It's almost time to visit Batuu. The Disneyland Resort will announce at 8am Pacific Time Thursday the details on how guests can get reservations to visit its Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge land when it opens to the public on May 31. (We have updated with those details, below.) Then, at 10am, the park will start taking reservations via Disneyland.com. (Second update: All times are now gone.)
Will The Force be with you? You can help your chances of being able to get in on the reservations right when they open if you create and log in to your required Disney.com account before 10am. And buying your Disneyland annual pass or theme park tickets in advance and associating them with your Disney account might help you make the jump to light speed, too.
All guests who visit Galaxy's Edge between May 31 and June 23 will need an advance reservation to get into the land. Disneyland will not maintain a standby queue to get into the new Star Wars land. Reservations are free but require valid park admission.
The land will open to all Disneyland guests on June 24, when advance reservations will no longer be required. However, Disneyland is planning to control access to Galaxy's Edge using a virtual queue from that date forward. Once inside the land, fans will wait in traditional queues for the Millennium
Force Falcon [LOL!]: Smugglers Run ride and Oga's Cantina bar. There will be no Fastpass system inside the land. However, Disney will make bathroom break passes available to those waiting in line.
(And in case you haven't heard already, the land's second ride — Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance — will not be open during this time and will debut sometime later this year.)
Now of course, even if you luck out and get a coveted May 31 slot, you won't be the very first Earthlings to get to visit the Galaxy's Edge planet of Batuu. That honor will go to Disneyland's own cast members, who will be getting cast previews of the land on May 20, 21, 22, 26, and 27. Then a media event will follow before the public opening on the 31st.
Once the reservations open, come on back here and let us know in the comments how you did — whether you got in or not, and if you did, when. Good luck!

Update: Here are the rules: You will need to be signed into your Disney account to make a reservation. And you also will need the names of everyone in your party, up to six people total. The guest who made the reservation and all others in the party over age 18 will need to bring government-issued photo IDs to get entrance to the land. If you try to sell or transfer a reservation, it's void. You also cannot change it once it has been made. Here is the link to the reservation page. May The Force be with you.
Update 2: All times were claimed by 11:45am.Tweet
