New Disney Star Wars Theme Park Lands Set Opening Dates

Share

- Disney has announced the opening date for the highly anticipated "Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge" land at Hollywood Studios.

Disney has today revealed the new theme parks will open ahead of schedule in the U.S. at Disneyland Park in California on 31st May and at Disney's Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida on 29th August. The opening comes ahead of schedule - Disney had initially said it would be in late fall in Orlando. Rise of the Resistance, said to be the most technologically advanced theme park ride in Disney history (which may make it the most technologically advanced theme park ride ever built) will open "later this year".

Guests who want to visit the California park between May 31 and June 23 will have to make a reservation, though.

The new land, which is replacing the permanently closed Big Thunder Ranch, was originally slated for a summer opening, most likely June. Iger says this interactive experience will "blur the lines for our guests between fantasy and reality and put them right in the middle of the Rebellion".

Not including the current season, James has scored an average of 2,069 points per season over the first 15 years of his career. The overall color scheme appeared very similar to the highly-coveted "Kobe Bryant" Air Jordan 3 PE .

Williams has had a long battle with vertigo, and some of UNC's players have seen this exact scary scenario play out before. I feel like we've been getting better for a long time, it shows up now with more (wins) and that's great, we want those.

Characters of Star Wars take part in an event held for the release of the film "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" in Disneyland Paris in Marne-la-Vallee, France, December 17, 2015. The information on how the reservation can be made will be available closer to the launch of the land. Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will open at Disneyland in Anaheim, California on May 31, 2019. During Extra Magic Hours guests staying at select Walt Disney World Resort hotels can spend extra time at Disney's Hollywood Studios enjoying select attractions.

However, the Walt Disney World version won't require or offer reservations. Just past year, Disney guests had to wait hours before entering the brand-new Toy Story Land, and we do not expect Galaxy's Edge to be any different. Fingers crossed that a few familiar faces will be on hand on the opening day of Galaxy's Edge as well.
