As a kid growing up in Portland, one of the things I had to look forward to during the school year was our annual summer trek down the I-5 to Disneyland. I spent a good portion of the year perusing over guidebooks and park maps thinking about the attractions I enjoyed and imagining in my mind all the places we’d be sure to visit on our next trip. Although park guests with a reservation can’t officially visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge until May 31, the first park maps are out for the new land, so now is time to start planning the best route to “Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run” and which store or dining location you’re going to visit first.
At 14-acres, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is the largest expansion yet at Disneyland. Imagineers have built a ton of interactivity into its buildings and attractions. The guidemap can’t begin to capture all the little details, but it does give you an idea of what to expect.
You can also now explore the mobile park map on your Disneyland App or via the Disneyland website.
For those of us waiting for Disney’s Hollywood Studios to open on August 29, you can still enjoy looking at these maps. The lands are almost identical, the Orlando version is missing one entrance and has a slightly different look where the Rivers of America abuts the version in Anaheim.
Remember, if you don’t already have a Galaxy’s Edge reservation, you’ll need to book a stay at a Disneyland Resort hotel, which comes with a reservation, or wait until June 23rd when a new system of day-of reservations will begin.
