Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is finally opening at Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida on August 29, and as of right now, you can get reservations to visit the attractions on the land. The Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California opened in May and guests no longer need a reservation to see the Star Wars-themed land, but you'll still need to reserve your spot in Disney's virtual line via the Disneyland app.

Although you won't need a reservation to enter Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, you'll still need to reserve a spot to get into Oga's Cantina and Savi's Workshop

Here's how to reserve a spot.

Reserve your spot in the virtual line at Disneyland

To be on the safe side, you'll need to check in to reserve your virtual spot in line using the Disneyland app. You'll need to link tickets of everyone in your group that plans on going inside. You can still enjoy the rest of the park while you're waiting to be notified to enter the Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge area. Once you receive the notification, you'll have two hours to enter the area.

To reserve your visit for Oga's Cantina and Savi's Workshop, you'll need to book a reservation by visiting https://disneyland.disney.go.com/ogas-cantina-reservations/ or https://disneyland.disney.go.com/savis-workshop-reservations/ and selecting one of the available time slots. You'll have to put down a deposit in order to reserve your spot.


Grab a space cocktail at Oga's Cantina.


Buy a valid theme park admission for Disneyland

To gain access to Galaxy's Edge, you'll need to buy tickets to the Disneyland park. Sign in with your Disney account, or sign up here if you don't have one yet.

1. Visit the Disneyland tickets page to purchase your tickets.

2. Select how many days you're planning on going to the resort.

What about Disney World?

Disney World will be opening its Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge area at the end of the month. You can now make reservations for Oga's Cantina and Savi's Workshop, and you'll need to make a reservation 180 days in advance to build your own droid at Droid Depot.

Fortunately, you won't need a reservation for the Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run ride -- it'll be first come, first serve when the park opens. That means FastPass Plus and MaxPass won't be offered for this park.

You can purchase tickets here if you're planning a trip to Disney World when the attraction opens.
