Toilet passes, food: Disney’s plan for long lines at Star Wars land

Meanwhile, Chris Hemsworth used this trick to sneak his daughter on a Disney ride

If you thought there were already long lines at Disneyland, be prepared for even longer queues for the opening of the new Star Wars land.

Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run opens at the new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge land on 31 May, and Disney expects some pretty lengthy lines. 


But the park has plans in place to make the wait more enjoyable (or less unpleasant) for ride-goers. 


The first is a bathroom pass, which will allow guests to use the toilet without losing their place in the queue, which would be particularly useful for those with young children. How the passes will be dispensed has yet to be revealed - though it will need to be prompt of course. 


According to PEOPLE, food and beverages will also be available to purchase for those in line. 


Additionally, Disneyland will provide entertainment - both personal and via its app - in the form of trivia (conducted by cast members) and mobile games. 


To enter Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, on its opening day and before 23 June, visitors will need to make a free booking along with their park ticket. After this, the park will issue virtual boarding passes, which will ping guests when it is their turn to visit the land.

In related news, Chris Hemsworth has admitted he snuck his daughter onto a rollercoaster - then the Tower of Terror - at Disneyland two years ago after she was deemed too short to ride. 


Appearing on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’, the Thor star said he used a couple of chocolate bars to give a little height to the then 4-year-old, India Rose.


"I grabbed a couple of Snicker bars and slammed it in the back of her shoe under the heel," he said.


"I walked up [to the Disneyland staff], was like, 'What about now?'


"And they're like, 'Okay, in you come’,".


Hemsworth admitted he had probably done the wrong thing afterwards. 


"So, we're sitting in the chair... We're at the top and I'm looking at her and she's strapped in and the seat is massive on her," he said.


"I was like maybe there's a reason there's a height sign."
