New Virtual Queuing System For Oga’s Cantina and Savi’s Workshop at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

Disney has found out that even with the “reservations” for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge it’s still busy! (You don’t say?!)

Most of the issues seem to be centered around Oga’s Cantina and the lightsaber shop called Savi’s Workshop.  Since guests are only allowed a 4-hour reservation slot, the lines for those locations ended up being incredibly long.

To solve this problem Disneyland has implemented a virtual queuing system that allows guests to reserve a time to return.

“What we’re trying to do is diffuse the long queues so that people don’t feel like that’s how they have to spend their day” Disneyland vice president Kris Theiler explained.

Those visiting Oga’s Cantina will check in there and be notified by a text message when they can return. Returning guests will then enter a special shorter queue. Sounds like a FastPass type situation.

For Savi’s Workshop guest that check-in will be given color-coded cards with suggested times to return.

The Droid Depot will continue to operate as it has been.

From now until June 23rd visitors to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will need a reservation to enter the new area. Beginning June 24th reservations will no longer be needed and it will be open to everyone.  Disney has indicated that they are working on more permanent systems for guests to assist with wait times and lines. I hope so because it’s going to be insane.

I’m very interested to see if Walt Disney World will do more than Extra, Extra Magic Hours to accommodate the crowds.

Remember, this is only Phase One of Galaxy’s Edge opening. Phase Two will happen later in the year when the new Rise of the Resistance attraction will open in Disneyland and Walt Disney World.
