If you’ve gone to Disneyland in Anaheim, CA, any time in the past four years, you’ve no doubt seen a bit of construction just north of Big Thunder Mountain. It’s the massive build of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the interactive themed area set in a galaxy far, far away. We’re tantalizingly close to the May 31 opening, but if you want to try to go any time in its first month, you’ll need a reservation.

Beginning today, May 2, at 10:00 AM PT, you can make your reservations to visit Galaxy’s Edge. The reservations are only necessary if you plan to attend any time between May 31 and June 23. From June 24 onward, all you’ll need is a Disneyland ticket. Of course, it will still be subject to capacity, so be warned: it will likely be very busy for about the first hundred years.


So, to go to Galaxy’s Edge, you need to click here, which takes you to Disneyland’s reservation page. You’ll need to log into your Disney account, or create one if you don’t have one. Then you’re gonna do some waiting. Much like when you’re waiting for a hotel room at San Diego Comic-Con, there’s a virtual waiting area. Do not reload or click off the page, lest you lose your spot.

You can put up to six guests on a reservation, so be as heroic or as stingy as you want. Everyone will need valid photo IDs if they’re over 18 and the person who made the reservation will need a photo ID regardless.

We’re finally here! We can soon go see what all the hubbub is about. Galaxy’s Edge is going to be a fully immersive Star Wars experience with many rides and areas to make you feel like you’re in the story. Be sure to check out our full breakdowns of what to expect from the rides, animatronics, and and shops!
