It was announced several weeks ago that when Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge open next month at Disneyland Park, guests who want to visit this brand new land will need to register for special time slots to visit this popular new Disneyland destination. And though details were scarce at the time, with just over a month to go before this new land's grand opening, Disney has finally released some new information on how this reservation system will work. 

Reservations will allow guests entry for 4 hours only and will not allow for re-admittance

Beginning on opening day (May 31st) and lasting through June 23rd, guests at Disneyland who want to experience Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will need a reservation. There will be absolutely no exceptions to this rule, and no one will be admitted without a return time. Guests who do secure a reservation will also only have a 4-hour window in which experience everything they can inside Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, after which they will need to leave to make way for other guests. In addition, guests who leave this land during their allotted time will not be able to re-enter once they have left, no matter how much time is left for their original reservation. 

Though these rules seem a little harsh, Disney is trying to make room for as many guests as possible and keep things as fair as they can during the first weeks following the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.

Right now the best way to guarantee access to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is to be a guest at one of the Disneyland Resort's three official hotels. Each reservation at a hotel  grants one reserved space per stay for each hotel guest over the age of three. Of course, given the interest in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge (and the scarcity of Disneyland hotel rooms) guests may not have this option on their travel dates. Fortunately, there is another way to reserve a spot inside Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, but it will require a little planning...
