BREAKING: Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to Open May 31 at Disneyland Resort, August 29 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, New Concept-Arts Released!

It's official: Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will Open May 31 at Disneyland Resort, August 29 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios! Sounds great but there is a big "but" as at Disneyland the land will open in two phases and the highly awaited big E-Ticket ride "Rise of the Resistance" won't be open and you'll have to wait at least 2 or 3 months for its opening. ( read below ) What may sounds like a good idea to reduce the expected crowds at opening day might end by being an extremely bad idea as i bet you that it won't stop the fans to come right from the opening day. With Galaxy's Edge having only the Falcon ride and without the major ride it will create even longer lines/waiting time as only one ride will be operational. And it’s also extremely greedy as it will force people to come twice at Disneyland Galaxy’s Edge to ride the big E- ticket some months later …no comments. Below, the new commercial for Star Wars Galaxy's Edge announcing the opening on May 31 at Disneyland

Full article from the Disney Parks Blog: "Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is opening ahead of schedule on May 31 at Disneyland Resort in Southern California and August 29 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida.

That’s right – it’s debuting early because of high guest interest in experiencing this new, immersive land. On opening day for phase one, you’ll be able to live your own Star Wars story and take the controls of the most famous ship in the galaxy aboard Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, sample amazing galactic food and beverages, explore an intriguing collection of merchant shops and more.

And for phase two, opening later this year, will be Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, the most ambitious, immersive and advanced attraction ever imagined that will put guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance and will blur the lines between fantasy and reality. In light of tremendous demand, Disney made the decision to open the land in phases to allow guests to sooner enjoy the one-of-a-kind experiences that make Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge so spectacular.

Guests planning to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland park in California between May 31 and June 23, 2019 will need valid theme park admission and will be required to make a no-cost reservation, subject to availability, to access the land. Information on how to make a reservation will be available at a later date on and the Disney Parks Blog. Guests staying at one of the three Disneyland Resort hotels during these dates will receive a designated reservation to access Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge during their stay (one reservation per registered guest); valid theme park admission is required.

A reservation will not be offered or required to experience Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at the Walt Disney World Resort at this time. And you should know that valid theme park admission to Disney’s Hollywood Studios is required to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge after its opening on August 29, 2019. Capacity is limited. Additionally, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will be available during Extra Magic Hours. During Extra Magic Hours guests staying at select Walt Disney World Resort hotels can spend extra time at Disney’s Hollywood Studios enjoying select attractions. Details will also be available at a later date on and the Disney Parks Blog.

Capacity for the parks, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and its experiences is limited. Access to the park, land and experiences may be restricted or unavailable depending on guest demand and other factors."

Disney also released the new concept-arts below showing: Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo, a restaurant housed in a working hangar bay in the old marketplace where guests will choose from a variety of dishes prepared with ingredients from across the galaxy, prepared by Chef Strono “Cookie” Tuggs.

The Milk Stand where guests will be able to order and enjoy a cup of Batuu’s legendary frozen blue or green milk, like Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope or in Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi. Thirsty visitors will be able to try both these exotic galactic delicacies for themselves—as they live their own Star Wars adventures.

Creature Stall, an exotic shop where you’ll be free to explore as you peek into cages and crates filled with hard-to-find species from across the galaxy. Bina, the stall’s proprieter, scours star systems to keep this storefront stocked with unique companions for her customers. Marvel at a large collection of cackling Kowakian monkey-lizards, the rambunctious pets popular with shadowy underworld figures—including Hutts. Most of the creatures here are available for purchase—restrictions may apply to rathtars.
