Disney's new Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge attraction at its Anaheim, California resort, has proved so popular since opening on 31 May that a virtual queuing system has been introduced to help manage crowds.

Guests can join the virtual queue upon arrival to the park through the Disney app or the resort's FastPass kiosks. They can sign up for "boarding times" from 7am and will be notified what times are available on their smartphones, with two hours to show up and enter the new land.

Millennium Falcon: Smuggler's Run has proven particularly popular. One guest revealed on social media that on one occasion the wait time for the ride had reached three hours, just six minutes after the attraction had opened in the morning.

Disneyland has released a video, explaining how best to plan a visit to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, which states that after 24 June, no reservations are required. However, entry status is available via the resort app, allowing Disneyland to switch the virtual queue on and off as required.

The Anaheim Galaxy's Edge attraction was first announced in 2015, and it is believed its final cost could top US$1bn (€879m, £786m). A second Galaxy's Edge is due to open at Walt Disney World in Florida on 29 August.
