NYC offers just the perfect backdrop for BIG and BOLD announcements, perfect location for the announcement Disney Marketing Team made about New Attractions At Disney Parks.
New Attractions At Disney Parks
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to Open May 31 at Disneyland Resort, August 29 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
On opening day for phase one, you’ll be able to live your own Star Wars story and take the controls of the most famous ship in the galaxy aboard Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, sample amazing galactic food and beverages, explore an intriguing collection of merchant shops and more.
And for phase two, opening later this year, will be Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, the most ambitious, immersive and advanced attraction ever imagined that will put guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance and will blur the lines between fantasy and reality.
In light of tremendous demand, Disney made the decision to open the land in phases to allow guests to sooner enjoy the one-of-a-kind experiences that make Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge so spectacular.
Guests planning to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland park in California between May 31 and June 23, 2019 will need valid theme park admission and will be required to make a no-cost reservation, subject to availability, to access the land.
Information on how to make a reservation will be available at a later date on Disneyland.com .
You can watch the teaser video and be excited as I am:
Guests staying at one of the three Disneyland Resort hotels during these dates will receive a designated reservation to access Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge during their stay (one reservation per registered guest); valid theme park admission is required. Isn’t that amazing???
A reservation will not be offered or required to experience Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at the Walt Disney World Resort at this time.
You should know that valid theme park admission to Disney’s Hollywood Studios is required to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge after its opening on August 29, 2019. Capacity is limited.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will be available during Extra Magic Hours. During Extra Magic Hours guests staying at select Walt Disney World Resort hotels can spend extra time at Disney’s Hollywood Studios enjoying select attractions.
Details will also be available at a later date on Disneyworld.com and the Disney Parks Blog.
I’ve added this shot from the event to my vision board, crossing fingers, hair, toes, my whole body that I will be able to get there soon to check it all out!
I even got my lightsaber training ready, because I know the force is with me!
You already know I’m a HUGE Star Wars Fan, so I totally surrendered to the magic that this brand new attraction will bring to the Disney Parks!

We also heard about the exciting Disney themed gondolas unwrapped and making test runs during an exciting step forward for the Disney Skyliner system that’ll transport guests at Walt Disney World Resort later this fall.
