Experiencing life as one of your favorite Star Wars characters won’t require fighting a Sith lord or hijacking a starspeeder — but you may want to clear your morning schedule next week.

On Thursday, May 2, hopeful young padawans can finally secure their visit to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the cinematic theme park land opening in California at Disneyland on May 31, 2019.

Guests hoping to visit Star Wars Land anytime between opening day and June 23 will need to secure a free reservation in advance. Details on how to nab a reservation will be released at 8 a.m. PT on May 2. Registration will open at 10 a.m. PT — and spots will likely go quickly.

How to Get a Star Wars Land Reservation

Wondering how to make sure you’re among the first to see the cantina and board the Millennium Falcon? Sign up for a Disney Account in advance — you’ll need it to make a free reservation — and be sure to be at your computer well before 10 a.m. on May 2. It is likely, too, that guests will need valid Disneyland tickets prior to obtaining a reservation, so having your dates and plans ready would be advantageous.

The one way to guarantee reservations without signing up is to book a room at one of Disneyland Resort hotels. Hotel guests with reservations at Disneyland Hotel, Disney’s Grand Californian Resort & Spa, or Disney’s Paradise Pier hotel between May 31 and June 23, 2019 will automatically receive one free reservation per guest. (Valid Disneyland admission is also required.)

These free Star Wars Land reservations, which allow access to the shops, droid factory, and famed cantina are expected to be in four-hour increments, with predetermined entrance and exit times. Theme park admission to Disneyland Park and a Galaxy’s Edge reservation will be required until June 23, 2019.

Beginning June 24, a new reservation system will go into effect. All reservations will continue to be free, but required.
