Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is one of the most anticipated projects coming in 2019 — that’s not a movie. Disney finally revealed the theme park’s opening dates.
If you loving going to Disney World and love Star Wars, Disney has something exciting planned for you this summer. The company has been teasing its upcoming Star Wars-themed park for some time, but now we actually know when Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will open.
Get your lightsabers out because it’s earlier than expected.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will open May 31 at Disneyland in Anaheim, CA., and August 29 in Disney World in Orlando, Fla., the company announced at the annual shareholders meeting, according to Disney Parks blog.
While the park will be opening earlier than anticipated, it won’t be 100 percent ready. Just one of the two main rides will be operating, according to the report. Falcon: Smuggler’s Run will be good to go, but the anticipated Star Wars: Rise of Resistance will not be operational yet.
While the ride is expected later this year, I wonder if there are spoilers for Episode IX that Disney is trying avoid — or, if indeed, the ride just isn’t ready yet.
And there’s another little caveat. Due to the overwhelming demand for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, guests will have to make a no-cost reservation for access at Disneyland. You can’t buy your Disney park ticket that day and expect to be transported to Batuu.
That’s not the case currently at Disney World, but that is subject to change.
This gives you enough time to prepare for your Star Wars adventure.
