While reservations just to enter Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland are no longer needed, advance reservations are REQUIRED for the extremely popular Oga’s Cantina and Savi’s Workshop lightsaber building experiences in the land at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World.
Disneyland reservations for Oga’s Cantina and Savi’s Workshop lightsaber building can be booked online through those respective links or in the Disneyland app. There are some new changes with these reservations starting June 24th you are able to book both experiences up to 14-days in advance (and Disney says soon 60-days out like dining reservations). Disney says that pending availability, some additional same-day reservation slots will also be held and made available each morning at 7 AM. Reservations at Disneyland should open up as each date of your visit hits the 14-day mark (and eventually 60 when Disney changes to that) similar to how dining works. This is different in our understanding of how things work at Walt Disney World where availability opens up for your whole trip at the same time. A new day’s reservations will open at Midnight Pacific time the same as dining does.
At Walt Disney World, because guests typically plan their visits further in advance, reservations for Oga’s Cantina, Savi’s Workshop, and the Droid Depot are currently available to book out into February 2020 with additional dates rolling out in the future. These experiences can be booked by clicking through the respective links above for each location or in the My Disney Experience app. The Droid Depot may also accommodate standby walk-ins each day, subject to availability, just like there is at the Disneyland location.
It’s easier to see what’s available if you scroll all the way over to the Morning / Afternoon / Lunch / Dinner / etc options rather than the individual hour windows. Would suggest continuing checking again every few minutes through the first 20-30 minutes as have seen it look like everything was taken, but then spots become available. If there are no time slots available, don’t refresh, but keep checking different times, as other guests time out of their 10 minutes or make other selections other slots may open up.
If when reservations first open up you are unable to get one, you can check back later and again the morning of your visit starting at 7 AM and more inventory will be released and also possible slots will open up from people who canceled the night before.
Oga’s Cantina guests with reservations must check-in at the location no earlier than 15 minutes before their booked time. After checking-in, you do generally have to wait in a queue to actually go inside, generally has been taking about 15-20 minutes from that point on our visits.
Guests with reservations for Savi’s Workshop lightsaber building can check-in no earlier than 1 hour before and no later than 20 minutes before their booked time. There is a hefty $199.99 no-show fee per builder, the full cost of the experience, charged to your card if you don’t show up for your reservation.
At Hollywood Studios for Droid Depot guests can check-in no earlier than 15 minutes before their reservation time. There is also a hefty $99.99 no-show fee per builder, the cost of the full experience.
While the “Boarding Pass” virtual queue system has so far only been used on June 24th, if in the future on busy days it gets used again, separate Boarding Passes are NOT required to enter the land if you have Savi’s or Cantina reservations. You will be allowed to enter up to 1-hour before your reservation at the Fantasyland entrance to Galaxy’s Edge by showing your reservation confirmation. Each Savi’s lightsaber building reservation will allow you to bring up to 5 additional guests into the land with you (but only 2 additional guests per builder reservation will be able to enter along with them to watch the experience). For Oga’s Cantina, the number of guests specified on the reservation will be allowed into the land. Your entire party must enter the land together.
