 23: Beginning on June 24 reservations will no longer be needed, but it is still unclear how guests will get into the land. It is possible guests will be allowed to line up or there may be return times given upon entry to Disneyland.

We will continuously update this page as more details are revealed. May the Force be with us all.
