With Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge just over a month away from opening at Walt Disney World, a cast member preview for the new land has been announced.

Eligible Walt Disney World and Florida-based cast members will have the chance to bring one guest with them to a galaxy far, far away and experience Black Spire Outpost for the first time – before it opens to the public on Aug. 29.

Registration for Walt Disney World’s cast previews will begin on Monday, July 22. Cast members can visit the events page on the HUB to choose their preferred time and date for a preview. During the registration process, cast will be asked to choose one of three experiences:

  • Experience the land and ride Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run
  • Experience the land, ride Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run, and visit Oga’s Cantina
  • Experience the land, ride Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run, and visit Savi’s Workshop – Handbuilt Lightsabers (Additional purchase required)

There are enough preview windows for every eligible cast member to experience the land during this preview period. However, each preview window is first-come, first-served and individual time slots may hit capacity.

Keep in mind that the land will open next month with only one attraction, Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run. The other attraction, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, will open to all guests on Dec. 5.
