Star Wars Galaxy's Edge virtual queue at Disneyland gives hint of how Disney will handle crowds at Disney's Hollywood Studios

Jun 20, 2019 in "Star Wars Galaxy's Edge"

Disneyland Resort has outlined how it will handle guests visiting Star Wars Galaxy's Edge later this month when the land is open to all guests and not just those with reservations as part of a resort hotel stay.

Using the Disneyland app, a virtual queue will be setup, allowing guests to save a spot in a virtual line and then receiving a time to enter the land.

Disney has said that guests visiting Star Wars Galaxy's Edge at Walt Disney World will not need reservations to enter, but the virtual queue that Disneyland is using from June 24 is very likely to be the system used at Disney's Hollywood Studios when it opens on August 29 2019.

Here is a run-down of exactly how the virtual queue will work at Disneyland.

Two of the most popular experiences that have very limited capacity, Oga's Cantina and Savis Workshop, will both require reservations backed by a credit card, with a $10 penalty for a no-show at Oga's Cantina and a $199 no-show fee at Savi's Workshop for custom lightsabers.

I would spend so much money in that shop, but there is no way I would have room for all those in my case lol

https://www.starwars.com/news/a-fan-favorite-lightsaber-makes-the-jump-to-star-wars-galaxys-edge "Following a challenge on the Disney Parks Blog, the Jedi weapon of Cal Kestis — Padawan survivor of Order 66 and starring hero of 2019’s critically acclaimed Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order video game — will make its way to Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge later next year. Cal’s will be the first lightsaber offered at Dok’s to have originated from a video game, and joins other iconic legacy lightsabers including Luke Skywalker, Rey, Darth Vader, and more, in the collection." "In addition, even more memorable legacy lightsabers will join Dok Ondar’s collection: Ahsoka Tano’s hilts and blades from Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and Count Dooku’s Sith weapon, featuring its signature elegant curved handle design along with its flourishing blade-emitter guard, will come to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge this fall." WOW, Dooku's saber looks so good! 🤯

Not sure if this has been discussed but the latest episode of “One Day at Disney” on Disney + features Jake. The droid that I am assuming was to be put into Galaxy’s Edge. They even acknowledge the whole kids putting their hands on him thing.

I love that they are doing a poll 😂 But where are Leia and Rey's? 🤔

The discussion was also going on in another thread. I believe Disneyland opened without equity actors and WDW is using at least 1 equity actor. Hopefully someone can confirm.

Jones14Sep 10, 2020

WDW’s have been Equity from the beginning. Disneyland’s aren’t covered by a union as far as I know, though.

RSoxNo1Sep 10, 2020

I don't mean to question you here, but I don't believe they used equity actors at the outset. I would certainly welcome the change if true.

MisterPenguinSep 10, 2020

I'd like Calculon to the be the droid that walks us through the light saber experience. Now *there's* drama!

ImperfectPixieSep 10, 2020

Thank you! :)

wdwmagicSep 10, 2020

I believe so

ImperfectPixieSep 10, 2020

Do we know if they'll be using equity actors for the experience?

LieutLawwSep 10, 2020

that's not how the force works
