Star Wars: Galaxy Edge Reservations Are Gone, But There’s Still One Way to Get In

Planning on zooming your X-wing for Anaheim after the new "Star Wars" land debuts? Here's what you need to know.


What to Know

  • Reservation info will be posted on May 2 at 8 a.m.
  • Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opens May 31; reservations will be required May 31-June 23 (plus park entry)
  • A Disneyland Resort hotel stay, during that period, will also have reservation opportunities

While C-3PO is the kind of droid who frankly wants every plan to be well considered and thoroughly detailed in advance, let's be real: Sometimes Rebels need to run on the fly, especially if a TIE fighter swoops in or an Imperial Cruiser cruises into view.

But, here's part two of our "let's be real" request: Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, the new so-so-so-anticipated land set to debut at Disneyland Park on May 31, 2019, is going to require a hefty amount of foreplanning, at least during its first few weeks.

C-3PO, as always, has the right instincts here: Plan ahead of time if you want to go right after this buzzed-about land opens.

Rebels across Southern California have surely heard that reservations would be required at Galaxy's Edge during the land's first month, in addition to admission to The Batuu-iest Place on Earth, er, Happiest, we mean.

So how to get one?

Information on how to make a reservation at the newest addition to Disneyland was made available May 2 at 8 a.m. Anaheim time.

By 12:45 p.m. in the afternoon, however, Disneyland announced that reservations were all booked. 

Which means, yes, it's best to take your Tauntaun out for its morning walk at another time.

But -- and it's an important but -- you can still score a reservation with a Disneyland Resort hotel stay.


Keep in mind that a Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge reservation will be required for entry between May 31 and June 23, 2019. 

But starting June 24, no reservation is neede at all! 

If you've made a reservation, you'll know that having a ticket or pass to enter Disneyland is a must.

Has C-3PO ever been wrong? He fusses and worries, but his love of order and direction-following is as correct as a Death Star is huge.  

Don't forget about Disney Parks' new rules regarding stroller size and smoking. All you need to know about that is here.

Need to plan out what you're going to feast upon once you're actually inside Galaxy's edge? Check out all the interstellar drinks and eats (including alcoholic beverages for the first time in the park) here.

And if you aren't equipped with a lightsaber or robe, check out the merchandise you'll find in the park here.
