Star Wars collectors, big news: Disneyland has merch you won’t find anywhere else

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge officially held a soft opening in Disneyland in May, and a whole slew of commemorative items were released to mark the occasion.

But collectors who failed to get reservations for the new land — or don’t want to worry abut the potential crowds when it opens to the general public on June 24 — shouldn’t worry: Disney released Galaxy’s Edge-themed items throughout the Disneyland park (not just in Star Wars land) and even outside the park in Downtown Disney — meaning you don’t even need an admission ticket to get in on the action.

Disney began selling an assortment of special Galaxy’s Edge-themed items May 31; the majority of these can be found at stores throughout the Disneyland park, including the Emporium on Main Street, Star Trader, Pooh Corner and the upper level of the Star Wars Launch Bay in Tomorrowland.

They’re available at Elias & Co. in Disney California Adventure park, the World of Disney store in Downtown Disney and the shops at the Disneyland Hotel.

The items include dated t-shirts, lanyards, toys, hats, pins and other collectible memorabilia. The items won’t be available in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge (more on that here).

Dated opening-day merchandise is also available while supplies last inside Disneyland park, at the Emporium, Star Wars Launch Bay, Star Trader or Pooh Corner.

Annual passholders are also eligible for exclusive commemorative gear at all of the above locations, as well as Elias & Co. and Trolley Treats in Disney California Adventure Park, the World of Disney store in Downtown Disney and the Disneyland Hotel shops.

Disney has released photos of some of the merchandise that will be available inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, including build-your-own droids and lightsabers, plush dolls, instruments, figurines and more.
