Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opened at Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World on Thursday, August 29th, and people were not messing around to get a glimpse of the new land.
Some people said they arrived at 4am to line up, others had been in line since 2am. Disney employees inside Galaxy’s Edge said they began letting guests into the land around 5.
The official posted opening time of Hollywood Studios’ new $1 billion land was 6am and there were already swarms of eager guests inside.
By the time 7am rolled around, Galaxy’s Edge was closed due to capacity. Guests were unable to get in right away were put into a virtual queue via Disney's mobile app. There was a 300-minute line for the land’s only current ride, Smugglers Run, and lines for Blue Milk started at 40 minutes and went up from there.
If you're heading to Galaxy's Edge in Orlando soon, be ready for crazy crowds!
