New Disney Star Wars theme park lands set opening dates

Height Requirements for Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge Attractions

Chairman and CEO Bob Iger confirmed at the recent Annual Meeting of Shareholders that the Star Wars themed rides and shops have official opening dates.

Under construction for the last few years, Disney has been teasing Star Wars aficionados with glimpses of the new theme park lands coming to Disneyland in California and Walt Disney World in Florida.

Florida parkgoers will have to wait until August 29 to board the Millennium Falcon, where as Disneyland guests will be able to experience Galaxy's Edge beginning May 31.

Disney also said guests wanting to experience the new Star Wars land will need to make a "no-cost reservation" to access the land. Guests begin their adventure on the interactive ride Millennium Falcon: Smuggler's Run. Reservation information and availability will be announced later, but guests staying at one of the Disneyland hotels will be assigned a time, guaranteeing they'll be able to experience Galaxy's Edge during its first month. More details about reservations will be available on Disneyland.com and the Disney Parks Blog.

Disney's immersive Star Wars lands are opening ahead of schedule - but there's a catch.

The company is building a Tron-themed roller coaster in Orlando's Magic Kingdom and a new Marvel-themed land in California's Disneyland, among other new offerings.

Attractions: For your vacation planning purposes, please be aware that Disney FASTPASS service, including access via Disney MaxPass, (at Disneyland park) and Disney FastPass+ service (at Disney's Hollywood Studios) will not initially be offered at Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. Guests staying at one of the resorts on property will have a designated reservation to access the land. Hopefully, this will help you be one of the first to experience Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. Fingers crossed that a few familiar faces will be on hand on the opening day of Galaxy's Edge as well.

It's looking like the force may be with all of you as soon as this spring. Yes, creating new Star Wars movies is all well and good, but when you're Disney and you've also got a theme park element to your business empire, you're obviously going to create some Star Wars stuff.
