Default Star Wars Galaxy Edge VIP tour access confirmed for Dec.

Got the phone call today. We had signed up for VIP tour for Dec 7th and asked to be kept in the loop once they knew if Galaxy Edge would be included. Found out today that Smuggler's Run and access to the land will be included. Does not look like Rise of the Resistance will be. So I guess that means FP+ for Smugglers Run when ROR opens.

If you pay for a VIP tour I would think they should include any attraction. JMI

I agree but they usually only offer it to FP+ attractions.

As far as FP goes for the Star Wars rides, I think itíll only be added when both rides have been open for a few months.

And by then there will be the option to buy your access, either by a ticketed event and/or by buying additional FPs.

I think the fact that the VIP tours will include the MF ride just means that they realise a lot of people will cancel if they donít. I donít know when the tours will start including it but I doubt it will be for the first month or two.

Awesome! Our plan is to do a tour next year. I have a friend coming with us just for SWL and a family we know will be there too. So we can split the cost.

Is there a way to ask around with people to share a VIP tour? We have 4 people and I would like to try and get to the max 10.

I"m skeptical that you've gotten the final answer. Did they not include RotR because it's not yet opened and they don't know what they're going to do? Or because it will open 2 days before you arrive and they expect the crowds to be so extreme it's off the VIP Tour list?

In either case, I'm 100% FP+ will not be offered so if VIP access isn't included, the only way to experience it as part of your day is to get to DHS at Zero Dark Thirty and rope drop it, then go on with everything else.

VIP tours will have access to the Star Wars attractions. No word on when the fastpass lines will be used.

Soooo....up to (and including 11/21) is $550 per hour with a 7 hour minimum and after the 21st through Christmas is $650 an hour. Itís too steep for us so we are out. Please feel free to use this thread to make contact with others who have posted they are interested.

Signature services said they (VIP Private Tours) would have access to the MFSR some way that doesnít wait in line, but I also asked about the cantina. The answer was no, they wonít be doing the cantina. Our family really wants the cantina more than the ride.
