Disney's new Star Wars land will debut in Orlando on Aug. 29

Disney announces opening dates for Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge

Here's when Star Wars-themed lands at Disneyland, Disney World will open

The date for Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge's bow at a Walt Disneyland and Walt Disney World was moved up from its initial fall debut. Today, the official Disney Parks blog revealed the California-based attraction would open May 31 while the Florida-based one wouldn't open its proverbial doors until August 29.

Those guests looking to go to the California location between May 31 and June 23 will need to book advance reservations. Guests begin their adventure on the interactive ride Millennium Falcon: Smuggler's Run.

Disneyland and Walt Disney World are now developing Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, a massive, immersive experience that will transport guests to the galaxy far, far away. The latest service will be the first to offer fixed-price streaming of Disney's popular content such as "Frozen", "Remember Me" and "Han Solo: A Star Wars Story".

Some suggested the complaint could indicate hypocrisy from Democrats who have railed against "dark money" in politics . For that reason, they set up an LLC that served as the vehicle to pay staff and bill campaigns for services.

According to Disney, the opening day for phase one will include the Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run ride, where guests literally take control of the Millennium Falcon. No reservations are required to experience the theme park at the Walt Disney World Resort.

"And for phase two, opening later this year, will be Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, the most ambitious, immersive and advanced attraction ever imagined", Disney said in a release.

Disney's plans to launch a Star Wars-themed land have been in development for some time now. It will not be included in Extra Magic Hour or Magic Morning at Disneyland Park. 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. Guests staying at one of the resorts on property will have a designated reservation to access the land. And the company is expecting a massive turnout for the opening days of the experience. Yes, creating new Star Wars movies is all well and good, but when you're Disney and you've also got a theme park element to your business empire, you're obviously going to create some Star Wars stuff. The land -including participation in its experiences-will be subject to capacity restraints and other restrictions.
