Many fans are counting down the dates until Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens at Disneyland at the end of May — and today those with confirmed Disneyland on-site hotel reservations have received their assigned time slots to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. For the first few weeks of operation, Disneyland visitors must have a (free) reservation to get into Galaxy’s Edge, in addition to regular park admission.

If you have a hotel reservation at the Disneyland Hotel, Grand Californian or Paradise Pier, scan your email for the subject line: “Get details about your STAR WARS: Galaxy’s Edge reservation.” There you should see an assigned four-hour block of time where you and the other registered guests in the room aged 3 and over can visit Galaxy’s Edge (little kids can come in with their party without a reservation).

When your time slot is over, the email says you will need to say adios to Star Wars Land. If you exit before your time is up, you cannot re-enter. Four hours feels a bit short given that you may spend a large chunk of that time just in line for the Smuggler’s Run attraction since there is no FastPass/MaxPass available (so perhaps explore first and then get in line for the ride). The terms are clear that you only get one assigned time to visit Galaxy’s Edge per hotel stay. However if you have a stay at another Disneyland hotel the next night, you likely received one slot per actual hotel reservation.

What’s especially interesting about these assigned Star Wars time slots is that some are for May 30 — which is a day before the land is said to officially open on May 31. It’s unclear if this is an (exciting) soft open or a tech glitch. Sadly, a tech glitch seems most likely as the hotel reservation date attached to the time slots on the email from Disney are also displaying as one day earlier than in reality. TPG has reached out to Disneyland for comment and they are working on that process.

Update: The dates initially sent out were incorrect by one day — those who received May 30 time slots have now been sent May 31 slots.

Specific details on how to make reservations for those without an on-site Disneyland hotel reservation will be available on the Disney Parks Blog and Disneyland.com on May 2 at 8 am. PT. You must have a Disney account to register for a reservation, so be sure to create one before registration opens at 10 am PT. If you don’t want to wait for that window, you can make an official Disneyland hotel reservation before that time to get a guaranteed time slot.
