When Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens to standby guests in June 24th, it will come with a virtual queue to control access into the land. As a reminder, guests who want to visit between May 31st and June 23rd will need to have made a free reservation to enter the land. There will be no standby allowed during this time window. Then, on June 24th, Disney will allow all guests visiting Disneyland to make the journey to Batuu, but with the help of a virtual queue. Here’s how it will work.
According to a post by the OC Register, guests will log in to the Disneyland app and secure their “boarding pass” to enter the land. At rope drop, guests will be able to walk directly into the land until it is full. A status bar in the app will show how full the land is at any given time. When it fills to capacity, the option to secure your boarding pass will pop up. After guests secure the pass, Disney will send a push notification to their phone when it is their turn. Guests will then have two hours to return to the land entrance to redeem their pass.
Disney hasn’t stated how long the virtual queue system will be in place for, simply stating that they will stop using it when the crowds die down and there is no longer a need for it. Disneyland is implementing this virtual queue so guests can continue to enjoy the park without the need to stand in line for Galaxy’s Edge all day.
At this time, Walt Disney World hasn’t made any operational announcements.
