Welcome back to The Battu Series! In this segment I am going to tell you exactly how you can get into Battu if you have not secured a reservation already, so let’s get right into it!
If you plan on going to Battu between May 31st and June 23rd you need a reservation to get into the land. There are two ways to do that. The easiest way was if you got in the virtual queue on Disneyland.com and made your reservation that way. Since those are all gone, there is now only one way to get into Battu during this period and it is to book a room at any one of the three Disneyland Resort hotels. Once you book your room you will automatically get an email with your reservation day and time. I just booked my hotel room at the Disneyland Hotel for June 1st- June 2nd and the cheapest room was $561. The next cheapest after that was $895, so if you plan to stay at one of the hotels then book it soon before prices rise.
Starting from June 24th guests WILL NOT need a reservation, but WILL be put into a virtual queue system if the land fills up to capacity. My best advice to you would be to get to the parks at opening so you can enjoy Battu as long as possible and when it is not as crowded as later in the day. If you do get placed in the virtual queue system, then I will explain how that works.
Guests will first have to have the Disneyland app and have a Disney account to be able to log into the app. (Note: Having the app is great tool to have anyway for the interactivity of Galaxy’s Edge) Once you log into the app there will be a status bar over Galaxy’s Edge stating if its not at capacity (Good to go) or it is at capacity (Virtual Queue).
Once in the Virtual Queue you will receive a boarding group that you are put into. A notification will pop up on the app alerting you when you will be able to access Galaxy’s Edge. You are able to enjoy the rest of the resort and ride other attractions until your notification pops up. When your notification pops up you will have TWO HOURS to check in to Galaxy’s Edge before your are kicked out of the Virtual Queue.
Lastly, I am going to talk about the check in process for reservations and the Virtual Queue. If you have a reservation (hotel or app) you must check on at Star Wars Launch Bay in Tomorrowland and a cast member will give you further instructions.
If you are entering via Virtual Queue, then there will be cast members stationed at the Galaxy’s Edge entrance to assist you.
So there you have it guys and gals, every possible way to get into Battu. Coming up tomorrow I will be talking about the droid building experience, and light-saber experience including the prices and the different types of droids and sabers you can build and purchase, so stay tuned as we continue our Battu Series on Galaxy’s Edge opening week!
Comment below your thoughts and further questions on the check in process and I will be very happy to answer them for you!
