Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge set to open May 31 at Disneyland, August 29 at Hollywood Studios


Disney announced it will open its hotly anticipated Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland on May 31 and Hollywood Studios on Aug. 29.

For months, Disney’s been mum about the official opening dates for Star Wars Land — summer 2019 in Anaheim, followed by a virtually identical land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando in the fall. Earlier media reports suggested a June and October opening for Anaheim and Orlando, respectively.

Here are some things to know about Disney’s Star Wars Land.

Reserve a spot

Disneyland guests planning a visit between May 31 and June 23 will need “valid theme park admission and will be required to make a (free) reservation” via to access Star Wars Land: Anaheim. Disneyland Resort hotel guests will get a designated reservation to access Galaxy’s Edge during their stay, however, valid theme park admission is required for that.

New rides

The 14-acre sites, each costing about $1 billion, include new rides — Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance rides. Rise of the Resistance, however, will open later this year at both parks, according to a news release.

On the menu

Blue Milk or Bantha milk, made famous from “Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope,” has its place in Star Wars Land. Guests can also sip on Green Milk, which appeared in “Star Wars: Episode VII — The Last Jedi.”

Other specialty drinks include a Dagobah Slug Slinger and a T-16 Skyhopper, served at Oga’s Cantina. And yes, some of the beverages at the cantina will include alcohol, which will break a longstanding Disneyland tradition. (Sister park Disney California Adventure has long served liquor.)
