Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Height Requirements and FastPass Details

Today Disney announced the exciting news that Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will be opening ahead of schedule at both Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will officially open on May 31 at Disneyland park in Southern California and on August 29 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida.

Disney also revealed the height requirements for the two attractions in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.

Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run will require guests to be
38″ or taller to ride. This attraction will take guests into the cockpit of “the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy.” They will take the controls of the Falcon in one of three unique and critical roles as the ship hurtles through space. Some will be pilots, some gunners and some flight engineers, creating multiple ways for guests to experience the attraction.

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance , which will open later this year, will require guests to be 40″ or taller. This attraction places guests right in the middle of the Rebellion and gives them an active role in the fight against the First Order, including a faceoff with Kylo Ren. Their journey takes them inside a full-size starship and aboard a nearby Star Destroyer.

Additionally, Disney FastPass service, including Disney MaxPass at Disneyland Park and Disney FastPass+ service at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will not initially be offered for Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run or Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Will Open in Two Phases

Today Disney made the exciting news that Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will be opening ahead of schedule at both Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will officially open on May 31 at Disneyland park in Southern California and on August 29 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida.

It was also announced that Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will open in two phases.

From Disney:

On opening day for phase one, you’ll be able to live your own Star Wars story and take the controls of the most famous ship in the galaxy aboard Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, sample amazing galactic food and beverages, explore an intriguing collection of merchant shops and more.

And for phase two, opening later this year, will be Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, the most ambitious, immersive and advanced attraction ever imagined that will put guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance and will blur the lines between fantasy and reality.  In light of tremendous demand, Disney made the decision to open the land in phases to allow guests to sooner enjoy the one-of-a-kind experiences that make Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge so spectacular.
