Please help! We are a family that lost our home in Paradise, CA on November 8th and would like to plan a Disney trip with a family of close friends who also lost their house. We are looking to save the most money possible on a Disney vacation sometime during the end of January. Can you give us some advise? We would love to get the trip planned out within this next week if possible because of time off requests needing to be turned in. Thank you! <3


Those are such valid questions. May will likely have the most temperate weather. Disney hasn't released any information on how the flow of Galaxy's Edge will be handled. However, the Orange County Register estimated that stand-by wait times for the attractions in Galaxy's Edge could reach 6 hours. In the past when new lands have opened, it generally takes a full year (sometimes longer) for initial excitement to die down. But this is Star Wars, which is really unprecedented. I would anticipate Galaxy's Edge excitement will take around two years to calm down. That's not to say that you won't be able to ride with a minimal wait, we just don't know enough yet about how ride times will be handled. Hope that helps!


I'm torn! We were thinking of going in mid August, around the time that school is starting. We have been excited about Galaxy's Edge. My five-year-old son is a total Star Wars nerd! However, those Spring ticket prices are so low, they're hard to pass up, so we're batting around the idea of early May. Also, I have been worried about that the August weather might be too hot since we have young kids, and I'm wondering if the lines for the Galaxy's Edge rides will still be really awful. (An hour wait is OK, three hours not so much.) So what would your advice be? I assume you've experienced both the summer weather and what it's like when new things have been open a couple of months.
