If you weren’t lucky enough to snag a reservation to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland Park from May 31st through June 23rd, you’ll probably want to know how to enter the land starting on June 24th. Brady MacDonald of the OC Register is sharing that information today:

Starting June 24, Disneyland visitors who want to explore the 14-acre Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will need to log into the Disneyland app to secure a “boarding pass” in a virtual queuing system designed to manage crowds in the new land at the Anaheim theme park.

No advanced reservations will be needed to enter Galaxy’s Edge beginning June 24, but visitors will need to secure a “boarding pass” to get into the new land.

Push notifications will be sent to Disneyland visitors when it’s time for their boarding group to enter Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Kiosks throughout the park will issue paper boarding passes to visitors not using the smartphone app.

The goal is to allow visitors to explore Disneyland attractions, restaurants and shops while waiting to experience Galaxy’s Edge without having to stand in long line to enter the new land. Visitors will have two hours to show up for their Galaxy’s Edge boarding pass entry after receiving their push notification. You must be inside the park to select a Galaxy’s Edge boarding group using the Disneyland app. There will be no time limit on how long visitors may spend in Galaxy’s Edge.

Early morning visitors will be able to head directly into the land without securing a boarding pass with the virtual queuing system. A status bar in the Disneyland app will notify visitors when Galaxy’s Edge is full and boarding passes are required. Late night visitors may also find that boarding passes are not required to enter the land.

Disneyland plans to stop using the virtual queuing system as soon as crowds dissipate.

What a total fiasco from the beginning. Good luck getting your 5 guests in! If you didn’t write in the names of the five guests your bringing in with you. They won’t be getting in. Sorry! This is what Disneyland is now saying. Star Wars land.

Does anyone know anything about this ?


“Disneyland plans to stop using the virtual queuing system as soon as crowds dissipate.” Or in other words, around 2025.
