Star Wars Galaxy's Edge at Disneyland
Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is the highly-anticipated new “land” coming to Disneyland Resort in Southern California. This new themed area of the park will invite guests to step into the Star Wars universe and live their own Star Wars adventures and will probably blow our collective minds. I'm a big Star Wars nerd and I'm super pumped.
First thing to know: Reservations are required to enter Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge between May 31 and June 23. Reservations to Galaxy's Edge are ONLY available with reservations through a stay at Disneyland Resort hotel.
If you want to play at the Star Wars land and do not have a reservation, you'll need to wait until after June 23. I'm certain there will be special queuing and rules in place for the foreseeable future. Stand by for an update when we know more.
I will be visiting the new land at the end of May to give all the tips and sneak previews I can share.
Other amazing Star Wars experiences at Disneyland
Beyond the new dedicated themed “land” there are other special Star Wars experiences to enjoy. Here are a few that my kids and I love:
Star Wars Launch Bay, located in Tomorrowland, the Launch Bay includes props from the movies, games, a visit to the cantina in Mos Eisley, and lots of meet-and-greets with characters. I have enjoyed awkward meetings with Darth Vader, Chewbacca, and Boba Fett.
The already-awesome Star Tours ride is frequently updated to include a new scenes based on the latest movies. I have been on this ride a LOT and recently whooped and hollered at the latest iterations.
Young Jedis will love Trials of Temple, a live show which will train them in the ways of The Force with new characters, including a new bad guy. Boo, hisss.
Whitney went to Disneyland with her family during the week of Thanksgiving to check it all out. She sent me these next three photos from the park:
