    Do I need a reservation or additional tickets to access Star Wars attraction?

    Hello, Jessica! 

    Welcome to planDisney. It's great to help a fellow Star Wars fan, and I'm thrilled to share some tips about making the most of your visit to Batuu! 

    I'm glad to share that you don't need an extra ticket or reservation to enjoy the two attractions at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. Once there, you will find Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. You can access both through a stand-by queue, and that option is included with your ticket.

    Even though you don't need tickets or separate reservations to enjoy them, you can enhance your visit by using Lightning Lane queues. These queues will move much faster, and using them will help you save time and make the most of your time at the Disneyland Resort. Lightning Lane queues work differently in these two attractions, though.

    To use the Lightning Lane for Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, you will use Genie+. After going through the turnstiles, you will open the Disneyland Mobile App, click on the plus sign at the bottom, and choose "View My Genie Day and Tip Board." Then you should go straight to the Tip Board (on the left of the screen). You will notice that some attractions only have Standby Line information, but others will feature wait times for the Standby Line and return times for the Lightning Lane. Once you see Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run on your Tip Board, you can decide if you want to purchase Genie+ to use the Lightning Lane or if you want to use the Standby Line.

    The process will be different if you want to use the Lightning Lane for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. At this attraction, you must purchase an Individual Lightning Lane. You'll also find this option on your Tip Board, and it will save you at least two hours on a regular day. My husband and I always use this option to make the most of our time, and I hope it helps you too! 

    I hope you have the best time visiting this galaxy far, far away, Jessica! Let us know if you need more tips, and we will gladly share more tips! 

    May the magic and the Force be with you,
