Reservations for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opened up for Disneyland Resort guests on Thursday, but it didn’t take long before all of the reservations had been claimed. Not even two hours after reservations opened at 10 a.m., Disneyland guests had claimed all available reservations during the first few weeks of the land’s opening.
UPDATE: General reservations are no longer available. Reservations are still available with a Disneyland Resort Hotel stay.

Not long after experiencing difficulties obtaining reservations for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, fans took to social media to express their opinions. While many were able to snag reservations to the new themed land, others were not so lucky. Some made the mistake of only getting a reservation for themselves instead of adding reservations for the rest of their party, and others were not able to get reservations at all. Here’s what fans had to say on Twitter today.

I know the feeling. According to the confirmation, you can't make any modifications including adding additional guests once the confirmation is final.

Am I the only person that thinks @DisneylandToday should carry this reservation system for #GalaxysEdge forward for the first year of operation? It would help reduce the madness of a park at capacity everyday, as well as ensure the guest expectation that they will get in.

Some even reported that guests were already attempting to sell their reservations on eBay. However, we’re not so sure they’ll be successful in their efforts. Disney has already shared that reservations are non-transferable and guests must show photo I.D. along with their reservation in order to visit the new land.
Why are people selling #GalaxysEdge reservations on Ebay? They gonna include their driver's license & hologram of themselves too? So dumb.

Mark it down guys. We got our first person trying to sell spots for #GalaxysEdge Knew it wouldn’t be long. But don’t know how it’ll work since it’s through a hotel reservation and they already put names down. #starwarsgalaxysedge pic.twitter.com/0E3iWA5gON

For guests who are still interested in visiting Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge within the first three weeks of opening but were not able to obtain a complimentary reservation, they can secure a reservation by staying on property at a Disneyland Resort hotel. Guests staying at the Disneyland Hotel, Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel, or Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa from May 31 through June 23 will automatically receive a designated reservation to access Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge during their stay. Keep in mind, however, that if you cancel your hotel reservation, your reservation for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will also be cancelled.
If you weren’t able to snag a reservation, don’t worry. Beginning June 24, you can access Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge without needing a reservation. Of course, no matter what time you plan to visit, you are still required to have valid admission to Disneyland park.
If you have any questions about Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge reservations, Disneyland encourages you to call (888) 834-8125 from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. any day of the week.
