  • I’m handicapped and have a special needs nephew, we love Star Wars. We hope to find out about the reservation system in order to be there when Galaxy’s Edge at Disney World opens. We already have DVC reservations.
    Standing in long lines is not an option for us. Will you have accommodations for those of us who are handicapped?

  • I really hope they let us know by email, would that 24 hour window.

  • Will the reservation system for Galaxy’s edge break here on this blog? PLEASE give us at least a 24 hour window to prepare for this!

  • Hopefully there’s a live stream for the event, it’d be amazing if they announce the opening date for Rise of the Resistance
