Disney's highly anticipated Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge lands will open on May 31 at Disneyland in Anaheim and August 29 at DisneyWorld in Florida. This is sooner than rumored, and Disney CEO Bob Iger says the timeline was accelerated “in light of the tremendous demand.” There will initially be a no-cost reservation system to keep crowds managable (thanks for the note, kerosene_pill).
The areas of the park will tie in with a promotional push around Star Wars Episode IX, including an interactive experience called “Rise of the Resistance."
Of the "Rise of the Resistance" experience, which will open later than the lands as a whole, Iger says “It will blur the lines for our guests between fantasy and reality and put them right in the middle of the Rebellion. No one has ever attempted anything of this magnitude."
