Your Star Wars Dream Comes Alive With Disneyland’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Park
A Star Wars themed section called ‘Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge’ is all set to open at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California on 31st May 2019. The first round of reservations for visits between May 31, 2019, and June 23, 2019, already took the internet by storm as all the tickets were sold out in just two hours. Disneyland is sure to give visitors all sorts of Star Wars adventures on its highly regarded new theme park. Another Star Wars themed area will open at Disney's Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida on August 29, 2019.
The new theme park is set on a planet named Battu, a place not shown in the movies. Parkgoers will be able to experience two major attractions, Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance (opening later this year), a cinematic battle against the First Order. Also a host to attractions like Black Spire Outpost, the park promises thrilling adventures like no other. With shops and restaurants offering unique Star Wars themed merchandise and food that’s not seen anywhere else, ‘Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge’ is all set to woo Star Wars’ fans. Droids, alien species, and rogue traders on the planet will take these fans into a galaxy far, far away.
A preview event held earlier this year revealed that visitors will get to meet characters like Hondo Ohnaka from the movie as audio-animatronics figures while they tour through galaxy’s edge. The cast members of Disney shall be dressed as locals of the planet and will be either from the Resistance side or the First Order side. Additionally, the ‘Play Disney parks’ App will enable visitors to use their phones as an in-universe datapad that will help them unlock stories, translate alien codes and talk to the characters present. Food and beverages featured in Star Wars movies will also be made available here. All this and many more experiences await visitors at the Star Wars park.
Disneyland opened its time-slot based reservation, which was free of cost, and all slots went full within a time span of just 2 hours. However, if you still wish to be amongst the initial few guests at the park, you will need to book a hotel room at the Disneyland Resort. Guests will be allowed to visit the park after June 23 without a reservation and a virtual queuing system will be in place to book tickets for the same.
