RUMOR – Walt Disney’s World’s Star Wars Land Delayed Until Mid-December?


It hasn’t been a good news day today if you’re a Disney World fan. On top of price hikes and more cutbacks, rumors are circulating that Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge may not open until mid-December 2019.

WDW News Today speculates that the highly anticipated addition to Hollywood Studios may not make its debut until December 16, 2019.

The reasoning? Today’s launch of the date-based ticket pricing only makes tickets available through December 16, 2019. They’re speculating that the Parks may see another increase before the debut of the new Star Wars Land, and that the timeframe is the only one that makes sense.

As of today, Walt Disney World theme park tickets can be purchased through December 16th, 2019. Based on this and current internal rumblings, it seems very likely that Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is set to open at Disney’s Hollywood Studios between December 17th and December 20th, 2019, the last days of Fall. In case you have forgotten, Disney has claimed Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge would open Fall 2019. To keep to that promise, but to offer higher ticket prices than today, these would be the only possible dates for the opening of the land.

While Disney hasn’t set a firm opening date for Disney World’s Galaxy’s Edge, the “Fall” opening they promised would definitely push into near-Winter territory. And with the crazy busy Christmas week only a week away, the crowds would be off the charts.

But it could be that the project has been slightly derailed by the rumored issues with the Falcon attraction, and the plethora of other projects being constructed at the parks right now.

Again, this is just rumor and speculation based on one source, but it would make sense by their logic. Disney has yet to release an official opening date, but we’d expect an announcement at next year’s Star Wars Celebration in April or D23 Expo in August.

Disneyland’s version of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge seems to be on track for a Spring opening.
