LOS ANGELES – Massive crowds are expected at Disneyland when its Star Wars Galaxy's Edge land opens next week, but park officials have a plan to manage them -- and it involves Stormtroopers.
Park employees dressed as the white-armored foot soldiers may be used to encourage guests to "move along" to other parts of the theme park if they've overstayed a four-hour limit inside Galaxy's Edge. The time limit will be in place from the area's opening on May 31 until June 23.
Reservations and a special wristband are required to visit the area at the Anaheim, California, theme park for the first three weeks.
Galaxy's Edge is the largest single-theme land created inside a Disney park. The 14-acre land's marquee attraction is a ride inside a replica of the Millennium Falcon.
The "Star Wars" land at Disney World is scheduled to open Aug. 29.
