Official Opening Dates For Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge Revealed

A short time ago Disney concluded their 2019 annual shareholders meeting and Bob Iger took to the stage to announce that Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge will be opening sooner than expected at both the Disneyland and Walt Disney World locations:

May 31 – Disneyland
August 29 – Walt Disney World

Earlier comments from Iger mentioned June as being the opening month for Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland with a late fall opening scheduled for the park in Walt Disney World.

Of interesting note is that Galaxy’s Edge will be rolled out (for lack of a better term) at Disneyland and Walt Disney World in two phases. Phase one will feature the opening of the Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run attraction at both park locations while Phase two (set for sometime later this year) will see the launch of the Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance ride. An official launch date for the Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance ride has not yet been announced.

Minutes ago, Disney Parks, Experiences and Products shared an exciting announcement many of you have been waiting to hear – Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is opening ahead of schedule on May 31 at Disneyland Resort in Southern California and August 29 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida.
