It’s no secret Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is highly anticipated, and crowds are expected to be at record levels. One group of people who won’t be in those crowds are Disney Cast Members and Cast Member friends and family using either Cast Member or “Friends and Family” passes to Disneyland’s Parks.
A look at the Cast Member block-out calendar for the Friends and Family Main Entrance Passes, and Cast Member Employee Self-Admission Passes shows this is one step Disney is taking to manage crowds.
Starting on May 18, 2019, Cast Members’ Main Entrance Passes (for Friends and Family) and Employee Self-Admission Passes (passes Cast Members use themselves) are both blocked out at Disneyland. Cast Members can still use their Employee Self-Admission Passes at California Adventure, with the Main Entrance Passes remain blocked out at this park as well.
On Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opening day, May 31, 2019, all Cast Member passes, both Main Entrance Passes and Employee Self-Admission Passes, are blocked out for both parks into and through July, 2019.
The Cast Member pass schedule for August in Disney World is to be determined at this point in time. Remember, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens in Disney World’s Hollywood Studios on August 29, 2019, so block-out dates there could also be likely.
