ANAHEIM, Calif. (CNS and KGTV) - Disneyland began accepting reservations Thursday morning for its $1 billion Star Wars land, which is expected to attract throngs of visitors when it opens May 31.
The 14-acre Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge land will feature two rides, four eateries, one space-themed cantina and five retail shops. The attraction is being replicated at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, but it will not open there until Aug. 29.
For the first three weeks after opening at Disneyland, only visitors with reservations will be allowed into the Star Wars land. Guests staying at the three Disneyland resort hotels between May 31 and June 23 will automatically receive reservations.
The park began accepting no-cost reservations from other visitors beginning at 10 a.m. Pacific time on this special Disneyland.com Star Wars land page.
At noon, the park tweeted that reservations were full.
UPDATE: General reservations are no longer available. Reservations are still available with a Disneyland Resort Hotel stay.

Details on the reservation process were posted online at 8 a.m. Visitors were urged to create a Disney online account before trying to make a reservation.
After the first three weeks, Disneyland will employ a "virtual queueing" system, in which parkgoers will get a boarding pass and will be called to enter the land when there is enough room, according to park officials.
