And, Thanks to Our Sponsor: Get Away Today Travel

As you may recall from news reports over the past few months and as Adrienne's article sending you to Batuu Boot Camp reminded, between the public opening on May 31 and June 23, even if you have a park admission ticket or annual pass to visit Disneyland, you cannot enter Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge itself without a separate reservation for the new land. Disney offered two methods for getting a reservation. The Disneyland website method, however, sold out in just a few hours, and is no longer available. The method that remains available is to stay at a Disneyland Resort hotel between May 31 and June 23, because room bookings include an automatic reservation to Galaxy's Edge. If you aren't already staying at one, you can book a stay. [MousePlanet partner Get Away Today still has a block of rooms at Disneyland Resort Hotels select dates through June 18; book online or call 1-855-GET-AWAY (1-855-438-2929) to check rates and availability.]

Note: if you still need to buy your admission tickets, MousePlanet partner Get Away Today just announced a new ticket deal offering Adults at Kids Prices on 3-day or longer tickets purchased before June 7, 2019.
