You’ll be able to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge a little earlier than expected as the themed land is scheduled to open at Disneyland on May 31, and at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Disney World on August 29! Due to high demand, the full rollout at both parks with happen in two phases, allowing guests the chance to enjoy more unique experiences sooner, with phase one allowing you to board the Millennium Falcon for the Smuggler’s Run attraction, as well as partake in galactic cuisine and beverages, explore merchant shops, and more.
Launching at some point later this year, phase two will include Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, the fully immersive experience that puts you right in the middle of an epic battle between the First Order and the Resistance.
Below you’ll find more detailed information from Disney Parks Blog:
