    Planning a 1-day disney park event with my family late July of this year. I know the Stars Wars land will have limited access but will this opening prohibit us from entering the park in any way with an advanced ticket purchase? Is there a max park entry?

    Welcome, Christen!

    My family, too, is counting down the days until our summer adventures at the Disneyland Resort! I'm so happy to hear that your family will get to enjoy some magical time there this summer too!

    My son is especially excited to experience the new Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge! You're correct that this land will have limited access to ensure guests get to experience it to the fullest. Because Disney is expecting such big crowds for the first few months that Galaxy's Edge is open, I understand that they do anticipate the entire Disneyland Park reaching its maximum capacity more often than usual. When that happens, guests with any kind of ticket will be unable to gain access to the park until the guest numbers go down. So, I'm glad you're planning ahead. If you plan to arrive early and be at the gates prior to opening, you should be able to get into the park to enjoy a full day. However, once you're in, I wouldn't recommend leaving the park for lunch or park hopping over to Disney California Adventure if you hope to return to Disneyland Park later in the day, because you may find it's reached capacity and may be unable to re-enter. Since you mentioned you're only going for one day, I highly recommend you purchase a Park Hopper ticket so that in the event you can't access Disneyland Park, you will be able to enjoy all the fun over at Disney California Adventure! My family and I are huge Cars fans, so Radiator Springs is actually our favorite area of the whole Disneyland Resort! Well, I guess, until we finally get to experience Galaxy's Edge, that is!

    So, arrive early and stay for the day, Christen, and you'll be in for so much magic at the Happiest Place on Earth!

    Have such fun planning this trip!
