Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

Welcome to the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Quick Start Guide! Here you will find a variety of information on this MASSIVE new expansion coming to both Disneyland and Walt Disney World, including attractions, food, merchandise and more! We will constantly be updating it as new information is released. So check back often! Enjoy!

Opening Day Details:

Disney will be opening Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in “phases,” with the first phase being the initial land and one attraction, Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. Rise of the Resistance will be opening later in the year at both parks.

FastPass+ will NOT be offered for both Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Rise of the Resistance at their respective openings.

Guests planning to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland park 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. Disney will make this information available on Disneyland.com at a later date.

Black Spire Outpost

Batuu is a far-flung destination along the galaxy’s Outer Rim, on the frontier of Wild Space – the uncharted region beyond all known star systems. Batuu is home to Black Spire Outpost, an infamous port for smugglers, traders and adventurers wishing to avoid any unnecessary … entanglements with the First Order. Along the way, guests may encounter some familiar faces, from Rey, Finn, and Poe to BB-8 and Chewie.

In their efforts to defeat the First Order, the Resistance has temporarily set up shop in an abandoned, ancient base encircled by forests, mountains, and rivers on the outskirts of Black Spire Outpost. Throughout the land in both parks, fans may see some familiar faces, including Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, BB-8, and Chewbacca—and even find themselves in a face-off with the First Order.


Attractions:
