Disney’s $1 Billion Star Wars Land Is Open For Business

Disney’s Star Wars Land: Galaxy’s Edge has officially opened at 6 A.M. on May 31st at Disneyland in Anaheim, California. The Star Wars Land reportedly cost Disney $1 billion dollars to make and is one of the largest expansions in Disney history.

The park is built over 14 acres of land and features two rides (though only one is currently up and running) and has more than a dozen shops and restaurants. According to Disney parks chairman Bob Chapek “It’s the most immersive land we’ve ever built,” and hopefully it’ll live up to the hype.

It was publicly known that if you didn’t have a reservation for Galaxy’s Edge, there was no point in showing up on Friday as you would have no chance of getting in. Reservations are required to enter the park between May 31st and June 23, 2019, but starting June 24 it will be open to the public.

Guests who reserve their spots are assigned four-hour windows during which they can explore the attraction. Guests are given wristbands that indicate what times they’re allowed in the park and will be escorted out by employees dressed as Imperial stormtroopers once their allotted time is over.
