If you are one of the lucky few headed to Batuu this month, you are going to need to make the most of your trip to a galaxy far, far away.
The matching 14-acre land of Star Wars: Galaxy Edge debut on May 31 at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, and on Aug. 29 at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida.
The attractions, estimated to each cost about $ 1 trillion, promise to bring many Disney park veterans back for return visits and new generation of first-time visitors. Just leave your Jedi cloak and sit down at home ̵
The new lands are set on Batuu, a new planet not yet seen on film. It's a thriving port filled with rogue traders, droids and unique alien species.
Here's everything you need to know about exploring this new planet:
to draw such a large crowds that Disney is a free reservation process for the first month of its debut. Last month, fans were allowed to sign up for 4-hour windows to visit the park between May 31 and June 23. Within two hours all reservation slots had been filled.
Guests during the initial reservation period will be given wristbands with colors corresponding to their reservation time window. These wristbands will help cast members – and stormtroopers – identify park guests that have stayed longer than their allotted time.
Beginning June 24, the Disney park will swap over to a new reservation system. Welcome to the boarding group in order to visit the country. These boarding groups will be sent push notifications to their phones when it is their turn to enter Galaxy's Edge. At Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, online reservations are planned for Star Wars: Galaxy Edge.
"They haven't announced what they'll do for crowd control," Susan Veness, author of "Walt Disney World Hacks," said. "But we suspect they'll keep people and only allow a certain number in at a time." [Disney] Disney has warned that Galaxy's Edge will be subject to capacity limits and if the country becomes overcrowded, fans will not be guaranteed entrance to.
Fans should know that Galaxy's Edge is not part of the early admission program, Magic Morning at Disneyland. The country will open at the regular park time, said Guy Selga, a writer and researcher at TouringPlans.com, which publishes the "Unofficial Guide" series of Walt Disney and Disneyland books.
But at Walt Disney World in Florida, Star War's: Galaxy Edge will be part of the Extra Extra Magic hours, which feature at 6 am Disney's guests at Disney's Hollywood Studios. "Guests willing to wake up extra early should be able to get on Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run with minimal wait," said Selga, who said he will probably be at the front of the line.
'Never tell me the odds'
Disney park guests will be able to explore the planet's Black Spire Outpost and shop as well as experience two new signature rides: Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. (Though the laugh won't open in Anaheim until later this year, after the park's grand opening.)
For a lot of people, the most exciting aspect about the Millennium Falcon ride will be exploring the interior of the ship itself, said Selga. "Groups of six will then board the cockpit and pilot or be gunners and engineers."
How well guests work together while piloting Han Solo's ship – yes, you get to flick switches and everything – will determine if they return to port unscathed or with a few dents in the hole.
"It's up to you and your flight crew to determine the fate of your ship," Asa Kalama, executive creative director at Walt Disney Imagineering, said during a Star Wars Celebration panel in Chicago last month.

You may want to get in line for the Millennium Falcon ride early if you are one of the first guests to adventure through the new park.
"We've heard they'll just stop at guests' rides when their window has closed," Selga said. "This can be changed on or after the country opens on Friday as Disney reacts to crowd patterns and wait times."
But, don't fret about long wait times. Disney is allowing guests who are in line for Millennium Falcon: Smuggler's Run to purchase snacks, use the restroom, interact with Disney workers and play in queue games through the Play Disney Parks mobile app.
"Fastpass will not be available when the country opens," said Selga. "Disney has been unclear about when they will ever be offered for Galaxy Edge attractions. Disney has also not announced any tours or VIP experiences. This could change after the country opens."
The second ride in the Park, Star Wars Rise of the Resistance, is in a bit more secrecy.

CEO Bob Iger released investors in March that ride, which will open at a later date, is "the most technologically advanced and immersive attraction" the park has ever seen.
"But we know there will be parts of the ride where guests will be on a Resistance shuttle and be caught by a First Order Star Destroyer, where they will disembark and encounter storm troopers and other Star Wars characters," said Selga.  Exploring Black Spire Outpost
Beyond the rides, Disney promises Star Wars themed entertainment and special merchandise, such as build-your-own lightsabers ($ 199, plus tax) and droids (starting at $ 99.99, plus tax).  Oga's Cantina is the local hot spot for food and drinks at the Black Spire Outpost. Patrons can sample braised shak roast, oven-roasted burra fish and smoked cadav ribs, as well as a number of alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages, including aa jedi mind trick cocktail, which has botanical flavors that are designed to start and finish with different flavors  In addition, collectors will not be able to pick up unique drink coasters only found at Oga's.
Many of these items are not available in any other location
It's usually a good idea to visit park restaurants outside of traditional eating hours. You can skip the lunchtime rush at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo and satiate yourself with Kat Saka's Kettle popcorn and a glass of blue or green milk from the Milk Stand.

"More and more, our guests want to lean into these stories; not just a spectator. We're giving them the opportunity to do just that in this country, with a new level of detail and immersion," said Scott Trowbridge, portfolio of creative executive at Walt Disney Imagineering. "Star Wars: Galaxy Edge Redefines What a Disney Experience Can Be."
Savi's workshop is another destination fans may want to queue for early in their visit to Batuu. The location is hidden from the First Order and is a place where guests will be able to make their own lightsabers. Disney has already warned that this experience may be subject to availability and reservations may be required.
During the cast member and Lucasfilm employee tour of the park last week, it became clear that this little workshop was going to be very busy once the park opened

May the force be with you
Galaxies Edge's hotly anticipated opening could redefine record-setting theme park attendance.
"It's going to break park records and increase attendance as never before," said Scott Smith, an associate professor at the University of South Carolina's College of Hospitality, Retail and Sports Management. "I'm a number guy, but it's so unprecedented. I'm hesitant to get numbers out there. But I will say it will surpass any increase in any theme park anywhere."
While Smith is a Disney expert and a Star Wars fan, he plans on staying away from the Disney parks for the first year the new Star Wars attraction is open to wait for the kinks to be worked out.
That's good advice, said Veness. "But we also know about hardcore fans because they were open this year. So they just have to be extremely patient, if they were for Flight of Passage in Pandora at Disney's Animal Kingdom."
