Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opens at Disneyland on May 31, but don't bother planning to camp out the night before in order to get into the land. Only people with advance reservations will be allowed into Galaxy's Edge for its first three and a half weeks, from May 31 through June 23. Disney will not offer a stand-by queue, so if you don't get a reservation for a four-window to visit the land during that time, you are not getting in.
Disneyland announced earlier today that it will open reservations to the public via its website at 10am on May 2 and will post instructions on getting those reservations two hours earlier, at 8am Pacific time. But you don't have to take your chances with that.
You can get a guaranteed reservation time for Galaxy's Edge right now by booking at least one night at one of Disneyland's three on-site hotels during the "preview" period. Contrary to what you might have heard or read online, rooms remain available at all three of those hotels during the reservation-only period for Galaxy's Edge.
A Disneyland Resort representative confirmed to me this afternoon that rooms were available today at the following nightly rates for its three hotels:
No, these are not the cheapest rates that you can find at the Good Neighbor hotels around the resort. But you are getting the toughest tickets in town for your family with your night at one of these on-site hotels, which already offer a pretty sweet experience as it is. Reservations for Disneyland's on-site hotels are available by calling +1-714-520-5060. Disney's representatives can assist you in finding the most convenient date available for your stay... and trip to Galaxy Edge's home planet of Batuu. Rates and availability are subject to change, of course, as people jump on this way to get their Galaxy's Edge reservations.
Valid theme park admission will be required to visit Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, in addition to a reservation time. If you need help with that, we've always got help for you on our Disneyland tickets page, as well. And if you need help planning a trip to Southern California, we've got that for you, too.Tweet
