The countdown is on for Star Wars fans near and far, far away as Disneyland Resort confirms the opening season for the “largest single-themed land expansions ever”.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will open in Disneyland & California Adventure Park during the US summer 2019 (for the rest of the world, that’s sometime from late June).

Only around one year to go – Meesa Happy!


In true Disney style, the Star Wars land will be entirely “immersive”, giving visitors the sense of being in a remote galaxy where rebel fighters and Jedi leaders go head-to-head with the power-hungry Empire and its vicious Storm Troopers.

More specifically, Galaxy’s Edge will be made to resemble Batuu, and planet where smugglers and traders live. Guests will be able to join the Resistance on one side of the land and indulge their darker side on the other.


Characters such as Darth Vader, will make frequent appearances in the land along with themed merchandise and food.

Check out the video below for a sneak peek at the land.

Meanwhile, Travel Agents on planet Earth are invited to an evening of everything Disney at this year’s Disney Days Roadshow.
