The official opening dates for Galaxy’s Edge have now been revealed!
At the Disney shareholders meeting on Thursday, Bob Iger shared that Galaxy’s Edge will open at Disneyland in California on May 31, while then opening at Disney World in Florida on August 29.
The opening is apparently earlier than originally expected due to the high interest in the park, though initially it seems there will be a ‘soft launch’ of the park. Guests can experience the Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run attraction immediately, but Rise of the Resistance will not be open until later in the year. Additionally, guests looking to visit between May 31 and June 23 will need to make a no-cost reservation at the park.
There was also a new trailer released for the park:
I can’t wait for this, and I can’t wait to visit! There’s been a lot of information about Galaxy’s Edge recently, and I’ve mainly been trying to keep up with the canon story behind it all. But it sounds like you will truly feel like you’re stepping into the Star Wars universe when you visit this park, and for that I absolutely cannot wait!
