(KGTV) - Visitors at Disneyland in Anaheim are having a harder time finding a place to sit while at the theme park.

According to an Orange County Register report, benches throughout the park have been quietly removed.

The effort is part of Disney’s plan to address current overcrowding issues and to make extra room for the massive crowds expected when the new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens at Disneyland in summer 2019.

Visitors may also notice the park has already removed many of the brick planters that some use for seating.

Officials said all the removed seating will be replaced in dining locations around the park.
