This week, we shared several great Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge stories, including updates on our innovative food and beverage offerings, details on Savi’s Workshop as well as important arrival and parking information if you’re planning to visit during the first few weeks of the land’s opening at the Disneyland Resort. Check out our series updates:

And if you missed our latest video, catch up with Disney Ambassador Justin Rapp in this week’s episode of “Know Before You Go!”

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is opening on May 31 at Disneyland Resort in Southern California and August 29 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida.

At Disneyland Resort, you can still get a guaranteed Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge reservation by staying at a Disneyland Resort hotel between May 31 and June 23, 2019. After June 23, reservations are no longer required to enter Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, and the Disneyland Resort will utilize a virtual queuing system, as needed, to continue to provide a great guest experience, so guests will be free to enjoy the rest of the resort while waiting to get called back to enter the land. Visit Michael’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge story for details.  

*Access to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge experiences is subject to capacity. After June 23, 2019, when reservations will no longer be required, access to Disneyland park, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and experiences is subject to capacity

Disney themed gondolas, Walt Disney World Resort

Disney Parks Blog readers were also among the first to see our stunning Disney themed gondolas unwrapped and making test runs during an exciting step forward for our Disney Skyliner system that’ll transport guests at Walt Disney World Resort later this fall.

When fall arrives, guests of Disney Skyliner Resorts – Disney’s Riviera Resort, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, Disney’s Pop Century Resort and Disney’s Art of Animation Resort – will be able to enjoy the benefit of being whisked between Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Check out our original Disney Skyliner Gondolas story for more images and details.
