Know Before You Go: Planning a Visit to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland Resort

Disney Travel News

By: Disney Destinations

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge has been sharing the unique sights, sounds, smells and tastes of Batuu with off-worlders with reservations since May 31. As this epic new land opened in June,  there is so much to see and do including strolling the Black Spire Outpost Marketplace, tasting blue or green milk and taking the controls of the   Millennium Falcon. Here are some great tips to help you plan your visit to the far-flung destination of Batuu!

Boarding Groups

For guests wishing to live out   Star Wars adventures and access   Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge,   Disneyland Resort may utilize a virtual queuing system, as needed, to help everyone have a great experience. Be sure you download the   Disneyland  app before arriving and check the app or signage the day of their visit to find out if you will need to be part of a boarding group to visit   Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge that day. The boarding group will save you a virtual spot in line so you can enjoy other experiences while you wait to be notified of a time to enter.*

You may use the   Disneyland  app to request to be part of a boarding group after entering   Disneyland  park, if implemented that day. Simply link the theme park tickets of everyone in the party together on the app to request the same boarding group for the entire party. To see which boarding group is currently being admitted to the land, look on the app or digital signage in the park. 

If you enable push notifications on their mobile device, you will be notified when it is time to enter the land. If not, you can continue to check the   Disneyland  app or digital signage in the park, and enjoy other experiences, while awaiting your boarding group. You'll have up to two hours to enter the land after your boarding group is called for admission, so there is no rush!

For guests not using the   Disneyland  app, a boarding group may be obtained with a park admission ticket at some   Disney FASTPASS  Service locations, such as Haunted Mansion, Indiana Jones Adventure, Space Mountain, Splash Mountain or near the Matterhorn Bobsleds.

Reservations for Savi’s Workshop and Oga’s Cantina

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will no longer require a reservation to access the land, although reservations will be required for Savi’s Workshop and Oga’s Cantina, which have very limited capacities. Guests wishing to book a reservation for these experiences may do so on the same day of their visit, beginning at 7 a.m., with a valid credit card. Reservations for both experiences will allow access into   Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at the time of the reservation, so it will not be necessary to join a boarding group, if applicable, to enter the land to participate in a reserved experience. Please visit and for important details.
