More Details on Galaxy’s Edge Opening Date
One of the most anticipated events for this year is the opening of Galaxy’s Edge (aka Star Wars Land). And for those who have been long awaiting an opening date reveal, we may have just gotten a little closer!
What We Know About The Opening Date
In the beginning of January, Bob Iger announced that Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim will open this June 2019. However, the opening date for the Walt Disney World Resort was still up in the air.
Originally, Galaxy’s Edge was set to open in Late Fall 2019. More recently, however, the “late” was removed and the opening was adjusted to Fall 2019.
If we get technical, Fall for 2019 ranges from September 23 – December 21, 2019. And the Free Dining offer that was just announced in January had many speculating that opening would be October 2019 at the earliest.
This past week, however, during the fiscal first-quarter earnings call we received a subtle hint. As per the call transcript provided by Motley Fool, Christine McCarthy, Disney CFO, answered a question on operating and marketing expenses. McCarthy’s response referenced the expansion opening “later in the fiscal year”.
Well folks, Disney’s fiscal year ends at the end of September! So does that mean Galaxy’s Edge could be up and running by the end of September?
When Will Galaxy’s Edge Open?
Here’s what we know. Pandora opened in Animal Kingdom on May 27, 2017 (the last Saturday of the month). Toy Story Land opened in Hollywood Studios on June 30, 2018 (the last Saturday of the month). If Galaxy’s Edge were to follow suit, open in the Fall season (as announced), and fall within the fiscal year as stated on the earnings call, we would guess Galaxy’s Edge opening would be September 28, 2019.
Keep in mind this is simply speculation at this point based on the information we have collected and research we have done.
While we still do not have an exact opening date, it sounds as though this inter-galactic project has been moving along more quickly than expected!
I, for one, cannot wait for the walls to drop and to have my chance to explore Galaxy’s Edge. When do you think the opening will take place?
