Bright Suns! Today, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge officially opened for Disneyland park guests! This historic opening is the largest and most technologically advanced single-themed land expansion ever in a Disney park.

Guests become part of the Star Wars story as they visit a galaxy far, far away. Taste delectable food and beverage creations, encounter aliens, droids and other inhabitants, discover an intriguing collection of merchant shops and take the controls of the most famous ship in the galaxy aboard Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run.

We were on the remote planet of Batuu this morning to catch the excitement as the first guests explored Black Spire Outpost!

Experience the epic Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge for yourself, now open at Disneyland park in California and opening Aug. 29 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida.

  • I was lucky enough to get a May 31st 8am-noon reservation, and I am super impressed with how well Disney handled the entire process. Opening the park at 6am. Leading everyone with well placed signage, to Tomorrowland, for wristbands. This was quick and painless. Then walking everyone over to the GE entrance before 8am. None of your reservation time was ever lost on all of this. Bravo Disney.
    The landscape is spectacular. Hopefully they can shoe-horn in another cantina, on the resistance side. Over there, seems empty, and could use one to balance it out.

    Even with the demand, it was overall spectacular. 4 hours was great, but cant wait for the next trip.

  • I was fortunate enough to be able to visit on May 31 and I really enjoyed it. I can’t wait to go back.

    Please keep us updated on when Rise of the Resistance opens! 🙂

  • I cannot wait for Star Wars galaxies edge August 29 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida it’s going to be a final version!!
