Know Before You Go To Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

Capacity for Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and its experiences is limited. Access to the park, land and experiences may be restricted or unavailable depending on guest demand and other factors.

Disney has made it very clear that Park tickets, Annual Passes, vacation packages, and Walt Disney World Resort Hotel stays do not guarantee access to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. This leads many to believe that 300+ minute queues for access to Galaxy’s Edge will be discourage, if not outright forbidden.
