Disneyland California – Phase 1 opening on May 31, 2019
Disney’s Hollywood Studios – Phase 1 opening on August 29, 2019
Hey, Star Wars Fans -
Today Disney announced opening dates for the first phase of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at both Disneyland in California and Disney’s Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. In this first phase, the shops, restaurants, and the new Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run attraction will be open. For an extra cost, you can create your own lightsaber or purchase your own droid modeled on R2-D2 or BB-8. Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will not open until later this year (dates not yet announced). This is going to be an amazing, immersive Star Wars experience!
Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run will put you in the seat of the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon as either a pilon, engineer, or gunner where you will blast off, jump into hyperspace and face danger at every turn. This thrill ride features small drops, darkness and loud noises so guests must be at least 38-inches (97cm) to ride. Guests age 7 years or younger must be accompanied by a person age 14 years or older and it comes with all the usual warnings that riders should be in good health without high blood pressure, heart troubles, back or neck problems or other conditions that could be problematic. Expectant mothers should not ride.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is the first land designed to interact with the Play Disney parks app. Click here to learn more.
