Disney Announces Opening Dates for “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge”

Guests will be able to explore Black Spire Outpost when venturing into Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge in 2019

Disney CEO Bob Iger announced at a shareholders meeting on Thursday that the long-anticipated “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” will open at the Disneyland Resort on May 31st, 2019 and at the Walt Disney World Resort on August 29, 2019.

Iger did add the detail that the land will not be fully open at Disneyland on May 31st. The “Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run” attraction will open on this date, but “Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance” will open later in the year on an undisclosed date.

Opening dates for both coasts are earlier than expected, by both fans and Disney themselves. Iger mentioned that the lands are ready to go much sooner than expected. For more information on “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge”, check out recent articles and podcast episodes here on the ThrillGeek site.
