Is it assumed that WDW will also operate on a reservation only basis when it is open?

By: Claire Bilby, Senior Vice President, Sales, Services and Events, Disney Destinations
April 19, 2019

We know that you and your Clients are excited to learn more about how to reserve a spot to enter Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge when it opens at Disneyland Resort on May 31.

As a reminder, to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland Park between May 31 and June 23, Guests will need valid theme park admission and will be required to make a no-cost reservation, subject to availability, to access the land.

We wanted you to be among the first to know that information about how to make a reservation will be available soon. Please watch Disney Travel News closely, as it’s almost time to share timing and details on how this reservation process will work. I know you’ll want to provide these details to your Clients as soon as they’re available.

And, don’t forget, Guests staying at one of the three Disneyland Resort hotels during these dates will receive a designated reservation to access Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge during their stay (one reservation per registered guest). Valid theme park admission is required. Rooms are still available at the Disneyland Resort hotels during this timeframe, and booking a Disneyland room and ticket package for your Clients is still the best option for helping secure access to the new land during this time.

As always, thank you for partnering with us to bring the magic of Disney to your clients. Please stay tuned for all the exciting details!

Senior Vice President, Sales, Services & Events
Not like Disneyland but it is expected there will be some sort of virtual queue or way of limiting people into the land.

I appreciate the response. However criticism doesn't resonate with me without also offering up a worthwhile solution. A Star Wars Land was always going to be a zoo at opening. It is its destiny so to speak.

Not singling you out, I have been critical of all critics who don't explain how it could or should be done better.

Anyone can Monday morning quarterback.
If anything, this is one franchise that had the best chance of holding it own as a separate gate. Either here, Anaheim, or both. Maybe even partnering with Marvel (though obviously that’s more a west coast thing). IMHO.

If they were ever to do another domestic resort this is the franchise to base it on. They also have the option of expanding across World Drive as a separate ticketed boutique type park. I realize these scenarios are at least 10 years away if ever.

I think the "dedicated gate" ship has long sailed though. They've invested what, $1 billion between the two coasts to make Galaxy's Edge an add-on to existing parks? Aside from their respective expansion pads and the Star Wars resort the most we could expect would be a separate phase 2 similar to the WWoHP set up. And that'd be Orlando only, as I don't think they'd be able to find the space for that in Anaheim.

I believe nothing that site says.
I agree, but I wouldn't be surprised that this rumor is true.

I was listening to the GE coverage from Celebration and I thought it was interesting that I didn't hear anything about streetmosphere characters that were mentioned early on in the development.

Do you know (and can you say) if the TSR has been axed completely or is planned for a later "phase 2" for the land along with the roaming droids, etc.? In other words, has it been cut completely or just delayed?

Recognizing, of course, that even expected/planned things don't always happen.
They left the space... and it is so obviously missing. One would think it is at least still planned or they would reclaim the footprint. Right?

Well, they've clearly left the "option" open for the future. My question is more whether that mindset is "here's space we can use in the future for a table service restaurantif we ever decide to do it" versus "we are definitely still planning the TSR but it will be in the second wave of stuff with the roaming droids once crowds get better" or something like that.

Still think a sabaac parlor would be a good fit somewhere on Batuu:

Just a guess, but, I would think that it is wise for Disney to not have a TSR in the land until the initial human tsunami settles down a little. They don't need anything there that will hold up people from moving on and out right now. They can have sufficient areas to feed people outside of the land for now. Later, when it becomes more manageable they can then build it and it will be considered an additional "Attraction" in the land. In fact, they can be continuously building it after they open and no one will know until they are ready to make it public.

Wonder if they could do it legally.

Yea, they could call it the Han Solo card game parlor. :bored:
From the state statute definition:

GamblingPlaying or engaging in any card game or game of chance, at any place, by any device, for money or another thing of value.

Gambling is illegal in Florida outside a casino on a reservation.

Ever tried to play poker without money at stake? Without the thrill / fear of consequences the game is meaningless. Saba acc is designed to be the SW version of that. The appeal is the risk and reward.

I just don’t know how it would really work without stakes.

Actually I was refering to the fact that legally they don't have the right to use the name sabacc. That's why the sabacc game in the stores is called the Han Solo card game. Unless something has changed, I don't think they could use the name even if they did the game for fun.

What? I did not know that.
