On June 24, guests at Disneyland Park in Anaheim, Calif., will be able to enter Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge without a reservation, but access might be granted via a virtual queue system if guest demand is high.

Disney released information on accessing the land when reservations are no longer required. Since Galaxy's Edge opened May 31, guests have been able to enter only with a reservation.

Starting June 24, Disneyland might use a virtual queuing system "as needed" for access to Galaxy's Edge. Guests will find out if a virtual queue will be used on any given day by checking the Disneyland app or on signage throughout the park.

If the system is being utilized, guests can use the Disneyland app to request to be part of a "boarding group" once they've entered the park. On the app, the entire party's tickets can be linked, so all can join the same boarding group.

Guests not using the Disneyland app can get assigned to a boarding group at FastPass service locations for the Haunted Mansion, Indiana Jones Adventure, Space Mountain, Splash Mountain and near the Matterhorn Bobsleds.

Once a boarding group is secured, guests can spend their time as they please in the rest of the park. When it is time for their group to enter Galaxy's Edge, they'll have two hours to do so. They will be notified in the app via a push notification on their mobile phone if it's enabled or on signage throughout Disneyland.

Reservations will be required for Savi's Workshop, where guests can build their own lightsaber, and Oga's Cantina, the main restaurant in Galaxy's Edge. If guests have reservations for either, they will not need to be part of a boarding group to enter Galaxy's Edge at the time of the reservation. Reservations can be made with a credit card beginning at 7 a.m. on the same day of a guest's visit.
