Disney confirmed today the much-awaited news of the grand opening date for the upcoming STAR WARS: GALAXY’S EDGE expansion at both Disneyland Park in California and Disney’s Hollywood Studios Park in Florida and it brings with it some phased opening AND reservation requirements.
Phased Opening Dates
Nearly all of the land is expected to open in this phase except for the massive E-ticket attraction Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.

- Disney’s Hollywood Studios: August 29, 2019
The entire land expected to be completed with the opening of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.
- Dates have not yet been released but for both lands it seems we can expect “later this year.”
Accessing the Land
Each park will have slightly different access procedures for guests to enter Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. However, Disney FASTPASS service and Disney MaxPass will NOT be available for attractions in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in either destination. At least not at launch.

At Disney’s Hollywood Studios
- WHAT: Normal access into the land although capacity is limited.
