The opening month of Galaxy’s Edge in Anaheim is going to be one of the busiest and most action-packed few weeks in the history of the franchise as thousands flock to the west coast to check out this unique and impressive addition to the Star Wars story. Slashfilm have taken a look at this, along with the news that visitors during those first few weeks will have a four hour time limit to enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of Batuu and the Black Spire Outpost.
Thousands of lucky people will be visiting Disneyland in order to explore Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge in the first month of operation later this month and through most of June. However, it sounds like the early birds will be at somewhat of a disadvantage when it comes to the amount of time they’re able to spend on Batuu, because a colored wristband will help dictate when you’ll be asked to leave the Star Wars theme park expansion.
The first month of Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge will be more of a soft opening period for the theme park expansion. In order to make sure as many people can enjoy the experience as possible during this window that lasts through June 23, guests will be given colored wristbands that will give you four hours to spend in the land.
And speaking to Inside the Magic, Disney VP Kris Theiler elaborated on this.
“At a certain point, if we have to, then we’ll start to ask them to leave the land. Four hours is a long time in the land…Most guests are going to find that they’re ready to roll after four hours.”
An understandably sensible statement to make at this point of time, but we’re confident people are going to want a lot more time to absorb, experience and most importantly, spend money in Galaxy’s Edge. June 24th appears to be the cut-off date for that 4 hour time limit, so start planning your trips.
