Tips to ‘Know Before You Go’ to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland Resort

Disney Travel News

By: Disney Destinations
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, new lands now open in   Disneyland  Resort in California and   Walt Disney World  Resort in Florida, which will invite you to step into the   Star Wars  universe for the very first time and live your own   Star Wars  adventures.

To help you plan ahead and prepare for your visits to   Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge here are some tips to “know before you go” to this epic, new land:

1. Reservations will no longer be required to visit   Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge after June 23.  As needed, to manage demand, Disneyland Resort will implement a virtual queueing system to visit the new land so guests can enjoy the rest of the resort while waiting to visit Batuu. The Disneyland app will have a dedicated module called   Star Wars:  Galaxy’s Edge – Status and Access available from the main page, on which guests can request to join a boarding group to visit the land, once they have entered the park. Boarding groups will be sent a push notification when it is their turn to enter the land and they can monitor status of boarding groups from the app. There will also be the ability to join a boarding group from select locations inside Disneyland Park, if a guest is not using the app. The boarding group is tied to admission media that will be scanned upon entry into the land. Signage throughout the park will also display boarding group status. Admission into   Star Wars:  Galaxy’s Edge will be subject to capacity, and having an assigned boarding group will not guarantee entrance to the land.

2. The current   Disneyland  Resort costume policy will be in effect in   Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.  Costumes may not be worn by guests 14 years of age or older. Appropriate Disney bounding – dressing in outfits inspired by favorite characters – is permitted. 

3. Guests should download the official   Disneyland  mobile app to plan ahead and make the most of their visit to   Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.  The   Disneyland  app** allows guests to check the attraction wait time, locate character encounters and even utilize the mobile ordering feature at select dining locations when they are in the new land.

4.  Prepare for your visit to   Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge by downloading the Play Disney Parks mobile app in advance of your arrival.  The Play Disney Parks app** allows you to deepen your engagement with the land and interact with the world around you on the planet Batuu. Guests who choose to engage through the app will be able to interact with droids, translate Aurebesh, scan cargo crates and other containers to collect virtual items, and more.

5. Inside   Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Disney’s goal is to provide a great guest experience.  For example, guests who are in the queue at Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run will have the ability to purchase snacks, utilize a continued process to visit the restroom, enjoy cast interactions, and also engage with an in-queue game while using the Play Disney Parks mobile app to make wait times fun, interactive and enjoyable.

6. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge isn’t the only thing that’s new at   Disneyland  Resort!  There’s never been a better time for you to check out exciting experiences throughout the   Disneyland  Resort, including:

  • Take a ride on the Jessie’s Critter Carousel  at   Disney California Adventure
  • Delight in a freshly reimagined   Sleeping Beauty Castle  at   Disneyland
  • Savor the breathtaking  World of Color, which recently made its stunning return to   Disney California Adventure
