FAQ: When Does Star Wars Land Open?

It had been widely speculated for some time that Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge (Star Wars Land) at Disney World’s Disney’s Hollywood Studios would open in 2019. This was confirmed at the D23 fan expo in July when Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Rob Chapek announced that Galaxy’s Edge at both Disneyland and Disney World would open before the next D23. D23 is a bi-annual event with the next one scheduled for Summer 2019, so one can presume that Star Wars Land will open at both parks in the first half of 2019.

Much more info about Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge can be found here.

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us and DisneyEverything.com My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments:1) The birth of my son (who is now 6 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?)I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.
