While the construction of Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge continues to move along, we may now have more clarity for the opening date. There were three new Galaxy’s Edge construction permits filed with Orange County yesterday December 21st by Walt Disney Imagineering for Hollywood Studios. The project these permits refer to is for Project D, which is famously the code name for Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge.
The permits refer to: Interior fit-out for Project D, which indicates making the interior spaces suitable for occupation, one of the last steps that would occur before Galaxy’s Edge being open to the public. We still don’t have an opening date for either Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland or Hollywood Studios, and the last time we looked at Galaxy’s Edge permits we saw completion dates of the construction for December 2019, which seemed to indicate a possible Christmas-time 2019 opening in Hollywood Studios.
On these new permits the work expires on November 13th, 2019, which seems to indicate the Galaxy’s Edge construction pace has sped up a bit since the last construction permits. The Disneyland version will be open in time for D23 Expo 2019, which indicates Summer around July – August. In any case progress continues to be made in Hollywood Studios and a Fall 2019 now seems more possible.
UPDATE: Disney just announced the Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge Opening Dates will be: Disneyland – May 31, 2019; Walt Disney World – August 2019.
