The day has finally come! Beginning today, you no longer need reservations to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. It’s like opening day all over again! However, one does not simply enter the Black Spire Outpost. Disney has implemented a “Virtual Queue.” A system that holds your place in line to get into the new land while you enjoy the rest of Disneyland.
And while reservations are no longer needed for the new land, they are still required for Oga’s Cantina and Savi’s Workshop.
Also don’t forget about the Disney Play app which will give you even more experiences in Batuu.
Here are some tips on how this all works via a Disneyland Press Release:
- For guests who wish to live out Star Wars adventures and access Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge beginning June 24, Disneyland Resort may utilize a virtual queuing system, as needed, to help provide smooth access to the land. Guests are encouraged to download the Disneyland app before arriving and to check the app, or signage in the park the day of their visit, to find out if they need to be part of a boarding group to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge that day. The boarding group will save a virtual spot in line and allow guests to enjoy other experiences as they wait to be notified of a time to enter.**
- Guests may use the Disneyland app to request to be part of a boarding group after entering Disneyland Park, if boarding groups are implemented that day. The app will allow guests to link the theme park tickets of everyone in their party together to request the same boarding group for the entire party.
- Guests will be advised which boarding group is currently being admitted to the land on the app and also on digital signage in the park. Guests may also enable push notifications on their mobile devices to get a notification of when it’s time to enter the land.
- Guests may continue to enjoy shows, attractions and other experiences while watching for their boarding group, and they will not need to rush to get to the land. They have up to two hours to enter the land after their boarding group is called for admission.
- For guests not using the Disneyland app, a boarding group may be obtained with a park admission ticket at select Disney FastPass service locations such as Haunted Mansion, Indiana Jones Adventure, Space Mountain, Splash Mountain and near the Matterhorn Bobsleds.
- For a step-by-step guide on how to request a boarding group on the Disneyland app, guests may view a video on the Disney Parks YouTube channel. Information will also be available at Disneyland.com.
Reservations for Savi’s Workshop and Oga’s Cantina
- Beginning June 24, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will no longer require a reservation to access the land. Reservations will be required for Savi’s Workshop and Oga’s Cantina, which have very limited capacities. Guests wishing to book a reservation for these experiences may do so on the same day of their visit, beginning at 7 a.m., with a valid credit card. Reservations for both experiences will allow access into Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at the time of the reservation, so it will not be necessary to join a boarding group, if applicable, to enter the land to participate in a reserved experience. Additional important details are available at Disneyland.com/SavisWorkshop and Disneyland.com/Cantina.
Play Disney Parks Mobile App
- Guests are encouraged to download the Play Disney Parks mobile app in advance of their visit to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. The Play Disney Parks app*** allows guests to deepen their engagement with the land and interact with the world around them on the planet Batuu. Guests who choose to engage through the app will be able to interact with droids, translate Aurebesh, scan cargo crates and other containers to collect virtual items, and more. Additionally, guests who are in the queue at Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run may engage with the in-queue game while using the app to help make wait time fun, interactive and enjoyable.
