Does anyone know if this will effect regular ticket holders being able to enjoy Galaxy’s Edge? These dates just happen to coincide with our visit so I’m curious. Thank you!

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge does not open to all guests until Aug. 29. So unless you fall under these Passholder tiers, you can’t visit the new land until opening day.
