The Reservation System at Disneyland’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge has allowed guests to experience Batuu without monstrous crowds and the reviews have been out of the galaxy.

Disneyland’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opened on May 31 with a reservation system that allowed limited crowds in, who were staying at a Disneyland hotel or one of the lucky few who were able to snag a reservation who were not staying on property. Guests were allowed in, in four hour increments. This reservation system ends on June 24 and Disney fans are intrigued to see what changes are in store for the new land.

Disney will be implementing a virtual queue system beginning on June 24 for the land to help ensure guests have a magical experience in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. The virtual queue will be referred to as “Boarding Groups”. This system may not be implemented every day but to find out if it will be utilized on the day of your visit, download the Disneyland app prior to getting to the park and check the app status or signage around the park to find out if the boarding group system will be used that day.

How the boarding groups will work is that it will save you a virtual spot in line to enter into Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge so that you can enjoy the rest of Disneyland until your boarding group is called.

To use the feature, request to be in a boarding group AFTER entering Disneyland park and link the park tickets of everyone in your party together so that you can all request to be in the same boarding group. You can also view which boarding groups are currently being transported to the land through the app or on the digital signage located throughout the park.

Enabling the push notifications on your phone will allow you to be notified when it is time for your party to enter into Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Once your boarding group is called, don’t hope out of line for Haunted Mansion, you have two hours to enter the land.

If you don’t want to use the app, you can sign up for a boarding group at select Disney FASTPASS locations throughout the park.

Reservations will still be required to enter Savi’s Workshop and Oga’s Cantina due to the limited capacities and popularity of those two locations inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. If you would like to book a reservation for one of those two locations, you can do so on the day of your visit to Galaxy’s Edge starting at 7 am.

A valid credit card must be used to hold the reservation.

Each person in the party must be present upon check-in and admission to the cantina. At least one person in the party must be 14 years of age or older. Guests can check in 15 minutes prior to their scheduled reservation time with the Cast Member at the end of the queue at Oga’s Cantina. Checking in does not guarantee immediate admission. Parites will be admitted to the cantina when space that accommodates their party size becomes available. So, if there are smuggler’s camping out at the watering hole, be prepared to wait past your reservation time. Blame DJ Rex for dropping those sick beats.

Savi’s Workshop Information

Only 14 builders can build their lightsaber at a time so capacity is extremely limited. As mentioned above, reservations can only be made day of.

Guests must arrive at east 20 minutes prior to your reservation time and check-in location in front of Savi’s Workshop – Handbuilt Lightsabers.

At check in, be prepared to present your reservation confirmation email, photo ID and the credit card provided at the time of booking the reservation.

Late arrivals may not be accommodated and a $199.99 no-show fee per builder will be applied to the credit card on file if you fail to check in for your reservation. There are no cancellations for this reservation and no shows will be charged the full $199.99.
