We've known for a year now that Disney's new Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge lands would be opening in 2019 at the Disneyland and Walt Disney World resorts. Today, Disney narrowed the opening windows for the two lands, announcing which seasons in which Star Wars would open on each coast.
Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will open in Summer 2019 at the Disneyland Resort in California and then in late Fall 2019 in Disney's Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World.
The two 14-acre lands will each include two rides — one where you pilot the Millennium Falcon and one depicting a battle between the Resistance and the First Order — a cantina-style restaurant, shops, and character encounters. Disney's patent applications suggest that the land might include some sort of lightsaber feature, and Disney's Imagineers have said that they are creating an interactive experience for the land that will evolve based upon your actions on the rides and with characters.
The action takes place on the planet Batuu, which Disney introduced to visitors on Star Tours: The Adventures Continue during the release of The Last Jedi. At Disneyland, Galaxy's Edge is going in north of the Rivers of America, between Critter Country and Fantasyland. The land is going in on the site of the old Streets of America at Disney's Hollywood Studios.Tweet
